The Good-luck Bar in downtown Johannesburg was buzzing with hip hop heads that were in support of female rapper Rouge as she launched her new album titled The New Era Sessions last Friday. It was nothing short of glamour featuring artists like Shekinah, Moozlie, Sho Madjozi and Ms Cosmo just to name a few. Flying Fish ensured that everyone had a drink in hand. MAC and AU Gold were also part of the sponsors for the event.
Rouge, whose real name is Deko Barbara-Jessica Wedi, emphasized on the importance of women in the industry coming together to prove that they can compete with men in any capacity, especially with hip hop being known as a male dominated genre. The masses are certainly going to groove and relate to this work of art. We wish Rouge all the success in the world as she takes over not just the country but the entire African continent.
Her intention to empower women was really felt throughout her launch event, especially with guys also rapping along to her songs.

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.
