This year's July might have been a lot quieter then it usually is but there were some notable stars like Boity Thulo and Cassper Nyovest.
Boity, who specifically wanted to be dressed by an African designer, said that she told Orapeleng Modutle that she wanted to look sexy, classy but most importantly be comfortable. “I wanted to look like a star so I wanted a rich colour because Africa is full of richness. I also didn’t want something too obvious. I am one of the very few people wearing purple so that great,” she said.
Boity said she will be releasing her third single in August. Called Own Your Throne she said she was looking forward to releasing it and speaks about owning your throne and uplifting women.
Another star who was enjoying himself was DJ Sbu. After missing the July for almost five, he returned in his capacity as Brut influencer. Dressed by Gallery Squared in Sandton, the entrepreneur said he wanted a looked that complimented his businessman image.
“As a businessman, I wanted to wear something that spoke to that and that’s why my partnership with Brut works so beautifully because I used to use this deodorant in varsity but now they are moving towards a new market,” he said.
Hip hop superstar Cassper Nyovest who was also at the Chaise Lounge said he styled himself. “I have lost a lot of weight so I wanted to celebrate that by dressing myself. I chose the fabric by myself and designed this suit with my tailor. It’s always easier to dress yourself when you are confident,” he said.
He said as an African star himself, there was not much to do except show up and be the theme.
The Move For Me star was also wearing a dramatic neckpiece which he described as a family piece which was made by a South African jeweller and has 7000 real diamonds.
A fan of the July, Cassper performed at three marquees which he said shows his relevancy. “If you haven’t been asked to perform at the July then you haven’t made it”, he said.IOL
