Ik Osakioduwa and Minnie Dlamini

Regarded as the hottest woman on South African television, Minnie, is an actress, TV presenter, radio DJ, Brand Ambassador, MC and Fashionista. Minnie broke into prominence in 2010 when she beat thousands of hopefuls in the nationwide search for a young and sassy presenter for one of South Africa’s biggest music shows. Within months, Minnie also landed a role as the sassy Miranda on the popular soap Generations, a role which opened her up to a bigger, Pan-African audience.

      LMFAO @Jenny. You have a dirty one track mind. Entertainment industry fa? Then don’t watch movies where they kiss and have sex and don’t watch Miley Cyrus gyrating/twerking with Robin Thicke. Get your head out of the gutter. Ik that is so playful, friendly and nice. Nothing stuffy about the guy. His wife is the same. It’s just a picture. Say cheese! Act over!!!

    What was/is wrong with Vimbai?

    • Shandi

      February 10, 2016 at 1:07 pm

      Nothing, she’s exceptional but they can’t be using the same set of people every time. I’m happy Vimbia and Osas are replaced this time even though I love them.

      February 11, 2016 at 5:56 pm

      So why doesn’t that apply to IK? Can’t he be replaced?

    Ik Ik the way you are always rubbing on women ehnnn and even ur comments abt ladies body parts etc when you host BBA. Your wife is really trying. I for one, I’m a very jealous person, I’m not sure I can take d way Ik is always drooling over women, I know it’s his job, but Mba my own jealousy can’t take it. Seeing that shiny wedding ring on his finger while holding Mimi’s waist looks all shade of akward to me.

      That is why you are not his wife. He chose a woman who understands him and his passion/career. Una dey take melecine for another person headache. Chai!

    The on-screen chemistry between Vimbai and Ik was quite amazing, they clicked and I was looking forward to seeing them together. Vimbai surely knows her onions!

    Madam, Le Coco. must you bring her family history to this forum actually? I don’t understand some poeple, they pretend like they are advising you while in actual fact they are trying to embarrass you. Abegi!

    And that’s how the media deceives people. Ik is definitely not the nice guy he makes himself out to be, I worked backstage at previous AMVCAs and I saw how he tried to make Vimbai look stupid. He comes across as very friendly but underneath that facade is an insecure guy who’l do anything to keep his place in the industry. Let Madame Wangi herself tell us why IK and Oc Ukeje keep getting huge favours than anyone else. Hypocrites they all are.

    The moment I saw her on the E! Special, I knew she’s host the next AM.CA’s. The ladies are almost always replaced. IK no get replacement?

    Waoh! The way things happen in this world! I am currently in Jo’Burg at the moment and I was shown this lady’s IG page yesterday. She is one of the biggest stars in SA right now. Go girl! Congrats!

    Congratulations to them on the gig. IK should please not make inappropriate comments about his co-hosts’ physical attributes. He almost always comes across as a lecherous old man. Very cringe-inducing!
