South African Hip Hop star, Da L.E.S will embark on a nationwide tour from January to February 2015, bringing his hit album, Mandela Money, to fans this Friday in Cape Town at COCO, 30 January. The album, which features such smash hits as Fire, Heaven feat. AKA and Magz, and the chart-topping Dice, has dominated airwaves since its release, and has re-defined the standard of local Hip Hop, being lauded as one of the finest African Hip Hop albums of the decade. Also on the bill with Da L.E.S. will be a rotation of friends, including top DJ talents Dimplez, Zee and Milksake.

“Mandela Money is an album like no other – I’ve taken my sound to a whole new level and, performance-wise, I can’t wait to bring my energy to my fans around S.A.,” says Da L.E.S.

CÎROC is proud to present the Mandela Money Music Tour, which will see this talented member of the CÎROC Circle bringing his dynamic performance style to his masses of fans around SA,” says Avukile Mabombo, brandhouse Reserve Marketing Manager.

The annual All White Pool Party, hosted by one of South Africa’s foremost Hip Hop star, Da L.E.S, has become a coveted fixture on every Johannesburg A-Lister’s social calendar, and this year was no different. This ultra-exclusive, invitation-only celebration – now in its 6th consecutive year – took place on the weekend and featured electrifying performances by several of SA’s most magnetic talents. The day’s incredible entertainment performances by Da L.E.S himself, Nigerian Reggae-Dancehall sensation Burna Boy, AKA and Anatii as well as DJs Milkshake, Speedsta and fellow CÎROC Circle member, DJ Dimplez. Also spotted at the All White Pool Party were singer Tamara Dey, 5FM’s Poppy Ntshongwana, Shashi Naidoo, Bonang Matheba and David Tlale (both of whom are also part of the CÎROC Circle), amongst others.

“My annual All White Pool Party is about celebrating success and living the dream. This year my guests enjoyed a glamorous and high-energy CÎROC style experience to kick off 2015, a year in which I believe my career is set to rise to even greater heights – with the release of my new video for Dice and my upcoming nation-wide album tour for Mandela Money,” says Da L.E.S.

Along with performances of the song “Fire” and “All Eyes On Me” feat. Burna Boy, the event also saw the release of Da L.E.S’s new video for the song “Dice”, shot late last year in Los Angeles, California.

With the theme Made to Conquer, the J&B Met 2014 held at the Kenilworth race-course in Cape Town drew record crowds all dressed to the nines! Celebrities including Lalla Hirayama, Bonang Matheba, Maps Maponyane, Jennifer Su, Minnie Dlamini and Poppy Ntshongwana to name a few flew down to Cape Town from all over the country to indulge in the festivities. So many interpretations of the theme this year, it as all about fashion, design, style and most of all celebration as J&B pulled out all the stops to create a VVIP experience. The Sunglass Hut Inner Circle Marquee once again claimed the top spot for some of South Africa’s biggest personalities, with a VIP experience that included good music, courtesy of DJ Sox, good food, drinks and each guest received a R2000 Sunglass Hut gift voucher to purchase sunglasses on the day. I stopped by the Sunglass Hut marquee to catch up and have a few laughs with Janez Vermeiren, Wedaad Adams, Bailey Schneider, Cindy Nell, Gina Myers, Graeme RichardsBoity Thulo and Sue Duminy to name a few. Thank you Sunglass Hut for a fantastic Inner Circle Met experience!
