Mazenod set for tal­ent show

Lesotho Times - - Weekender - Mo­halenyane Phakela

EN­TER­TAIN­MENT out­fit, Blue­tone-ent. Orga, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Mazenod business com­mu­nity, will host a tal­ent show at Mazenod High School on 6 De­cem­ber.

The event, dubbed “Fes­tive Tal­ent Xpres­sion”, is meant to af­ford up­com­ing artistes a plat­form to showcase their tal­ent.

“There is so much tal­ent in this coun­try that has not yet been dis­cov­ered due to limited plat­forms to en­able our young gen­er­a­tion to ex­press them­selves,” one of the or­ga­niz­ers, poet Sekete Le­saoana, said.

“Our aim is to give free pub­lic­ity to tal­ent, from fash­ion de­sign to po­etry and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.”

Ac­cord­ing to Le­saoana, there will also be a num­ber of es­tab­lished per­form­ers at the event to serve as an in­spi­ra­tion to the bud­ding artistes.

“It is al­ways great and mo­ti­vat­ing to per­form along­side some­one you look up to,” he said.

“There­fore, we have in­vited some prom­i­nent artists to come and show the way to the young blood wish­ing to join this in­dus­try and teach them how they can sur­vive or even be­come stars.”

Le­saoana said they would also ex­plore ways by which youths can make a liv­ing from their tal­ents.

“Grad­u­ates and school leavers are al­ways com­plain­ing about the high un­em­ploy­ment rate and we think it is high time they ex­tract that spe­cial tal­ent stored in them to earn a liv­ing,” he added.

Or­gan­is­ers in­tend to hold the show on an an­nual ba­sis, with a num­ber of other shows in be­tween.

Among the es­tab­lished acts billed to per­form and share their ex­pe­ri­ences is Ju­vinile, Snizz, Se­vere Agony, Fa­tal Verb, Liq­uid Gold, MC Fire and Sekete Le­saoa.
