Dig­ging it!

E.tv’s most fa­mous faces gath­ered at the ex­clu­sive rooftop venue Bul­lion in Braam­fontein on Thurs­day night for the launch of the much-an­tic­i­pated te­len­ov­ela Gold Dig­gers, which will be tak­ing over the 8pm slot from Au­gust 10.

Guests were wel­comed and asked to wear ei­ther a min­ing over­all or a min­ing hel­met. Oth­ers were brave enough to rock the full at­tire.

A va­ri­ety of puff pas­tries was ush­ered around the room while the fa­mous min­gled.

An open bar kept spir­its high through­out the night. The rooftop had a black-and-gold theme, and the dimmed lights gave the feel of an un­der­ground mine – per­haps a glimpse of what to ex­pect from this te­len­ov­ela, which tells the story of a mine worker, and his strug­gles with life’s chal­lenges and temp­ta­tions.

The se­ries will star Tina Jaxa, Mbon­geni Ngema, rap­per Zulu Boy, Cle­men­tine Mosi­mane and David John­son.

Em­cee for the night was poet and play­wright Napo Masheane.

The event was sched­uled to start at 6pm, but was de­layed un­til 8pm. Fash­ion­ably late? I think not.

The per­form­ers for the night were pole dancers, who en­ter­tained guests by show­ing off their flex­i­bil­ity.

Zulu Boy, who rapped along­side a band, was elec­tri­fy­ing – the high­light of the night was his per­for­mance with fel­low cast mem­ber Mbon­geni Ngema.

Some of the more fa­mous faces spot­ted at the event were ac­tors from other pop­u­lar e.tv se­ries.

They in­cluded Scan­dal cast mem­bers Ma­paseka Koe­tle and Fulu Mu­gov­hani, and Rhythm City ac­tors Jamie Bar­lett and Dumisani Masilela.

Also in at­ten­dance were Umlilo cast mem­ber Hamil­ton Dlamini, and Ashes to Ashes ac­tors Nambitha Mpumlwana and Chumani Pan.
