Summa Feva is back!

Lesotho Times - - Weekender - Mo­halenyane Phakela

VODACOM’S Summa feva is back once again and is set to rock Set­soto Sta­dium to­mor­row.

Since its in­cep­tion seven years ago, Summa feva has be­come one of Le­sotho’s premier fes­ti­vals and an ea­gerly awaited event that sets the tone for the fes­tive sea­son en­ter­tain­ment.

The fes­ti­val is fa­mous for its im­pres­sive line-up of both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional acts, hence the mas­sive turnout of rev­ellers some of whom come from out­side the coun­try.

What also sets the Summa feva apart is its va­ri­ety of mu­sic gen­res—from old-school kwaito, house, Afro-jazz, hip-hop, the list is end­less.

The fes­ti­val nor­mally starts at around 4pm and con­tin­ues un­til the fol­low­ing morn­ing, and al­ways de­liv­ers an ex­pe­ri­ence of a lifetime, hence its rep­u­ta­tion as the ‘fes­ti­val of the year’.

This year, the Summa feva would fea­ture lo­cal heavy­weights such as El Que, St­lofa, L-tore, Nirex, Basali All­stars, Skebz D, Kop­per, Thoxie, Davertz, Jiji f, Kom­manda Obbs and D2AMAJOE, while South African artistes would in­clude Oskido, Black Mo­tion, Alaska, Khuli Chana, Eu­phonik, Dr Malinga, Cassper Ny­ovest, K.O, Nas­tee Nev, and for the first time in Le­sotho, Mscosmo, Rea­son, Shimza and Heavy K.

Born Non­qaba Nozuko Rwaxa in Soweto, Mscosmo is ar­guably South Africa’s hottest fe­male hip-hop DJ and VJ at the mo­ment. As the first and only fe­male DJ on Chan­nel O Bass­ment, Mscosmo has quickly made her mark on the con­ti­nent and gained re­spect in the hip-hop com­mu­nity for her un­doubted tal­ent.

On the other hand, Rea­son, who was born Sizwe Moeketsi in Tem­bisa, joined the hiphop in­dus­try at a ten­der age as a street­bat­tle-cat who also took part in nu­mer­ous com­pe­ti­tions. The Bump the Cheese Up! rap­per be­gan mak­ing head­lines when his sin­gle, Walk on Wa­ter be­came the sound-track of the movie Otelo Burn­ing and also be­ing fea­tured on nu­mer­ous Amer­i­can artists’ tours in South Africa.

Shimza and Heavy K are cur­rently a breath of fresh air to Msanzi’s house mu­sic scene.

Chan­nel o Bass­ment VJ Mscosmo makes her de­but ap­pear­ance at the Vodacom Summa Feva this year.

KOM­MANDA obbs (above) and l-tore will per­form at the Vodacom Summa Feva to­mor­row.
