Cognac and Cuban cigars at SA movie launch of Jamie Foxx and TI’s new film

Johannesburg - Jamie Foxx and TI’s new film, Sleepless, was launched in style worldwide this week, including in South Africa.

A gentleman’s evening at Ster-Kinekor in Sandton saw a whole bunch of influencers rock up dressed like James Bond.

Together, these brothers were schooled in the arts of sipping Cognac and smoking Cuban cigars.

It was a classy yet laid-back affair.


Those in attendance were mainly men, but it was unclear if that was the point of the event.

Martell Cognac provided the libations for the evening, and even had an expert on hand to offer drinking tips and explain a bit of the history behind the beverage.

Other than the movie being an action film in which Foxx, a cop, becomes entangled in gangster life when his son is kidnapped, the Cognac and the film didn’t really tie together.

Nevertheless, a good deal of fun, sipping and puffing was had by all.
