It has been a cold week in Johannesburg, South Africa, but this weekend’s DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival definitely warmed things up. Held out at Huddle Park in the city, thousands of music and food lovers turned up to enjoy the festivities. Let me tell you, the food stalls almost ended me. I haven’t seen, tasted and consumed such delicious food in a long time. My friend runs a catering company called The Counter and her gourmet hotdogs were incredible. I got me a smoothie from one of the stalls, smashed loads of fudge tasters in my face. I had samoosas and then I was full… thank goodness. My friends had Thai food, bumped into Donovan Goliath who absolutely raved about the Spanish chow and then Pabi Moloi (who is looking amazing) was eating something so delicious I think I may just try and replicate it during the week. Food was famaze! It was also awesome to hang out and see Food Network’s Siba Mtongana. She’s just a gem!
I wasn’t able to stay for the whole event, but I did get to see some awesome musicians on stage. Vusi Mahlasela was on form, as usual. He welcomed a new addition/ stand in to his team. His drummer had taken ill, so the drummer’s nephew stepped in and did best. It was awesome to see Vusi giving the young many credit. It’s a big thing and I reckon he was pretty stoked. I also got to see the highly acclaimed Louie Vega again at the Kaya FM stage. A legend who still knows how to make a party! I was pretty bummed that I couldn’t stay for the incredible Chaka Khan, but from what I saw on social media, people LOVED her. Even if it was cold 😉 Check out the gallery below:
