NEWLY-OPENED radio station, Mxxl 91.0, will this Saturday host a gala in which fans will get a chance to mix and mingle with Hip Hop artistes.

Dubbed, “Universal Night”, the gala is also meant to promote the fledgling station, which also goes by the name Space Age Radio.

Mxxl 91.0 is a youth-oriented station offering a mix of current affairs and music. It boasts a diverse roster of presenters, who include veterans and new entrants, with the target audience the 25-45-year-old demographic.

Mxxl 91.0’s Kekeletso Masitha told the Weekender that the event would afford music lovers an up close and personal interaction with their favourite artists who include Hip Hop headliners L-Tore, T-Mech, Boshoa Botšoeroe, Kopano, OGM, RMC, Juvy and Jiji F.

“Space Age Radio is working towards becoming the leading station in uplifting the youth, and this gesture is meant to foster relationships between artists and fans because our listeners only get to hear good music during our programmes but do not know the people behind it,” said Masitha, who added that the station’s presenters who include Mr Maps, Nuch and Temo among others will also be on hand to interact with fans.

“It was our intention to have artists from all the music genres in the country. But since this is our inaugural event, we will only have Hip Hop artists as it is arguably the most popular genre among the youths.

“We are hoping to have regular events of this nature, but since it is still at the experimental stage, we will reveal after the show when others will follow.”

The gala will also feature South African Motswako rapper, Tuks Senganga, who has endeared himself with local fans owing to his regular performances in the Mountain Kingdom.

The Mafikeng-bred Tuks Senganga was born Tumelo Kepadisa and uses the medium of ethnic languages to express himself, though Setswana predominates in his songs. His career took off in 2005 with his debut album Mafoko a me which earned him the Best Hip Hop Album Award at the 12th Annual MTN South African Music Awards.

In Lesotho, Tuks Senganga performed at the Vodacom Summa Feva and Khubetsoana-based entertainment hotspot 4fordy.

Admission is M150, with food and drinks also sold at the gala.
