THUMBS UP TO CHARITY
The first thing that gets one’s attention with this album is the attention seeking CD sleeve.
Yes; a sleeve is supposed to get a potential customer’s attention and Charity Boitshoko has done exceptionally well thanks to Xtreme Bumper Stickers who designed the sleeve.
The album O etla where she features Disciples Group is such a sweet gospel compilation. The 10 track album was executively produced by Charity’s husband Solly Boitshoko and co-produced by the talented Tshepo Lesole aka T Les. It captures both the contemporary and traditional gospel, giving you a well balanced product.
My favourite songs are Lyona where she features the international award winning Kabelo Eric and Messiah featuring T Les. Other songs are O etla Jeso, Joko, Mookamedi, Semphete, This Light, Sefapaano and My lifetime. It gets 9 out of 10.
MISS VISION 2016 TONIGHT
The annual Miss Vision 2016 takes place this Friday at Gaborone International Convention Centre.
Beautiful young lasses who recently showed their compassion by giving snacks at Princes Marina Oncology ward will be strutting their stuff to see who will be crowned the face of the
vision. The pageant organized by Kiss Africa was launched at Cresta Lodge last Friday and the girls seemed more than ready to take to the ramp.
With the support of Baisago University College as the main sponsors, the vision realization is definitely within reach. Tickets are P250, P400 and P7000 for a table of 10 people.
HOW THINGS SHOULD BE DONE
Music they say is the heartbeat of the nation, it is through this oldest art form that mankind is able to express their emotions.
Presidential music competition have brought so much excitement to most musicians and rightly so. Now every individual who harbours artistic ambitions has something to dream about, at least as a start. The competition has the potential to grow big if it can be stopped from being a monopoly of some artists.
A good number of them who have won a couple of times could be used as judges and scouts for raw talent in the country. For instance MyStar and My African Dream winners could be mentored by seasoned artists to prepare them for the competitions. Those who make it to the finals of the competitions could also use the mentorship of the country’s renowned artists.
I’m pretty sure that Shanti Lo can teach many a few things about stage performance.
Renowned South African artist Mqobi Ndabe aka Shota will be at Bull n Bush this evening alongside some of the hottest local DJs.
