All roads will be leading to the Sun City Resort in the North West this Valentine’s Day for the much anticipated Longest Kiss Competition. The longest kiss contest will see willing lovers from all the corners of Mzansi vying for the title. Successful participants will then represent South Africa in a showdown with other African countries to be held at a later date.
The event will be hosted at the Sun City Holiday Resort on a befitting Sunday afternoon.
The event is being organized by the Book of African records in association with Sun City, RedBull and Radio 103FM.
