There was plenty of sushi - in fact, too much of it - but there were no naked women lying on their backs last night as Kenny Kunene hosted a preview of his reality TV show So What, premiering on e.tv tomorrow night.
Kunene told gathered media, friends and celebrities that he had earlier been approached by German commercial channel RTL - which also has a presence in countries such as Holland, Belgium, Poland and Hungary - that was willing to broadcast his reality show.
"They were going to put me in front of 18 million people, but I said to [business partner] Gayton [McKenzie]: 'Let's start at home'," Kunene said.
He said his critics should know that despite him not being "a genius", no stupid man could own a club in a five-star hotel in a city that has the biggest economy on the continent.
Kunene also used the opportunity to respond to critics who had claimed he had not given anything to charity, saying he was not the one to make a "noise about what I do". He said if he were requested to do so, he could fill a book.
The pilot episode will feature the wedding of President Jacob Zuma's daughter, Dudu Zuma, in East London - with never-before-seen footage of both the white wedding and traditional ceremony.
At last night's launch, Uyanda Mbuli was a winner in a purple jumpsuit and a leopard-print clutch. Supersport's Carol Manana matched her patterned dress with a figure belt and heels, whereas good-girl-gone-bad Nonhle Thema looked demure in a figure-hugging dress.
Babalwa Mneno, Khanyi Mbau, Iko Mash and Mike Mvelase (Khaphela in the soapie Generations) were also there .
