Lizibo serenades with Show them off



The month of love, February, seems to be very dear to the heart local Afro pop singer Lizibo.

This is evident with the just released remix single dubbed Show them off, Masunga born Lizibo has been launching his music lately only in February after releasing the popular album Malebeswa in February last year. In an interview with Vibe, Lizibo described the single as a spice that adds undeniable aroma to his hot sizzling album Malebeswa. In the song, Lizibo says that he is truly blessed to enjoy the love he gets from his lover.

The song that is about the importance of love and affection is chanted in a modern Niger like style. Lizibo noted that it is always a beautiful and exciting feeling to be bragged about by your lover. “Fa ole motho o tshwanetse wa ikgantsha ka motho wa gago (It is important to be proud of your significant other and show them off),” he said.

Lizibo further said that the single tries to depict that relationships can still get stronger even when they are in the public domain. “It is the month of love so we must allow relationships to flourish, the people must brag about their lovers because a healthy relationship is lovely to be engaged in,” he said.

Lizibo stated that Show them off, which was recorded at Key Note studios in Gaborone, is also a thank you gift to Batswana. “Since the release of Malebeswa I have been receiving unwavering support from across all corners of the country,” he said. Show them off can be downloaded through Amazon and ITunes.

Kalanga prince dazzles audience at wedding expo 

The Kalanga Prince as crooner Lizibo is also known, had the audience eating off the palm of his hand at the Grand Palm annual wedding expo fashion show held this past weekend. His performance was exceptional and befitting for the event, as he was also dressed for the occasion, clad in a maroon blazer with black jeans and maroon stylish shoes.

His dance moves all stunned people as they cheered him in appreciation. Lizibo highlighted that love is a beautiful thing and therefore encouraged people to always be kind towards one another, especially on this month of love. He also highlighted that people should learn to embrace all the artistes while they are still alive, saying that it is common that most artistes are recognised when they are no more.

He set off the record and performed Kgotla’s Matshidiso in an amazing way. He said that the man’s music is inspirational and he is one of the few that he respects. “Matshidiso is one of the good songs that played back in the days and everybody liked it, so I a performed it to honour Kgotla for this good job,” he said, reiterating that it is pleasant to recognise good work while still in life.

Lizibo, who always adds a twist of humour to his performances, and this occasion, was no different. He had everyone in the audience in stitches when he joked that he wishes to marry a taller woman, in order to ‘balance the ratio length’ of their kids. He said this as a man who played uncle, and selected a tall woman for him as they acted the part on the stage joined him. Lizibo, who has become to be known as a fashionista, closed his set dressed in a white outfit complete with snazzy white shoes.

Local artistes steal the show at GIMC concert

Keletso Thobega



La Timmy gave his best as usual and set the mood a notch higher with his upbeat sounds.Meanwhile, Boogie Sid took the crowd way back with a set reminiscent of the early 2000s. Robbie Rob and Brando also gave a fun set that had dancing along. Meanwhile, Sjava’s performance was quite tepid.

He didn’t seem excited to be on stage and his performance was bland from start to finish. Han C on the other hand was a fireball of energy and set the pace, proving that local is truly lekker. The Sedilaka star belted out in tune while also gyrating madly as if his life depended on it. Many sang along to his hits Mafura fura and Se-ileng.

South African rapper Nasty C also held his own fort and although his performance was nothing to write home about, he seemingly gave his fans their money’s worth as they cheered wildly. The Hell No hitmaker saved the popular song for last and everyone sang along to the jam with a catchy hook.

Another energetic performer was Master KG who has been making waves recently. His unique sound, a mix of kwaito, mosakaso had many wiggling and jiggling as if they have ants in their pants. The Situation and Skeleton hitmaker and his dancers churned infectious dance moves throughout their performance.

Meanwhile, Lady Zamar churned hits such as Collide, Criminal, Charlotte and My Baby among others, as she showed off her well-choreographed dance moves. Prince Kaybee was in his usual element and while it was not his best night, most revellers enjoyed the house tunes, especially the hit Club Controller, which can make even the most uptight person lose their morals and hump and bump in the air.

One of the revellers Tshidiso Mokaila said she had enjoyed the concert. “It was chilly but the whole show was well-organised, from the sound to security. It was my first time here and I had the time of my life. I will definitely come again next year,” she said. Another reveller who only identified himself as Tshepo said that the popularity of the bash seemed to be declining but said he was impressed that the organisers had beefed up security this time around.

“We had fun knowing that our cars are safe. The performances were just OK but I think that the no cooler box policy turned off many people especially as there was only one beer on sale and no ciders.” The MCs for the night Loungo, Sadi and Somizi did a sterling job and kept revellers in a party mood. While the previous editions were much better than this year’s instalment, there were few incidents this time around. Revellers let their hair down and partied the night away until the wee hours of the morning.

The sky is the limit for Ginah Molodi



In what started as only a mere passion for music at the age of (11) for Ginah Tinah Molodi, it has now changed into a big reality as she recently featured in one of the most decorated DJ in Botswana Boineelo Othusitse known as DJ Bino in a single house-track dubbed Ke Mosadi. Growing up, 23-year-old Molodi was a vital member of the Praise and Worship at her church.

In a recent interview with Vibe, Molodi said that her mother had always encouraged her to give her best. “My late mother has always been my mother, a role model, a best friend, an instigator and that really kept going because she motivated me,” she said.

The Mmadinare born aspirant artiste made her first major appearance in one of the Botswana Television (BTV) talent show called My African Dream before deciding to try her luck on this year’s My Star Show, “I have always dreamt of joining My Star from the moment it started broadcasting on BTV and I only got join this year because I wanted to share my talent with Botswana as I always believed in my singing and the talent that got has given me. Winning would have been a great bonus to me,” she said.

Molodi further reiterated on her current main enthusiast who is apparently her aunt. “The one person who was always behind me is my aunt Thusano Moseki, she has always been my biggest fan and she used to call me at my tenure at My Star wanting to find out whether I chose either the right song or rehearsed well and stuff and that really motivated me a lot as she strongly believed in me,” she said.
Molodi said being eliminated in the My Star Top 12 had not deterred her as she went on to release a single. “I did not win at My Star but that never really discouraged me because I have so many people that believe in me. I decided to do a single titled Ke Mosadi which is basically a personal song and it celebrates a women from her phenomenal transition from a young to a women with a massive help from DJ Bino as my producer,” she said.
Meanwhile, DJ Bino said that Molodi’s brother had sent him her audio. “When I first heard that our home girl is currently at My Star, I told her brother to send me the audio and she was amazing. I promptly decided to start working with her.
She did not win maybe because sometimes the judges do not see what we see as producers hence I took liberty to do a song with her because I appreciate her talent,” he said. DJ Bino added that Molodi still had a long way to go as she will soon be working with big names such as Odirile ‘Vee’Sento, Busi (Malawi) to push her promising music career to greater heights. DJ Bino also confirmed that he was working on dropping his 2nd album, which will be titled The Journey.
