They say money can’t buy happiness, But financial strain can certainly help undo a relationship.

This week on The Business Buzz, We take a look at the impact that money or finances have on relationships. We are joined in the conversation by Financial Wellness Consultant, Lesetja Madiba and Financial Advisor, Vernon Cloete. We later take a look at a growing trend in South Africa where women are actually demanding and receiving girlfriend allowances from their boyfriends or male counterparts in the form of a monthly income.

In our Business Wrap, Financial Advisor Ken Swettenham gives us a recap of this week’s business, finance and economic news.

We later unpack all the opportunities offered by Innova8ive KnowlAdgeWorx (IKW) in a discussion with the company’s Managing Director, Mr Mphela Raphesu.

Our “Rant’ n Rave” for the week is the founder of Fashion Church, Sanego Motsweni, who tells us what he hates and loves about running an online business.
