Jambo Zanzibar!

Being on an aeroplane, with no cellphone and no internet access, does much to help a girl catch up on her blogging. I’m used to travelling on my own so this flight feels a little like a school trip – only we’re grown up and there are no teachers to keep order (okay, maybe the flight attendants count). I’m with a group of ten of  South Africa’s celebs and their competition winners on the 1Time flight to Zanzibar. It’s for the Tropika Island of Treasure reality show that’s going to air on etv from Sunday the 18th of October. The plane is mostly full of those involved in the event, but there are quite a few couples too and some families. I didn’t realize how many people go on holiday during the week – and to a place like Zanzibar. Dont they work?? Haha!


So, who’ve we got?


Sizwe Dhlomo – MTV VJ, who’s just come back from the MTV Base Africa Music Awards in Kenya.


Trevor Noah – comedian extrodinaire. In a short space of time, this guy has fast become one of the country’s funniest men.


Lira – the songstress who can do no wrong. Such a lovely lady. She’s no stranger to islands, having just recently run off to get married in Mauritius. (Note to self: Must ask her for tips about attending a wedding in Mauritius so I can be prepared for my cousin’s one next month).


Loyiso – my main man. Have been overseas with him before – in London and New York so it’s become somewhat normal to see him outside of SA!


Kelly Khumalo – have not actually ever met this kwaito singer, Arthur Mafokate prodige. She’s looking somewhat “tame” from the pictures I usually see of her.


Bianca Le Grange – looking good with her new hair colour (well, it’s new for me to see). Gone from a blonde to a light red-head.


Sashi Naidoo – pretty lass who has been to Zanzibar 5 times, she tells me.


Speedy – no towel, hahah!No, wait, I spoke too soon. There’s definately a towel still draped on his shoulder!


Hendrik Cronje – stepped in at the last minute for Roland Schoeman. I don’t mind at all, he’s still quite cute and seems sweeter than the swimmer, who once asked me if I am really this short. (Um, no, it’s an optical illusion?!)

Tasha Baxter
– a honey pie with a honey voice. I can still remember when she started singing back in the day in Cape Town, catching a concert where she performed with Penelope Tree and also used to sing at the Homebrew events at the Jam.



Tasha’s been through a rough year – what with having her car stolen, along with all the laptop that housed all the new music she was working on. Perhaps she does need it more than the other celebs? Or maybe one of the competition winners needs it more?

  4. I think that what you wrote was very logical.
    However, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog,
    however what if you added a headline that makes people want more?
    I mean Jambo Zanzibar! is kinda plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s home
    page and watch how they create news headlines to get people
    interested. You might try adding a video or a
    related pic or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring
    your posts a little bit more interesting.
