Kekana lined up for old school show
LOVERS of old school music are in for treat when yesteryear South African music greats descend on Maseru for the Waar Was Jy (loosely translated to mean ‘Where were you’) concert at the Victoria Hotel Poolside on 23 December.
Music legends Steve Kekana, Zizi Kongo, Condry Ziqubu, Johnny Mokhali and CJB will headline the event hosted by entertainment group, Stone Sound which is aimed taking the old timers down memory lane while showing the younger generation how their forebears used to party during their halcyon years.
Kekana who is no stranger to the country wowed the townships in Apartheid-era South Africa with an eclectic mix of hits such as Shine On, Take Your Love And Keep It and collaborated with Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabuse on the mega dance anthem Burn Out.
Songstress Kongo is best known for the catchy Come Duze while Ziqubu’s biggest hit was Skorokoro.
CJB’S classic Tonight I Need Somebody re- mains a favourite on jukebox machines while Johnny Mokhali is best known for the track Lerato la Batho ba babeli.
Stone Sound boss, DJ Counter Force this week told the Weekender that, “as much as older people prefer to always be working hard, they also need to refresh and if one looks at the entertainment scene they are left out of the circle”.
He said he had a good appreciation “of this music and I realised that it is the type of music that never goes of style”.
He said he had also gained experience in hosting such shows alongside his compatriots DJ Tseko and businessman Leuta Leuta under their company Lestoku.
“We have been hosting such shows as Lestoku during the winter months using an indoor venue which could not accommodate many people but this edition which came after strong requests will be an outdoor event to accommodate everyone”.
He said Kekana would continue to visit the country as he had several albums and is the most appreciated by the local market”.
