AVANI hosts Valentine’s Day show
LOVE will be in the air on 14 February 2017 as AVANI Maseru Hotel hosts the second edition of its Valentine’s Show headlined by pop classic quartet Kingdom Classics.
The four-member group’s shows, which are held during Valentine, Easter/Winter, Independence and Christmas, have become a prominent feature on the local entertainment calendar. AVANI Maseru Hotel started hosting the Valentine’s Day show last year.
Formed in 2009, the group is comprised of Teboho Mothobi, Tuoe Hantši, Mojai Madras and Motebang Koneshe. Kingdom Classics’ fusion of classical music from as long back as the 18th century with contemporary sounds has earned them rave reviews over the years.
Hantši told Xpress People this past week revelers can look forward to love songs in English, Spanish and their Sesotho renditions.
He said a scintillating show was in store for music lovers, with up to 10 songs rearranged in Sesotho.
“We always try to make every edition of our shows interesting by trying different approaches such as giving fans the microphone to sing along with us and that interaction creates a very warm relationship,” said Hantši.
“For the past two years, we introduced songs rearranged in Sesotho which have been well received by the fans and so far we have 10.”
The feedback from fans, he said, was integral to the group’s enduring success.
“Every time we plan our show, we always engage the fans by finding out which songs they prefer most so we will be able to satisfy them and allow them to sing along. We promise to deliver the best like we always do.
“What I am not sure about is whether we will be able to sing beyond the set time like we normally do when people ask for more since the show will be held during the week.”
Kingdom Classics is also lined up to perform on 17 February at the National University of Lesotho (NUL) in Roma to raise funds for the institution.
“The NUL students will be participating in the Intervarsity Games which will be held in Swaziland in March this year. So their choir asked us to help them in the preparations,” Hantši revealed.
“The proceeds of the event will be used to cover the costs of their trip to Swaziland. We have asked the NUL students to maintain the standards we always maintain at our shows such as formal dressing because we do want mediocrity just because it’s a charitable event.”
