SPOTTED: Joburg #HouseOfPlay Party
On the 12th of May 2018 the Flying Fish premium flavoured beer brand turned up the play by adding some flavour to everyday mundane household chores with their third and final edition of the exclusive #HouseOfPlay series hosted in the leafy suburbs of Illovo, Johannesburg.
Flying Fish knows that adulting can be tedious especially on a Saturday when the last thing you want to do is all the housework. So to add some play to these chores the brand flipped all your average housework on its head at the most playful house party of all time. Washing dishes turned into a foam party, the tedious task of cleaning the pool became a showcase of playful pool girls and boys. Making the bed turned into a playful pillow fight and washing windows became an optical illusion of mirrors in one of the many entertaining rooms that guests could frequent in the #HouseOfPlay.
Guests were entertained by the likes of SPHectecula & DJ Naves, Twins on Decks and DJ PH to brew out the boring and brew in the flavour by making chores exciting with Ayanda MVP as event MC. Local DJ Roger Goode kicked off the line-up with a flavoursome silent disco set showcasing that you can always brew out the boring by listening to your favourite playlist.
Adding to the afternoon line- up was Moonchild and Sho Madjozi who brought the house down, and not forgetting award winning rapper, Rouge.
