KABELO TIRO COOKING UP A STORM
He rose to fame as a dance choreographer in the mid-2000s and was almost part of every music video. Amongst his biggest highlights was when he choreographed Vee’s celebrity and star-studded wedding in 2014. Popularly known as Skavanger in the music scenes; the young man has now metamorphosed to his birth name Kabelo Tiro, thus dumping the blithe moniker, Skavenger.
Kabelo Tiro is currently working on his new Jazzy and mature album to be released sometime this year. Yesterday at the Hamptons Jazz Festival press conference, Tiro sampled two songs from the upcoming album.
From what we heard, the new album promises to be a banger and Tiro noted that he will use the Hamptons Jazz Festival platform to sample his album to his fans.
He has been hired as an MC by the upcoming music festival alongside Juju Vine and Goitse Kgaswane of Big Brother Africa (BBA) fame.

CAITLYN JENNER – I’M GETTING INTO THE COSMETICS BIZ!
Caitlyn Jenner seems to be taking a page out of daughter Kylie’s playbook by getting into the cosmetics biz. We’ve learned Caitlyn recently filed a trademark for exclusive rights to hawk makeup under her name. It’s not just cosmetics … Jenner’s application covers fragrances, makeup remover, nail polish, and skin care. Cait doesn’t have a clear plan on how or when she will break into the beauty business.
She wanted to secure the trademark before anyone else got the idea. It’s a smart move considering Kylie’s insanely popular lip kit line sold out in seconds.
RIHANNA’S MELTDOWN AT THE GRAMMYS
Rihanna was screaming and hysterical before she bailed on the Grammys, but there are conflicting stories about what triggered her outburst. Sources connected with the show and several sources who were not connected but present at the show tell TMZ … the singer was loudly expressing displeasure over her rehearsal. They say she was loud and upset and, as we first reported, bailed on the event.
Rihanna’s people say she had a medical issue … bronchitis that was so bad she could not perform and that’s why she left. Sources close to RiRi tell us she was too upset to stay and watch the show.
It’s interesting … Rihanna sang flawlessly two nights before the Grammys at a Lionel Richie charity event. Several sources say her voice was also great at the Grammys rehearsal.
