Lentswe la Batlhokapono will soon be able to buy the musical instruments they desperately need in order to do what they love; play music.
Zen Promotions in their spirited efforts dubbed the Ten Good Deeds have revealed to the Voice that help for the former Donald Botshelo band mates is on the way.
The Voice ran a story last week about the two talented artists who were spotted in Old Naledi playing at a shebeen and there was a wide public response on the story.
“Dinner will be held at the fairgrounds Pavilion on the 2nd of August which the proceeds will go to a group of blind young talented men called Letswe La Batlhokapono who are established musicians,” said a statement from the events management company.
Lentswe La Batlhokapono Musical Group consists of six band members. They kicked off their career at Mochudi Resource Centre in 1989 as a school band named African Formers featuring the late Donald “Don-B” Botshelo.This group would subsequently give birth to the now acclaimed Lentswe-La Batlhokapono. Even with them being established as a band, they do not have enough finances to buy musical instruments to complete their band setup.
“The major reason for this dinner is to raise sufficient funds for these blind men to get instruments. As it is said inability is not disability.”
