'I got the been there, done it t-shirt’: Kuli Roberts

By BONGIWE SITHOLE | 2013-08-01 15:08:40.0 | COMMENTS [ 32 ]

Radio and TV personality Kuli Roberts and partner Sylvester Sefotlhelo is the second couple to be eliminated on Wednesday's episode of Strictly Come Dancing on SABC3.

The axed dancers failed to impress the judges following the dreaded dance off against TV presenter Graeme Richards and Lindsey Muckle.

Last week we saw Kwaito star L’vovo and his partner get booted out on the show's 3rd dance session.

Speaking to Sowetan Live, Kuli Roberts says she wishes that she was the first to have been eliminated and for L’vovo to stay longer in the show.

“On the first night of elimination,  I cried when L’vovo left. He had more potential than me.

“I was upset at L’vovo’s partner, Mary, because she kept belittling him and even had the guts to speak badly about him on Selimathunzi. Who does that?

“L’vovo is a nice guy and he gave his best. People must understand my reason for crying last week,” she says.

Roberts praises her fellow celeb contestants and says she feels the judgement leading to her removal from the competition was fair.

She tweets a follower saying: “The rest of them are very good and I think it was fair! I loved doing it and am grateful.

“It’s been amazing to bond with the other celebs on a different level.

“They are nice people and have a chance to go far when it comes to dancing.”

Bubbly Roberts says she loved dressing up and putting on make up more than the dancing.

“I am going to miss being dolled up and dressing up for the show but I will not miss the grueling rehearsals of 5 hours a day.

“My body clock was damaged so I am glad to have my normal life back.

She says dancing was just a once off for her now that she got the 't-shirt'.

“This was a once off. I got the ‘been there, done it t-shirt’ so I am good. I am grateful for the experience."

Celebrities remaining in the dance show are:

  •  Lala Hirayama and Grant Esterhuizen
  • Jay Antsey and Tsholo Moholwane
  • Connie Ferguson and Brandon Eilers
  • Graeme Richards and Lindsey Muckle
  • Thapelo Mokoena and Hayley Bennet
  • Damon Kalvari and Hayley Hammond
  • Zakeeya Patel and Ryan Hammond
  • Mpho Popps and Nombulelo Hlathi

@Mellow howzit gal:-) anyway I am glad Lvovo is out that guy came in exhuding arrogance, he was disrespecting other contenstants in his comments when he said it was him and the other female contestant in hte competition as the other ones were not dancers, its not about dancing just any dance its about composure and controlled beautiful movements, on the ballroom stakes Lvovo is a duck he needs to develop into a swan then we can talk ballroom.

@oldllady when overseas they use celebrities they use super talented to make the show interesting, cause here viewers take not hostages, you should see UK and USA stictly come dancing and the critic contestants get from Judges and the public alike, I will send you some of the clips I still enjoy long after the show of the winners, and you will agree with me that talents must triumph in the talent competition not just status about she is the newsreader this or that, so what Nkephile is a newsreader she is good at it but she is not imposed on us as a dancer, I do hope these so called celebrities can stick with what they are good at and not be all over the place, speakign of talent, I had priviledge watching clips of that SAn comedian Noah, what a delight? I wish he can write more international material for his international gigs cause then he will be comedy God.

Hot sun beating down
burning my feet just walking around.
Hot sun making me sweat
'Gators getting close, hasn't got me yet
I can't dance, I can't talk.
Only thing about me is the way I walk.
I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling everything.
Blue jeans sitting on the beach,
her dog's talking to me, but she's out of reach.
She's got a body under that shirt,
but all she wants to do is rub my face in the dirt.
Cos, I can't dance, I can't talk.
Only thing about me is the way I walk.
I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling.
Oh and checking everything is in place,
you never know who's looking on.
Young punk spilling beer on my shoes,
fat guy's talking to me trying to steal my blues.
Thick smoke, see her smiling through.
I never thought so much could happen just shooting pool.
But I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way that I walk.
I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling
Oh and checking everything is in place
You never know who's looking on
A perfect body with a perfect face - uh-huh.
No, I can't dance, I can't talk.
The only thing about me is the way I walk.
No, I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm just standing here selling everything.
But I can walk.
No I can't dance.
No no no I can't dance
No I said I can't sing.
But I can walk.

@MsKink to be fair she at least put herself there, and gave it a try, hope she had fun, maybe the boring part was bad choreography, cause she did what she was taught.

@Mellow uLvovo was not very gentlemanly against other contestants for undermining them even before competetion started, personally I think he deserved to live early to prevent head from swelling out of control.
