REV­EL­ERS are in for a treat this month as the Sun In­ter­na­tional Le­sotho group has an ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties lined up for the fes­tive sea­son.

First off is the Pool­side Sum­mer Fun event which caters for all age groups and avail­able ev­ery day. The pools are de­signed in such a way that they can ac­com­mo­date chil­dren and adults de­pend­ing on the depth. There will also be mu­sic on se­lected week­ends in con­junc­tion with the Ul­ti­mate Ra­dio and en­ter­tain­ment out­fit, LESTOKU.

Fur­ther­more, Sun In­ter­na­tional Le­sotho has part­nered with LESTOKU to host a show called “Sa­vanna Nights” ev­ery Fri­day and Satur­day through­out the whole month at Maseru Sun Ca­banas’ Mo­hobe Bar. Loads of prizes will be up for grabs as the dee­jays pump up the jams.

As if that is not enough, the ho­tel group has also lined up a Christ­mas Pool Party. Lo­cal dee- jays and rap­per, St­lofa, will en­ter­tain the crowd along with South African artists billed to per­form at Set­soto Sta­dium on the day. The ho­tel group’s en­ter­tain­ment of­fer­ing will be wrapped up by a Fam­ily Day Lunch the fol­low­ing day in both ho­tels’ restau­rants.

Mean­while, LESTOKU has also or­gan­ised a show set for Set­soto Sta­dium on Christ­mas day, which will fea­ture the likes of South African mu­si­cal gi­ants Mi Casa, Mafik­i­zolo and Big Nuz.

Mi Casa is a deep, soul­ful and jazzy house trio, based in Jo­han­nes­burg, con­sist­ing of Dr Duda on pro­duc­tion and pi­ano, J’Some­thing on quitar and vo­cal as well as Mo-T on the trum­pet.

How­ever, Tebza was killed after they re­leased their sopho­more al­bum Si­bongile. Theo and Nh­lanhla took a twoyear break after the re­lease of Six Mabone and only came back last year with such hits as Khona and Hap­pi­ness which landed them a num­ber of SAMA awards ear­lier this year.

On the other hand, Big Nuz is also a trio hail­ing from Dur­ban in South Africa’s KZN prov­ince.
