THE SAINT IN LOUIS
Kgalagadi Breweries Marketing Manager Alcoholic Beverages Thabiso Bothole is on spirited mission to cash on the current limelight enjoyed by the St Louis brand.
The two local brands scooped a Monde Selection
Silver Award for Taste and Quality. Explaining the new catch phrase “I only ask for one thing.
The best,” he said it appreciates the uncompromising quality seeking nature of the brand’s consumers.“This applies in all they do, be it fashion, entertainment, sports, business or leisure activities, the expectation is that they will receive the best,” he said.
With this international recognition, one hopes the sales will go up and more money will be ploughed back in the community, especially entertainment industry since alcohol has been banned from sports.
Those of you who have been awaiting Nnunu Ramogotsi’s debut album need not lose sleep.
The mastering is complete and a glittering launch is billed for September where the selected few will have an opportunity to listen to perhaps one of the most expensive local albums.
The album MmaSonoko was produced by talented Tshepo Lesolle or T-Les in music circles. A member of the growing Women of Jazz group, Nnunu held an album preview at GICC last month and got a thumbs up from all who attended.
This DVD is one of the few that had me in confusion for some time, not because I could not reach a verdict but simply because there is too much involved.
First Tender Age is a group of
school girls produced by Slate; now my biggest problem was deciding on which scale to use to charge school girls.
There is no denying that the singing will improve with time. There is always something refreshing about listening to young people sing gospel, purely because they are not pretentious. The DVD has been getting massive airplay on e-Botswana; a suggestion that it’s a product worthy of your attention. It gets 6 out of 10.
When some injustice has been done, it is only wise to rectify the mistake.
The review for this DVD appeared sometime back but after watching this flick a couple of time I thought it would make sense to bring it back to this page. This is perhaps one of the best ever drama produced locally in terms of quality; it’s a pity that local movies have been unofficially banned from Botswana television.
Produced by Johnson Otlaadisa, Bandleng takes you through the life in Lobatse townships. It could have been a setting right out of the Bronx; only with no guns, but the action and comedy is out of this world nonetheless. It’s a pity that that such great production will only be viewed by a few people. Simply put Bandleng rocks.
MISS VISION 2016 ON THECARDS
Kiss Africa Entertainment has collaborated with the Vision Council to host the vision 2016 beauty pageant.
The final of the anticipated pageant has been penciled for June 29 at the Gaborone International Convention Centre. Organizer of the pageant Phuthego Chere said the pageant is more than a show for beautiful girls as it will also be a platform to tell people more about the vision pillars.
According to the council’s Publicity Manager Charity Kgotlafela, they undertook a countrywide research that showed that 93% of the locals know about the vision but only 18 % are living it. The pageant will be in two sections; there will be the official launch party at Cresta Lodge on June 22 followed by the show on June 29.
