We’re back and 2019 is looking better than ever! Now there is no better way to kickstart the year than with a little partying, a little networking and a little fun, right?
The event that we’re talking about is the 27 Boxes Photo Booth Party featuring Austin Malema. When we heard he’d be in Melville this past weekend we couldn’t resist. We linked up with our favourite sassy babe Mpumi Mlambo for a killer evening and a few bubbly drinks. We walked into creative chaos, the young, the fly and the awesome were there getting together to get their creative juices flowing. While wandering through a room buzzing with inspiration, Mpumi had to take a little time to send some love to TFG for making sure she arrived at this party looking the part! Telling us “Like they always say, when you look good you feel good.”
There’s no doubt that if you’re under the age of a hundred and have access to Instagram as well as an appreciation for pop culture you’ve seen the work of Austin Malema. You’ve definitely seen your fave local rappers throw him a photo cred on some of the most incredible photos you have ever seen. So, who is the man behind the lens? While growing up in Venda he was introduced to photography by a relative who would take pictures of his family and it was love at first click.
Everything he touches seems to go viral. His Instagram is one of the most popular pages in South Africa, and he was the official photographer for all three of Cassper Nyovest’s Fill Up concerts. He was also the official photographer for Capsule SA, as well as shooting one of AKA’s The Supa Mega Show concert series as well as Riky Rick’s performance at the South African Music Awards (SAMAs).
So, what does 2019 hold? Apparently more, lots lots more! And we cannot wait to hit the like button on what’s next.
See how this picture-perfect event was captured on camera and shop Mpumi’s standout look from Foschini, The FIX and Collette. Looking good and feeling good- now that’s our mantra for 2019 with TFG.
