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.
