2015-06-02 13:02

Cape Town - Bonang Matheba, D’Banj, Da Les, Dimplez, Banky W and David Tlale are jetting off to Mauritius this week to live the good life from Wednesday to Friday.

This is as their fabulous jobs as CÎROC premium vodka ambassadors, and they will be joined by other A-listers to launch the new CÎROC pineapple flavour.

Bonang has just returned from a super fancy shoot on the island of Zanzibar, and Queen B says the destination was chosen by the global CÎROC team. She says "when we (the CÎROC team) heard about it they said 'Hell yes!'". Matheba says; "I’m most excited to be party with the full Ciroc Africa, who are all party animals, and I love a good party too. So being the only woman in the team, I’m excited to party up with all the talented guys in the circle".

Da Les who is currently working on the follow up to his Mandela Money album says he’s also excited to party with the other members of the team. The North God said; "I’m working on so much right now but most importantly new music. I'm in a great space of wanting to give my fans new music because you gotta keep it moving".

Given that their brand is all about celebrating when you have arrived, Da Les says he knew he had arrived when he joined the global vodka brand.

Da Les will be joined on stage in Mauritius by Nigerian megastars and fellow ambassadors D’Banj and Banky W.

Award winning Dj Dimplez says he’s currently working on releasing more music from his album Zeal. He also says he knew he had arrived from the very first day as a Ciroc ambassador.

He said; "You see these kinds of launches on tv, and then we were given the full experience and it was like ‘woah!’ and that’s when I knew".

Fashion design king David Tlale says;"We will definitely bring the South African swag and flavour to this. It is on!"

He also added; "Though, I’m aware of the work of some of the members of the Ciroc Africa Circle, I hope we’ll get an opportunity to discuss work and see where possible synergies lie. I’m truly looking forward to sharing the experience with everyone and make the circle bigger".

As if that weren’t enviable enough, their time in a Mauritius will be all about the good life. Their schedule includes the signature all white party as well a party on a catamaran sipping super fancy cocktails.

A taste of paradise, CÎROC Pineapple will be released around the world in 2015 and South Africa will be one of the first country’s to receive it, later this year. So although we’ll miss out on the paradise party, we’ll get a taste of it later this year. We can’t wait to see the pics.
