Shinso shines at The Lounge’s 5th anniversary
THE Lounge Pub on Saturday celebrated its fifth anniversary in the entertainment business with a thrilling performance from Shinsoman who launched his latest album Mandigonera.
The celebrations kicked off with in-house DJs entertaining patrons. Normally the joint charges $3 door entrance but on Saturday the charges were increased to $5. Revellers were however, not short-changed as Baba Devante, as Shinso is affectionately known, kept the crowd on their feet.
The sizeable crowd danced to his music with others singing along to his popular tracks such as Handikendenge, Mawaya Waya and Ndakupenga. The dance floor proved to be small as the club’s bouncers were kept busy trying to keep the fans from disturbing Shinsoman on stage. As promised, Shinso gave away free CDs to lucky revellers while unveiling the new offering.
Before his performance, patrons were entertained by DJs Slamma, J-Za, Marcus Andro, Keezy and Kananjo who showed their prowess on the decks. Although the DJs were versatile, some patrons pleaded with them to play songs off man of the moment – Jah Prayzah’s new album.
As a result, the DJs took time to interact with revellers and introduced a dancing competition where winners walked away with T-shirts engraved with the Pub’s celebration message.
Only females took part in the dancing competition as males declined to take to the stage. While revellers were visibly enjoying, the pub’s owners popped champagne and cut a cake to mark the fifth anniversary commemorations — @nqotshili.
