White Star Super Maize Meal and DRUM Magazine hosted a day of family fun this past weekend, all for the love of good food and music. The Chilla Nathi Cookout Experience took place at Mayor’s Garden, Alexandra Park in Pietermaritzburg.
The lush green park proved to be the ideal location for the autumn day of festivities and was the perfect backdrop to trendy stalls filled with cutting-edge fashion and accessories, beauty and health supplies and delectable food with braai meat straight off the hot coals. White Star’s very own stall hosted exciting recipe demonstrations and delicious tastings for everyone.
The Kiddies Craft Village was a safe space for children under 12 to release their inner artist and create their own masterpieces or be transformed into their favourite superhero through face painting. Metro FM’s Sunday Soul Therapy presenter, DJ Msizi Shembe was also on the decks to entertain with a mix of nostalgic throwbacks and current hits.
White Star Marketing Manager, Mokhele Makhothi, said: “We’re proud to be involved in such a great family event and have the opportunity to bring joy to the residents of Pietermaritzburg, providing a space for them to have fun together.”
White Star partnered with DRUM Magazine to sponsor the Chilla Nathi Cookout Experience as part of their commitment to hosting exciting events such as cook-offs, stokvels and music festivals with families and celebrities, providing South Africans with great shared experiences and creating memories with their loved ones. “White Star, South Africa’s favourite maize meal, is the perfect ingredient to round off any event, from braais and dinners to get-togethers and everything in between,” concludes Makhothi.
The next White Star DRUM Shisa Nyama event will be held in Durban at Joe Cool’s on Sunday 27 May 2018, so be sure to get your tickets and enjoy a day out with your friends and family surrounded by sea, sun, and sand.
