SA so­cialites for Ge­nius’ All White party

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Melissa Mpofu Show­biz Ed­i­tor

TOP South African so­cialites and artistes are ex­pected to grace SA-based Zim­bab­wean busi­ness­man and so­cialite — Ge­nius Kadun­gure’s birth­day bash to­mor­row.

The birth­day party, tak­ing place in South Africa’s af­flu­ent Sand­ton area, is ex­pected to fea­ture Boity, Na­dia Nakai, AKA, No­muzi Mab­hena, DJ Clive, Blue Mbombo,Maps Maponyane and David Tlale among many other renowned names.

Speak­ing from his SA base, Kadun­gure, pop­u­larly known as Gin­imbi, said his 32nd birth­day party was meant to unite peo­ple.

Like his pre­vi­ous par­ties, the cel­e­bra­tions — co-spon­sored by Moet & Chan­don, Veuve Cliquot and Hen­nessy — will be an All-White af­fair.

“All is set for the party and I’m now look­ing for­ward to host­ing friends, fam­ily and busi­ness as­so­ciates.

“For me, this event is not just about par­ty­ing, but it’s more about unit­ing peo­ple as it will see peo­ple from dif­fer­ent coun­tries com­ing to­gether un­der one roof, just to cel­e­brate life and be merry,” said Gin­imbi.

Tak­ing things to an­other level, the party, which was fea­tured on DStv plat­forms last year, will once again be cov­ered by in­ter­na­tional en­ter­tain­ment chan­nels — Vuzu and BET among oth­ers.

An af­ter-party will be held to­mor­row evening at Harem night club where more celebri­ties are ex­pected to con­verge.

The busi­ness­man and party freak, who is the founder and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Pi­o­neer Gases which is un­der Piko Trad­ing, said he was in the process of men­tor­ing youths who as­pire to be suc­cess­ful.

“Though I can’t reveal their names yet, I’m work­ing with a num­ber of peo­ple who I’m men­tor­ing to re­alise their goals.

“I’ve in­vested in th­ese peo­ple so they move to the next step.

“As I re­flect on my 32 years on earth, I can’t quite say I’ve reached my goals as I’m al­ways chal­leng­ing my­self to achieve big­ger things.”

To give back to the com­mu­nity, Ge­nius, who has a fleet of top-of-the-range ve­hi­cles and a plush man­sion in Dom­boshava, said he was plan­ning to build schools.

For the past five years, Gin­imbi has been throw­ing lav­ish birth­day par­ties in Harare, Botswana and South Africa, often hir­ing pri­vate jets for his friends to travel in style — @maf­farro.
