Cube Events out to pacify revelers
CUBE Events has promised fans a blazing show on 30 March, featuring South Africans, Prince Kaybee and Shakes in place of the Lesotho Easter Grand Festival (LGEF) where Nigerian star Tekno was scheduled to perform.
According to the organisers, the show, dubbed LGEF Promo Tour, is meant to pacify revelers who had already cleared their schedules for the festival are entertained.
The Tekno show was postponed to a date that is yet to be announced after the artiste announced he had another booking a day after his local show and would not be able to fulfil both due to the distance between Lesotho and Nigeria.
Ndaba Matshe, the spokesperson of Cube Events said the promo tour would be a build up to the rescheduled gig while safeguarding their credibility on the market.
He said although it may be disappointing that the show has been postponed, the shift has also come as a blessing in disguise.
Matshe said they have also partnered with Vodacom Lesotho for the Tekno gig while other partners like 4Fordy.
“We are aware that postponing the event has demotivated many people, hence we brought the big guns on board, who have been doing this longer than we have” Matshe said.
“Postponing the show has been advantageous to us, as it will give us more time to prepare.”
The Easter bash was expected to feature local heavyweights including Afro DJs, Deepee; Kopper; Osmic; Tseko; Vesta; Dumanis; Ebonics; Gama and Indo & Innvendos, Juvy, MIP among other acts, all of whom will be featured on the upcoming show.
Hosts of the activations for the Promo Tour, 4Fordy, said they would ensure that showgoers were jazzed up for the event.
“Cube events has committed to paying all the artistes that will be part of the promotion,” 4Fordy marketing manager, Mosebetsi Matsela said.
He added that 4Fordy was the best place to have the build-up as they were capable pf entertaining a varied audience.
“We have themed days, from Monday to Thursday with different age groups, and each day we will have competitions where there would be prizes to be won,” Matsela said.
