What promised to be one of the best and top class event in the Capital over the weekend, the V-Lifestyle Mansion Party, was not show.
South African actress and television personality, Boity Thulo, who was to headline the event did not show up. As a result some confrontations ensued with some party-goers demanding to see Boity or have their money back. Simon Markus, who was eager to see Boity says he was very disappointed having spent “a lot of money” on a ticket, just to be told Boity was no longer coming. “They are disorganised, tickets were very expensive, and drinks were even too expensive for us to be waiting for someone who was not coming,” says Markus, adding that they were supposed to be informed in advance that Boity was no longer coming.
“Owing to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, Boity will no longer be able to travel to Namibia as initially agreed,” read the email sent to Olive Entertainment, by Boity’s management trying to explain that they explored all options but it did not seem to come to pass.
“Please find another date for the appearance, as Boity is very excited about traveling to Namibia for the event, but unfortunately this date clashes with a personal commitments she cannot miss,” the email attempted an excuse.
Boity was believed to have another event in her country (South Africa), as she posted on her Instagram Page. Although her management informed the organisers to find another date, South African radio personality, actress and model, Minnie Dlamini, the second act, saved the night. Julia Kadhikwa from Olive Entertainment says Boity’s no-show had nothing to do with their company. “We did our part. She was paid in June in full and her flight was already booked,” says Kadhikwa.
The revelers were promised a mega-treat including brushing shoulders with the sassy actresses and television presenters topped by the radioactive presence of Minnie Dlamini and Boity Thulo. The V-Lifestyle Mansion Party has been billed an event to take people into their fancies and fantasies by meeting the favorite celebrities across Africa. But such still has to be realised perhaps with the next go..if the next is not a no-show. Let’s hope it shall not become a trend.
