Strip show for Fa­ther’s Day

Lesotho Times - - Weekender - Mo­halenyane Phakela

AS Fa­ther’s Day draws near, Sun In­ter­na­tional Le­sotho has lined up a strip show to spice up the com­mem­o­ra­tions on 20 June at Le­sotho Sun Ho­tel.

Dubbed “Men’s Night Out With John­nie Walker”, it fol­lows in the heels of a sim­i­lar show spe­cially de­signed for the ladies on 9 May 2015. The ladies were treated to the an­tics of Pulse Dancers, a Johannesburg-based troupe of­ten re­ferred to as the Chip­pen­dales of Africa. The all-male re­vue fea­tured top­less or bot­tom­less wait­ers in a chore­ographed strip show and podium dances.

And much like last month’s show, the event will be held on the eve of the com­mem­o­ra­tions and will fea­ture fe­male en­ter­tain­ers.

Ac­cord­ing to Sun In­ter­na­tional Mar­ket­ing Man­ager Re­filoe Mohlot­sane, the show will be cater­ing for the men, as the ladies had their show last month.

“Since we asked the men to let their women come and have a night out on their own af­ter promis­ing them they would also be catered for, it is now their turn,” Mohlot­sane said in an in­ter­view with the Week­ender this week.

“The two shows are a bit dif­fer­ent as the pre­vi­ous one was meant for younger women since strip­ping is re­garded as taboo among older women.

“The up­com­ing show will cater for all men, so we are ex­pect­ing the hall to be filled up to the rafters. The ladies night was fun but I think the up­com­ing one will be even bet­ter.”

She added that the ho­tel group was mulling hold­ing the strip shows on a quar­terly ba­sis ow­ing to the pos­i­tive re­sponse they had re­ceived.

How­ever, Mohlot­sane said the shows would be held un­der dif­fer­ent themes.

She also noted that Sun In­ter­na­tional man­age­ment had been made aware of the leak­age of a photo dur­ing last month’s show that went vi­ral and pub­lished in a weekly news­pa­per.

Mohlot­sane as­sured rev­ellers that a strict media pol­icy would be en­forced this time around to guar­an­tee their pri­vacy.

“We put our cus­tomers’ needs be­fore ev­ery­thing else and are very sorry for the of­fence the leak­age caused,” she said.

“We will be strict this time, and no one will be al­lowed to take pic­tures. Even the media will be given strict guide­lines on which pic­tures to take, such as only tak­ing the pic­tures of those on the stage along­side the strip­pers.

“A pic­ture will only be pub­lished with the con­sent of the con­cerned per­son af­ter an ex­pla­na­tion of what it will be used for so that we keep our clien­tele happy.”

DJ Hally will once again en­ter­tain the crowd be­hind the decks, while ad­mis­sion for the show is M200. The amount will also pay for a braai meal and a dou­ble tot of John­nie Walker Scotch whisky rev­ellers will tuck into dur­ing the show.

Fa­ther’s Day com­mem­o­ra­tions at Le­sotho sun will fea­ture fe­male en­ter­tain­ers.
