The second annual Lesotho “All White” Party, is set to enliven this year’s festive season ambience with the much-anticipated The Hangover do set for tomorrow event at the ‘Manthabiseng Convention Centre Grounds in Maseru.
The event will this year be headlined by amongst others, South African girl-of-the-moment Ndivhudzannyi Ralivhona, better known by her stage name Makhadzi.
The song-bird from the Limpopo province who made a name for herself performing in small events, in the streets, taxi ranks and nameless night clubs has since turned into a renowned international performer of note and is slowly earning acclaim as the African Queen after her latest album.
And true to that name, he has had a chance to wow revellers from countries like Malawi, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Ghana, Nigeria and is certainly set to bring her magic to Maseru.
Organisers of the “All White” party – Big Events, powered by Maluti Mountain Brewery (MMB), also announced that the event will feature live performances from a line-up of SA artistes including award-winning songstress Shekinah, DJ Sumbody, Vetkuk and Mahoota along with several local favorites such as Double Trouble (Bootz and Dimmo), Juvy, Boobs, Monyase DJ, Frequency, Le Goody, Pablo Dj and Tribes.
The audience at the show is expected to wear only white outfit, from head to toe.
Makhadzi who is making waves as a singer, dancer and songwriter is currently a popular artiste in her homeland.
She started her career in 2010 as a street dancer in a musical group called Makirikiri. She is known to many music lovers for her hit songs – “Ghanama” with Prince Benza and “Matorokisi”; that she recorded with DJ Call Me.
Big events founder, Kopper Alotsi said the organisers went with the artist that would pull big grounds from different classes of people.
“We made sure that we cater for everyone with the aim to kick start the festive season because also when you look at the year it was not packed with big events,” Kopper said.
He added that both Shekhinah and Makhadzi are big artists with a big following hence they decided to go with them amongst the headliners.
“Makhadzi is undoubtedly the biggest crowd-puller not just in South Africa, but the entire continent hence we went with her and the likes of Shekinah.
“We are pleading with our people coming to the event to arrive early as gates will open at 11am and the event will go on until 10pm to allow time for travel before curfew,” Kopper said.
He mentioned that since the venue is closer to a main road, to avoid traffic congestion, they have setup parking spaces at adjacent schools such as the Adventville High School, Iketsetseng Primary School and at the Lesotho Congress for Democracy (LCD) grounds.
Revellers attending the event are expected to bring along their Covid-19 Vaccine cards and identity documents.
