Cash­time brings the house down

Lesotho Times - - Weekender - Mo­halenyane Phakela

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.”
