Shota drives them wild at Mhlume Festival
MHLUME-South African musician Shota proved to be the darling of the ladies at the first ever Lubombo Festival on Saturday.
The event, which took place at the Mhlume Club, was attended by a fair crowd.
The talented star, who is a former member of afro pop group Shana, performed about five songs which were enough to drive his lady fans wild.
Things got even more exciting during his last performance of the song titled ‘Baby Kwenzenjani’ where he took off his shirt and pulled off some sexy dance moves along with his talented dancers.
Another crowd pleasers was the award winning track ‘Asisalali’ in which he engaged his lady fans at the front row by giving them the microphone to sing along with him.
One of the ladies couldn’t control herself when he knelt down beside her as she planted a kiss on his bald head in excitement.
The event itself failed to live up to expectation especially with regard to the number of people who attended as they were less than 500.
Most of those in attendance were folks from Mhlume, Simunye and surrounding areas.
Worth noting though is the fact that they were a vibey crowd and showed off their skills on the dance floor. There was great excitement when their favourite acts took to the stage.
They danced until way after 4pm.
Family day not so vibey
MHLUME - What was meant to be a family fun day turned out to be what most descri-bed as a dull and floppy day.
This is despite the fact that the organisers had tried their best to provide entertainment for everyone including games for children. So much was the feeling that at about 3pm, the sound technicians were still working hard on the sound system. It got worse at about 4pm when everyone was starting to flock the place only to be met with an arena filled with young children who were playing trampoline, jumping castle and games of chase all of which seemed to have no life.
…DJ Peace saves the day
MHLUME - DJ Peace not only sorted some technical glitches with the sound system but also brought life to the venue when most people had already concluded that it was going to be a night of gloom.
Some had started having doubts about seeing their favourite South African stars who included Gareth Cliff, Clock and Shota.
A power cut that lasted for about 30 minutes was experienced, which somehow confused the organisers.
DJ DD Cool tried his level best to sort it out while assuring the fans that the party was going to rock.
After almost two hours without music, DJ Peace and his crew arrived and saved the day.
When everything was back to normal, Peace took over the DJ box and kick-started the show with DJ Zinhle’s track called ‘My Name Is’ which brought most of the obviously bored fun lovers closer to the dance floor.
Peace dropped hit after hit and next was Idols judge and spinner Gareth Cliff who took to the decks at about 11pm with his hit track ‘Got to Love You’.
He was followed by DJ Clock who thrilled with some of his popular hits. The event eventually turned into a night full of fun as fun lovers danced the night away to the break of dawn. Shortly after his show, Gareth said he was so amazed with the crowd that he felt humbled. "It was, in fact, it is still a night full of fun and I love it. It’s amazing," he said.
