10 January 2018 | Athi Bekwa

The sun is out, the horses are ready and our wardrobes have never been more fabulous. Everything in the atmosphere is signaling the time for the 134th Annual Sun Met celebrated with Mumm. The Kenilworth Racecourse will be housing both racing enthusiasts and fashionistas on January, 27 to celebrate African majesty in colours, prints and textures and House Of Mumm very own Chief Of Entertainment, Usain Bolt.

In the thrilling build-up to Africa’s most prestigious horseracing event, arguably the most naturally gifted athlete the world has ever seen, Bolt will encourage fans of Mumm to celebrate their way to victory, not waiting for the finish line to pop the champagne as he has done throughout his career, adopting the positive mindset of a true champion.

“I will lead, energize and excite the world in celebration – as I do on the track. This job is not just a title for me. I will work with the Mumm executive team to make sure that we continue to push the boundaries for consumers around the spirit of celebration.”
