Like all other musicians across the country and beyond the borders of Botswana, MC Maswe popularly known as Thapelo Maleka has grabbed the opportunity to perform at political rallies with both hands.
Word reaching Grooving in the Ghetto has it that MC Maswe could not watch from the sidelines as the likes of Vee (Odirile Sento) and Naledi Kaisara (Slizer) smile all the way to the bank thanks to performances at political rallies.
He is expected to perform at the launch of Samson Guma Moyo at Tatisiding village.
The Ramotswa lad is expected to rub shoulders with the BDP bigwigs and probably formulate relationships for future performances.
Contacted for a comment, the charismatic performer and singer confirmed the development but was not willing to discuss the circumstances that led to him being contracted.
“Is there anything wrong with me performing at a BDP rally? Lo rata dilo tsa batho,” said MC Maswe before hanging up.
But the bottom line is that MC Maswe has joined the bandwagon of musicians.
Scores of night crawlers who gathered at Dumela Lodge left the scene a satisfied lot.
With DJ Cue (Musa Puso) and DJ Cheng (Odirile Chengeta) manning the music box during the Miller Party last Saturday, scores of revellers danced the night away, braving the chilly southeasterly winds that characterize the winter season in Ghetto.
When DJ Cheng took over the reins, the dance floor was flooded to the fullest.
And most of them started shouting “Ga re tsamaye, re lala mo Dumela Lodge (We are not leaving this place, we will sleep at Dumela Lodge).”
The shouting seemed to give both DJs the energy to belt tune after tune and at one point they shared the stage.
