Richard and Ricki in Jo’burg, part 1
Thanks to 4ever over at the Oboma forum for this:
(shows how disconnected I’ve been from the BB world – sorry for the delay of this wonderful story)
Richard and Ricki jetted into Jozi yesterday and have made the best of their very short time here. They had hardly booked into their hotel … when they were whisked off too Mandela Square in Sandton … for some serious SA shopping!!
Richard was turning heads with his famous smile and yes … with the renowned paint still adorning his dreads … & looking as FUNKY as ever. In between posing for pics with adoring fans & giving out autographs … they both still managed to get their shopping done before rushing back to the hotel to get ready for the Theatre.
We fetched them at their hotel and set off for … TEATRO MONTECASINO … to see the very popular theatre production of THE LION KING.
We had a pre-theatre dinner at the restaurant … The Meat Co … and it was good to sit and just chat about absolutely everything past & present. It was also so heart-warming to see how happy & relaxed both Richard & Ricki are … & how focused Richard is to do Tanzania proud in the future as the winner of BB Africa 2.
He has so much work lined up & it is quite evident that Richard knows exactly what he is doing !!
What with Richard being so interested in making Film Directing his career he was fascinated with the creative side of the theatre production of the Lion King. They both enjoyed the show so much and were most impressed with the spectacular costumes & especially those of the huge animals that passed them as they came down the aisles and onto the stage.
On our way to have post theatre drinks … Richard posing next to a cute little Italian Fiat. The theme and décor at Montecasino is all Italian.
