POP classic quartet Kingdom Classics, last Friday, rose to the occasion of Independence commemorations, delivering another vintage performance at Maseru Sun Cabanas.
In its fourth edition, the annual show, is meant to showcase the best of pop classic Lesotho has to offer while also celebrating the Mountain Kingdom’s independence.
And what better time to enjoy the delectable sounds of the celebrated group than with family and friends while sharing the special moment.
Kingdom Classics’ drawing power was once again apparent with the Cabanas hall full to the rafters despite fears of political instability that have blighted other shows of late.
Kingdom Classics, which was formed in 2009, comprises of Teboho Mothobi, Tuoe Hants’i, Mojai Madras and Motebang Koneshe.
This time around the show incorporated the comic relief of local kings of comedy, Lilaphalapha, leaving the audience in stitches in between Kingdom Classics performances.
Just by appearing on the stage, Lilaphalapha had the crowd bursting into laughter, which was made all the more rapturous by their imitation of the quartet that had just left the stage. The comedy troupe went on to crack jokes, mostly about the current political events, much to the delight of the adoring crowd.
As they staged scenes from Lilaphalapha 1 and 2, the group urged the audience to support local, rather than foreign acts adding that Basotho are also capable of providing top notch entertainment.
Meanwhile, on the same night and far removed from the laid back setting at Maseru Sun, revelers were dancing the night away at entertainment hub 4Fordy in Khubetsoana.
Local House heavyweights Mekonko, Thoxie, Ebonix and Untitled DJ took on South African House producer, mixer and Metro FM anchor Glen Lewis behind the decks.
The local contingent held their own in the show, while Glen Lewis belted out a fresh set unlike his previous performance. It took a connoisseur of House music to follow the tracks in his two-hour set, proving that he is still a cut above the rest when it comes to house music.
