CUBAN Linx in Maseru is the place to be this weekend as the club will host three events from tonight till Saturday night.
Kicking it off this evening will be the second edition of the monthly Dirt-Mouth Sessions (also known as Versus Lesotho) where two local rappers, Silent Fate and Kat-Law will battle it out for the M1000 prize money.
One of the organisers, DJ Da Starr has told this publication in previous interviews that the idea was for the rappers to amicably settle their ‘beefs’ through a live performance before an audience and a panel of judges.
The first edition was held on 29 June, 2017 and it featured rappers, OG S’killz and Anonymous in a battle which was won by the former.
Tonight’s contest will be judged by Mr Maps, Masilo Mosouenyane and Cymtom Beats.
There will be supporting performances from Meloh, Kislev, Skebz D, Reborn, OG S’killz and Anonymous. DJs Trybz, Hobbs, Hitman, NINE24 and Da Starr will hold it down behind the DJ booth.
On Friday night, soulful House aficionados will be in for a treat with the best of the genre being served by local heavyweights, Harris T, Thoxie, Mekonko, Agent K and Khotso Molapo. The South African contingent will comprise of the likes of Dixie, Stone Candi, Garish, Razor Minora, Kaylo and SK-Dog.
Dubbed Music Beyond Boundaries II, the event will be held to celebrate TshepzaDJ’s 37th birthday.
The Mohale’s Hoek-born disc spinner who has been playing professionally since 2010, will play alongside the aforementioned DJs.
On Saturday, Scorpio Knights entertainment company will host the Winter Fest with the aim of shaking the winter blues.
Scorpio Knights was introduced last November partly to celebrate co-owner, Sekonyela Matamane’s 30th birthday. Matamane said Scorpio Knights intends to cement itself as the number one entertainment provider in the country.
