SOUTH African actress and TV presenter Boity Thulo, who was set to party up a storm this past Saturday at the first ever V-Lifestyle luxury party failed to pitch up. The party was held at the Confab Bistro in Windhoek. It transpired that Thulo ditched V-Lifestyle party for another event that was seen on her instagram official account. The well attended event, which cost N$ 500 a ticket, would have given a chance to ordinary people to party with Thulo, but alas they were all disappointed. Organiser and host of the V-Lifestyle Party Julia Kadhikwa expressed her disappointment and betrayal by Thulo and her team, by bailing on Namibia for event. “I couldn’t postpone the event as the hype would have never be the same. I had already also confirmed with Minnie (Dlamini Jones) coming, so too much was involved for Boity’s case to postpone the event,” Kadhikwa said. South African Minnie Dlamini Jones, was a special guest at the party. In an email seen by Confidente, Thulo‘ s booking agent, Amaru Da Costa wrote that Thulo would no longer be able to travel to Namibia on 4 August 2018 as initially agreed. “We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this might cause, we have explored every option, but it doesn’t seem realistic hence our request to please find another date to the appearance,” Da Costa wrote. Da Costa represents some of the biggest South African acts, including the likes of DJ Black Coffee and rapper Ricky Rick. Kadhikwa added that Thulo ’s team had wanted them to book a private jet for her to quickly jet in and out, which would have cost N$ 140 000 on top of the N$ 20 000 shehad paid to ADC Agency in June for Thulo s appearance. “If it was an urgent matter like death in the family or something urgent I would have whole heartily understood,” she says. “She decided that Namibia can wait, while she easily took another booking knowing that we already booked fully paid flights and accommodation. That was just unprofessional of her,” she noted. The event was attended by some of Namibia’s biggest entertainers, including the likes of Gazza, Odile Gertze, Selma Kamanya and Ann Singer. Minnie Dlamini Jones, who was a special guest at the party seemed to have enjoyed herself, as she could be seen having the time of her life dancing and chatting the night away with Namibians.
