Ikalanga music sensation Bana Bana Ba Ntogwa have revealed that they are in desperate need of financial help so that they can be able to be part of the Botswana Independence celebrations in London.
Speaking to Voice Entertainment last week the group leader Allah Teedzani Ntogwa said the group wants to take their Ikalanga music to the world.
“I realised our music’s potential when we performed in six cities in India two years back. The massive Indian crowds just loved us. The massive crowds at the capacity filled halls and stadiums just could not believe what they were seeing and hearing. They just kept on screaming for more. In some places people climbed on trees and rooftops just to have a glimpse at us. That is why we decided that if funds permit we will go and perform in London”, Allah told Voice Entertainment.
Besides approaching the business community for help the singer is walking the streets of Francistown begging for money to fund the trip to England.
“The public is very responsive. I trust the business community will heed our call” she said.
Meanwhile the women with an inspiring voice and power in her dance said that the music she and her mates play is inspired by her late grandfather, Ntogwa, the Ikalanga priest who was also responsible for the rainmaking ceremony. Ntogwa was the link between the Bakalanga and their deity; Nwali.
