Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

LO­CAL artists will once again in­vade South African shores this Satur­day in a show to be held in Lady­brand.

Dubbed Dytz Win­ter Tour, the show is be­ing or­gan­ised by lo­cal dance out­fit, Dy­na­mite Dance Crew, which is af­fec­tion­ately called Dytz by the group’s fans.

Ac­cord­ing to Dytz mem­ber Let­se­bang Mok­itimi the show, which will be held at T-zone Club, is meant to make in­roads into the SA en­ter­tain­ment scene. They also in­tend to launch the al­bum of re­cent signee, Prime Zeik, their ap­parel out­fit and to shoot Todd Jais­ton’s mu­sic video.

“We used to per­form in Lady­brand a while ago in var­i­ous shows and over the years built up a fol­low­ing there,” said Mok­itimi.

“We have been get­ting re­quests on so­cial media from peo­ple in Lady­brand to or­gan­ise a show that will serve them.

“We have in­vited lo­cal artists as well as dancers to not only sup­port us but have an op­por­tu­nity to pen­e­trate that mar­ket by shar­ing the stage with artistes from South Africa.”

The star-stud­ded list of lo­cal artists will in­clude Kay­tee Fresh, Moolah Sher­man, Black Ink, Lau­rel Dreams, Robocop, Kav and Muh­jestik. They will be shar­ing the stage with Mat­ter­lyjikz and Kid Chuck from Lady­brand.

Lo­cal pro­duc­ers and mu­si­cians T-mech and Cho­co­late Soul are also set to make spe­cial ap­pear­ances at the event while Dytz will bat­tle it out on the dance floor with Al­lian Fam from Johannesburg, Supremacy and VG Crew.

“Al­lian Fam saw our videos on Face­book, since we nor­mally upload them on that plat­form, and ex­pressed sur­prise to that level of tal­ent com­ing from Le­sotho and we hooked up with them,” said Mok­itimi.

“We be­lieve the event will af­ford us op­por­tu­ni­ties to net­work as we as­pire to fea­ture in the mu­sic videos of high pro­file South African artists or as a dance troupe dur­ing their per­for­mances.

“As lo­cal acts, we are all eye­ing the South African mar­ket as that is where artists can make a liv­ing from their tal­ent.”
