Lulo Cafe promises fireworks

MASERU — South African disc jockey, Lulo Cafe, has promised fireworks when he performs at the Maseru Festival at Bambatha Tsita Sporting Arena next Saturday.

He told journalists at a press conference in Maseru on Monday that he was very excited to have been contracted to entertain Basotho during the show.

“I have a huge fan base in Lesotho and it’s always a pleasure for me come and perform here,” DJ Lulo Cafe said.

He added: “My presence here today is to prove that I will be at Bambatha alongside all the artistes lined-up for the event and I promise fireworks for my fans during the two-hour set I have been contracted for.”

The festival line-up boasts South Africans, Mandla Spikiri, Alaska, Thebe, Lulo Cafe, DJ Cndo and Bonang Matheba.

They will perform alongside local artistes Stlofa, Damario, K-tha, DJ Bootz, DJ Counter Force, Fabric and DJ Khebza.

The festival, which is organised by Global Events, is aimed at encouraging collaboration between local and South African artistes.

“The event is not about making money but about creating a platform for local artistes to expand their talent into other countries starting with South Africa,” Tseka Mokoena, the marketing director of Global Events, said.

He added that the event would bring together more than 20 artistes in one venue providing South African artistes an opportunity to identify local talent and plan collaborations.

Trevor Madondo, of Flowa Media, a South African digital agency, said the partnership with Global Events is a journey towards building relations with other African countries.

“We are bringing big guys from South Africa into Lesotho not only to entertain but to uplift the local arts and cultural sector.

“The festival is bringing high quality technology with the best sound so that we set a trend. We want the event to be the talk of the town the next day so all that we have promised will be delivered,” Madondo said.

He added that the South African artistes would be doing interviews to promote the event.

“We had planned to have two local artistes featured on Live (a music show aired on SABC 1) but because of negative publicity the plan has been affected.”

Madondo said they were still negotiating with SABC to feature the artistes next week.

Local artistes who will take part in the festival would get an opportunity to travel and perform at road shows in Sadc countries.

“We aim to grow the arts industry of Lesotho and beyond so this is just the start of bigger things,” Mokoena said, adding that six more events would be held in the country.
