The new Infiniti Q30 has received the maximum five-star in the latest Euro NCAP Assessment.

The Infiniti Q30 gained top scores in each of these four testing categories: occupant protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and safety assist.

Occupant protection scored highly in the rigorous test program with an 84 per cent rating for adult safety. As well as a driver knee airbag, the Q30 has driver-, passenger-, front hip-thorax side and front-to-rear curtain airbags.

An automated system in the front passenger seat will turn off the front passenger airbag when someone fits a rearward facing child seat.

For Pedestrian Protection, the Q30 scored 91 per cent, a score which is determined from tests to the most important vehicle front-end structures, such as the bonnet and windshield, the bonnet leading edge and the bumper. The Q30 is equipped with a sensor that detects a pedestrian’s legs contact with the bumper and causes the hood to pop up to give more clearance between the hood surface and the hard parts of the engine to protect pedestrians.

An 81 per cent score in the Safety Assist category was due to the latest safety technologies fitted to the Q30 as part of Infiniti’s acclaimed Safety Shield system. They include Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Speed Limit Alert.

Jaguar Land Rover unveiled the all-new Jaguar F-PACE and the Range Rover Evoque Convertible during this year’s Los Angeles International Auto Show. This was among the 10 vehicles displayed. The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is the world's first luxury compact SUV convertible. Jaguar Land Rover at the 2015 Los Angeles International Auto Show On the other hand, the F-PACE is a five-seat performance crossover and the third all-new product from Jaguar this year. Designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK, the all-new F-PACE is the production version of the breakthrough C-X17 concept car and is developed from Jaguar’s lightweight Aluminium Architecture.

Subaru has launched the Levorg for the Southeast Asian market in Taipei this week. The launched featured world renowned precision driver Russ Swift and Subaru Ambassadors Natalie Pickles and Monika Sta. Maria from Asia's Next Top Model.
Not sure whether the specs are the same between the UK and Asian models. In the UK, the 1.6i GT is available in three colours Crystal White Pearl, Lapis Blue Pearl and Steel Blue Metallic. It costs £27,495 (OTR White colour).

Kia Motors unveiled the all-new Kia Sportage and European spec Kia Optima at the 66th Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA).

The Sportage remains the brand’s bestselling model in Europe, accounting for more than a quarter of Kia’s European sales.

The fourth-generation Sportage builds comprehensively on the success of the outgoing model, with an attractive, all-new exterior design, a host of advanced new technology features and greater quality. The interior of the compact SUV is made up of higher quality materials and a modern new design, as well as improved practicality and a range of technologies to improve comfort, convenience, connectivity and safety.

For the first time, a new ‘GT Line’ specification is available to Sportage customers. Designed and engineered to appeal to those looking for a sportier driving experience from their Sportage, the GT Line specification delivers all the versatility of the standard Sportage while adding greater visual and dynamic appeal to those customers that desire it.

The new Sportage will go on sale across Europe in Q1 2016.

KIA also launched the new Optima model in European specifications. This is the third-generation D-segment model since it was launched in 2010. The all-new Optima builds on the worldwide success of the existing model, with a modern, new exterior, a bold interior design with more space for all occupants, an array of new technologies and a wide choice of efficient powertrains.

It will go on sale across Europe in Q4 2015, with a high performance ‘GT’ version.

Peugeot has unveiled the new Fractal concept ahead of the Frankfurt Motor Show. This is an electric urban coupé which explores the sense of hearing in addition to sight and touch. According to Peugeot, it makes driving "even more instinctive, creating an unparalleled on-board experience".

It was designed by StelLab, a PSA Peugeot Citroën research unit. The Fractal concept was developed in partnership with sound designer Amon Tobin. It features a high-definition holographic head-up display screen. A 45-degree polycarbonate strip delivers additional information and creates an impression of depth. This allows the driver to customise the way information is shown.

The concept also explores new design and manufacturing processes. 3D-printed parts represent more than 80% of the interior trim surface. The anechoic materials were made through generative design - a process used to achieve the perfect component.

A 30 kW/h lithium-ion battery powers two electric motors, each delivering 75kW/102hp, fitted to the front and rear axles to provide a total output of 125 kW/170hp and combined-cycle autonomy of up to 450km. Variable ground clearance allows the vehicle to adapt to different types of terrain. The 7cm clearance for motorway driving improves aerodynamics to range and boost battery life. This can be increased to 11cm in urban environments, allowing the car to take speed humps and car park entrances in its stride.

As for it's dimension, the car is extremely compact, at 3.81m long and 1.77m wide, allowing it to weave through heavy traffic. The 19‑inch Tall&Narrow wheels are positioned at either end of the car, with an overhang of just 0.52m front and back to improve manoeuvrability.

The car styling features dynamic lines that flow along the length of the smooth body. The Coupe Franche, a straight line dual paint finish, further enhances the sense of vitality with a sharp shift from intense pearly white to matt black at the door hinges. The upper body features a removable roof to turn the coupé into a cabriolet. An LED strip above the vent at the rear shows the battery charge status via an equalizer-type display. These LEDs also act as rear lights when PEUGEOT FRACTAL is moving. The light signature in the front starts below the grille and flows over the headlamps. It also includes scrolling indicators.

This is a very long overdue update on my Proton Wira modifications under RM1K project.

Picking up from what I last posted, the Proton badge (meant for Proton Iswara) finally arrived but there was a problem. The original was a screw-on badge while the new one was a stick on and somehow I could not find a way to get it to stick properly on the original place. So I came up with an idea. Was not sure whether it would work but fortunately it did. I peeled off the plastic logo and super glued it on to the original screw-on base.

I also bought a new Proton Manual Car Leather Gear Knob Carbon With R3 stitching on the sides for RM50/, also from a seller on Lelong.

Definitely a great improvement on the original rounded plastic knobs which were worn out. This brought me to a new total of RM363.90.

Thinking of what to do next, I thought about the faulty reverse sensor. I have been meaning to change it for a long time but kept putting it off. So one day I drove down to the Brother's outlet near my house in PJ. However, the place was packed and I could not get any parking. I was impatient and decided to go to another car accessories place - Elegance Audio Sdn Bhd. in Kelana Jaya.

I was delighted because there were not that many customers around. Their manager Oliver Lim, came out and told me that it would cost me around RM200+ to install new reverse sensors. This was much costlier than what it would normally cost me at Brothers but I assumed that at that price their product would be of a better quality than at Brothers, which was where I had installed my old reverse sensors.

Since the shop was specialised in audio equipment and I was still under budget, I decided to install front speakers in the car. Previously it only had 2 rear Clarion speakers. The cheapest speakers was the Powerbass S-4002 4-Inch Coaxial speakers (105 W), at around RM260 a pair. A little bit steep but he assured me that the sound quality would be really great. This would nicely bring me just below my budget of a Thousand dollars and I decided to go ahead.

However, this is where it all went wrong. I was waiting inside their office with my son when the manager came in and showed me the old speakers - it was completely torn. I knew it was old but I am sure it was definitely not that bad. I now had no choice but to replace the rear speakers as well. I went along with what the manager recommended and installed a pair of EFX 6x9" rear speakers (RM480).

I was dismayed when I learnt that as the new speakers would not fit into the original speaker enclosure and they would have to cut into the rear speaker board. I wished the manager had explained that to me before I said yes.

The final damage - a whooping RM1020 in total, including the installation charges. These three items alone would have blown my small budget of RM1K at one go.

In hindsight, I could have said "No!" and this would have left me with a total budget of RM903.9. I could have then gone to Brothers and have cheaper speakers installed. But that is what you call "buyer's remorse" and I am trying hard not to have any regrets. However, I hope other people reading this would learn from my experience and make an informed choice.

I am sure that some of you are wondering "what's the difference"?

Now, I do notice that I don't have to crank up the volume and sound quality has definitely improved but no once else - neither my family members nor my friends seems to have realised the difference. The only guy who noticed is my son who went along with me and tries to put peanuts and other stuff into the holes in the speaker covers - a clear design flaw if you have hyperactive kids with itchy hands.

So my budget is blown and I have failed in my project. It was stupid anyway as an old car needs constant attention and replacement of parts. In conclusion, RM1000 goes a bit but is but a drop in the ocean if you decide to hold on to an old car and decide to "pimp it". However, on the other hand, well maintained cars can go a long way and is considerably cheaper than getting a brand new car - specially if you live in Malaysia.

Recently met an old friend after 18 long years. We were university mates and both of us ended up in the UK in quite different occupations. However, despite being only about 100 miles apart we were unable to meet up because of something or the other.

It was quite ironic that we finally met up in Malaysia, around 9000 miles away from the UK. Anyway, we got to talking about cars like car lovers usually do and the cars we drive. My friend recently bought the Ranger Rover Evoque, which coincidentally also happens to be my dream car.

We were discussing car prices and how the Evoque is quite out of my league with prices starting at RM413,888 (without insurance).  Source: Paul Tan.

My friend was visibly shocked as the cost in the UK was around £30K (OTR). That's considered quite a handsome even for a luxury brand. However, it translates to about RM180K at the current exchange rates, which means that we are paying more than double the price of the Evoque here in Malaysia as compared to the UK. 

With that amount, I can buy a 2-sty Terrace/Link House 3 bedroom house near my office in Semenyih, Selangor. So literally the Ranger Rover Evoque is a house on wheels. 

Award-winning Zimdancehall star Tocky Vibes delivered a stunning performance at the “Econet Million Dollar Storm” event held in the Harare Gardens on Saturday afternoon that must have put his critics to shame.

Despite repeatedly thrilling Zimbabwean music fans in Australia, the United Kingdom and South Africa where he has regularly toured, Tocky Vibes, who was born Obey Makamure, has often got the stick for allegedly failing to deliver at gigs in Harare.

But at the weekend event, where 50 lucky Econet subscribers walked away with $2 000 prizes with an equal number pocketing $500 each, the Mhai singer demonstrated in spectacular fashion that Harare was not too big a stage for him contrary to popular opinion.

Tocky Vibes came to the stage after Zimbabwe’s current favourite entertainer Jah Prayzah had taken the big crowd sky high with another imperious performance but the Rugare-bred youngster, who was backed by a live band, refused to be overawed.

The 22-year-old musician’s playlist included songs from Mhai Singles Collection and his latest album Toti Toti. Though the crowd warmed up to the performance of the title track of his latest album, it was clear that his old hits remain his trump cards.

Early this year when Tocky Vibes started using a live band, he seemed to struggle a bit but on Saturday there were no such glitches. The crowd was particularly impressed by the way the rising star alternated tempos as he played his various hits. It was a performance that showed that at long last Tocky Vibes and his backing band have now fashioned the right blend.

Tocky Vibes’ manager, Elvis Bokosha, attributed his charge’s impressive performance to the good sound engineers on the day.

“We have always insisted that most of the events where Tocky allegedly failed to perform well were down to poor sound. The Econet gig had a good sound engineer who consulted our own sound engineer to create the right sound for Tocky and it worked wonders,” Bokosha told the Daily News.

Tocky Vibes was so delighted with the way the crowd warmed up to his Harare Gardens performance that he decided to hold a free concert in his home suburb of Rugare later that day. Bokosha said the gig, which attracted over a thousand people from Rugare, was Tocky Vibes’ way of acknowledging their contribution to his success.

“Tocky always wants to acknowledge the support he continues to get from the people of Rugare. It was a gig we thought of at the very last moment so we are delighted that so many people, who included friends family, attended,” he said. Daily News

Former wife to Alick Macheso, Fortunate Tafadzwa Mapako, has turned to an emerging Mbare prophet in a new life outside the fame brought by her brief marriage to the Sungura giant. Fortunate Tafadzwa Mapako with pastor Paul Sanyangore.

She has been shying away from the limelight ever since her public fallout with Macheso that resulted in a divorce last year.
Fortunate Tafadzwa Mapako turns to Mbare Prophet.
However, Tafadzwa was on Sunday spotted at pastor Paul Sanyangore’s Victory World International Ministries service in Mbare.

Pastor Sanyangore called out the name Macheso and congregants turned heads hoping to see the musician but it turned out to be Tafadzwa, who went forward to meet the church leader.

However, they had their conversation off microphone and thus the rest of the congregants could not figure out what went on.

With only the pastor and close aides aware of Tafadzwa’s prayer request, there were all sorts of theories and top was that she was seeking a reunion with Macheso.

However, some were of the opinion that she was seeking deliverance to be able to manage her affairs better in her new life away from the popular musician. H Metro.

Harare City Council yesterday demolished 11 houses built on undesignated land in Glen Norah as it moves to restore sanity in the city. This comes as the city is carrying out a blitz against illegal vendors who were wreaking havoc in the central business district (CBD) selling various goods to the extent of roasting maize on pavements.
Council workers, who were protected by municipal police, destroyed 11 houses belonging to a bogus housing cooperative which were at various stages of construction along Kunzekweguta Road and at Makonye in Glen Norah.

A fortnight ago, the city had served the illegal settlers with two week-notices in terms of Section 18(2) of the Urban Councils (Model) (Use and Occupation of Land and Buildings By-Laws Statutory Instrument 109/1979).

The Urban Councils Act empowers local authorities to put and enforce by-laws that prohibit illegal structures.

Illegal structures are buildings erected without approval from the authorities.

The city’s principal communications officer Mr Michael Chideme yesterday confirmed that Harare was carrying a citywide blitz on illegal activities urging residents not to buy land without consulting the city.

“We are going ahead with the removal of illegal structures in Harare. We urge residents not to participate in illegal housing schemes because they will be the biggest losers in the end.

“We also urge anyone who has bought land illegally to report to the police for them to recover their money. We are geared for an orderly and well planned city which resonates with our vision for a world class city in 2025,” he said.

Mr Caesar Kunaka, chairperson of an alleged bogus Zimbabwe Bird housing co-operative said his members did not contest the eviction as they were served with papers two weeks ago.

“We were served with notices last week,” he said without giving further details.

Last month, Government directed municipalities to manage land use after noting that land barons were parceling out open spaces reserved for other purposes to home seekers.

Harare has roughly 20 illegal settlements.

Meanwhile illegal vending continued yesterday in most parts of the city save for areas near Town House where the city pulled down tents and broke some tables.

Although there was no action by the city in its quest to remove illegal vendors from the city’s pavements yesterday, Mr Chideme said council was going ahead with the relocation of vendors.

“It is a process we are undertaking. We will make sure the Central Business District gets the respect it deserves.

Police yesterday said they are still investigating the case in which goods, including bales of second-hand clothes worth thousands of dollars belonging to illegal vendors, were burnt to ashes in Harare last week. Unknown assailants who were reportedly driving a pick-up truck without registration numbers are said to have started the fire.

The incident occurred at the Rezende Street footbridge at around 3am and police are still investigating the suspected case of arson.

The pro-MDC-T National Vendors Union of Zimbabwe (NAVUZ) director Mr Samuel Wadzai yesterday said they had since engaged their lawyers to sue Government and Harare City Council over the issue.

“We have since engaged our lawyers and by end of tomorrow (today) all the legal processes against Government and City of Harare will be ready,” he said.

He said by yesterday they had ascertained that 38 of their members lost their wares valued over $17 000 and they were still conducting their investigations.

Some of the vendors alleged that municipal police had torched the goods.

But chief police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba last week said an informant had told police that occupants in a pick-up truck without registration number plates caused the fire.

Acting town clerk Mrs Josephine Ncube also denied the allegations that municipal police had torched the goods.

“Our investigations show that the fire was started by their (illegal vendors) guards who were trying to warm themselves,” she said.

According to the latest safety test results released by Euro NCAP, the Skoda Superb achieved 5 Stars, thanks to robust crash protection and its Autonomous Emergency Braking systems. The Superb is also equipped with crash avoidance technologies awarded under the Euro NCAP Advanced Rewards scheme such as Multi Collision Brake and Crew Protect Assist.

Among other cars tested, the Hyundai i20 supermini acheived 4 stars which is quite good for its segment, but misses out on the 5 stars due to a lack of an AEB system.

However, the Fiat Panda Cross recveived a modest 3 star rating. The supermini, based on the third-generation Panda 4x4 launched back in 2012, lacked assist technologies and also did not fare well in the latest full width crash test designed to evaluate the protection offered to smaller occupants in the driver and rear passenger seat.

Given below is the list of car safety ratings for 2015 so far, from the Euro NCAP website.

Brethren in Christ, it is with much consternation and fretting that I write this open letter to you. You have known Chichi and I for many years, and you all know that we do not address petty issues in the open. We have always chosen to conduct ourselves with dignity and humility in our dealings regarding the Body of Christ.

However, there has arisen a deep worry concerning two individuals who have been portraying themselves as men that fellowship with us and share our covering. These individuals are Passion Java and Uebert Angel, both of whom use the title of Prophet. These two individuals are not affiliated with Chichi and I, our church: New Life Covenant Church, our International Ministry Network: Jabula New Life Ministries, and Tudor Bismark Ministries. In the past, I have met with both men for brief meetings, and our interactions had been peripheral at best.
Open Letter from Bishop Bismark to Passion Java and Uebert Angel.
We, Chichi and I and the ministries under our covering, do not endorse Passion Java and Uebert Angel, nor do we fellowship with them in any way. We have not sent them nor do they represent us in any capacity.

I must apologize for having to bring this to public light, but it is important that you, our supporters and friends, know that the values Chichi and I hold so dear, should never be misrepresented by anyone making baseless claims as to their affiliation with us. We have carved out a reputation over many years of walking upright in faith, and we will not allow a few individuals to corrupt or taint that.
Open Letter from Bishop Bismark to Passion Java and Uebert Angel.
If there are any questions concerning this matter, please feel free to contact my offices:

We thank you for your patience and understanding, and your prayers as we navigate this season in our ministry. Bishop Tudor Bismark

Top local hip-hop musician Desmond Chideme affectionately known by his legion of fans as Stunner has been nominated among the Top 20 African Best Hip Hop artistes.

The nomination was posted on South African social media site sahiphopmag recently and caused a stir with many hip-hop fans immediately questioning how the compilers had come up with the list.

The “Dhafukorera” hitmaker is the only Zimbabwean on the list which includes the likes of Nigerian kingpin Olamide, South Africa’s K.O, award-winning Ghanain Manifest and Botswana former Big Brother housemate Zeus.
Stunner makes waves... Rated among Africa’s Top 20 hip-hop artistes.
The listers described him as definitely Zimbabwe’s most influential rapper and most successful at the moment.

“His art has taken him around the world and his music managed to get him nominations at award ceremonies in and outside Zimbabwe,” reads part of their citation.

Stunner, who came back from his tour last week, told this paper that he is overwhelmed with the recognition.

He said it will go a long way in developing his career as an artiste.

“With a little support from our locals, there is no reason for us not to be in the top 10 next year. I have done some good quality songs and videos that I have not released yet, so all I need now is the country’s support. Got a hand from a few Zimbabweans in the US and I’m thankful to David Gwatidzo and Lewis from Indianapolis. This is not the time to celebrate but to work towards the prize,” he said.

A music critic in Zimbabwe said Stunner deserved the nomination and given a chance he will scoop international awards.

“I think it’s high time Africa appreciated the talent we have. We are tired of having South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana and all others dominating. Stunner is a force to reckon and believe you me he is the next big thing to happen in Africa.

“I like how he can easily ride on several beats and his composure in music. Recently in US, we heard he turned heads not only with his music but fashion sense as well,” he said.

Meanwhile, for the past weeks The Tazzoita Cash Records CEO has been fighting with award-winning gospel rapper Mudiwa after the two released the same song, with the similar title – ‘Vandikonewa’.

Both songs features Craig Bone on the chorus. A comparison of the tracks on Star Fm’s saw Stunner’s “Vandikonewa” beat Mudiwa’s “Vegodo Vandikonewa” with four votes while the gospel rapper had one.

The two have since gone on to release diss songs apparently aimed at each other. The Herald

When a human being was created by God he placed a brain in them. The brain has two parts the storage space where information is kept to be retrieved when needed.

The problem we have as Christians is that we quickly forget. If one remembers it is easy for them to pray and praise God. If you do not remember what God has done in your life you find no reason to praise God. If you quickly forget you lack words in prayer but it is the Holy Spirit’s mandate to remind you. The devil fights to take control of your brain so that you cannot praise or worship God. You cannot go for an hour praising and worshipping.

God because the part of your brain that causes you to remember is blocked. Marriages are failing today because people are forgetting the past good days and only focusing on the negative. If you focus on the good you will find reason to stand by your marriage. If our remembrance is activated we will receive powerful miracles.

Prophet W. Magaya Teaching: The power of remembrance.
John 14 v 25 – 26. These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Ex 14 v 11 – 12 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? Wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt? Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

Ostriches cannot fly because they have long necks that deter them from flying because when it tries the neck is a reminder that it can’t carry the rest of its body because it is big. You ought to forget about your limitations and bear in your mind that God is the greater and he can do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ever think or imagine. The problem with the world today is that we forget the great things God would have done for us. When God presents himself to anyone he ensures that he reminds the person of his past so that they remember all he has done in the past. Most Christians do not read or hardly read their bibles hence they cannot remember the power God bears and His capabilities.

When the Israelites were faced with the Red sea they totally forgot the plagues God had saved them from and all the miracles they saw. The devil ensures that we forget about the mighty things God would have done over our lives so that we lose focus and find no reason to praise God. To release a new miracle you need to recognize the old miracles but your remembrance is blocked.

Despite the situation you could ever be faced with you need to stand by God and know that He is able. God has done it before. He can never fail you hold on to God. God separated the Red sea and the Israelites crossed over and two days later they were complaining of hunger. They had totally forgotten of the power of God they experienced. They were given manna and another problem developed and they were now complaining of thirst and wished to go back to Egypt. God provided water for them and before long they complained also of the scorching heat and God came in for them and solved the problem.

You should not be found complaining but instead know that God is able, no situation is too hard for Him. You should not remember your situation more than the power of God. You should focus on what the Lord has done for you more than any problem you can be faced with. Keep in mind that God is able. He has a solution to any situation you might be presented with, you need to remember His good deeds. He is able to solve anything. Whatever you are facing is nothing in the eyes of God. Doctors base on past records to determine whether one can be healed or not the same system works with God. You need to remember. The good things He has done in the past for you and others and he will surely do it for you. You need to remember what God has done for you and praise and worship Him for that. You need to remember where God took you from and be grateful to Him for where he has placed you. Remember the days where you could not do what you are doing now and be grateful to God. If you are forgetting pray tonight that God reminds you. The moment you start appreciating what God has done in your life He will give you so much more. God is carrying you every day for your life but you choose not to focus on that.

You character changes because you quickly forget and you end up showing off forgetting where God raised you up from. You change the way you talk and handle people because you would have forgotten and that is how pride gains entry into you. Do not be overwhelmed by now, it is or paramount important that you remember your past. Learn to appreciate God because of your past and that should give you strength to go on and anticipate greater things. Husbands tend to forget their wives when they accumulate a bit of wealth they forget about the old days when they suffered with their wives. You should never forget the old days because they are the reason you are where you are today. It is in the mind of God for you to remember where you came from and where you are. Married men and women tend to magnify one’s mistake over the many good things their spouse would have done in the past. The moment you remember what God has done for you be ready for the next miracle.

Jacob created an altar and anointed it in order to remember what God had done. There are fights in families because people are forgetting what the other party would have gone through for them. You have to remember what you went through so that you do not develop hatred or bitterness over people, you need to remember. You need to remember whoever assisted you and what you went through. You need to have the same character as God, a character of keeping records so that you remember. That’s the reason why we have a bible to remind us of the greater things He did and He can still do in your own life. Abraham and Sarah had a child at 99 so as long you have not reached that age then know that there is still a chance. You need to remember in order for you to appreciate and praise Go. You need to recall the rivers you have crossed where God took you from. You should also remember that God is you shield. You should always remember that you are blessed in you coming and you going. Always remember that you have grace of all time. Always Remember!

We give all glory to God.

Peugeot Malaysia just launched the new 2015 508 facelift sedan. There are three variants, namely the Peugeot 508 THP (est. RM175,000), 508 SW THP (est. RM185,000) and 508 GT (est. RM205,000).

So what's new?

Well the cars feature completely updated exteriors, new engines and new interior designs.

The most visible external design change is the vertically oriented front grille with the Peugeot lion logo in the middle.

With just a few hours to go, here's my best shot at some sort of prediction as to what we've got in store in Vienna.

Unlike previous years, there really isn't one stand-out song for 2015. Quite a few have their merits and, as rehearsals have come and gone, several have gone down well with the audience there but not always the same ones each time! There are good songs and good performances but not necessarily do the two come together, or, at least, few have so far and none have combined the best of both.

There is a clear Top 3 from which the winner is likely to emerge: Sweden, the almost permanent bookies' favourite to date, Russia and Italy. Now, on a normal Eurovision night, Italy would walk this with Il Volo having experience, lots of fans as they've been doing this for ages and it's a superb moody, operatic type of song that even people who don't go to operas quite admire and can be inclined to vote for. The trouble is that, so far, the three guys have not exactly stunned observers with their performance and it is all about the vocals; there are no marks for the nice suits.

Russia would love to win and give two fingers to Europe as it celebrates a year since annexation of Crimea and they have the absolute classic Euro ballad and a lovely lady to sing it. She sings it extremely well and has hardly put a foot wrong throughout the build up but somehow I feel she'll be pipped at the post by someone.

Sweden have a good late 80s number and some fabulous graphics on our screens and it may well be their night but I just don't see it. They'll get loads of huit points but I just feel the douze points will be dished out very broadly and they'll be close but not kissing the beard at the end. Actually, that's probably a good reason  why Russia might prefer to come 2nd after all. Not the sort of thing they'd want to show on the old Soviet Station Entertainment Channel.

After those three there are a couple who have been battling away all week: Belgium and Australia. Belgium have a weird song but an inspired young lad singing it and he has been one of those few that have really got high approval ratings from the people listening and watching. Belgium came from being completely ignored and maybe not even getting through the Semis to a definite contender for at least 4th place at one point. Australia also have a cool chap singing and it's a pretty current sort of track but I think it's a bit bland. He can sing and perform well but however hard he tries, and he will try, there's something missing in the whole thing. So, all those waking up early in Oz to watch the show will be disappointed, I reckon. And anyway, surely you can't invite some country on the other side of the planet to join in your 60th Anniversary celebrations and then let them win the prize for the night, do you? No. They wouldn't even get to host the damn thing next year so it would all be cocked up and some runner-up or, probably United Kingdom, will have to stump up the cost of it next time. I suppose we could give it to the Scots to host. They'd like that.

So it could be Belgium but that would require voting groups to be pretty young and spaced out. If they're old or don't like chocolate then they'll choose Italy or someone else.

That someone else might be from the third group: Estonia, Serbia and Norway. No, let's rule out Estonia and Norway straightaway. They have excellent songs and very good singers but Norway's is quite worryingly dark and we never do get to find out what he did as a child. No way can that be allowed to win and we're not going to humming that in the car on the way to work on Tuesday. Estonia's is nice an catchy but it's also pretty gloomy and it would take voting groups comprising near suicidal thirty somethings to give this douze points. It will do well, for sure but not well enough. That leaves Serbia. Now, the jolly fat lady that sings this has a sort of vive la difference approach and this is all jolly politically correct. Now we haven't got to sit through 2 minutes of Finland's special needs chaps croaking at us out of time and out of tune, Serbia is the natural choice for the do-gooders out there in voting land. Terrible song but when the fat lady sings it might be all over as she really can belt it out and many supporters of all sizes will like that. I don't but I have to accept it is a contender.

We're now down to the lower regions of the left hand side of the board and there are several scrabbling to make the Top Ten and in amongst these are a couple of possible winners. First, there's a 16 year old who looks about thirty eight singing about Mama for Israel. It may not be Mama at all but it sounds like that at the start. he also has the most annoying lyrics of the whole competition and we all know how well songs with crap lyrics do. Listen out for the Leave -Tel Aviv rhyme! He, like Belgium's lad, had lots and lots of audience approval and rehearsals have been great for him. Such a bad song, though. But still, he has a chance. I'll hate it happening after several years of reasonably good results but maybe it's time for crap again. If it weren't Israel then it would be rather more possible but as Israel seldom gets great support across the forty voting nations I think they'll finish up Top Ten and that's not bad.

The other contender in this batch is Spain. Now I love this one. It has a really powerful structure and all the key changes and expression that a big ballad type of number needs to satisfy lots of nation's older voters. It's my personal choice to win but I remember having similar enthusiasm for a similar Spanish entry a few years ago which got about eight votes in total and that was probably from Portugal. So I am wise enough to accept that Spain simply doesn't cut it with the rest of what comprises Eurovision for some reason my knowledge of history is too poor to fathom. If, however, the voters are also similarly lacking concern for whatever may or may not have gone before then this would be a strong contender. there are signs that the young lady performing has done a good job so far and is up there with Russia on the looks and voice front, possibly also the front front now I think of it too. So if Italy's boys disappoint and voters still disapprove of Big Red's antics over the year then Spain will be the nation that gets the ballad lovers votes and may be in with a chance after all.

Sharing the scrabble for the left side of the board are the old USSR states Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. They may dislike each other quite a lot but they dislike most of Western Europe as much so will be guaranteed not only to stifle the points tally for contenders like Italy, Sweden, Spain and the boy Belgium but also to award each other and Russia douze points as well as doling out the twelves to the likes of Slovenia and Latvia and maybe even Lithuania. It is for that reason that Azerbaijan always comes in the top five and even won once. They have lots of money and neighbouring states don't particularly want to argue. Even Russia feels it needs to keep in with Azerbaijan. So they'll do well. they won't win as it is not a good number at all but they'll get plenty of points.

Georgia has one of the sexiest girls on the stage and she'll be doing things with feathers and wings that may frighten us but it's all good traditional Eurovision stuff. And there isn't that much around this year so Georgia will be up there doing fine, maybe even beating Azerbaijan. Both will knock Armenia into a cocked hat unless some deals have been done behind the scenes. Armenia hold quite some sway from the southern parts of the old Soviet Union and, again, may do well with a terrible number.

So, who's left? Slovenia and Lithuania have lovely catchy Europoppy numbers. If they happen to perform exceptionally well then their sort of half-way-house status between East and West may just get them enough sixes and sevens to complicate the top part of the board. I feel it's unlikely. Slovenia were once very much fancied but their performances have been lacklustre when they needed to be really sparkly to work. All is not yet lost but I don't see them making the top spot now.

Oh, yes, then there's United Kingdom. I honestly have no idea how they'll do this year. we have had a disastrous run so far. Last year we tried the cliches but it was flawed lyrically and uninspired performance-wise. This year I think the couple will put on a good show and sing well but a 1920s style mixed up with slightly sad electro-pop may only appeal to half a dozen people in Latvia or Lithuania. I don't see any douze points coming our way at all but we won't be bottom.

Bottom has plenty of contenders already. This is the 'other' group. they're hardly worth mentioning as they're all pretty bad. Well, Montenegro isn't bad at all but it is extremely old-fashioned and with so few Baltic states in this year they simply won't get enough friendly support to win. Germany has a dreadful 1940s look and feel about it. Not a good look or sound. Apparently the girl singing is actually not the act that won the competition for the Germany entry this year. Austria have an appallingly boring band of blokes with 1970s hair. Clearly Vienna doesn't want the cost and inconvenience of this charade again in a hurry! Latvia, Poland and Portugal will both shout at you a lot. Good times to make some tea or heat up the pizza.

Romania, Albania, Greece and Cyprus are the others you'll hear but probably not notice. The Cyprus bloke is a pleasant chap and the song trundles along but unless he does something exceptional he will stay with the others in this bottom section where nothing is likely to happen, France have a nice song but you'll not recall anything about it afterwards.

Last in my commentary come Hungary. Hungary could have taken the whole show but keep messing up their rehearsals and voters appear to have given up now. At one point I might have had them as a potential winner but now I fear they might come last. Quite an extreme situation and they are worth watching as they might just upset everything on what could be a close night.

So a class performance from Italy, Belgium or Spain could make any of them top five. It'll be Russia in second place and hopes for a #1 slot could be all over for Sweden after the fat lady has sung. Serbia might just win.

All seems not rosy for Big Brother lovebirds, Pokello and Elikem. The two seem to have hit a rough patch again.

Lately their lovey dovey antic has been on the decline and Pokello has been posting cryptic updates on her Instagram alluding to love troubles.

The self-styled Queen of Swagger in one message said : “Your Actions will never change how I do me. But they will change how I do You.” In another she said : “Don’t allow anyone to become comfortable with disappointing you.”
Pokello and Elikem at it again.
Meanwhile in Ghana, Elikem appeared at the Golden Movie Awards wearing black. He said :” All black because I’m mourning.”

The pair had a very public bitter fallout last year over Elikem’s ex sugar mama, the wife of some Ghana footballer. Apparently Elikem has an incorrigible penchant for them older ladies. The two later patched things up but it appears the long distance between them is proving a huge challenge.

Controversial gospel musician Gift Mahlupeka has taken a dig at fellow gospel musician Mathias Mhere on Facebook and accused him of peddling rumours about his wife.

Through the Facebook post, Gift insisted that he never cheated with Mhere’s wife and accused the later of destroying his marriage for fame.

“Yeah they have started again, now hanzi my better half is now paralised kkkkkkkkkkk. Handidzore tsvimbo; am singing for the glory of God not for fame yet they are destroying their marriages for fame. I thought they sacrificed my life zvikakwana, vasiye varonge. My sweetheart isn’t paralysed as they want her to. You can persecute my flesh but as long as my heart pumps, I will carry on. luv u ol mwaaaa. remember ukasimudzwa nenyika ndiyo ichakuwisira pasi,” posted Gift on Facebook.
Gift Mahlupeka says Mathias Mhere is targeting my wife.
Gift is infamous for being implicated in an adultery scandal by Mhere who accused him of dating his wife in a story that rocked the gospel music industry a couple of months ago. Gift said he will continue singing for the Lord despite attacks to his reputation.

“Hapana chokumirira, they can persecute to the last but kana vasati vabata mweya wangu I will sing for the Lord. As for the Mhere isue, I have decided that I will not comment anymore,” he said.

Word has gone round alleging that Gift’s wife had a stroke, claims which he dismissed. He also took to social networking website Facebook to register his displeasure, suspecting that the Mhere camp could be the one spreading the rumour.

“My wife is fine. She never stroked as they are saying. It is painful that someone wishes for the ailment of someone but I’m happy she is fine. I know he is the one saying my sweetheart stroked but Mwari wandonamata mukuru, she cannot be paralysed because someone wants her to be,” he wrote.

When reached for comment, Mathias Mhere said he hard about Gift’s Facebook post but said he is not following it.

“I have heard that he posted something on Facebook. He even sang about it (his response to the adultery scandal) in his song but I can no longer comment about it. This is something that happened some time back and I’m no longer following it,” said the Favour hit maker.

Despite the Facebook post, Gift also said he will not comment about Mhere anymore, insisting that he is focusing on his career. He released a song titled Simudzwa naJesu after the scandal with Mhere and he was explaining himself in the song. The controversial musician who reportedly has a pending rape scandal with the police further claimed that he never cheated with Mhere’s wife, Susan Dzinamarira. He said Mhere was fabricating the issue for fame in a bid to market his latest album, Glory to Glory.

“I am an artiste and a minister of the word. After a terrible life experience I learnt something. So as an artiste I had to share the lesson with others,” he said.

All his life when he recorded his debut single in 1975 to this day – 61 albums on – Oliver Mtukudzi has written and performed some of the most heart rending music against hatred and violence. He has composed music appealing for restraint, for tolerance…music about self-discipline and peace amongst the people of the world. His music has continued to touch people in many different ways, guiding and stirring past generations in the same manner the compositions will impact on the future. In this abridgement of Oliver Mtukudzi: The music…the man…the story, SHEPHERD MUTAMBA attempts an insight into the work and philosophy of one of music’s own legends.

In the beginning

Oliver’s musical career started at the age of 23 with the 1975 release of his debut single, Stop After Orange. He only went professional two years later in 1977 teaming up with Thomas Mapfumo at the famous Wagon Wheels Band and recording Dzandimomotera which was inspired directly by Zimbabwe’s 1970s war of liberation. The song depicted the black man’s life struggles under the minority white settler regime.
Tuku Tribute: Oliver Mtukudzi Biography
In 1979 Oliver left Wagon Wheels to launch a solo career and forming his own band The Black Spirits – a group of rag-tag young stylish ghetto boys who were to become a sure force on the music scene, progressing into a household name in the ensuing years.

Oliver recalls: “When we left the Wagon Wheels, we thought we would continue using the same name (Wagon Wheels) but the management we had left behind put together another band which they called by the same name. Naturally we thought the continued use of the name would confuse people and we came up with our own name, The Black Spirits.”

In terms of lyrical composition, in the period leading to Zimbabwe’s 1980 independence, Oliver’s music was a mix of the revolutionary jam songs with undertones targeting the repressive Rhodesian regime. Yet he also composed the day-to-day social context music about life and the essence of ubantu (humanity).

Music against oppression

“Before independence it was the fight against the Rhodesian regime. My music then spoke against oppression and the repressive regime and how we were suffering at the hands of the regime. I left school and for three years I couldn’t find a job yet I was one of the few guys among my peers with a fine secondary education. But I couldn’t get a job because I was black. My music then helped people identify themselves…who we were and what we wanted to be.”

In all his music in pre-independence Oliver never took on the Rhodesian regime head-on preferring the power of metaphor to communicate meaning.

“I wasn’t afraid of anyone. The beauty of the Shona language (the majority vernacular language in Zimbabwe) is that it is endowed with all those rich idioms and metaphor…and the beauty of art is that you can use the power of language to craft particular meaning without necessarily giving it away. So, I used the beauty of Shona to communicate in my own way and people got the message.

“At independence I did praise songs just like most of the artists during that era because it was justifiably celebration time. I did songs like Zimbabwe that was celebratory music…songs like Gore reMasimba eVanhu (Year of the People’s Power). I was celebrating the demise of the regime and the advent of black majority rule. But over and above celebrating I was also singing about self-discipline and restraint in that new era be it at social or political level.”

To this day Oliver incorporates the aspect of self-discipline and tolerance in his repertoires. He is emotional about the socio-cultural norms and principles that govern the Shona traditional way of life particularly the respect for the next person.

The West Nkosi experience

As his music made waves in the 1970s his popularity rose. His writing prowess and style of singing attracted big names among African producers among them West Nkosi – a respected South African who came to Zimbabwe in search of music.

Was Oliver’s music to lose its originality after Nkosi’s South African influence?
“I don’t think the influence of South Africa was there. It’s just that I introduced the keyboard in my music. And South Africans then were using the keyboard a lot in their music. So when I introduced the keyboard people said West Nkosi was influencing me.

“One thing about our music and South African music is that the music is the same, really. If it weren’t for a handful of people who created these geographical boundaries we would be the same people in many respects. West Nkosi came to produce me because he was looking for new sound and if he was to influence my music he was going to get the same sound that he was running away from in South Africa. He wanted fresh music so he got me, Zexie Manatsa, Susan Mapfumo…all of us.”

Success did not come easy for Oliver who also hit hard times along the way, splitting with his band but moving on with other backing groups notably the KweKwe based Zig Zag Band in Zimbabwe’s Midlands province, 213 kilometers south of Harare, where Oliver relocated and also lived for many years.
Institution of The Black Spirits

Despite splitting with The Black Spirits, reuniting but losing other members in the process, over fundamental business etiquette, Oliver has always spoken well about the institution of The Black Spirits and the many members who have been part of the band over the last 35 years.

“It is quite obvious that every member of The Black Spirits, past and current, is unique in his and her own way and I truly believe God does not duplicate talent. All the guys I have played with had their own individual contribution to my music.

I cannot be said to have mentored all those I have played with in The Black Spirits because we are talking about talent here and not education. The education part only came when and where I would advise them on how the song would go but I am and was always open to their contributions when arranging music. I actually learnt a lot from all the band members.”

SOUTH AFRICA – Two members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) based in the North West have been involved in a sex scandal after an image of them in bed made its rounds on social networks.

Speaking to The Citizen, Sehloho said he had been dating Montsho for over a year and they were both unmarried
EFF rocked by sex scandal: report
The two members, Thabo Sehloho and Diseko Montsho are senior officials of the party.

Sehloho is the acting secretary while Montsho is a member of the provincial executive. The Citizen reports that an image of the two in bed, taken by a friend, started circulating on social media. A complaint was then laid and the matter escalated to Commander in Chief, Julius Malema.

The image was posted to a Facebook group, seemingly run by an insider. The post reads in part: “Our source also revealed that Diseko has also bragged that she sleeps with executive members as a token of appreciation for being roped in as a Provincial Command Team member.”

The post goes on to point out that other members of the party are involved in sex for favours affairs, citing Montsho and Sehloho as prime examples.

Malema is said to have dismissed the complaint after Sehloho said he wanted the party to act against the people who posted the image.

Sehloho however, was under the impression a video was leaked and because an image was circulated instead, Malema declined to investigate further. Speaking to The Citizen, Sehloho said he had been dating Montsho for over a year and they were both unmarried. Times Live

OMG! Christina Aguilera's impressions of fellow celebrities Miley Cyrus, Cher, Britney Spears, Sia, Lady Gaga, and Shakira almost stole the show on Tuesday, May 19's The Voice finale!

The "Beautiful" singer, who came into the finale show without any contestants left to mentor, ended up having a totally starring role when she dressed up as a bunch of her favorite stars and did impersonations of them auditioning for roles as judges on the programme.
Christina Aguilera
The 34-year-old singer already showed off her impressive impersonation skills during a game on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show back in February, when she sang “This Little Piggy” to the tune of Spears' song "Hit Me Baby (One More Time)."

PHOTOS: Christina's hair evolution

But the amazingly talented mom-of-two took her performance to a whole new level on Tuesday, carrying off her portrayal of her fellow artist so impressively it felt like a Saturday Night Live sketch!

Her totally hilarious dead pan impersonation of Cher, questioning if Adam Levine is her accountant, and who the heck Blake Sheling (Shelton) is, will have you in stitches! Not to mention Shakira's long, endless, intensely serious descriptions of a contestant's performance, and Spears' totally ditzy glee at getting to take a ride in the spinning chair ("Again! Again!").

Watch the whole amazing sketch in the video above and tell Us: Will Britney think it's funny?!

Tuesday night (May 19) marked the season finale of Dancing With the Stars and not only did viewers find out who the winner of Season 20 is, but Sia also stopped by to give another unexpected performance.
Watch Sia's Performance of 'Elastic Heart' on 'Dancing With the Stars' Finale

First up, Rumer Willis went home the champ this season, gaining not only bragging rights but also the show's famed mirror ball trophy. The actress, and her pro dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy partner, beat out musician and Glee actor Riker Lynch as well as former United States Army soldier Noah Galloway.

As for Sia's performance of "Elastic Heart," the singer, of course, appeared with her face disguised as siblings Derek and Julianne Hough served up enough dancing theatrics to keep everyone entertained.
Featuring Derek and Julianne mini-me's, as well as the dancers themselves, the performance was an emotional interpretive dance. While the two sets of dancers performed in mirroring dances, Sia sang in the back of the stage, narrating their on-stage struggles.

You can watch the performance below.

Asked to make a comment on his sentiments toward Star FM, this is what the producer had to say. Please note that the content of this article have been solely provided by the producer.

I tried to deal with Star FM confidentially but now I am coming out in the public, Id like to take this time to remind all the Star FM DJs that, the radio is not your personal jukeboxes. All corrupt personnel will be dealt with accordingly, Male DJs who want sex for airplay will be dealt with. For the confidentiality of the female personnel involved I will only release the list and photo evidences in court. It doesn't make sense when only 5 out of 20 songs on Star Fm charts are local. This is a breach of Zimbabwe broadcasting act.

What happened to the 75 percent local content. These so called DJs are so busy promoting the Beyonces and Jay Z who contribute nothing to our economy and who do not pay tax in Zimbabwe. The link below is my open letter to Star FM. Please forward this until relevant authorities see this unpatriotic act by Star FM personnel.
Zim Producers says Star FM is a disgrace to all who died for our Liberation?
Mbuya Nehanda, Sekuru Kaguvi, Leopold Takawira, Hebert Chitepo did not die so that we can play Beyonces on our radio, Robert Mugabe was not arrested for more that 10 years so DJs can promote American and British music.

If Nehanda was alive would you play Jay Zee for her. The entire station is boycotting Soul Jah Love just because he had a fight with one of Star Fm Dj. I don't know which law they used to boycott him or if they had a court order to do so. These Star FM sellouts are becoming big headed, Soul Jah Love makes music for the nation, not for himself but for millions of Zimbabweans, now how do you justify depriving the entire nation off good music? If Soul Jah love was so bad how about fraudsters, murders, corrupts and thieves working for the radio, why are they not fired? Munhu akatukana nemunhu just because vatorerana mabhebhi otonouraya whole career yemunhu?

Did our war Heroes die that we could play American music on our Radio Stations?
Star FM; don't use the radio to get ladies and sex and most of you are blinging with clothes and jewelry from promoters, Radio is a Public Service and i have a constitutional right to a public opinion and scrutiny. This is a dispute and should be addressed immediately, I am a guy who never gets tired of fighting for my country. Attached Below is my Notice to Star FM which i have decided to turn into an open letter. No offense is intended and if any of Star FM staff is offended by my epistle then they are a sellout, Dzakutsaku.

Pretty much everyone agrees that Kim Kardashian's Met Ball dress this year was basically Beyonce's Met Ball dress from last year. And, to say that the reality star occasionally gleans fashion inspo from Queen B isn't exactly a stretch.
Beyoncé Embraces Colorblocking Trend In Head-To-Toe Neon
But, Beyoncé may have just — inadvertently, of course — figured out a way to put an end to the copycatting. Yesterday, she was spotted in New York City wearing tropical hues from head to toe. Kim hasn't worn anything brighter than beige practically since she started dating Kanye (he even famously threw away all of her pre-Yeezy clothes). It’s safe to assume she's not about to start now.

Regardless of Kanye's current preferred palette, he'd undoubtedly be down with B's outstanding colorblock outfit. The orange pencil skirt and fuchsia blouse are certainly not an obvious pairing, especially teamed with royal blue Prada platforms and a matching trench. But, it all comes together seamlessly, because the silhouette is understated and she kept accessories to a minimum. Here’s how to steal the outfit (unless you’re a Kardashian, in which case, you likely already know). Continued Here

A pastor with a Bulawayo church allegedly “legalised” a degree of incest by reportedly solemnising the marriage of one of his congregants and his cousin which was allegedly “frowned” upon by the two’s close relatives.

The union of Lewis Makoni (37) and his biological aunt’s daughter, Portia Sibanda (22), smacks of incest, as the two are closely related. The arrangement means Lewis’ aunt is also his mother-in-law.

According to a source from the church, senior members from the two lovebirds’ families allegedly snubbed the wedding which was held on 2 May at Selbourne Park Christian Church claiming it was a “curse and disgrace” to the family.
A pastor with a Bulawayo church allegedly “legalised” a degree of incest by reportedly solemnising the marriage of one of his congregants and his cousin which was allegedly “frowned” upon by the two’s close relatives.
“Although the wedding was attended mostly by church members, senior members from the Makoni and Sibanda families were conspicuous by their absence. The arrangement caused serious disagreements within the Makoni family.

“Lewis is alleged to have defied his elder brothers, other aunts and uncles’ order to stop him from marrying Portia.

He bluntly told them that even though he knew that Portia was his cousin he was following his heart to marry her.

The church proceeded with the wedding with the blessing of the two lovebirds’ parents,” said a source that preferred anonymity.

A senior member of the Makoni family who spoke to B-Metro confirmed that the marriage took place but it was without their blessings.

“I can confirm that the marriage took place but we didn’t go there as we felt it was a disgrace to the family. Some church members confided with us that the two were joined at their church but some of us feel the arrangement was really a sham to the family,” said a member of the church who also requested anonymity.

When contacted for comment Portia who chose to keep tight-lipped handed over the phone to her husband, who said:

“What is it that you want to know from us? Go and inquire from those people who gave you the story. It is not our business to discuss such matters with you.”

Portia’s mother Christine Banda refused to speak to this reporter saying she was not at liberty to discuss family issues in the newspaper.
