The main event will be held by the pool, with rev­ellers set to be doused in “5k colours” paint which is eas­ily wash­able and made from food­grade corn starch. Later on, they will be given glow sticks, glow glasses, neon sticks, glow wrist­bands and cups to spice up the event

It will fea­ture the tal­ents of motswako’s Khuli chana, Zeus, Dun­can, Lec­tion, Towdeemac, Khosi­mowa, Adrianto, DJ Khenzo, mr massie, DJ Zondi and DJ Tira. The lo­cal con­tin­gent will con­sist of L-tore, Juvy, St­lofa, Hally, Skebz D, Nirex, Axo mind, queen mo, Sadon, mr BeeKay, T-mech, Blaze, Silent Fate, Peele Feela, Thi­zozo, Da Starr and Dal­las T.

motswako In­va­sion con­sists of Batswana and South African artists singing in Setswana and Se­sotho who have been tour­ing the two coun­tries. Ac­cord­ing to Spring mad­ness or­gan­iser, Dal­las T, the motswako In­va­sion was ea­ger to per­form in Le­sotho.

“Since we started Spring mad­ness two years ago, motswako In­va­sion, which is a team of prom­i­nent mcs, has been cre­at­ing a lot of buzz around Botswana and South Africa,” he said.

“They have al­ways wanted to come to Le­sotho as a team, and this has only been pos­si­ble now. motswako In­va­sion nor­mally per­forms over three days, but they can­not all be here as cassper Ny­ovest will be per­form­ing in Jo­han­nes­burg on the same day and also sup­ported by HHP.”

Dal­las T said the event was also meant to give lo­cal artists the op­por­tu­nity to per­form along­side for­eign acts and share ideas for their de­vel­op­ment.

“Spring mad­ness is mainly aimed at giv­ing lo­cal acts the plat­form to spread their wings by shar­ing the stage with artists who have ac­tu­ally made it in the en­ter­tain­ment industry,” he said.

“It will also serve as a plat­form for net­work­ing and cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for col­lab­o­ra­tions which will fos­ter the de­vel­op­ment of lo­cal artists.”

MOTSWAKO’S Dun­can will per­form at Vic­to­ria Pool­side in Maseru.
