It’s fun-filled weekend

As the festive fever kicks into high gear, so is this weekend regarding events that one can attend to unwind and enjoy whatever it is that will be on show.

With corporations and companies looking to close down shop in the coming weeks for the festive holidays, the creative arts industry is busy looking to usher in the holidays in style and entertain people.

On Friday evening alone, music lovers will be spoilt for choice as they grapple with which show to attend and which one to miss and it surely will not be an easy decision.

Fans of both South African musicians Lira and Tshepo “The Vilage Pope” Tshola will have a hard choice on whom to go see and not to see, as the two international acts will be at different venues in Gaborone on the same night.

The popular Mascom Live Sessions hosted by BotswanaCraft will have Lira on its line up along with Samantha Mogwe, whilst Molapo Piazza will host none other than the legendary Tshepo Tshola.

Also on Friday evening one will also have a choice of seeing Sereetsi & The Natives CD launch at Maitisong, and that also promises to be a banger of a show.

Speaking in an interview, Tomeletso Sereetsi said it is his first CD and it has eight tracks.

“My album is called Four String Confessions and at the launch we will also have guest artists who will be performing,” he said, among them being Punah Gabasiane, Kagiso Mangole, Bonolo Molosiwa and Phopho Ponchi.

He indicated that tickets are already on sale, P200 in advance and P250 at the door.

“Tickets are available at Kgale Spar, Mochudi Spar, BBS, Riverwalk Info Centre and Maitisong Theatre,” he said.

Moving on from Friday to Saturday, one can make their way to The Pop-Up Shop Market Show and enjoy different kinds of food, music and fashion.

The event will be at Bojanala Waterfront and it will start at 10am till 7pm and an hour after it finishes revellers can opt to attend the after party at Cigar Lounge with the talented German Dollar on the ones and twos.

People should go out and support local so as to grow the industry and enjoy responsibly.
