Jam-packed excitement prevailed at Cosmo City’s Tanzania Park in extension2 on Saturday 2 February, as scores of people witnessed a combination of music and soccer entertainment.
Kgowa’s Entertainment hosted the 9a.m to 7p.m free-entrance event. Music and soccer fans from Zandspruit, Cosmo City, Diepsloot, Msawawa, and Lion Park attended. Incredible performances by local DJs gave the event an electrifying atmosphere while the battle between sixteen soccer teams kept the spectators captivated and celebrating.
The event’s purpose was to bring the community together and to jump start the entertainment proceedings, said Tebogo Matlou, popularly known as LekgowaDaDJ, the founder of Kgowa’s Entertainment.
“I am very happy with the turnout,” Matlou told the Chronicle. “In most cases, when the youth gather, they normally do bad things like protesting and doing mob justice by burning crime perpetrators.”
Matlo said that he was happy there were no fights or serious injuries during the event.
“I love it when people get entertained,” he said. “This time we decided to bring soccer and music at the same time to get the community together. It is a good thing because in such an event people get to know each other and some get their talents realised. We will continue hosting that event on a yearly basis.”
In the near future, Matlou said, he wants to engage various stakeholders and companies to bring more entertainment to he community.
Community members speaking to the Chronicle expressed their happiness with the event.
“This is a very good way to start the month of love (February),” said Marvin Maphalala. “ I think entertainment works hand in glove with expressing love because the aim is to bring happiness. So we are happy we got time to socialize with people from other communities. I personally appreciate such kind of entertainment.” �Bl��% \�
