The much-loved show dubbed "The Hangover" will this year feature amongst others, South African (SA)-born star, Ndivhudzannyi Ralivhona, better known by her stage name Makhadzi.
The song-bird from the Limpopo province who made a name for herself performing in small events, in the streets, taxi ranks and nameless night clubs has since turned into a renowned international performer.
She now entertains revelers from countries like Malawi, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Ghana, Nigeria and soon she will entertain crowds in Lesotho.
Organisers of the “All White” party - Big Events, powered by Maluti Mountain Brewery (MMB), also announced that the event will feature live performances from a lineup of SA artistes including Shekinah, DJ Sumbody, Vetkuk and Mahoota along with several local favorites such as Juvy, Boobs, Monyase DJ, Frequency, Le Goody and Tribes.
The audience at the show is expected to wear only white outfit, from head to toe.
Makhadzi who is making waves as a singer, dancer and songwriter is currently a popular artiste in her homeland.
She started her career in 2010 as a street dancer in a musical group called Makirikiri. She is known to many music lovers for her hit songs – “Tshanda Vhuya” and Matorokisi; that she recorded with DJ Call Me.
Makhadzi’s fans call her “Queen of Africa” and her anticipated performance in Maseru has become the talk of the nation.
“She is undoubtedly the biggest crowd-puller for the upcoming event,” remarks local and veteran Kwaito artist, Manyofi.
On a recent post on her social media account, Makhadzi left her fans drooling over her endearing pictures which depicted her in Sesotho attire, indicating her readiness to visit Lesotho.
Last Sunday, the energetic performer bagged her first All Africa Music Awards (Afrima) 2021 accolade in Lagos, Nigeria.

She got the nod in the best artiste and duo or group in African electro category for her hit song Murahu.
Makhadzi also gave an electrifying performance on Sunday night in Lagos.
In a post event interview, the musician said she had tried in vain for the past seven years to be recognised by the Afrima awards.
“Good evening Africa. I'm speechless, but I want to thank God, for taking me out of the streets of SA and bringing me here, in Lagos, to represent my culture, Tshivenda,” she said.
The Afrima, in partnership with the African Union commission, seeks to celebrate the rich musical heritage of the African continent and the diaspora.
