Gilbert Seagile aka PP has been around.

The founder of Gilbert Promotions which was instrumental in taking big brands such as, Culture Spears, Vee, Mingo, Slizer, Jojo and many others multitudes of people across Africa is at it again.

PP has established a Non Governmental Organisation called Charity Begins at Home, which he said will help young people discover their true talent.

“I have been around long enough to know that there are a lot of young people with so much talent, but only need someone to lead them into the right direction,” he said.

The NGO which has Taolo Moshaga as the strategic Patron will identify, nurture and promote young people with the ultimate aim of seeing them start business ventures.

“We will align this NGO with government’s poverty eradication initiatives the moment the NGO is launched,” he said.


The very first David Magang’s annual Interschool Quiz Competition draws to an end this Saturday.

The All Star Comedy Jam Show is bringing non-stop laughter to Gaborone this Thursday at Gaborone Sun Hotel with South Africa’s most funny and acclaimed stand-up top comedian Shampoo, alongside top local acts.

Standup comedy is slowly becoming a force to reckon with locally which has seen the production of the Laff-a-lot DVD which features some of the best local funny men.

Apart from ‘Tips’ as Shampoo is popularly known; today’ show will feature Goodie The Badd and Brooks.

These two are some of the best in the country. Goodie is the first comedian in Botswana to record a one Man Standup comedy show.

He is an energetic comedian who likes engaging the audience with his witty satirical views.

When Citie Seetso became the first local based jazz artist to have a slot in the prestigious annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival, I thought doors were finally open for locals.

With the recent resurgence of jazz in the country I was hopeful that this year another local muso will make it.

When the show kicks off this Friday no local artist will be playing.

That magic when Seetso and Bro John Selolwane captured the hearts of many will not be repeated.

Hopefully, just hopefully a local will make the line-up next year.


April 5th seemed too far, when news that American rapper Ja Rule (Jeffrey Atkins) would be coming to Botswana.
