Bantu attracts stars to gala dinner

MASERU – Econet Premier League champions Bantu are bringing the stars out again for their popular annual gala dinner.
This year the glitzy show will be held on August 4 at Avani Maseru and will once more be headlined by a cast of South African television and radio celebrities.
The goal of the gala dinner is to raise funds for the club and ‘A Matšo Matebele’ are hoping to do better than the M250 000 made from last year’s show.

To do that Bantu have called on South African TV star Clement Maosa who plays the character of Kwaito on popular SABC 1 soapie, Skeem Saam. Also set to feature this year is popular radio sports presenter Dikeledi Makgongwana of Lesedi FM.

The Mafeteng giants will use the occasion to celebrate their successful 2017/18 campaign in which they captured both the Econet Premier League and Independence Cup titles.
To get a ticket to the prestigious event, however, guests will have to dig deep into their pockets with ticket prices up from last year.

“Last year I was not with Bantu but I know tickets per individual cost M500 and now it is M600 per person,” ‘A Matšo Matebele’ spokesperson Bokang Phasumane told thepost.
“A table for 10 people was M6 000 last year but now it is M7 000, so it is clear this year we are trying to raise more money than we did last year.”
In 2017, the club invited popular South African actors Cornet Mamabolo, who plays the character of Tbose in Skeem Saam, as well as Dawn Thandeka King who is MaNgcobo on Uzalo which also airs on SABC 1.

In 2016, Dingaan Mokebe, known as James Motsamai on Muvhango, and Sindi Dlathu, famous for her role as Thandaza on the same show, were the main guests at Bantu’s gala dinner.
“The way companies are booking tables shows that the ceremony is going to be a success,” Phasumane said.

“Tickets sales are going well; the anticipation is that before the end of this week all tickets will be sold.
“A lot of companies are buying tickets and we are hopeful of forging relationships and getting new sponsors on board.”
