We take over LA!

The most enviable trip to L.A leading up to the BET Experience and BET Awards was about to kick start, with O.R Tambo being the meeting place. The only possible downside to this trip was the possible jet lag everyone would face, and even that didn't qualify to take away from the excitement everyone would experience.
The massive BET Awards viewer’s prize sponsored by Russian Bear vodka was snatched by Kimberly's Solani Mbombi who chose her cousin Hlanganani Chauke to take over L.A with her. The two confessed to having a hard time sleeping the night before the much anticipated adventure. Talk about anxious.
7:15 PM was the departure time and the excitement of LA was fully realised. It was a dream come true for Solani and Hlanganani, who had never had their passports stamped. As if that wasn't enough, they chilled with the BET Awards TV host for the BET Awards Nandi Mngoma, and Metro FM's Lerato Kganyago
A four hour stopover in Dubai was followed by a 16 hour flight to Los Angeles. Lerato and Nandi enjoyed the leisure of smooth flying in business class.
For Solani, touching down at the LAX airport a week after KimYe were photographed there was one for the books. What awaited her the following day was a city tour of her life stopping in Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Walk of Fame and Universal Studios. Treating herself to a huge sale clearly made her wardrobe happy too. We'll make sure we post OOTD(Outfit Of The Day) pictures along the trip ;).
