Flavours of Africa: Brand South Africa Marks Africa Day with Celebs

It was massive fun and excitement yesterday as celebrities and esteemed guests came together this Africa Day to try their hands at creating authentic African food with Brand South Africa.

South African Celebrities like TV personality, Bonginkosi Dlamini and comedian Lesego Tlhabi were joined by VIP guests such as African enthusiast Adetunji Omo and UN Filmmaker Sara Chitambo. They tried their hands on both African and continental cuisine.

From African Style Coconut Chicken to Grilled Tilapia, guest learned the ins-and-outs of African cooking techniques, and at the same time, discovered more about Africa’s unique cuisine.

Assisted by the chefs from Why Cook, the rookie cooks took to the task with enthusiasm. And of course, there was a little competition, with guests trying their utmost to create the tastiest spin on the dish.

The guests were also quizzed on some African general knowledge, acquainting themselves with African history and current affairs. Do you know which African country produces the most cocoa? The answer may surprise you!

Organised by Brand South Africa, as part of their Play Your Part programme, the event was important in communicating South Africa’s integral relationship with the rest of the continent, both culturally and economically. As patriotic South Africans, we are also proud Africans.

Africa Day reminds Africans of their innately African roots - and only by immersing ourselves in African culture can we truly appreciate Africa’s rich influence.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
