IdolsSA judge JR’s customs sparks controversy

The costume that Idols SA judge JR Bogopa wore while judging the competition has gotten people talking on social media. JR has recently been in the news for a variety of reasons, including his confession that Thembi Seete was the object of his high school musical crush and his appearance in public wearing a Blank Panther costume.

JR was attending a party to celebrate the birthday of his son, Siya Bogopa, and he wore a one-of-a-kind costume to go along with the theme of the party. Both Siya and his mother, Tshepi, were dressed as spiders; Siya was rocking a spiderman costume, and Tshepi was rocking a spider woman costume.

Because the family had such a distinctive appearance, pictures of them quickly rose to the top of the most popular posts on social media. The birthday of JR’s son was celebrated in grand fashion, and many people complimented him on being the kind of family that would go to any lengths to make sure that his loved ones were content.

The pictures that JR Bogopa posted of himself while wearing the black panther suit have caused a storm on social media, and the people of Mzansi have a variety of opinions about the suit.

The fact that JR is competing on Idols SA has thrust him into the public eye, despite the fact that he is an honorable man who avoids getting involved in scandals on social media. Fans criticized JR’s outfit because it exposed his manhood, which caused Mzansi to question whether he wore the outfit intentionally to showcase his assets.

We know JR to be an upstanding individual who steers clear of situations that would cause negative publicity. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this picture was altered using photo editing software. Hello there, this is not the JR that I am familiar with. What exactly is going on with this guy?

On the other hand, many of his supporters applauded him for paying tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman by donning the black panther costume that he had previously worn. Mzansi also brought up the fact that JR has a strong affection for his family, as evidenced by the fact that he is willing to make personal sacrifices, such as dressing provocatively in order to win over his son Siya.

Others noted that the custom shaped his private parts and they had the following to say:


One of the most prominent observations was that JR and his engaged girlfriend Tshepi are a happy couple who does not brag about their love life like other celebrities do. Tshepi was one of JR’s childhood friends. Tshepi and JR have been in a committed romantic relationship for over a dozen years, and just recently, the couple announced their engagement.

The engagement of JR and Tshepi has caused a stir on social media, with many members of the Mzansi community troll JR for giving his longtime girlfriend a cheap ring. Due to the fact that the couple has been together for 12 years, many people have expressed the opinion that they anticipated him to give her a ring that had a significant amount of bling and sparkles given the length of their relationship. Twitter quickly became a hotbed for jokes and mockery, which quickly spread across the platform. Someone on Twitter mentioned that the ring appears to have been made using beaded work.


The sudden passing of Hollywood superstar Chadwick Boseman in August 2020 came as a shock to the entire world, and his absence has been keenly felt by the cast and crew of “Black Panther 2,” which is scheduled to begin filming on November 11.

While filming the highly anticipated sequel, they have had to bring the sorrow of losing Boseman to the set every day. Boseman’s friend and “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler told Entertainment Weekly (EW) that the unexpected tragedy shook him to the very core of his being.

When first informed of Boseman’s passing, the Oscar-winning director, who is 36 years old, had already started working on what would become the upcoming sequel, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

He admitted to Entertainment Weekly that there was a point in his career when he thought, “I’m walking away from this business.” “I didn’t know if I could make another movie period, [let alone] another Black Panther movie, because it hurt a lot,” he said. “I didn’t know if I could make another movie period.” I thought to myself, “Man, how could I possibly expose myself to feeling like this once more?”

After Boseman’s passing, Coogler found himself going over memories of their time together over and over in his head. He would either watch old footage of himself with Boseman or listen to interviews in which his friend would speak about what the character of T’Challa and Wakanda meant to him. Both of these activities were very therapeutic for him.

As Coogler listened to Boseman’s comments, he found himself thinking about the future once more. The actor had always been a fervent supporter of the movie, and as he did so, he inspired Coogler. “I was pouring over a lot of our conversations that we had towards what I realized was the end of his life,” the director explains. “It became clear to me that he was in his final days.” “I reasoned that continuing on would be the best course of action.”

“The movie is very much about how you move forward while dealing with a tragic loss,” explains the producer Nate Moore. “The movie is very much about how you move forward.” All of the characters, both returning favorites and brand-new additions, are struggling with how the loss of a loved one can change a person in ways that are both emotional and unexpected.

The death of T’Challa brings with it the promise that the mantle of Black Panther will be taken up by another brave warrior in the future. A new trailer that was just released today offers a sneak peek at the new Panther suit, which gives the impression of being worn by a female character.

The kingdom of Wakanda will mourn the death of Chadwick Boseman’s character, King T’Challa, in the sequel “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” just as the cast and crew of the first film had to move on without their friend and leading man.

Both Ryan Coogler and Marvel have stated on multiple occasions that they have never given any other actor the opportunity to play the role of T’Challa. Instead, it is Coogler’s hope that Wakanda Forever will expand on Boseman’s legacy with an entirely new story, thereby continuing the legacy that Boseman started.
