The lineup for the first annual Ghanzi Winter Festival billed for 12th July at Hill-Talk Club is perhaps the most mouth watering since the St Louis Summer Splash.

Almost all the big names in the industry have been booked to perform.

BOMU Award winners Vee Mampeezy and Lizibo are the star headliners, including rapper A.T.I of “O tsididi” fame.

Some of the biggest names include Dr Tawanda, Bk Proctor and a host of DJs.

Notable DJs include Crispin The drummer, Eazy B, Rass, Lucy and Teaz. Cover charge for the festival is P100.


The annual Morobosi series-Maratyane Afro Festival is back this July at Goo-Moremi in the Tswapong hills.

The show has been slated for the 19th-20th. Maratyane Afro-Fest is a celebration of African culture and heritage through music (Traditional & contemporary), food and dance.

The show gives revelers an opportunity to explore the beauty of Goo-Moremi Gorge on a guided tour and later experience Tswapong traditional cuisine laced with “live performance by Shumba Ratshega”.

Later in the evening the heat would be turned on with sounds from the likes of Da Capo, Blaq Soul, Problem Child, Chrispin, Fondo and many other DJs. These include DJs from South Africa. Damage is P60.


Folklore artists Ntirelang Berman is working on his third album to be released soon.

His two previous albums ‘Maloba’ and ‘Kgolo’ catapulted the young man to music heights his peers can only dream of.

The winner of the Best Folklore BOMU award told Big Weekend that he is still working on the album and urged his followers and music lovers in general to be patient.

Berman’s music is unique, soothing and has seen him perform in places like Germany and China.

What could this talented-spiritual artist have for us in store? I can’t wait for this one.


For months Big Weekend was not happy that Kenny Latimore’s website did not mention anything about his show in Gaborone.

While www.kennylattimore.com had listed all the events the R & B star would be engaged in, there was nothing about the Gaborone gig.

However since last week, the website has been updated.

I was beginning to think Mr Lattimore ‘o re tsaa less than.’


If you have registered to vote and want to inform yourself of which party or individual to vote tune in to Gabz FM everyday from 1800hrs-2000hrs for the political debate.

Although BDP has boycotted the debate it would be unwise not to tune in even if you are a BDP member.

Young people in particular, give just two hours of your time daily to listen as politicians address issues which directly affect you.

You can always go back to that playlist, and continue that ‘Tapout-million dollar p*$**; but for now tune into Gabz FM.
