“BLAME IT ON THE AAAHH”: Grey Goose Fab Launch In South Africa!!!

Filed under : Africa, Entertainment, Lifestyle

From our Guest Blogger: Duduzile Chiloane

*Cue Jamie Foxx’s “Blame it on the aaaahhhh, aaaaaahhhh aaaaahhhh alcohol…..”*

Friday night, I headed down to the “Grey Goose Launch” with my girl, Zukiswa. The uber fab event was held at the trendy night-spot Taboo, in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa. Greeted by the lovely staff, great vibe, beautiful people, lovely atmosphere and exquisite interior decor *the venue was poppin’*,  it looked like it was going to be one of those fab *Woza Friday, Woza Weekend* kinda-nights!

Drinks were flowing from the bar, all in the name of Grey Goose! *Yes, blame it on the alcohol!!* Grey Goose is part of the Bacardi family and is a premium priced vodka produced in France. The distinctive feature of Grey Goose is that it’s bottled with a replaceable cork rather than a screw-top cap. Ok.  *Kanye shrug*. All I know it that I got my drink on! Grey Goose was designed for the American market in 1997 by Sidney Frank, a self-made billionaire. And this November, it debuted in South Africa….

With Chris Browns‘ DJ,  DJ Babey Drew on the one’s & two’s, it definitely was going to be a night to remember. Even though it was not a star studded event, the Grey Goose launch was poppin’.

Here are some of the familiar faces spotted.

Trevor Gumbi was there shooting for Headlines. He even went as far as dancing on the stripper pole.

Gabisile from City Press who is glowing from her pregnancy & not fazed by Nonhle Thema‘s tweets/threats!

Tumi Voster (middle) was there with Fundi Khumalo (right) and friend. The ladies danced the night way and looked good while doing it.

Mika Stefano

Mika Stefano, along with his “colorful” friends, could not say way from dance floor. Lovely nails by the way Mika, and that famous pout….*You betta werk it girl boy!* Lol, dude kept on posing where ever he spotted a camera.

David Kau the comedian arrive quite late and made sure he didn’t leave the dance floor. Must say he has some moves. So many questions though for David, regarding his man bag & that hands-on-hips pose.

Upcoming comedian Chris Mapane (middle) arrived with David Kau. Photographed here with me and Zukiswa

DJ Babey Drew, the official YUMMY DJ for Chris Brown ensured that all the ladies were dancing all night long with a great set.

DJ Babey Drew was so kind to take a picture with me. And said he loves South Africa. Let’s hope he will bring Chris Brown with him next time he comes.

Farah Fortune of African Star Communications and Event Management

The ever so lovely Farah Fortune, was such a great host. Thank you Farah, once again for the hospitality and to Taboo for hosting us.

Grey Goose ensured that everyone was on the dance floor, shaking what their mama gave them *smile*. DJ’s pumped up the volume and kept the hits coming, so much, I did not want to go home. All in all, it was a great night.

As a reminder always, from all of us here at FaraiToday, DRINK RESPONSIBLY (especially NO drinking & driving!)
