Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Worldwide - Bon­gani Ndlovu

RE­LAXED hav­ing an ice cold drink, lis­ten­ing to good mu­sic in an open space is the ideal thing to be do­ing this sear­ing sum­mer and to­day’s Cas­tle Lite Block Party in Bu­l­awayo is un­de­ni­ably the place to be.

The space along 8th Av­enue, be­tween Fife Street and Ja­son Moyo has been cor­doned off to ac­com­mo­date party go­ers who will be en­ter­tained by co­me­dian Babongile Sikhon­jwa, Cal_Vin, Re­verb 7 and top DJs, Liz, Mzoe, Kead Wikead, Crazy Black and Miss Pam.

Ice cold Cas­tle Lite 440ml lagers will be sold for $1 each at the event which is free of charge.

At­ten­tion will not be on the stage and drinks alone as a num­ber of ‘Ex­tra Cold’ ac­tiv­i­ties lined up in­clude the new Cas­tle Lite Un­locker Chal­lenge, the Ex­tra Cold Chal­lenge Units and Ex­tra Cold Photo Booth.

How­ever, ac­cess to the event will not be per­mit­ted to per­sons un­der the age of 18 years.

“As one of the strin­gent safety mea­sures in line with in­ter­na­tional best prac­tice at events, event-go­ers will not be per­mit­ted to bring onto the site any bot­tles, or any other bev­er­age con­tain­ers, nar­cotics, weapons, glass, or any other con­tra­band ma­te­ri­als. Screen­ing mea­sures will be in place to en­force this re­quire­ment,” said Delta Bev­er­ages mar­ket­ing man­ager, Pa­tri­cia Mu­ram­binda.

Cal_Vin, af­fec­tion­ately known as that Lu­veve Boy said he was ready to rock the stage.

“I’ve been re­hears­ing hard for the Cas­tle Lite Block Party. I’ll per­form some of my new mu­sic and mix it with the pop­u­lar tracks. Peo­ple should come through to have a good time,” said Cal_Vin.

“I’d like to thank Delta Bev­er­ages for or­gan­is­ing the Block Party and af­ford­ing us a chance to show­case our tal­ent.”

DJ Mzoe, a vet­eran in the in­dus­try said he was ea­ger to per­form in front of a large crowd.

“On the dance floor peo­ple will be danc­ing and I’ll be con­tribut­ing my bit to mak­ing peo­ple drink as many Cas­tle Lites as pos­si­ble with non-stop ac­tion from the decks,” said DJ Mzoe.

Fast-ris­ing fe­male DJ Liz said she would be tak­ing re­quests for songs be­fore her set to­day.

“If peo­ple have spe­cific tracks they want to hear, they can let me know on my Face­book page. It’s a street bash so most def­i­nitely, I want to keep peo­ple danc­ing till the next day.

“I’ll be go­ing hard with com­mer­cial mu­sic and will def­i­nitely add new lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional tracks,” said DJ Liz.

An­other fe­male DJ, Miss Pam said: “It’s go­ing to be epic! Peo­ple will dance and en­joy like never be­fore.”

As im­bibers in Bu­l­awayo drink the day away, those in Harare will be busy on braai stands as they will be on a quest to break a record by braaing 10 tonnes of meat for char­ity. Also a Delta af­fair, the Cas­tle Lager Big­gest Braai Day will take place this af­ter­noon at Alexan­dra Sports Club.

Mu­ram­binda said, for ev­ery kilo­gramme of meat con­sumed, Cas­tle Lager will do­nate an equiv­a­lent amount that will be shared equally by Mpilo Cen­tral Hospi­tal in Bu­l­awayo and Harare Hospi­tal.

“We’re en­cour­ag­ing every­one to par­tic­i­pate in this wor­thy cause re­mem­ber­ing that for ev­ery glass of Cas­tle Lager raised, the cheer goes way beyond the beer to help our broth­ers and sis­ters who are hos­pi­talised,” said Mu­ram­binda.

En­ter­tain­ment will be pro­vided by gig­mas­ters — Oliver Mtukudzi, Am­mara Brown, Judge­ment Yard, Killer T, DJ Chuc­kno­sis, DJ Stavo and Doc Vikela.

For one to get ac­cess to the venue, they have to pay an en­trance fee of $5 that will guar­an­tee them a braai pack and 1L of Cas­tle Lager. — @bon­ganinkunzi
