Scene City: Showy Zizi shows up once again

Gauteng Film Commission party hots up

Knock me down with a purple feather – Ncediso Goodenough Kodwa is back!

The man otherwise known as Zizi Kodwa resurfaced this week when he hosted a cocktail party at the Melrose Arch Fire & Ice on Monday on behalf of the Gauteng Film Commission (GFC).

It turns out that after vacating his lofty position as presidential spokesperson, this dashing dandy is now the commission’s marketing man.

The party was to bid farewell to filmmakers funded by the commission, who were off to the Durban International Film Festival.

The films they will be showing include Elelwani, Ugog’ Helen, One Last Look and Man on Ground.

Kodwa’s gift of the gab could’ve messed everything up if he didn’t know what he was talking about, but he was good.

Clad in a stylish suit with suede inlets on the arms, Kodwa, who has been in the position for two months, introduced the GFC’s new chief executive, Mzwandile Masina.

Masina revealed the commission’s plans to introduce a Johannesburg International Film Festival, and that they’ve approached the public and private sectors to help organise the festival. If you didn’t know it before, now you know: the war between Jozi and Durban for the “it city” crown is on!

Among the guests were Gugu Zuma, who looked glamorous but safe in a short, grey skirt; black polo-neck and stockings under a grey-black coat.

Man on Ground co-producer Rosie Motene looked a hot mess in her shapeless brown coat and purple hat. Someone who could’ve put that hat to good use was Generations actress Kagiso Rakosa.

While her outfit was stylishly grunge, it was her shambolic faux ’fro that was atrocious.

Also spotted was veteran actor Jet Novuka, Zone 14’s hunky Andile Mxakhaza and the new kids on the block Jafta
Mamabolo hanging out with The Wilds’ Keenan Arrison.

Comedians Kagiso Lediga, David Kau and radio personality Azania Mosaka were also there.

With all the GFC’s grand plans, it’s safe to say that Kodwa and company will have their hands full enough to make him forget about the dreaded “road to Mangaung”.
