CASTLE MILK STOUT PRESENTS GEMELLI RESTAURANT AND CAFÉ TIBZ

Castle Milk Stout presents two chefs with very different backgrounds to create magic in their VIP marquee at the DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival.


Alessandro Khojane, owner of Gemelli Restaurant in Bryanston, has an equally interesting story, having been born in Bloemfontein but brought up in Italy as the son of a diplomat, where his love for Italian cuisine blossomed.

“My partner, Chef Paulo believes food is more than just art on plate, one has to often consider taste and texture, hence he introduced the Castle Milk Stout basting to our famous Lamb Rib Loin cutlets. We literally took an old family favourite and switched it up tenfold, and that is what we love about cooking with Castle Milk Stout – the opportunity to reimagine our dishes,” Alessandro said.

Gemelli will present an Exclusive Chefs Table experience for 100 guests in the Castle Milk Stout marquee on Saturday, 07 October 2017.

Popularly known in the industry as “Tibz”, Tebello Motsoane is the founder of Showlove Events and director of Showlove Music. Tibz has been behind some of hip-hop’s biggest events and artists in the entertainment industry. With a history of some of the greatest urban events in South Africa, Tibz has successfully managed to cement himself as a reputable brand strategist.

Through his Showlove platforms, Tibz has been able to streamline multiple interests.


Today, you will find him in the kitchen as his latest venture “Café Tibz” delivers bespoke dining experiences for those looking for intimate culinary experiences. A true entrepreneur in the entertainment space, and a connoisseur of fine things, his expertise has seen him work and collaborate with many local and international brands, delivering unique entertainment solutions.

“Castle Milk Stout has given me the room to show off a bit. Expect delicious surprises on the menu, in a very beautiful setting. The day will be a culinary journey. When you’re done with dessert, I’m hoping that you won’t be able to pick a favourite.”

Tibz will host 100 guests in the exclusive Castle Milk Stout marquee on Sunday, 08 October 2017.

The Fugard Theatre brings acclaimed production of iconic musical KING KONG ‘home’ to Joburg

Over half a century since the world premiere of the original production of KING KONG – THE MUSICAL, Eric Abraham and the Fugard Theatre bring this legendary and iconic musical ‘home’ to Johannesburg. 
The run comes hot off the Cape Town season, which played to five star reviews, rapturous responses and sold-out houses at the Fugard Theatre.  


Eric Abraham produces and presents this Fugard Theatre production, with the official opening taking place on Sunday 17 September and runs until Sunday 8 October 2017 on The Mandela stage at the Joburg Theatre in Braamfontein. 

The historic original show opened at the Wits University Great Hall on February 2 1959, as South Africa’s first black musical set in Sophiatown in Johannesburg in the late-fifties. Among the opening night multi-racial audience was Nelson Mandela with his wife Winnie. Of this momentous occasion, the Sunday Times raved ‘theatre in South Africa has taken an enormous leap’ while the Golden City Post wrote ‘tears of exultation as I feel that a new era in Non-White entertainment has been born with the production of King Kong.. I became breathless with the splendor of the production’.

The production went on to tour South Africa for two years, being seen by 200,000 South Africans and playing to record-breaking mixed race audiences – as apartheid was being implemented -before transferring in February 1961 to London’s West End for a 200-performance run. KING KONG helped in part to launch the international careers of Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela among many others.

“The partnership has been amazing and working on the winter campaign has been dope! I was given leeway to give as much creative input as possible. The collaboration and ideas needed to be as authentic as possible and true to who I am. It was interesting being on the opposite end of building a relatively new brand especially being a creative myself. The music video was a great highlight for sure – the buildup to this finale has been phenomenal” comments rap artist 2Lee Stark.
