A few lucky ladies got to spend their weekend with their favourite influencers this past weekend on an awesome cruise ship.

TV presenter and singer Rorisang Thandekiso alongside influencers and entrepreneurs Sibulele Sibaca, Mihali Matokazi-Bangisi, Aurelia Nxumalo and Kelly Thela, hosted 100 women for a weekend-long party from Saturday, 19 November to Monday, 21 November to close off the year.

The event was organised by hair brand Sta-So-Fro, and the women were taken to the MSC Orchestra cruise in Durban, KZN.

Kelly, who is a property entrepreneur and content creator, spoke to SunBuzz about hosting the ladies.

“Sta-So-Fro came to us a couple of months ago and said they want to pamper and spoil a few women. And this was because women don’t get a break.

“Year in and out, you find a woman working hard and not taking some time out to relax and let loose,” she said.

“So, they came up with this competition, where they could spoil 50 women and their best friends to let their hair down and be reminded what it’s like to just have a good time.”

Kelly said she hoped that the women took some life lessons from the trip.

“The one thing I hope they took from this trip is that they should prioritise themselves. That they can schedule their own resting time. They can and they need to start planning their own fun time,” said Kelly.

One of the winners, Kgomotso Tshanki from Orchards in Tshwane, thanked the brand.

“I’m so happy to be here. It’s the best experience ever.

“Thank you to Sta-So-Fro for giving me this opportunity.

“I got to meet beautiful ladies, very strong beautiful ladies,” she said.

“The day I bought the product that led me to winning this competition, as I was having a really bad day. I could even say it was the worst day of my life. But that hairspray brought me here. Basically, R49 brought me here.”

Another winner, Tsholofelo Rantshi from KwaMhlanga in Mpumalanga, said: “I really enjoyed the trip. I’ve learnt a lot about myself and my capabilities. We were taught the saying ‘I am one, I am both’ here and I’ll be taking it with me forever.

“I’d like to thank them for giving me this opportunity to come and enjoy the cruise and being between the oceans.”
