“STUDENTS” dance the night away at the Maseru Sun Back To School bash

Adults don kids’ school uniform

 

. . . hilarious Back-to-School lives to its billing

By Mohalenyane Phakela

MASERU — The annual Maseru Sun Cabanas Back-to-School bash lived up to expectation with the hotel’s convention centre filled to capacity last Saturday.

At least 400 revellers showed up at the event to have a time of their lives. Many looked stunning in their school uniforms that suited them perfectly.
But for some, you would just stare and wonder how they managed to squeeze themselves into those outfits or how they managed to breathe.

How does a fully grown man or woman fit into a ten-year-old primary school pupil’s uniform?
The joke of the night was one of the “students” who was simply announced as Ntate Nkhahle.

He wore a worn out white shirt which had become a “see through”, a pair of khaki shorts that were so worn out that they got torn while he was dancing. The shoes he wore were something else; it was as if he had inherited them from his great-grandfather.

Nkhahle had his enamel one-litre mug tied to his pants as he moved around. He walked away with a well deserved Worst Dressed Student award for which he bagged a Maseru Sun voucher and a Miller hamper.

The best dressed students were Ntate Thabiso and ‘M’e Nthabeleng who were also awarded Miller hampers and Maseru Sun vouchers.
Other prizes were awarded in the form of a raffle, courtesy of Miller Genuine Draft.

On taking to the dance floor, the “students” displayed outstanding dance moves. For most of them, the passion to dance was evident but they simply did not have what it takes.

The dynamic duo of DJ Tseko and Counter Force, kept the “students” on their feet with old-school jams, some of which dating as far back as the 80s.
Mabahlakoana Motemekoane, Promotions Manager for Sun International hotels Lesotho said the event was growing annually.

“The tickets were completely sold out,” she said. “We are very thankful for the support Basotho are showing.”

The event is basically aimed at reliving those high school and primary school memories in a fun-filled manner.

Revellers partied till the early hours of Sunday, with clear reluctance to leave when the show was over.
