DJ Zakes Bantwini and actress Claire Mawisa are the latest celebs to grace Nicky Greenwall's 'hot seat.'

They both will appear on this week's episode of ScreenTime.

Zakes will be opening up about that 'embarrassing bum bum video' that killed the success of his hit track 'Bum Bum'. The video, which was released in 2010, features the former male ballerina dressed in drag and teaching a class of women aerobics.

The muso has admitted that he has made some bad career choices over the years, especially with the release of that video.

"Oh! Please I can't even watch!" Zakes said, when the video was played for him.

"I hate this video! I think it killed my song. I think when this video aired the song just died. Before that people were loving the song. Moral of the story - artists who are watching this interview - pay attention to you music videos. If you don't have an idea or you don't have budget - just don't," he added.

Catch the full interview on Wednesday, 26 November at 9:35pm on with repeats on eNCA.
