Lesotho Times - - Entertainment - Mo­halenyane Phakela

MASERU’S Kingsway thor­ough­fare was brought to a stand­still on Satur­day, as car spin­ners and drifters cel­e­brated the wed­ding of one of their own; Lithebe Tlali.

Tlali mar­ried his sweet­heart Paula Wesi, who is now Matšepo Tlali, in a colour­ful cer­e­mony held at Ro­man Catholic Church cathe­dral in Maseru.

Af­ter the cer­e­mony, the 1990s BMW 3-se­ries cars called Gusheshe for the sound their en­gines make when they are revved lead the wed­ding con­voy to Maseru Club where the re­cep­tion was held.

The drifters would oc­ca­sion­ally stop the con­voy for spin­ning shows that would draw the at­ten­tion of hordes of on­look­ers.

Tlali told the Week­ender on the side­lines of the fes­tiv­i­ties, a drift show was a ne­ces­sity at his wed­ding be­cause the adren­a­line pas­time was his hobby.

“The wed­ding cel­e­bra­tions would not be com­plete without the drift show as I con­sider that to be part of my life and I am grate­ful for the team that came to show sup­port through their per­for­mances in this cold weather,” he said.

LITHEBE tlali and Paula Wesi's wed­ding brought Kingsway road to stand­still as drifters per­fomed to com­mem­o­rate their union last Satur­day.
