S Mag suggests: A few essentials for Distruction Boyz's BET outing
This week sees gqom kings Distruction Boyz jet off to the States for the BET Awards. The Boyz will be contesting the Best International Act category along with fellow Africans rapper Cassper Nyovest, Nigerian musicians Davido and Tiwa Savage in a pool that also includes talent from France, and the UK.
With their growing profile, the duo is not new to international travel as they have been touring the world taking their beats as afar as Dubai and Spain.
As they jet off to Los Angeles, here’s some of what we at Sowetan S Mag suggest they pack along with them:
We don’t want our boys losing their cool at any point - especially in the Los Angeles heat and under the bright lights at the BETs. So we recommend packing fragrances that will have them feeling good and can keep up with their busy schedules. A protective and long-lasting deodorant like Nivea Men Cool Kick Roll-on, 50ml, R22 that can last from BET red carpet to after party and a statement cologne like Valentino Uomo Absolu Noir EDP, 100ml, R1 815 with woody oriental notes is are bound to turn a few A-list heads.
After a long-haul flight landing straight into a hectic schedule, we want the duo’s skin to recover fast; ready to meet and greet. We suggest the Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque, 75ml, R849 to apply as they touch down to instantly revive and hydrate skin. To keep the protection going all day, Neutrogena HydroBoost City Shield Hydrating Lotion R139.95 should do the trick as it is anti-pollution and has SPF."
For a dope mix of stylish and functional wear, we recommend the PUMA XO Parallel sneaker, R4 299, available at Shelflife. Inspired by military and utilitarian gear this shoe is ideal for our boys especially if they are planning on taking long walks while keeping it popping. They can pair this shoe with their favourite sweat pants for added comfort.
Collecting souvenirs is a big part of travelling. The Callum festival backpack, R399, Superbalist, is the perfect accessory to tag along, as it will add to the boys’ style while giving them an option of extra storage for anything that will catch their eyes. The duo can also use the bag to keep all their grooming essentials on hand.
