Nollyhood stars coming to Lesotho

MASERU — Popular Nigerian child movie stars, Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme, who are famed across the continent for their humorous films, are coming to town.
The two movie stars are set to be in Maseru on 9 and 10 September for stand-up and drama comedy at Lehakoe and Setsoto stadium, respectively.
The event is organised by Gold Bond Consult, a local arts promotions company.
One of the organisers, Joachim Iyke Moneh, said they were bringing the two because of their popularity in Lesotho.
Ikedieze and Iheme will be performing alongside local musicians Mthibo, Stlofa and Dunamis while the likes of DJs Mekonko, Tseko and Tybzen will be blazing the turntables.
“We have been in Lesotho for a very long time and we learned how the two are popular among Basotho.”
“They have visited South Africa and we heard their Basotho fans complaining that they didn’t take a turn to visit Lesotho so we decided to organise a Lesotho focused show to promote the stars. We hope to create a platform for them to interact with their local fans,” Moneh said.
He added, “We will have a VIP show on September 9 at Lehakoe and a public show on September 10 at Setsoto Stadium.”
Moneh said they were making arrangements to meet Nollyhood fans at district level, especially schools.
“Chinedu Ikedieze and Osita Iheme’s popularity is very broad so we want to create an allowance for school children to see the two stars. We will be making arrangements with school principals prior to the events.”
Moneh said the shows would also serve to put to rest rumours that one of the actors is late. “The stars’ presence will ease speculations that one of them is late. They will also answer questions of whether they are kids or grown men,” Moneh said.
“We have never really witnessed an international star coming to Lesotho to entertain fans so by presenting the two we are bringing a new feel.”
He added the event would also help sell the country’s tourism sector.
“The two rats’ films are shot in different settings in Africa so during their visit we are going to take them site seeing so they can see the beauty Lesotho holds, maybe they will identify a spot for their future films.”
