Cloud Café show to shake off win­ter chills

Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

MASERU-BASED club Cloud Café is set to shake off the win­ter blues this Satur­day with a bash fea­tur­ing var­i­ous artistes from Le­sotho and South Africa.

The newly-opened club, which was for­merly called Li­tal­eng, will host “Win­ter Swagg”, which will show­case var­i­ous artis­tic gen­res to cater for dif­fer­ent tastes.

Ac­cord­ing to or­gan­iser, C-JO, the show is meant to en­cour­age revellers to keep up the mo­men­tum de­spite the on­set of win­ter. It will start off at 6pm with ad­mis­sion M50 per head.

“The event is premised on the need to get peo­ple out of their homes to see that we can still have fun and dis­re­gard the fact that it is cold,” said C-JO, who is also billed to per- form at the show.

“The other ob­jec­tive is to give ex­po­sure to the boun­ti­ful tal­ent we have in the coun­try. That is why we have tried to serve ev­ery­one’s in­ter­est by in­clud­ing po­etry and mu­sic of dif­fer­ent gen­res such as Hip Hop, Dance­hall, House and Jazz among oth­ers.”

He added that a bon­fire will be on hand at the show to keep the crowd warm, “although the per­for­mances will be so hot they will not need it”.

“We have teamed up with the best lo­cal tal­ent in the var­i­ous gen­res and also in­vited a few friends from South Africa to help pump up the show,” C-JO said.

The all-star lo­cal line-up will fea­ture rap­pers Choco­late Soul, Elkai, Juvy and MIP. On the Dance­hall front, Ragga Vybz and Shatta Kulca are ex­pected to bring the house down, while Ma­jisto’s Afro Jazz sounds and DJ Hally’s House round up the for­mi­da­ble troupe.

The South African con­tin­gent will con­sist of Sliq An­gel, Mlungu and Po­etry Shack.

Sliq An­gel is an Afro Pop singer hail­ing from the Eastern Cape prov­ince of South Africa. He joined the mu­sic in­dus­try in 2000 and has worked with a num­ber of artists in­clud­ing vo­cal­ist MXO. The high­light of his ca­reer was the re­lease of his al­bum Isizalo in 2010 which saw him per­form across South Africa and be­yond.

Sliq An­gel’s mu­sic is in­flu­enced with tra­di­tional love po­ems and he usu­ally uses metaphors in his lyrics. He de­scribes his sound as one that gives peo­ple hope, love and mo­ti­vates them to be­lieve there is al­ways a way out of dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions.
