MASERU — Lesotho dancehall and hip hop music kings set Meloling Club on fire when they delivered a scintillating performance during a collaborative show last Thursday.
Dozens of revellers flocked to the venue to show their appreciation for the two musical genres.
DJ Ang-ca, who was on the turn-tables, mixed and blended hip hop and dancehall hits forcing merrymakers to get to the dance floor.
It was indeed a night to remember.
The game was taken to another level when Kommanda Obbs, Sledge, Blitz, Sabhat, Black Moss, and Ragger Beast took to the stage with an outstanding performance that left the crowd shouting for more.
Ladies refused to be outdone as they made their way to the dance floor where they danced until the wee hours of the morning.
According to Tesfah “Selector T” Selassie of the Dancehall Shockers Entertainment crew, the show was a success beyond their wildest dreams.
“I am very impressed by the turn-up. It shows that there is now understanding as to where we are coming from and where we are going regarding dancehall and hip hop music,” he told the Weekender.
He added: “I just wish all our fans who gathered today to support us could go out there and spread the word about the quality of our locally-produced dancehall and hip hop music because they are our ambassadors.”
Kommanda Obbs also told the Weekender that he was grateful for the fans’ support.
“The way people have come in large numbers to support us proves that we have won many souls who love and appreciate our music, which is our main focus in this industry because we do it for the people. I am so grateful,” he said.
Tumisang Sledge Mphi said the event had been their most successful since they started hosting the Thursday dancehall sessions last year.
“The success of the show is keeping us on our toes because it shows that people are now getting the message in our music,” Sledge said.
One of the revellers, Pulleng Lepole, said the event was amazing.
“This was an amazing event and I really had the best Thursday night ever. I do not regret coming here and I wish I could do this every Thursday night,” Lepole said.
