Meropa Casino & Entertainment World’s Jembe Tarven nearly burst at the seams on Saturday evening when the third annual Limpopo Kofifi Dance was hosted. Participants relived the South African dance music history and Sophiatown’s tavern scenes.
The overall dress theme was vintage 1960’s as inspired by the Sophiatown culture and lifestyle.
An exhibition of vintage cars ranging from Chevrolet and Mecedes-Benz, to Peugeot and Volkswagen brought even more excitement to the event.
Public Relations and Promotions Manager at Meropa Casino & Entertainment World, Raksha Gunpath said they were happy with the turnout. “The people enjoyed dancing to the old school music and it was also a good platform for people to network,” Gunpath said.
She added that they were delighted to host the event at Jembe Tarven which is sporting a fresh new look after recently being revitalised with a refreshed interior and ramped up menu to create a more contemporary cocktail lounge feel. “We are delighted with the remodelling and we believe that guests will feel at home and enjoy our new menu which will soon be available,” Gunpath said.
One of the people who attended the event, Fortunate Mokgehle described the event as a celebration of the people who lived in 1960s. “It was more than a turn up. It was more of an extravaganza and celebration of fashion. The event also gave us an opportunity to reflect on how people lived in the 1960s,” Mokgehle said.
