Unheralded but talented Francistown based disc jockey, DJ Slim (Brian Monamati)’s birthday weekend starts tonight (Friday).
Francistown’s exclusive entertainment centre, Lizard Entertainment will be on fire tonight and tomorrow night as the illustrious but little known disc jockey is expected to celebrate his birthday.
He will be turning 31. Born and bred in the country’s second largest city, DJ Slim has decided to celebrate his birthday in the hood and honor the people who have been supporting him.
It is the first time for DJ Slim to host a birthday bash for himself.
To him, it is a new phenomenon that is aimed at ensuring that he shares his birthday memories with his fans.
He will be joined by his friends in both the dejaying and music industries.
DJ Bunz (Peter Gaseitsiwe) is one of the most celebrated disc jockeys in Francistown expected to join DJ Slim.
Some entertainers of the two nights are DJ Da Drat and selected musicians.
These are sure to be exciting nights as the birth of a heavyweight is celebrated.
After a month, Dumela Lodge Fridays are back with a bang.
For the past month, Dumela Fridays have not been happening but just last Friday Dumela Lodge hosted a powerful cultural night that saw great Hosanna and Tsutsube groups performing to the traditional music fans delight.
Hosanna is a Kalanga cultural dance and song while Tsutsube is mostly associated with the people from the Kgalagadi.
Popular disc jockey, DJ MR-CUE (Musa Puso) of the fast growing Cue Beats Entertainment is expected to be spinning the decks all alone this time around.
His usual partners in crime, DJ KUD (Kuda Molebedi) and DJ Cheng (Arnold Chengeta) are said to be unavailable this Friday due to work commitments.
“But fans should not despair. The other side of DJ MR-CUE will be unveiled this Friday.
It is against this backdrop that I chose to do it alone,” said Puso.
He said he will spin the discs from 10pm on Friday until Saturday morning around 2am.
Francistown based Dinkwe Nkgoga Traditional troupe has partnered with the celebrated rhumba maestro Frank Lesokwane (Franco).
The immensely experienced Franco has brought the upcoming traditional troupe in a bid to boost them in the music industry.
While the traditional troupe is expected to gain more in terms of exposure in the industry, Franco will definitely benefit from the partnership.
The traditional troupe has been in the industry for a substantial period of time but has been finding it difficult to penetrate the market despite their talented dancers and singers.
The collaboration will result in Franco and the traditional troupe jointly recording videos.
The two partners have also been holding joint shows across the country.
Last Saturday night, Dinkwe Nkgoga and Franco made a colorful joint performance at the BOCCIM Hall in Francistown.
