Hello darlings, it’s your favourite gossip girl who is hoping to have some proper meat again this weekend. This Easter business saw me stuffing my face with pickled fish, fried fish and even grilled fish, and I am by now well and truly over all things fishy.
But enough about my carnivorous cravings. Last Thursday night I attended photographer and businessman Mthunzi Mali’s birthday celebrations which coincided with the launch of a gentlemen’s club at BMan’s Lounge in KwaNobuhle.
If you can recall it was freezing on Thursday night, but we were all out in force. The place attracted a solid crowd and all the girls were there in their winter coats and hooker heels.
One of your Skinnerbek’s favourite socialites to watch is Theo Klaas. As usual he was the life of the party, showing off his slick dance moves and making sure his glass was never empty.
I don’t know why I haven’t mentioned him before, but DJ Cute is also worth watching. And yes, ladies, he certainly lives up to his name.
He is Uitenhage’s regular yellow-bone and DJ Lulo Café has nothing on him… But sshh, don’t tell him I said so – we wouldn’t want all the attention going to his head.
Skinner’s sources at the annual Splash festival agree the only good thing about this evergreen Easter event was seeing hip-hop artist Kwesta up on stage performing Ngud’.
Truth be told, over the years excitement over the festival has waned and I hope the organisers are not oblivious to this and will do something to freshen it up in future.
Another highlight was Uitenhage singer Courtney Courus, who looked edgy in a gold-inspired look supported by an asymmetrical hairstyle.
There were definitely fewer crowds than in previous years and it did not help that some of the activities had to be cancelled due to the bad weather.
Until next time, my darlings, ciao for now!
