It was a night of glamour and style as Taboo nightclub in Sandton relaunched its upper deck on Thursday night.

The grand affair, which was supposed to be hosted by golden couple Bonang Matheba and AKA, attracted a host of celebrities, business personalities and many others who enjoy the finer things in life.

Queen B could not make it as she was travelling at the time, but her boyfriend, hip-hop artist AKA, kept guests entertained.

Taboo has been around for 13 years now.

It remains a popular chill-out spot for ordinary people and well-known personalities – including politicians.

So it was no surprise when we saw actresses Nomzamo Mbatha and Dineo Moeketsi, model Babalwa Mneno, singer Tamara Dey and TV personality Keitumetse “K Naomi” Noinyane make their respective appearances.

Noinyane and Moekesti looked sexy in slip dresses that showcased their slim, toned bodies. Mbatha also looked stunning in a plunging neckline vinyl dress that left little to the imagination.

The night kicked off with guests being welcomed by a violinist in a red ballgown, playing as she sashayed down the red carpet leading to the revamped club.

AKA took to the stage to welcome guests, marvelling at the 13 years of Taboo’s existence – no small feat, given Johannesburg’s fickle crowd.

“What an amazing legacy,” he gushed.

Chris Coutroulis, owner of Taboo and the husband of former Miss SA Vanessa Carreira, also gave a brief speech about his club.

What is a party without entertainment? In line with the glamour theme, guests were entertained by Moulin Rouge-style dancers, as they sipped on GH Mumm French champagne and nibbled on canapés such as Moroccan beef, chicken kebabs, mini gourmet beef burgers and chocolate ganache topped with strawberries
