Sushi King Kenny Kunene has gone back to his old ways.

He has dumped pol­i­tics for ny­otaimori – the Ja­panese term for eat­ing sushi off a naked woman’s body.

“F*** pol­i­tics! This is what I do full time now,” Kunene shouted at the mi­cro­phone at his birth­day party on Fri­day night at the ex­clu­sive Taboo night­club in Sand­ton.

The for­mer ZAR night­club owner ar­rived at the party in his sil­ver Rolls-Royce with two mod­els on his arm.

At his 40th birth­day in 2010, Kunene caused an out­cry after eat­ing sushi off a model clad only in her un­der­wear.

At his 44th birth­day bash on Fri­day, he went one step fur­ther by eat­ing off two com­pletely naked mod­els.

Shocked guests filmed ev­ery mo­ment on their smart­phones, stand­ing on chairs and ta­bles to get the best view.

“Ev­ery sin­gle man in here wishes they could eat sushi off a naked woman,” Kunene told the crowd.

Dur­ing the party, he in­vited his guests to join him eat­ing sushi off the naked mod­els. They de­clined to re­veal their names to City Press. His birth­day cake was mod­elled on a naked woman’s be­hind.

Kunene’s daugh­ter Mpho helped or­gan­ise the high­pro­file bash, which fea­tured a per­for­mance by pop star Kelly Khu­malo.

The Moët flowed un­til the early hours of the morn­ing, but only in the club’s VIP sec­tion.

Among the guests were Eco­nomic Free­dom Fight­ers (EFF) chief whip Floyd Shivambu, and fel­low EFF mem­ber and ac­tor Fana Mokoena.

Min­ing ty­coon and mo­ti­va­tional speaker Gay­ton McKen­zie – Kunene’s close friend and for­mer leader of the de­funct Pa­tri­otic Al­liance, which failed mis­er­ably in May’s gen­eral elec­tions – was nowhere to be seen.

The mod­els lay on ta­bles for more than 30 min­utes, with only roses and sushi cov­er­ing their nip­ples and pri­vate parts. The pair ap­peared to be shiv­er­ing and wore masks through­out the night.

One of them spoke to City Press, iden­ti­fy­ing her­self only as Alice. She said she was from Bloem­fontein and had been “do­ing this” for the past three years.

The 22-year-old de­clined to re­veal how much she was be­ing paid.

“I’m a model. I love what I do,” she said. “We are get­ting paid enough.”

Ru­mours were rife that Kunene’s old friend, EFF leader Julius Malema, had been spot­ted at the party, but was try­ing to keep out of sight down­stairs.

Malema de­nied this yes­ter­day: “I wasn’t at Kenny Kunene’s party. I wasn’t in­vited. I’m in Polok­wane as we speak.

“I love par­ties but, at the mo­ment, I’m on study leave,” he said.

Kunene yes­ter­day de­clined to re­veal how much the party cost him or how much he paid the mod­els to serve as his plates.

“I eat sushi on women be­cause it makes me happy. I love it,” he said.

“Some peo­ple braai at their par­ties, but I en­joy do­ing this at mine.

“Peo­ple can say what­ever they want. I don’t care.”
