Mapetla has a very special place in the hearts of many fans at home and regionally.
Botswana Music Union (BOMU) award winning Eureka, the Coverboy alongside his South African mate Notshi are set to rock the Lizard Entertainment in Francistown tonight (Friday) from 8pm.

LAFF-A-LOT COMES TO TOWN
What a better way to put a smile on Francistown revellers?
After the Happiness Planet Index (HPI) categorized Botswana as a country with the saddest citizens, Laff-a-lot Comedy show organizers will herd to Francistown to make people happy.
Thapama Hotel will tonight (Friday), be the place to be. One of the organizers said; “Residents of Francistown cannot afford to miss this glorious opportunity to relax the mind and at least laugh their lungs out.”
Popular MC Maswe last Friday fought back tears while presenting a school uniform to a Form 4 male student at Masunga Senior Secondary School.
42-year-old Thapelo Maleka, who never enjoyed the opportunity to study as far as Form 5, was extremely touched when he learnt that there was a student in Masunga who could not attend school regularly because he did not have proper school uniform.
He took it upon himself and bought the boy’s full school uniform which he handed over to the student on Friday. “Every citizen has the right to education.
But if the parents cannot afford to support their child, this is where the corporate world and individuals come in,” he said.
Amid a thunderous round of applause, MC Maswe announced that he chose to adopt the student and would be helping him with books, uniforms and other school things.
