On Saturday, February 23rd BlackberrySA hosted their second Blackberry Secret Gig in South Africa. These Secret Gigs are so exclusive that you can either have to be invited or with some luck win tickets to get inside! This year Grammy-nominated hip-hop star Kid Cudi was in the country to perform for the lucky attendees.
Guests were to meet up at a meeting point and from there transported to the secret event in a branded Blackberry/Kid Cudi shuttle (So secret that the windows were covered up!).
While at the event a booth filled especially with their new “Blackberry Z10” smart-phones running Blackberry’s new software (Blackberry 10) were hooked up to HD Televisions using the phones new TV-out functionality. The guests got one on one time with the New Blackberry Z10’s and even got their photos taken with the phone (That were uploaded to their Facebook page).
All though this was all exciting, everyone was there for one reason, to see Kid Cudi! After introductory performances from the likes of AKA, DJ VigiLante, DJ Milkshake, DJ Mo and X the Green Panther. We were finally whisked away to another stage! Kid Cudi arrived on stage and the crowd went wild. He performed his hit “Pursuit of Happiness,” amongst his other popular songs.
While searching around the fantastic venue now known as “Scarlett Ribbon” we spotted Pixie Bennett looking exquisite in a pair of Melissa shoes, also attending was E-tv Craze presenter Lee-Roy Wright.
The companies putting this fantastic event together were none other than Idea Engineers and G&G Productions, a dynamite combination as this event was a total success! A Special Thanks to Masamo Mojapelo for giving us this amazing opportunity!
