A sweet affair
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.
