MASERU — The Joint in Ha-‘Nelese will host what promises to be a thrilling Ladies Night bash this coming Saturday.
Some of Lesotho’s top deejays — among them Tseko (pictured below), Dallas T, Counter Force, Slats, Bootz and Alex — are billed to perform at the all-night gig, scheduled to kick off at 7pm.
“The show seeks to raise the bar in the entertainment industry in our lovely country following complaints from the public that standards are really going down,” one of the organisers, Dallas T, said.
“This is so embarrassing and as people who are heavily involved in the entertainment industry, we have decided to do something about it.”
The spinner said for the industry to remain viable, stakeholders would have to think outside the box.
“We have to be very much creative and as DJs we know most people in the entertainment industry look up to us to lead the way,” he said.
“This industry is a stress-reliever and we have to ensure people get the kind of entertainment they can always look forward to, week in week out.”
In addition to what Dallas T said would be first-class entertainment, ladies will walk away with a variety of prizes at the bash.
“The best-dressed ladies, for instance, will get prizes at the gig,” he said.
“All this is meant to bring a special form of entertainment for revellers.”
Dallas T emphasised this was an adults-only show, where those below the age of 18 would not be allowed.
“We don’t want the elders to mix with the kids,” he said.
“This show is only meant for the mature lady because the party is going to rock the whole night.”
DJ Tseko said the event sought to pay tribute to ladies in Lesotho.
“It will be our pleasure to see the ladies having a good time,” DJ Tseko said.
“The show is meant to make the ladies feel loved; we would want them to know we appreciate and respect them, that we know their strengths and capabilities.”
To make the party truly remarkable, food and beverages will be sold at subsidised process at the show.
“We have arranged the low prices, to meet the ladies halfway,” he said.
The organisers plan to hold similar bashes throughout the country in due course.
“We would really want to do similar shows in the other districts, not just Maseru,” DJ Tseko said.
“The ladies have been ignored for a long time, and this is just to remind them we care.”
