Stars galore at SK birthday bash
POPULAR South African acts including award-winning rapper Reason, DJ Shimza, DJ Capital, Stone Candi and Snow Deep will on Saturday light up the newly-established Mambo’s entertainment joint at Pioneer Mall to celebrate Sekonyela “SK” Matamane’s 30th birthday.
They will perform alongside local acts such as Charma Exzit, Kopper, Tshepzadj, Thoxie, Afro DJ, Trybz, Sir Nic, Lady Dee, Smooth, Box Fr3sh, Kaytee Fresh, Trojan Van De House, NINE24, Juvy, DJ Bootz and Kally Kome.
The event has been dubbed the ‘Scorpio Knight’ and SK, who is better known for his role as the Senior Marketing Specialist at Vodacom Lesotho, will be joined in the birthday celebrations by other people who were also born under the Scorpio star sign from October 24 to November 22.
The event will be staged in collaboration with entertainment outfit, Jam Sessions Sound.
“I have always celebrated my birthdays with intimate parties and I felt being 30 means I have to look back over the past years and the challenges that I overcame hence an event of this kind,” SK said in an interview with the Weekender this week.
He said he had decided the event should also be about people born during this period because “they are said to be strong, commanding, intense, passionate and zealous fighters who impact positively on other people’s lives”.
“However the event is open to everyone who is up for a good night of House and Hip Hop sounds.
“The lineup is made up of local acts currently making waves in the entertainment scene as well as their counterparts from South Africa.”
He said the event was also aimed at introducing Scorpio Knight as a brand “which seeks to make an impact on the entertainment scene,” adding they were strategising and would shortly be announcing how they planned to conduct their business.
