Brutal Fruit Spritzer’s first birthday celebrations held in Jozi today proved that success really does taste better shared. Over 100 of South Africa’s most powerful influencers and media personalities joined the brand at an exclusive birthday brunch at a unique location, The Execuflora Greenhouse near Fourways, set amongst lush greenery in the heart of the city.
Brutal Fruit’s #SpritzerBirthdayBrunch offered guests a mouth-watering menu that incorporated some of the Spritzer’s ingredients into the food. From mini watermelon cakes drizzled with Brutal Fruit Spritzer to a syrup tailor-made for the event, guests were treated to a blissfully special occasion.
Brutal Fruit Brand Manager Gugu Dlamini says: “Brutal Fruit believes in the power of the collective, South Africans – supporting and celebrating each other’s successes and milestones in life. Brutal Fruit is proud to be the curator of these influential collectives. This is the very essence of our brand ethos – simply that success tastes better shared.”
Nigerian radio personality, television host, vlogger, lifestyle entrepreneur and author Toke Makinwa joined us in SA and celebrated her own birthday alongside Brutal Fruit Spritzer, and as the keynote speaker she spoke about her own personal success, which she largely attributes to the support she received from various women throughout her life. Makinwa encouraged guests not to compare themselves with others and to always celebrate their own progress, no matter how small or slow it may seem. No success is without hard work and effort. She reminded the audience that during a journey to success there will be failures, but you should always remember to fail forward, learn from those mistakes and continue on your personal journey.
