REVELERS are in for a treat this month as the Sun International Lesotho group has an array of activities lined up for the festive season.

First off is the Poolside Summer Fun event which caters for all age groups and available every day. The pools are designed in such a way that they can accommodate children and adults depending on the depth. There will also be music on selected weekends in conjunction with the Ultimate Radio and entertainment outfit, LESTOKU.

Furthermore, Sun International Lesotho has partnered with LESTOKU to host a show called “Savanna Nights” every Friday and Saturday throughout the whole month at Maseru Sun Cabanas’ Mohobe Bar. Loads of prizes will be up for grabs as the deejays pump up the jams.

As if that is not enough, the hotel group has also lined up a Christmas Pool Party. Local deejays and rapper, Stlofa, will entertain the crowd along with South African artists billed to perform at Setsoto Stadium on the day. The hotel group’s entertainment offering will be wrapped up by a Family Day Lunch the following day in both hotels’ restaurants.

Meanwhile, LESTOKU has also organised a show set for Setsoto Stadium on Christmas day, which will feature the likes of South African musical giants Mi Casa, Mafikizolo and Big Nuz.

Mi Casa is a deep, soulful and jazzy house trio, based in Johannesburg, consisting of Dr Duda on production and piano, J’Something on quitar and vocal as well as Mo-T on the trumpet. The group was formed in 2011 under the South African Soul Candi Records with their debut album Micasa Music, which went gold, released in the same year. The group has since won a number of awards since 2012 owing to such hits as These Streets, Heavenly Sent and Jika.

Mafikizolo is an Afro-pop duo consisting of three time Best Duo/Group SAMA award winners Theo Khosinkwe and Nhlanhla Nciza. Initially, the group had three members. However, Tebza was killed after they released their sophomore album Sibongile. Theo and Nhlanhla took a two-year break after the release of Six Mabone and only came back last year with such hits as Khona and Happiness which landed them a number of SAMA awards earlier this year.

On the other hand, Big Nuz is also a trio hailing from Durban in South Africa’s KZN province. It consists of three members; Danger, Mashesha and Mapintsha who shot to fame in 2002, and made famous the now popular Durban-kwaito. They got their breakthrough when Afrotainment owner DJ Tira Signed them in 2007 culminating in the release of 2nd Round Knockout which topped the charts all over South Africa and sold over 20 000 copies. Among their standout hits include Umlilo, Hawaii and Inazo.
