Major League ignites Cuban Linx
THE South Africa duo, Major League, gave left its audience at Cuban Linx (CLX) asking for more after an hour-long set at the Living it Up event on Friday evening.
Although, the twins’ set was almost derailed by technical glitches, the audience appeared not to care and danced the night away.
The event was a collaboration between CLX and Maluti Mountain Brewery (MMB).
With the Amapiano sound track, Baby Are you Coming, which is currently one of the biggest hits in South Africa at the moment, the twins got the crowd grooving on the dance floor with some pushing and shoving to get closer to the stars.
The two however, left immediately after their performance leaving local DJs to take over.
Born Banele and Bandile Mbere, Major League DJs are arguably the most popular twins in the South African music industry, being one of the pioneering groups of the currently trending New Age Kwaito.
Their popularity took off when they released The Bizness with their compatriots, Cassper Nyovest and Riky Rick in 2013. From then, it has been smooth sailing. They went on to release Slyza Tsotsi, Zulu Girls, Do Better and Sgetit which all received fair attention.
However, they have recently accelerated their popularity with their recent releases such as Uthando, 19 Tobetsa and Family, a collaboration with Kwesta and Kid X. Their songs can easily be identified through the punchline, “Oh God its Major League”, at the beginning of each track.
Their previous performance in Lesotho was during the last edition of the Vodacom Summer Feva in 2016 when they had the entire audience eating off the palms of their hands as they played one hit after the other.
The event was organised by CLX management in collaboration with Maluti Mountain Brewery (MMB).
Phoka Lithebe, who is one of the organisers of the event, told the Weekender that they have been preparing for the event since last year and they are happy it finally happened.
He said the event was partly a birthday celebration for one of Cuban Linx’s founding members so they thought it was befitting to host a bigger event in collaboration MMB.
“Living it Up is partly a birthday celebration of one of the founding members of Cuban Linx so, we took the opportunity to bring MMB into the fold and make it a celebration for everyone,” Phoka said.
“Our sponsors MMB were pleased with the outcome and that is vital for CLX. We want our customers and our sponsors to be proud of associating with.”
He said he was also impressed with the performance of the DJs who were on the line-up as they all managed to keep the crowd entertained throughout the night.
