THE southern region of Lesotho will be set ablaze by an array of deejays with two bashes, Winter Warmer and Battle of the South Kings, lined up for May 30 and 31.
Winter Warmer will be held at Orange River Hotel in Quthing to keep revellers entertained despite the bitter cold enveloping the country.
On the 31st, the crew will travel to Hotel Mount Maluti in Mohale’s Hoek to host Battle of the South Kings; the second phase of the jam-packed weekend.
The collaboration is an initiative by deejays from the southern region, namely Mafeteng, Mohale’s Hoek and Quthing districts, to foster unity among themselves.
“There usually exist disputes among local disc spinners, especially if they do not reside within the same vicinity, or do not share the same sentiments so we just want to create that togetherness as deejays of the South side,” Bahlakoana “DJ De Tail” Mohatla told the Weekender in an interview this week.
The contingent from Mafeteng will consist of Monyase DJ, Chixx and Gerrison, from Mohale’s Hoek; Bamboo, Bhudzela and De Tail while Quthing will be represented by Stoan, Neo and Budda.
“We are also trying to develop the entertainment scene in these three districts and, hopefully, we will continue to host shows of this nature, oreven better, on a regular basis,” DJ De Tail said.
“We normally had events every month-end at Hotel Mount Maluti, where I have been playing as the resident deejay, so we are trying to branch out to other districts and be united as artists of this region.
“We hope to see revelers from other districts, especially those that can access our venues, to join us and have a taste of the ‘South portion’,” he added.
DJ De Tail further revealed that, through such events, they will afford a platform for upcoming artistes so that they can showcase what they have to offer.
“If we are able to give our upcoming deejays the chance for them to be known by the public in the South, it will be easier for them to foray into bigger national shows since they would have gained the experience and confidence to face any crowd,” DJ De Tail said.
