Arguably Botswana’s disc jockeying beat master and Botswana Television (Btv)’s resident Disc Jockey (DJ) La Timmy is in town.
29-year-old Timothy Sabuta of Kasane is expected to perform at the Lizard Entertainment tomorrow night (Friday).
Popularly known for his energy and versatility on the stage, DJ La Timmy is expected to draw crowds tonight.
He is known for his deep, rich and well coordinated African beats much to the excitement of revelers. Sabuta, who is a producer and MC, is an entertainer par excellence.
The Refilwe hit maker started his disc jockeying in Francistown while a student at the FSSS and his long time admirers would have an opportunity of watching the boy live on stage.
Enthusiasts of the annual Zhizha/Letlhafula cultural event to be hosted by Tati River Lodge tomorrow (Friday) should brace themselves for a mouthful.
Organizers of the annual event have promised nothing but the best.
Traditional food will be in abundance while music is expected to sooth the attendance to the core.
Emerging and Francistown based traditional troupe, Dinkwe Nkoga is expected to take the stage by storm.
As if that is not enough, the evergreen Botswana Defense Force (BDF) band will be also ready to add on what the traditional troupe is expected to dish on the day.
Acco9rding to the newly appointed Khupe Group of Companies Marketing Officer, Andy Boatlile, the BDF band saxophonists will definitely leave the attendance spellbound. The way they blow the saxophone is awesome.
According to the Longman dictionary, ululation is described as a long low sound made with a voice. It does not talk about applying any technique in it.
But a lady who was ululating when a poetic comedian Kagiso Obokeng was doing his thing last Saturday night, gave a totally new version of ululation.
The eloquence of the ululation is out of this world. And one wonders why the President Ian Khama is yet to introduce the competition of Ululation during his famous President’s Competitions.
The way she quickly changes the sound and tone says a lot.
There is technique in ululation these days. One could see that there is a skill being applied when she twisted and rolls the tongue.
Scores of Barclays Bank staff and invited guests screamed on top of their voices as she ululated.
Who said art is for artists? And who said bankers cannot be artists? Last Saturday night, answers were revealed.
Kagiso Obokeng, a banker with Barclays Bank of Botswana proved to all and sundry that where there is a will, there is a way. He is in the financial industry but his poetry is out of this world. One could argue that the man lives, eats and sleeps poetry. His capability in playing with words is awesome.
Obokeng could be in the wrong industry. And his colleagues ran out of words when describing him.
Terrence Showa, one of the directors of ceremonies, said he enjoyed the man’s talent on a daily basis as he works just fifty meters away from his desk.
Another director of ceremonies, Tshepo Moshaga said Obokeng mentors poets and three of his novices were crowned winners at the just ended 2013 President’s Competitions.
