While we were in Maputo, Mozambique we attended the #CastleLiteUnlocks FUTURE concert. It was on fire! The concert took place the evening of the 21st July at Aqua Park in Maputo.
The venue was packed. Mozambicans know how to get down. Let me tell you about the entire experience.
The #CastleLiteUnlocks experience kicked off with a Press Conference held at Rani Towers and the Radisson Blu Hotel in Maputo around 2pm. We had SA artists, Cassper Nyovest, DJ Voodoo and DJ Maphorisa on the hot seat.
The guys having a laugh.
Mozambican hip hop star LayLizzy with DJ Voodoo. LayLizzy also performed at the event. I did interview LayLizzy sometime back, if you missed the interview check it out HERE
Our girl Thato Malau taking selfies with Cassper Nyovest. It was fun.
DJ Maphorisa posing with Twins, Daniela and Filippa Mondlane who seem to be doing well in Moz. Daniela is a Celebrity Stylist and Blogger. Filippa is an Entrepreneur, she was also part of Big Brother Xtremo (Mozambique and Angola) Season 3. She was a Runner Up. A friend of mine from Mozambique told me that the twins are granddaughters of the late former President Eduardo Mondlane.
The DJ, Ellex and Cassper
We were then told that FUTURE was knocked out because of jetlag and couldn’t make it to the Press Conference. His team promised that he was gonna make time for us later on without fail.
The evening came and it was time for some real action. We parked our cars at a VIP section and we were driven to the event. The set up blew me away. It was a killer!
Look at this.
It was bananas…..They took it to another level.
The concert kicked off. LayLizzy killed it
DJ Voodoo also did his thing
Cassper Nyovest kinda disappointed me. I know what he’s capable of that’s why I wasn’t happy with his performance. It wasn’t the Cassper I know. I then remembered that he had just came back from doing some work in Ibiza and I concluded that he was tired. It’s ok, we understand.
DJ Maphorisa doing what he does best
We were then called to a Press Conference with FUTURE. Yes he was ready for us and very much wide awake. Hehehehe! That’s Daniela Mondlane interviewing him.
Well, look at us slaying. Our glasses bandla! FLAMES…
Yeah it’s true, FUTURE does look like my man a bit. People used to say that to me but now I see it clearly. I was even comparing their baby pictures the other day. Tltltltltl
Soon after the 15min Press Conference, the man hit the stage.
The crowd went CRAZY!!!
He satisfied ALL of us. People danced and the ‘floors’ started cracking. It was massive.
Nothing to complain about. It was LIT.
After the concert in Mozambique, it was time for #CastleLiteUnlocks FUTURE in Tanzania. I will share pics with y’all in another post.
Thank you so much to Gugu Ndabezitha of DNA Brands and to Castle Lite’s Ramona Kayembe for taking good care of us. You guys ROCK!!
Let’s start the preparations for 2018. I wonder which African countries we’ll be heading to for next year’s #CastleLiteUnlocks Experience. Mmmmmmh!
