"No topic is off-limits, from the deeply personal (battling illness, life in prison, childhood traumas), to fame, politics and navigating media scandals.

Some of the celebrities who have sat down with the team and enjoyed their Grandeur Gin include Sonia Mbele, Vuyo Dabula, Pearl Thusi, Kwesta, Simphiwe Ngema, Zakes Bantwini and his wife Nandi Madida, including many others.
