Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

LI­LAPHA­LAPHA Pro­duc­tions is set to tickle com­edy lovers’ funny bone at the Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre of the Free State (PA­COFS) in Bloem­fontein, South Africa next Wed­nes­day.

Ac­cord­ing to Li­lapha­lapha Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Bofihla Neko, the per­for­mance would be the com­edy troupe’s first out­side Le­sotho, adding that they ec­static about the op­por­tu­nity.

“We have never per­formed in South Africa be­fore, so we feel greatly hon­oured by PA­COFS’S re­quest for us to show­case our craft,” he said.

“While we al­ready know that we have a large fan base in Le­sotho and other coun­tries, be­ing recog­nised and booked by a body as pres­ti­gious and big as PA­COFS means we are go­ing in the right di­rec­tion.

“We be­lieve that now is the time to put Le­sotho’s com­edy on the global map and we are de­ter­mined to achieve that ob­jec­tive.”

Asked when the fourth in­stall­ment of their pop­u­lar Li­lapha­lapha would be re­leased, Neko said it was too early to tell since it was still in the works.

He added that plans were afoot for a “mas­sive” show next March fea­tur­ing co­me­di­ans from Le­sotho and be­yond.
