Have A Perfectly Pink Sun Met At Home

It's Gin-uary season

By  | Jun 22, 2020, 01:48 PM 

As most of you know, we are giving away two tickets to a lucky reader - and an even luckier friend - to join us at the Sun Met this Saturday and thanks to our friends at BLOOM Gin & Greenall's Gin we are going to be out there all day with a huge social media swarm.

If you don't win those tickets then have no fear because ZAlebs will be bringing you right along with us through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. With literally every major ZAleb in Mzansi showing up, there are some things we will want to watch out for and that you definitely won't want to miss out on.

The Queen of everything media, Bonang Matheba, will be attending the Sun Met, and she's just as excited as we are but who else will be there in their full African luxury attire?

We noticed that AKA was double tapping some of Bonang's Instagram stories - do you think he'll make an appearance to see her or will he be too preoccupied with that mystery woman he was spotted kissing after he announced his break up from DJ Zinhle?

Miss Universe, Zozibini Tunzi, recently announced that she's coming home soon but will she make it in time to grace us with her presence for the Sun Met?

And we know Black Coffee will be spinning the decks at the Africa is Not A Jungle after party but who will his plus one be following his divorce from Enhle Mbali who seems to be in the after glow of her divorce with success from her fashion line featured in Vogue Italia.

Speaking of high fashion, who do you think is going to have the craziest outfit this year?

Just a note about summer, gin, gin and tonics and what we learned from our friends at BLOOM GIN and Greenall's - do you know that some gins have up to 90 grams of sugar per liter while Greenall's Wild Berry and BLOOM Jasmine and Rose Gins are deliciously sugar free? We didn't know either but now we do - and you do too.
