It’s one of the most loved stories in South Africa and clearly the fans of the movie franchise are a very dedicated bunch! On Saturday afternoon, Times Media Films hosted an autograph signing session with Troye Sivan, Caspar Lee, Alex McGregor, Blessing Xaba and the rest of the Spud 3 stars in Nelson Mandela Square. As the hours passed and the news of their favourite stars being in town spread, the crowd numbers grew. I saw many tears, lots of screams and just an overwhelmingly positive response to the movie and its stars. Later that night, the Spud 3 stars hit up the premiere in Sandton, and again the fans turned up in their numbers. I instigated a bit, by getting Troye, Sven, Caspar and Travis to get the fans revved up and screaming… Naturally the obliged and naturally their fans reacted positively.
Step aside Justin Bieber, the YouTube sensations are in the building and ready to shine! I’ve got some videos to post too, but here are some pictures from the premiere and autograph signing.
