Sunday Express - - XPRESS PEOPLE - Mo­halenyane Phakela

NEW kid on the en­ter­tain­ment block, Gift Givens Pro­duc­tions, is set to launch op­er­a­tions with a bang by host­ing a party event on Satur­day meant to unite youths and break so­cial bar­ri­ers at the Mu­sic Man­sion in Maseru West.

Dubbed Red­cup Hang­out, the bash will fea­ture a vast ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing sumo wrestling, red car­pet walk, foam ma­chine, ping pong, wa­ter guns, mini pools, play sta­tion ar­cade cen­tre, jump­ing bags, wa­ter slides and old school games.

Ac­cord­ing to the event’s or­gan­iser, Re­filoe Mokuoane, Red­cup Hang­out will af­ford young peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to min­gle and cre­ate new friend net­works. He said all those at­tend­ing the event will hold a red cup as a sym­bol of equal­ity.

“Red­cup Hang­out is all about the free­dom to party and stand to­gether as well as break­ing so­cial bar­ri­ers, it will forge con­nec­tions with new friends while reaf­firm­ing old ones,” Mokuoane said.

He added that upon ar­rival, each guest will be given a free Amer­i­can orig­i­nal red cup from which they will drink the bev­er­ages that take their fancy. Mokuoane said the idea be­hind drink­ing from the same cups was to make ev­ery­one feel like they are part of some­thing much larger than them­selves.

At­ten­dees will then walk on the red car­pet to have their pic­ture taken which will be up­loaded on the so­cial net­work­ing site Instagram be­fore en­gag­ing in ac­tiv­i­ties of their choice.

“A pro­jec­tor will be show­ing the pic­tures of all the guests who walked on the red car­pet and par­tic­i­pated in the ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer,” he said.

“To spice things up, there will also be a pow­der paint splash and glow in the dark body paints spread on guests to give the party a wild feel un­der ul­tra-vi­o­let light­ing.”

Mokuoane added that the ex­clu­sion of for­eign per­form­ers was de­lib­er­ate as they were keen on prov­ing that an event can be suc­cess­ful with­out them.

“We want to set new stan­dards and break the long held myth that for an event to be out­stand­ing it has to in­volve for­eign artistes when we have lo­cal per­form­ers who can de­liver,” he said.

“This time we will fo­cus on up­com- ing dee­jays and those mostly be­hind the scenes. The line-up will be a sur­prise.”

Mokuoane said the fre­quency of Red­cup Hang­out would de­pend on revellers’ re- sponse.

“Apart from that, we are al­ready plan­ning an ex­cit­ing win­ter show in a to­tally dif­fer­ent set­ting,” he said.

Sumo wrestling will is among the ac­tiv­i­ties lined up at the Red­cup Hang­out.
