A show to re­mem­ber ...

Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

THE Ozone Club in Hlotse came alive on Fri­day with scin­til­lat­ing per­for­mances from Lesedi FM pre­sen­ters along­side other South African and lo­cal artists.

The ra­dio pre­sen­ters were in Le­sotho for live broad­casts from Ma­hobong in Leribe ear­lier in the day be­fore mov­ing to the pop­u­lar club for a Warm Up party with their fans. Ba2­cada, Twasa, Skuz­abell, DJ Lovers, DJ KG all put up as­sured per­for­mances along with rap­pers Maraza and Zikota. They were ably sup­ported by lo­cal acts that in­cluded the likes of Kom­manda Obbs, Jcob, Juvy, Har­ris T, Tshep­zadj, DJ Tseko, Vesta and Afro DJ.

Ba2­cada, Twasa and Skuz­abell took turns on the mi­cro­phone and dance floor while DJS Lovers and KG en­sured that the chilly breeze was not felt by rev­ellers who danced the night away. Lo­cal DJS Har­ris T and Tshep­zadj played a va­ri­ety of House tunes, from the clas­sic jams to the re­cent deep tracks.

On a night of top notch per­for­mances, lo­cal acts ap­peared to out­shine the vis­i­tors as they kept rev­ellers on the edge of the stage with their sing-along mu­sic which in­cluded Kom­manda Obbs’ Tau E Rora, Jcob’s Ke Teng and Juvy’s Skipa Se Ntekane. Jcob had the crowd eat­ing out of his hands with hits like Kea Pusha, Hake Sbaye and Hanyane and many found it hard to be­lieve that the ac­com­plished artiste grew up and launched his ca­reer in Le­sotho.

The au­di­ence how­ever seemed to find it hard to re­late to the Zulu lyrics of South African rap­pers Maraza and Zikota. Nev­er­the­less, Zikota thanked the crowd for tak­ing time to lis­ten to their mu­sic as it was his first time in Le­sotho.

“I drove all the way from Jo­han­nes­burg to come and give you a taste of what we do and I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the re­sponse and sup­port you showed tonight. I would love to see you again, thank you Le­sotho,” he said.

Ba2­cada took the op­por­tu­nity to dis­miss al­le­ga­tions made on so­cial me­dia that he and Kom­manda Obbs were fight­ing over the Tšepe Move­ment.

“Ru­mours have been spread on Twit­ter and Face­book that we are no longer at peace with Kom­manda Obbs fight­ing over who started the Tšepe Move­ment. Well, let me set the record straight, Kom­manda is a dawg (af­fil­i­ate) and we have never stopped be­ing bud­dies,” Ba2­cada said.

“He is the real pi­o­neer of Tšepe and is still rel­e­vant. He is the one who paved the way for the likes of Jcob who are do­ing well in the genre to­day.”

The party went on till the early hours of Satur­day morn­ing with the po­lice on hand to en­sure or­der.
