Entertainment at the Edufair
Jul 27, 2014-
The three-day-long ‘Kathmandu Post Career Edufair 2014’ kicked off at Bhrikutimandap on Friday with a live musical performance by hip-hop singer Yama Buddha and versatile contemporary pop singer Sugam Pokharel.
After a programme that revolved around how students could map out their future careers, there was a musical treat for them outside the hall. The first big act of the event was Yama Buddha. But before he began his live performance, the hosts of the show, DJ Girish Khatiwada and Khusboo Pradhan, invited audiences to the stage, to sing and dance along with them. That interactive bit seemed to pep up the audience and when Buddha accompanied, by Slim Teapea, got on with his numbers, the crowd was ready to let loose.
“I am happy to perform in Kathmandu after a very long time and the audience’s reception really made me feel good,” said Buddha backstage. He was talking about audience members like Anju Karki, who was grooving to the beat together with her friends, Rojee Khakda and Manju Chhantyal. The three girls, all were preparing for their BSc in Nursing at the National Association of Medical Examiners, are planning to pursue further studies in Australia.
“It’s like a dream come true for me. I got a chance to meet Yama Buddha in person,” said Karki. Rojee Khakda too was ecstatic because she got to see her favourite singer, Sugam Pokharel, performing on stage. The trio also got a gift hamper for answering a question about the edufair that was asked by the emcees.
During the live music event, Pokharel started with his famous number Pheri Tyo Din, then proceeded to perform Mero Euta Sathi Chha and then the folk number Madali Bajyo. Singer Astha Raut and Mt 8848 performed live on the second day of the fair. On that day, Emcee DJ Girish also enthralled the audiences with his hip-hop numbers. There were more crowds on the second day of the fair than on the first.
