White Star Super Maize Meal hosted another unforgettable event, in partnership with DRUM magazine

Joe Cool’s in Durban provided the perfect seaside venue for a Sunday chillout like no other that kickedoff the end of May.

Set against the backdrop of North Beach, hundreds of readers and White Star lovers showed up for an afternoon celebration that saw them mingle, chat and take pictures with Ukhozi FM DJ and White Star ambassador Dudu Khoza.

Those in attendance were treated to a wonderful late lunch, which included some pap delicacies, along with sizzling entertainment from local DJs.

Along with the residents of the area, those in attendance included the first lady of KwaZulu-Natal, Zodwa Mchunu, and Queen and Jabulani Dlamini – the parents of actress and presenter Minnie Dlamini.

For Thandeka Gasa, the afternoon was a chance for her to celebrate her success after being named one of the winners of the competition run in DRUM magazine.

She spoke about what she loves most about the magazine. “I love the editor’s news! I love reading about sports – especially soccer, because I’m a huge fan, and I also love the competitions and, of course, the celeb news. I love knowing what’s happening.”

The event also saw an eclectic mix of people and friends coming together – which was the case for Felix Masingani, who was reunited with childhood friends.

“This is such an amazing afternoon, I’m loving everything about this event!” he added, joined by his two long-lost friends.

As a long-time reader of DRUM, he admits the up-to-date current affairs stories keep him coming back for more. “I buy the magazine every week because it keeps me updated and gives me information about everything that is happening in the country and the world.”

Those in attendance were treated like VIPs throughout the afternoon, as servers ensured they had plenty to drink and eat while indulging in the festivities

One reader, Juan Baptiste, admits the afternoon relaxation session is appreciated ahead of a hectic work week.

“This is great because it’s always nice to have a Sunday chillout, to have an afternoon where you can just relax and enjoy good music. It helps you get inspired as you get ready to go to work on Monday.”

Brenda Twagira echoes his sentiments, stating an afternoon chillout session allows her “to let loose, have fun and just enjoy being with my friends”.
