South Africa to host Russians for FIFA World Cup!

May 31, 2018

On a quest in a kingdom far far away. In a land most famous for its vodka and not its cabernet, Minnie Dlamini set out to find the coolest most impressive Russian to leave their Soccer World Cup hosting country- to watch and experience the disk game la e’khaya!

There are Russians on our stoep!

Slava is a witty gent who seems to really love his soccer, knowing facts about the stadiums in Russia.
Veronic is a lively lady who loves her retail therapy, with a shopping centre being the perfect place for her.
Dima is a foodie who enjoys sharing Russian cuisine with loved ones while instilling old-world Russian culture.
Tatyana is a fun loving lady. She swears that should you find yourself in Moscow- be sure to try the Vodka!

What to do. Where to do. How to do it. But who will do it?

With our guests well on the way, I wonder who will accommodate our visitors?


Someone with a genuine passion for soccer would be a great match. A savant fan who is just full of facts and trivia about everything from game statistics to details about the coaches. Perhaps Bennie McCarthy or even former Minister of Sports Mr. Fikile Mbalula would best be suited for an ultra VIP host.


A self-proclaimed lover of fashion and shopping with her bubbly personality would be great with someone with the same passions. Added a vivacious personality, maybe a Khanyi Mbau, Nomzamo Mbatha or even Bonang Matheba (daaarling). With any one of these homegrown proudly South African beauties, Veronic is bound to have an excellent time.

For the love of food, Dima will have an excellent time in South Africa seeing how food is at the centre of everything that we breathe life into. From shisanyama to nama ya tlhogo ka umhluzi to mala mogodu to potjiekos to malva pudding to (I could literally go on forever, but you get my point). Dima will be spoilt for choice and will be made to feel most welcome by a fellow foodie. Honestly speaking, anyone’s grandmother’s house that is rich in culture and care would be great. If not, we see Dima being fulfilled (literally) should he be hosted by celebrity chef Benny Masekwameng or all-around media personality Somizi Hlongo.


South Africans not only know how, but live for epic nights! Dubbed the House music capital of the world, I can think of no better place then Tatyana to be during this World Cup than right here in South Africa. I am hoping she is hosted in Durban and is present for the Durban July as well for a truly all rounded social experience of South Africa. With Babes Wodumo, Pearl Thusi or Zodwa Mabantu, Tatyana will have the best World Cup by far.
