DJ Mer­lon fails to pitch up for show

Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

THE much an­tic­i­pated de­but Maseru per­for­mance by South African disc spin­ner, DJ Mer­lon, last Thurs­day was not to be as the Kose Kuse hit-maker did not pitch up.

En­ter­tain­ment out­fit, Kuna Sounds, had billed DJ Mer­lon to rock Times Café for the first time with posters pro­mot­ing the show lining up the streets.

How­ever, much to the dis­may of revellers, DJ Mer­lon’s name was re­moved on the show’s Face­book pro­mo­tional page the night be­fore the event and only leav­ing the lo­cal artists who were also lined up to per­form. The ad­mis­sion fee, which was ini­tially pegged at M80, was also changed to free.

Con­tacted for com­ment, Kuna Sounds boss DJ Tseko was eva­sive, say­ing he did not give in­ter­views to news­pa­pers.

“I have noth­ing to say to you since you al­ways write non­sense about me. In fact, I do not like news­pa­per ar­ti­cles be­cause, in­stead of giv­ing me good cov­er­age, they tar­nish my rep­u­ta­tion,” DJ Tseko said.

At­tempts to reach DJ Mer­lon were fruit­less, with the Week­ender only man­ag­ing to get in touch his book­ing agent, S’bu­siso, who said they had no for­mal ar­range­ment with Kuna Sounds.

“We have not yet reached any for­mal agree­ment with the Le­sotho or­gan­is­ers, so we are not at lib­erty to com­ment on whether DJ Mer­lon will be in Maseru or not at the mo­ment,” said Sibu­siso.

The 28-year-old DJ Mer­lon spe­cialises in House mu­sic and has worked with prom­i­nent names in the busi­ness such as Zakes Bantwini, Lvovo Der­rango, DJ Ter­rence, Mo­neoa and DJ Tira.

He rose to fame fol­low­ing the re­lease of Kose Kuse which be­came a club an­them in both South Africa and Le­sotho.
