Bringing the house down on Valentine’s Day

MASERU- Queen’s Entertainment is holding a Couples Day bash at The Joint (formerly Setsoto Restaurant) in Ha-‘Nelese to commemorate Valentine’s Day.

The age-old ritual that is Saint Valentine’s Day is commemorated by lovers every February 14 in most parts of the world and remains one of the most popular dates— to those who care about their partners, anyway.

DJ Bootz, who is one of the organisers of the bash, is threatening to bring the house down, while delivering the message of love on this special day.

“We want to bring couples together and get them in the mood for love. We are going to ensure every Mosotho gets the true meaning behind Valentine’s Day. There is going to be lots of entertainment, as well as prizes for couples with the best attire, courtesy of Cardes and Glitz,” he said.

“We are expecting a good turnout since Valentine’s Day only comes once a year, so why not grab that opportunity and take out your loved one this beautiful, romantic evening? This is the time to (publicly) show your partner how much you love, respect and appreciate him or her. Come and make this a night to remember.”

This romantic event will have the who-is-who of local deejaying, among them Rated R, Bootz, Hally, Cooper and Pozinor.

“We will only have local entertainers and the gig will be an all-night affair. There is no age restriction. Both singles and couples are welcome; I wouldn’t miss it for the world because who knows, some might even meet their Mr & Mrs Right on this memorable night. There is also going to be a VIP section, where tickets will cost R40 for one and R100 for two and then you get free wine and eats. But otherwise, the ‘normal’ admission charge will be R30,” DJ Hally told Express People on Wednesday.

Valentine’s Day or Saint Valentine‘s Day is named after an ancient Christian martyr named Valentine and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD.

 Traditionally, it is a day on which lovers send each other flowers, confectionery and greeting cards.

 Meanwhile, there is certainly no shortage of venues in Maseru for those love-smitten couples to express their undying affection for each other, this Valentine’s Day.

Maseru Sun Hotel and Casino has teamed-up with Cardes and Vodacom Lesotho in organising a Valentine’s Day dinner this evening, where couples will also stand a chance of winning various prizes.

According to Lesotho Sun Hotel and Casino assistant manager Clix Salman, today’s banquet is part of bumper weekend celebrations, which began with a Valentine’s dinner dance at Lesotho Sun last night.
