Kenny Kunene to spice up life in East London

By Lindile Sifile | Apr 20, 2011 | COMMENTS [ 67 ]

KING of bling Kenny Kunene, who famously eats sushi off naked models, is to spice up East London's nightlife with the opening of a Zar Lounge at Hemingways Mall.

The exclusive venue will be the playground of East London big spenders and high rollers as has been the trend at his two other franchises in Cape Town and Johannesburg, where a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue costs R5200 (R200 a tot) and Ace of Spade bubbly sets you back by R9000 a bottle. Entry is set at a cool R200 a person.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Dispatch yesterday, Kunene said he had taken over the former Fashion TV (FTV) building at the Hemingways Mall.

The East London Zar will open before the end of July.

"We have done market research on East London and though the venue will be up-market, exclusive in the same league as other Zar Lounges elsewhere, we will make prices reasonable and affordable to people who want to be part of the classy life we are trying to promote," he said.

Local party-lovers will be pampered with the famous Zar's elegant decor, furniture and over-the-top parties that the club has become known for.

He decided to open the lounge in East London after requests from people.

I think KK came across large amount of money and ZAR is one of the way to laundy the money into the bank.

I think he should build in the future of the country by investing in educational programmes (the Gov has failed) instead of having night clubs all over the show, I understand that he is a businessman and obviously has capitalist tendencies, making profits. Investing in the youth is the best thing one can do, I think we have more than enough liquor outlets now...
This is very sad, and yes I agree, he will fall, just like Masinga and Mthembu, best wishes to him anyway...
