Mekonko Sundays take a spin
RENOWNED disc spinner, DJ Mekonko, who hosts the show Mekonko Sundays at 4Fordy every Sunday, will add a bit of flavour to this week’s session by featuring BMW spin masters.
Since August last year, deep and soulful House music lovers have been treated to DJ Mekonko and company’s weekly Sunday sessions at the Khubetsoana-based entertainment hotspot.
The sessions have generated interest from those keen on wrapping up the weekend on a laid back note.
Dubbed “Clash of the Heavyweights”, this Sunday’s show will be teeming with deep soulful house jams and Lounge music with the likes of Harris T, Daverts, Tshepzadj, Kopper, Sir Schaba and Mekonko himself billed to perform.
The first “Clash of the Heavyweights” was held in last December with the intention of holding the show every 12 months. According to due DJ Mekonko, the second edition will be held before the scheduled time due to public demand.
“Clash of the Heavyweights was meant to be held every December but due to pressure from revelers who were too impatient to wait for the second round in December, I had to ensure they got served,” said DJ Mekonko.
“The first event saw an unexpected horde of House lovers fill the 4Fordy complex, DLM, and reluctantly leaving in the early hours of Monday at around 4am, as if they were not going to go to work.”
He said the event will cater for both house lovers and adrenaline junkies.
“It has been a while since we had a drifting show, so we will have our local Gusheshe (BMW 318 to 325 old models) drifters showcase a couple of stunts to kick start the show,” DJ Mekonko said.
“They will start off as a convoy from town before making their way to the Khubetsoana-based complex where everything will go down.”
The Teyateyaneng-born disc spinner added that this time around it will be a local affair. In the inaugural edition, South Africa’s T-Deep, Mr Spike, Razor Minora and All Star lined up against Lesotho’s Thoxie, Sir Schaba, Harris T, Tshepzadj and Kopper.
“The premise of the previous event was to show Basotho that local deejays can take on South African superstars as they were able to match the performances of the likes of Metro FM’s T-Deep,” he said. “This time, it is all about appreciating the best that Lesotho has to offer rather than promoting foreign acts.”
