MASERU — South African award-winning hip hop star L-Tido is billed to perform at Litaleng Leisure Club tomorrow.
The songster featured the likes of South Africa’s hip hop giants Teargas, Tumi from Tumi and The Volume, Da L. E. S of Jozi and the Glitz Gang and Nigerian superstar Banky on his debut album All Or Nothing.
L-Tido will perform alongside locals L-Tore, Skebza D, Dunamis and Devfoe.
Behind the desks will be Djs Mekonko, Anca and Tseko.
The organiser of the show, Moruti Pitso told the Weekender L-Tido was chosen because of his freshness.
“L-Tido is young, fresh, vibrant and new in the market and looking at his work and music, he carries a lot of weight for a newcomer,” he said.
L-Tido is expected to hit the stage at 11:30 pm.
Pitso added, “This is our first big event after the chilly winter. We are simply welcoming the spring season in style.”
L-Tido is popular for his award-winning mix-tape City of Gold which sold over 4 000 units.
He also won the Most Gifted Newcomer award at the 2010 Channel O awards.
His debut album All or Nothing, released early this year, chronicles his journey to stardom.
Tomorrow night he is expected to blaze hits like We Rollin and It Aint My Fault from this album.
There are however fears that L-Tido might not make it for the Litaleng show.
This is because the hip hop star is billed to perform at Club 808’s (an e-TV Music Show) 1st birthday party at The Venue Melroso Arch in South Africa the same night.
A Club 808’s advert running on e-TV, a South African TV station, has been mentioning L-Tido as one of the artistes who will perform at the birthday bash.
But L-Tido’s manager Thabiso Khati told the Weekender the hip hop star will be in Maseru at 10:00 pm in time for his performance.
“L-Tido will be in Lesotho as he is booked on Friday.”
“Just like we have agreed with Lehobo, L-Tido will be on stage at 11:00 pm,” Khati said.
He said the We Rolling star is not booked to perform at Club 808’s birthday party but “will be interviewed at Club 808 on Friday”.
“The show is a pre-recorded programme, not a live broadcast.”
