Tumi Morake To Make History With Netflix
Tumi Morake is set to be the first African female comedian to host her own Netflix special. The accomplished stand-up comic will form part of 47 comedians from around the world who will be recording their specials for the leading streaming service.
The streaming network announced yesterday that it will debut a “stand-up comedy event series” sometime next year. It will feature half-hour sets from 47 comedians from different parts of the world including the Middle East and Canada.
The specials will tape at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal later this month. Although the series has not been named yet, it has been confirmed that the specials will be released all at once sometime in 2019.

Morake, whose comedy tour, Married But Not To Each Other is on a winning streak isn’t the only African comedian on the list. Loyiso Gola, Loyiso Madinga and Riaad Moosa will join her in flying the SA flag high.
Morake has not shared the announcement on her Twitter account with the caption: “Mama I made it”. Seems like a casual response for someone who is about to make history isn’t it?
Tellaman Drops “No Sharing” Visuals & “God Decides” Cover Art
Ever since he came into the game, Tellaman has always been about experimenting with different sounds. So far it’s been working for him just because he is a versatile vocalist. After dropping two new joints earlier this year, the SAP hit maker has dropped the visuals for his latest single titled No Sharing. He has also shared the cover art for his upcoming offering, God Decides.
Slated to be a great piece of work, God Decides is Tellaman’s long awaited and much anticipated debut album. It comes after the vocalist has shared with us countless singles as well as his 2017 EP, Lucid Dream.
He has dropped two joints from the album so far namely Crew Lit and No Sharing when he signed to Universal Music Group earlier this year. Judging by these two songs, we can truly expect a lot more experimenting especially when it comes to the sound.
The visuals for No Sharing are what we have come to expect from the vocalist and that is pure quality. Shot primarily indoors we see Tellaman hanging out with beautiful women while he tries to convince one that he is all about her. Shot by Kyle White, the music is super ambient and intimately lit.
The afro-beats feel to the song gives a great introduction to the warmer weather. Can you imagine jamming to this joint at social gatherings while overlooking a stunning sunset?
Peep the video for No Sharing below.
