The event, held at Beechwood Gardens in Sandton, had a slow start with celebs strolling in in dribs and drabs.
Because Bonang Matheba was the host, launching the Cîroc’s apple flavoured vodka, AKA was bound to be there.
But he wasn’t invited and apparently Queen B was notified of this. She was told she was allowed only two guests – her picture-taking handbag was one. But she used her royalty and went straight to the boss of the brand to allow her bae in.
But AKA didn’t come alone. His road manager, who received a hot chesa mpama from Black Coffee last week, was with him.
And about 10 other people.
They frightened the girls who were welcoming the guests by grabbing and tossing the complimentary tokens. They announced “this is how we roll”.
Farah Fortune, owner of African Star Communications, was more than peed off that her guest list was disrespected. She had to call security to restore order.
She then set them up in their own little corner so they wouldn’t disturb other guests.
Shwa was highly annoyed because she was busy checking out the gorgeous Sthembiso “SK” Khoza, whose fame has blown up since his role on The Queen.
He was sporting some cute shorts and looked like a naughty teen in a snap back cap. So eatable!
Before rudely embarrassing herself, Bonang did look absolutely flawless in her green frock made by Gert Johann Coetzee.
She matched the gorgeous gardens hiding seven golden apples for lucky winners.
So after all the drama Shwa needed a smoke, but was told it was a no-smoking garden – Bathong. I had to walk to the secret section to light up, almost breaking my precious ankles on ghastly paved rocks.
Lil Trix the rapper is just too cute for words, but he needs to lose that joke of a tail. What is it with you and Cassper and ridiculous hairstyes?
DJ Akio also showed up. Apparently, he’s a hot DJ, but makes … no never mind. If Shwa hasn’t heard of you, you ain’t that cool, boy.
Loot, looking phly, walked in with her Reason. Look, you two look phenomenal together, so stop the pretence now. All of Mzansi knows you’re together.
As for Thembisa Mdoda, she must have thought she was invited to the Arctic circle.
Blacks, neh… when there’s a little bit of cloud cover the fur comes out. Crazy!
Mariechan Luiters looked like a breath of fresh air donned in JKW. She tells us it’s three gay boys all the way from Eldorado Park who are responsible for making her look so scrumptious.
We can’t wait to hear the collaboration with Port Elizabeth rapper Early B.
Solo, why’re you solo? Rumour has it you’re dating the hot Dineo Moeketsi. If so, Damn Boy, you’ve hit the jackpot! Shwa salutes you.
Despite the rudeness of AKA, the Cîroc soirée was hip, happening and elegant.
Marketing manager Vongi Chinkanda says that more surprises are in store for five-times distilled vodka fans. She raved about the drink being made with real apples and French grapes – good news for us girls with hips.
