‘Second Chance’ soap opera actress Lorena Rojas dead after a long battle with cancer.




Mexican telenovela actress Lorena Rojas died Monday after a battle with cancer.

Rojas, 44, died at her home in Miami, surrounded by her boyfriend, family and friends, her talent management agency Latin WE said.

She had been fighting cancer since 2008. That year, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2013, after the tumor metastasized to others parts of her body, she told Mexican state news Agency Notimex that “[she] was very aware that this disease… is a chronic disease.”
Last year, she was told the tumor had spread to her liver.

Her last tweet was less than a week ago, on the day of her 44th birthday. “Thank you all for celebrating my birthday with me. Beautiful day,” she wrote.

Rojas starred in more than a dozen soap operas, including “El Cuerpo del Deseo,” “Alcanzar una estrella” and, most recently, “Rosario.”

Last year, inspired by her adopted daughter Luciana, she worked as a singer-songwriter for a children’s album, “Hijos del Sol.”

Throughout the day Tuesday, Latin stars and fans took to Twitter to remember Rojas.

“As the first time I met you, full of light, that is how I’ll remember you Lorena Rojas,” tweeted Grammy Award-winning singer Ricardo Arjona.

Photos: What you missed at the Nkozi Hill party



By Our Reporter

Party animals who turned up for the Nkozi Hill party on Saturday must have exited the hilly venue with aching muscles from all the nonstop dancing and all-night partying in what was indeed a lit party.

Revelers lost themselves in the music while excitedly dancing to the myriad of DJ mixes that kept on playing, a perfect cocktail of fun and good times.

Despite being dubbed the camping edition, party animals ended up trading the camping experience for the party vibes as many preferred to blast the night away.

The event was crowned with Voltage Music duo, Kent and Flosso delivering a showstopping performance of their hit songs like ‘Byaafayo’ ‘Pull up’ and the crowd’s favourite, ‘Squeeze’ that left the crowd feeling completely alive for the most part of the night.

Revellers were also treated to an outdoor 3D Cinema experience as well as a gaming station that had the much more reserved crew catered for with many getting so involved on their own island of fun.

Sponsored by Tusker Lite, the ‘go out of town’ party lived up to its billing as many students and party lovers turned up for the massive Nkozi Hill party experience.

Here are some photos from the event.
