Spotted at Taboo’s 9th Birthday Party
I am not into clubbing and my reasons are far too many to mention but when I got an invite to the 9th Birthday of Taboo nightclub in Sandton, I accepted and it was perfect considering it was on a Saturday.
I had told myself that I was gonna be there for an hour max, then head home but you know what? me and my ‘bodyguards’ or should I say Entourage were there till 5am. (Don’t judge). I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun at a nightclub. We were in the VVIP area and we were treated like those rich people from that other club that I will not mention. Lol.
It was the first time for me going to a nightclub and really feeling the VIP that is always stated on our invites. Usually with nightclubs events/parties, the invite will say VIP, but when you get there you are told you are not allowed to sit on the couches unless you buy some expensive bottle of something and that is if all the tables don’t have the reserved sign on them. So for some of us non drinkers we stay losing as we will be treated like trash and forced to stand by the crowded dance floors where you can’t even breathe let alone take pics. Well this time we were the ones on a reserved table all thanks to publicist Farah Fortune of African Star for hooking us up.
There were a few celebs that I spotted but it was mostly Soccer Players that were in our area. I asked Benni McCarthy for a picture and he refused shem. He said he will only agree to a picture if I take it with him and also use my phone and not the JC camera. He said he was not posing for any publications. I then asked Blayze to take a picture of us using his phone, till now I’m asking myself what the difference was really and I don’t have an answer. Who told Benni that if you use a mobile to take a picture one won’t publish it? I was so tempted to put it up but because I like him and the fact that he wasn’t rude, I will respect his wishes. Lol
Anyway, a lot of the soccer players refused to pose for pictures except for Sibusiso Zuma. I had to pass an interview with this lady he was with for me to get this one though. She grilled me with questions and even googled Just Curious. Ja neh! Ku tough for us sometimes.
Spotted Babalwa Mneno having a ball as usual.
Brand Ambassador and Artist Dylan ‘Blayze’ King was there too. (Thank you for the Benni pic)
Some of my bodyguards, Model Sifiso Ndlovu with Matt Khatso.
Musician Tamara Dey was there too.
I saw the DJ dude from Generations chilling by the corner and I asked for a pic for JC, he agreed. Pity I couldn’t ask for his name because he had company. So I went on Google and the only ‘Generations DJ’ that came up was DJ Lulu. Sigh!
Still on DJs, this dude called GrandMaster Flash deserves an award for his mix on that night. This American brother kept us on the dance floor and he was playing our own music. African music and he nailed it! Big up to him. I hear he is the Hip-Hop DJ who invented the Crossfader, which allows DJ’s to switch from one song to the next effortlessly. He is also in the B.E.T hall of fame. Talk about a LEGEND!
Abom’rapper were there in full force. L-tido with the lady he arrived with.
SAMA winner Amu was there to have a good time and he sure did. Deathby the pose.
I asked hip hop artist Tumi for a picture and told him I work for JC, he didn’t want to pose. I begged him and he gave in. He said ‘Your bloggers better not come up with some, ‘Tumi needs to hlasela mafutha’. So looking at his middle finger on this picture I don’t know if that was directed to ME or to you guys. Either way I died when he spoke about Hlasela Mafutha. Kwaaaaaaaa
Thank you so much for a job well done African Star. We really had fun, you took care of us. Happy 9th Birthday Taboo. Very soon we celebrate a decade.
