It was time to party as Nescafe RICOFFY celebrated turning 50 years old this week, at one of Joburg’s hidden gem venues, the Hallmark House, that overlooks the beautiful skyline this city has to offer.
The 50th birthday party was attended by the who’s who of Mzansi, and guests were serenaded with epic performances by legends, that one would otherwise have had to spend a fortune to see.
Imagine getting a front row seat to watch performances from global superstar Master KG, renowned duo Mafikizolo and even Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse, during a pandemic? A once in a lifetime experience.
Under the theme “Express your South Africanness”, guests put their best foot forward in varying interpretations of what African Heritage means to them, creating a myriad colours and creativity that Mzansi is best known for.
Before being admitted to the party, guests were tested for Covid-19, but the regulations continued inside the venue, which made guests like myself feel more relaxed.
The party was hosted by multi-talented Jason Goliath and a string of celebrities adorned the top floor with actress Thembi Seete, who never seems to age a day in her life, dazzling in a red and floral top, and designer Gert Johan Coetzee joined the flaming red squad (which seemed to be the dominating colour) in a beautiful red short suit, with a white T-shirt and sneakers.
The Princess of Africa Yvonne Chaka-Chaka calmed the fiery situation with her elegant blue dress, Hotstix keeping it simple in black, and Mafikizolo duo Theo Kgosinkwe and Nhlanhla Nciza never disappointing with style. Nhlanhla shone bright in a pink tutu dress, while Theo kept it smart yet elegant in black.
And you know you’ve made it when even celebrities want to take a picture with you, right? The humble, and seemingly shy, Master KG was the centre of attention, as stars lined up to grab him for a quick snap. All he could do was smile and nod. Shame man!
The rest of the day, right into the early night, as the sun descended and caressed Johannesburg’s buildings, giving off wonderful spring hues, performances continued and guests danced, all in celebration of a brand that has been a part of Mzanzi’s heritage for 50 years.
