Kenny trades sushi for tacky

Johannesburg - From "sushi king" to "mogodu king" – this is how controversial businessman Kenny Kunene celebrated his 41st birthday this year.

The party, which took place last Monday night, was a vast difference from last year’s opulent spree that made headlines when he ate sushi from models’ near-naked bodies.

This year, Kunene took his gig to the masses in Alexandra and toasted being a year older with tripe, chicken feet and farm chicken – on plates.

The venue was Ko Stupung on 15th avenue, a popular hang-out spot that specialises in traditional fare.

Kunene told the crowd he’d brought his party to the township because the people made him “feel at home”.

Kunene placed a big stage in the middle of the street, where tables with ice buckets filled with bottles of bubbly waited for his VIP guests. Unfortunately, most of them, like ANC Youth League spokesperson Floyd Shivambu and businessman Collen Mashawana, were hesitant to share the spotlight.

As for Kunene, he celebrated in his usual flamboyant style by arriving with an entourage of scantily clad women in camouflage bikinis holding toy AK47s.

The businessman wore a traditional Nigerian outfit and sunglasses.

Big Nuz delighted the crowd when they performed their famous hits, but the crowd went wild when Kunene, whose stage name is Mathousand, joined them to collaborate.

The entire time he was on stage, the businessman popped champagne and poured glasses for those closest to the stage.

Looks like Kunene may have also had a premonition, because on the stage there was a huge screen displaying pictures of slain Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi with titles like “The Leader”, “The Ruler” and other complimentary descriptions of the ex-dictator..
