Mrs Right Guy
Thursday night’s premiere of Mrs Right Guy at The Zone @ Rosebank was a glamorous event indeed.
The venue was all dressed up and the celeb attendees didn’t disappoint either.
Guests were kept warm with glasses of Sauvignon Blanc or Merlot, accompanied by chicken or beef stew served with rice. Redd’s SA, one of the sponsors of the film, provided a crispaahhhh moment with a mobile bar.
The screening was scheduled for 8pm and guests were given the opportunity to freshen up their faces, courtesy of MUD make-up studio, which set up a mobile station, ensuring that the selfies – taken with the film’s cast and crew – looked really good.
The film was directed by Adze Ugah and produced by Dumi Gumbi, Kethiwe Ngcobo, Mokopi Shale and Cati Weinek. It stars Dineo Moeketsi as Gugu Hlatshwayo, a woman who is accustomed to being the It girl.
Spotted at the event were socialite and TV presenter Jen Su, 5FM DJ Fikile “Fix” Moeti, actor Sello Maake Ka-Ncube and comedian Celeste Ntuli.
Of course, the fabulous stars of the movie were there too – Thando Thabethe, Thapelo Mokoena and Lehasa Moloi.
Mrs Right Guy is scheduled to be begin showing at cinemas on Friday. Don’t miss it!

They took the boys and men from our homes, and lined them up outside and shot them. My mother’s father and uncle were taken like this and shot when she was only one month old. The last time my mother saw Jerusalem was when she was seven years old. We are not allowed back in Palestine, so I have never been there. But I like it in South Africa. I am free to say: I am Palestinian.
SHADI YOUNIS A Palestinian never has a home, even a Palestinian still living in Palestine, because your home has been forcefully taken away. Not necessarily your house, but your farms, your schools, your hospitals, your livelihood. The walls divide the villages purposefully to stop children from going to school, workers from going to their farm. A Palestinian will never feel at home until he has a state. Any Palestinian you talk to, no matter where he lives or how welcome he feels, as long as he knows somebody else is on his land by force, he feels that Palestine is home and he will never have another one. Home will always be Palestine. Even if you ask my son, who has never been there, he will say he is from Palestine.
