In line with the carnival’s mission to make every event better than the previous one, this year’s fiesta is expected to be more glittering and fun, amid the global depression caused by the pandemic.
This year’s episode of the music festival is titled “LETOFE 2020 ‘New Normal’ – COVID-19 Edition”, featuring favourite local song birds such as Selimo Thabane, 'The Village Pope' Tšepo Tšola, ’Malehloka ‘Maleh’ Hlalele, Mookho and Juvy, to mention but a few.
“LETOFE 2020 here we come! Thaba-Bosiu is where we will be. I am honoured to be part of this festival and Basotho always support this initiative because organisers ensure that we get the best of the best in music,” says aspiring soul star ’Maleh.
LETOFE emerges as one of the most outstanding events in the country’s entertainment calendar, pulling crowds from all corners of the world, enticing some of the most renowned international artistes to share the stage with their Lesotho counterparts.
From South Africa, the event has managed to lure jazz gurus including Don Laka, Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabuse and Stimela along with new Afro soul stars Sands, Da Star & TTD and Flame Boy.
The festival organiser, Montoeli ’Moleli expressed his satisfaction at the way the event has been growing over the years, adding however, that there is still room for improvement.
