Cashtime brings the house down
SOUTH Africa’s Cashtime crew set Maseru Club ablaze on Saturday with an energetic show that left revellers spellbound during the inaugural Memories of Right Now (MORN) festival.
The event was a collaboration between local entertainment outfits, Big Events (Kopper), Mekonko Sound Hire, Individual Max and Hard Liquor. The organisers also teamed up with Vodacom Lesotho, whose Vodacom Superstars 2015 talent search competition winners, male deejay category winner DJ Vesta, female DJ category winner DJ Linah and music category winner L-tore, were also part of the line-up. The telecommunications giant also added to the lineup Metro FM and Channel O DJ, Shimza.
The festival had been eagerly awaited since it was the first time all the members of the much vaunted Cashtime crew were performing in Lesotho. The six-member group consists of KO, Kid X, DJ Vigilante, MA-E, Maggs and Mozlie.
As one of the most trending groups from South Africa, the Cashtime crew did not disappoint during their performance, with riveting performances that left the crowd, most of which was conspicuously dressed in white, asking for more.
not to be outdone, local artists also acquitted themselves well with the likes of Juvy, Blaze Shutta Queen, OGM, T-mech, Trojan, El’ Alsa, A Supreme, Razor Minora, Ebonix, Pablodj, Tshepzadj, Sir Schaba, Kopano the First, Ouzysoul, Afrodj, Hally, Thabbie, Smooth, Boots, Napolenah, Hunky D, Monyase DJ, Harris T and Jiji F giving it their all.
In an interview with the Weekender soon after performing their popular duet, Animale, Jiji F and nirex lauded the MORN festival for affording them the opportunity to showcase their talents.
“I am so much grateful for this opportunity as it is not often that we get to share the stage with top artists such as the Cashtime crew and perform to such a big audience,” nirex said.
“Big shout out to the organisers and it was also humbling to see all the people who responded positively to our performances. The performance also enabled us to show the people that I am not beefing with Jiji F as has been previously claimed.”
Jiji F also chipped in saying that even though he had shared the stage with the Cashtime crew before, it was an opportunity to be savoured.
“I have shared the stage with the six members of Cashtime on separate occasions and this is the first time they were all together in Lesotho with me sharing it with them,” he said.
“I am grateful to the organisers for entrusting me with the opportunity of performing in front of all these people and I enjoyed watching revellers singing along to my songs.”
