DJ to host big birthday bash

Mohalenyane Phakela

MASERU — DJ Mekonko will on Saturday host a massive music extravaganza at Times Cafe to celebrate his birthday.
It will be the third consecutive time that the owner of Mekonko Sound Hire and resident deejay at Times Cafe celebrates his birthday in style, with South Africa’s big names entertaining patrons.

“I have tried to bring together the best of deep soulful House to come help me make my day special,” he said.
Mekonko told XpressPeople that this event is going to be better than any other he has ever organised, as he has four artistes from South Africa and a couple of local Deep House musos. Metro FM’s anchors Glen Lewis — whose hit single Ndiyo Ndiyo has been making waves on air — and T-Deep who has just dropped an album titled Fundamentals of House – are among the stars lined up to perform at the event.

“I have developed a special relationship with Glen Lewis so his coming here is more than just entertaining the crowd but to spot local talent. He will be taking local deejays’ mixes so as to play them during his show at Metro FM,” he said.
Mekonko who has more than 10 years in the trade believes his career has become a “blue-print” as he has had a chance to rub shoulders with the likes of French music veteran DJ Rocco and Ralf Gum who hails from Germany.

“Ralf Gum plays a very crucial role in my career because whenever I have questions regarding music, he helps me wholeheartedly. He has become my mentor,” he said. It is his own hard work that has earned him the respect of his peers in music. Mekonko grew up in Teyateyaneng but managed to penetrate Maseru’s busy night life.
“If I have made it, so can you. Be passionate about everything you do, believe me hard work pays,” he said.

He also said that for those fans with an adrenaline rush for his debut album, he promises to release it before the end of this year. Glen Lewis and T-Deep will be playing alongside Hypnotic Soul and Saxo who are also from South Africa, and a couple of our own Deep House deejays like Thoxie, Karma K and Tsepza DJ.
