The pool party that started late afternoon gathered momentum during the night, with people swimming till the early hours of Sunday morning.
Bikini-clad models spiced up the event, keeping the crowd entertained.
Veteran disc jockey Joe Tha OG kept the crowd entertained with his prowess on the decks as he took the audience down memory lane with old school tunes.
Soon after his slot the duo of young promising DJs Lacusto and Que Bass did wonders on the decks as they played contemporary beats that appealed to the bumper youthful crowd.
As the night progressed guest DJ Dreazy from Botswana rocked the joint with his fresh hip-hop tunes and he managed to make a mark as some revellers marvelled at how he managed to fuse old school hip-hop with the current tracks.
Almost everyone in the pub was dressed in shorts and slopes with most ladies in bikinis among other trendy fashion styles of today.
“We are happy as organisers that there is nothing sinister about organising pool parties. In the past people who attended such events were viewed as deviants in society, but we are happy that now the industry in the city is fast recognising it and such events are appealing to the people,” said Joe The OG, one of the organisers.
“The party was a sign to mark that summer has begun and there will be more pool parties in the next couple of weeks until the end of the festive season.”
Meanwhile, at Amagugu Cultural and Heritage Centre, the well-travelled a capella ensemble Nobuntu kept the community entertained with their sweet melodic tunes. One of the group members Zanele Manhenga said the event was superb and they enjoyed the nature in the area and they were looking forward to visiting the place more regularly.
“We have seen the place, it was a good outing for us, especially the nature. As Nobuntu, we are saying we will continue visiting this place to hold our performances,” she said.
