Boetelo Resort near Notwane farms will this year host the annual Son of the soil Cultural event from 28th February – 02nd March.

This year’s event encourages Batswana from across the region to come in large numbers to share their life experiences and their local art, hence the theme “Kwa re go tswang”.

Activities for the day would include an Evening Fire Dance on February 28th, the Main Event on 1st March and Jazz by local groups on the 2nd March afternoon.

Tickets for the show cost P250 and are available at Molapo Crossing Mall, Shop No. 23, House of Scents (next to Dros).


Gospel music has evolved over the years. Young people have managed to fuse it with hip hop, rock, jazz, Borankana and even kwasa-kwasa.

The new single by Pee H called ‘Re A Mo Leboga’ is a fast paced kwasa-kwasa gospel song. Now kwasa –kwasa is all about dancing.

There is serious twerking in this genre and I wonder how my fellow Christians are going to go about this one.

Christian gatherings will become interesting, that is if they give this song the respect it deserves and twerk.

It is a good song that brought back Kanda Bongo Man memories. The song gets a raunchy 8 out of 10.


I don’t know who between Solly Moholo and Oleseng Shuping (May his soul rest in peace) made Zion Christian Church music popular and more fashionable.

Shuping was more conventional while Moholo managed to bring a bit of pop into the ZCC gospel music. With songs like Ba mmitsa tsotsi, Tshwarang o ratang mfundisi, Moholo brought something new.

Bro Sam, a local artist has taken the bar even higher. Sam sings wedding songs ZCC style!

The eight track album titled Nomsa o ile is a wonderful production from PPN Links Records.

I see many people walking down the aisle to one of Sam’s songs. Other songs include “Ke mokete, Lesapo, Suta, Lenyalo, and Re tla Kgaogangwa. It gets 8 out of 10.


The experience which received raving reviews last year will definitely catch many by off guard this year.

For one to attend the Khawa Dune Challenge, proper planning is necessary given that Khawa is miles away.

Fun lovers who are used to having the popular event held in August will be shocked to learn that the Dune Challenge has been moved to May this year, apparently due to elections.

I’m pretty sure we (including organizers) knew that the country would be going for elections this October, so why was this vital piece of information not communicated earlier?

Dune challenge fanatics who were still awaiting their cheap quad bikes from China, I’m sorry to dash your hopes.

The event is just two months away.


They gave revelers a night to remember recently at Maitisiong, now Keneilwe A Dance For The Given, a dance theatre production by Sky Blue Dance Hub, has been invited to perform at the Harare International Festival of the Arts (HIFA).

The Arts Festival is scheduled to take place between April 29th and May 4th 2014.

The play Keneilwe- A Dance For The Given addresses issues such as rural to urban migration, asylum seeking and resettlement in the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical forms.
