MTV Base threw a celebration party at Hush in Rosebank on the 10th June and  let me just start off by saying “MTV Base knows how to throw a good party!”. Hush was so packed they couldn’t let anymore people inside the club. The party was in celebration of their successful year on DStv Compact and a milestone 3 million MTV Base subscribers on DStv Compact and DStv Premium, MTV Base (DStv channel 322). Guests were treated to the best in both House and Hiphop with a line-up that featured Zakes Bantwini, Tumi from the Volume, Lulo Cafe, DJ Kenzhero, DJ Switch, DJ Naves, DJ Spectecular and DJ Franky. Some lucky guests also went home with PVR decoders courtesy of DSTV.

I got there just after 11pm all “trenched” up,  (*gosh* it’s so hard partying in winter). Anyway, the first person I saw walking past was Claire Mawisa, this woman does not age! DJ Sbu and Tbo Touch also rolled up in style and so did Da Les.

Tumi and the Volume gave a great perfomance but everyone kept chanting “we want Zakes” (Zakes Bantwini). Well, rest assured Mr “Bum-Bum” took to the stage and set the dance floor on fire, even I couldn’t resist his talent. I must say, one can never go wrong with a live Zakes Bantwini, the man is just too damn hot on stage!!!

I think Tumi is such a great artist!

Also spotted at the party was Pabi Moloi who was there working…she looked lovely in this blue dress

The club was a bit crowded for my liking, I couldn’t dance without bumping into someone, so no that was not a good site. I chilled outside with some friends and fellow bloggers. We did a couple of interviews, took pictures and just as I was about to go back inside for Lulo Cafe’s set, he came out to leave…that for me was the end of my night at Hush.

A moment of silence for this man…Lulo Cafe

Thapelo Mokoena was also there…

so was YFM’s DJ Zama Dube

After 3 events in one night, I was beyond tired and all I wanted at that time of the morning was a junior cheese burger from McD’s and my pink slippers :-)

Thanks to MTV for presenting such a great party!
