IOL Entertainment Magazine – Issue 01


Welcome to the first issue of our quarterly IOL Entertainment magazine.

Given the recent industry losses, we decided to delve into the vicious cycle of fame and addiction.

Hip hop legend DMX, who has battled with addiction his entire career, is our cover story. We also look at the stars we lost as well as those who checked into rehab to avoid a similar fate.

Fame isn’t all it is cracked up to be and a local expert offers insight into the pressures of fame and the downward spiral of stars.

With the tragic passing of rapper AKA’s fiancée, Anele “Nellie” Tembe, many celebrities have been pushing the“mental wellness” narrative with more robustness.

DJ Sumbody unpacks the popularity of amapiano and confirms a new album in the pipeline.

There appears to be trouble in paradise for Somizi and Mohale but they keep skirting around the issue. What gives!

Also, find out where to get your reality fix now that ‘KUPWK’ is ending and which shows should be on your binge-watch list.

Happy reading!
