A sweet af­fair

CityPress - - News - BOI­TUMELO MVIMBI news@city­press.co.za

The pre­miere of the much-an­tic­i­pated lo­cal film Tell Me Sweet Some­thing was a laid-back, trendy and in­ti­mate af­fair at The Zone @ Rose­bank on Wed­nes­day night. Guests were asked to ar­rive at 6pm and the punc­tual ones were wel­comed with a glass of bub­bly by well-dressed men in berets.

While the venue was at­trac­tively dec­o­rated, there sadly wasn’t enough bub­bly on the ta­bles. How­ever, the en­ter­tain­ment by the YFM DJs made up for this.

With the screen­ing sched­uled to start at 8pm, guests were given the op­por­tu­nity to take self­ies, share them on so­cial-net­work sites and even have their pic­tures printed out. If tak­ing pic­tures was not their thing, Revlon SA kept them look­ing glam­orous at its make-up sta­tion.

A com­pli­men­tary box of pop­corn and a cool drink were of­fered to each guest for the screen­ing. Two worlds col­lide in this charm­ing, funny, ro­man­tic and sweet film set on the bustling streets of Jozi. The movie shows a side of Joburg that is rarely seen, the City of Gold as the City of Love.

It’s an ur­ban love story inspired by di­rec­tor Akin Omo­toso’s love of ro­mance flicks, es­pe­cially the ro­man­tic clas­sic Love Jones, and his de­sire to tell a story that cel­e­brates love in the City of Gold.

The venue over­flowed with celebs and twelebs. Among them were cast mem­bers Nomzamo Mbatha, Maps Maponyane, Thembi Seete, Thomas Gumede, Terry Pheto and Mam­pho Bres­cia. Busi­ness­woman Gerry Rantseli-Els­don, co­me­dian David Kau and TV pre­sen­ter Lungile Radu com­pleted the all-star guest list at the pre­miere.
