KGOBOLA THE GAME CHANGER
I take him to be one of the pioneers of today’s traditional music.
Kgobola of “Mr Chinese” and “Mokoti of ko Jwaneng” fame was perhaps together with Stigger Sola the first people to play modern day “Borankana”.
Maxy and the rest followed. He was the game changer.
Kgobola used to mesmerize me with his baritone and it just saddens me that this musical genius may suffer the same fate as Stampore and many other artists who never got the rewards for their talent.
Kgobola needs help now, not tomorrow.
