Cloud Café show to shake off winter chills
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.
