It was very embarrassing to see negative comments by Batswana on Facebook and twitter who were momentarily happy that Kaone was evicted from the Big Brother 5 house last Sunday. All of them wish it was Warona in the house. They all must have been thouroughly embarrassed when Big Brother revealed that it was a fake eviction and that K-1 had to return to the house. As it turned out, he did not get a single nomination on Monday and will survive for at least another week. Hannington, Sammi and Uti are up for eviction. Unfortunately Monnamogolo has to follow the show on the internet since I cannot afford to subscribe!


Octave Record Company is one of the fastest growing record companies in the country. Thanks to artists like Osadi. The rising gospel music queen has just released a fine eight track album, A Mpitsa, comprising of tunes like Mangihambe Naw, A Re Rataneng, We Bless Your Name, O A Re Rata, A Mpitsa, Kuwe Nkosi, Lentswe and Dinku Tsame. The producers, Daniel Njoroge and Tshepo, took the tried and tested route of beats and rhythms associated with Botswana gospel music that was introduced by the likes of Phepheretlhe way back in the 90’s. This album gets 7 stars out of 10 from yours truly! Monnamogolo. For album/DVD reviews call 72842046!


Diamond Studios has allegedly been closed down and relocated back to Zimbabwe. The once very ambitious studio and recording company has however left a long lasting memory in the hearts of music lovers as it has over the last two years been home of some of the top artists in the country. The likes of Jeff Matheatau, Chri Manto 7Ven and Tselakgopo have all recorded albums there. It closes down just as a new Mpaqanga group, Makau, released its debut album, Tanki Ya Motswana. Produced by Tawanda, the trio has some of the most hilarious lyrics in songs like Dallas, Rra Khombi and the title track, Tanki Ya Motswana. It gets a 6 out of ten stars from yours truly!



Love it or hate, Botswana music is surviving despite the drastic drop in sales. Thanks to the resilience and aspirations of budding new musicians like Sanyane(Ghost, Kwana, Tladi, Adrejane and Tibe), our culture is continually been saved in recorded songs. The new group’s album has songs with positive tswana culture messages like Diane, Tshwana, Tladi, Mmanaana and Bolela. Produced at Chankieland Studios by Phemelo Mokgweetsi, Phemo Mokgweetsi, Earnest Seakgosing, Florent Nawej-Kaleng and Patrick Mogapi. It gets seven stars out of 10 from yours truly. To get your CD/DVD reviewed on this page, call 72842046 or drop your CD/DVD at The Voice offices in Commerce Park!



This has to be Monnamogolo’s surprise album of the week. Makgoa a re do not judge a book by  its cover. When I picked up this CD from The Voice office on Monday, I almost immediately dismissed it due to its somewhat sub-standard packaging. Tshidi could have done much better with the sleeve if she had spent a few more hundred bucks. However, the music is so sweet and kind to the ear. Tunes like Ketla Iphelela, Johana, Pelo Tulo, Lebitso, Thuso, Ikgethele, Bethlehem and Modimo Wa Lorato may convert even the die hard non believers. I found myself listening to this album on repeat for about two hours. I may well be getting converted too, lol…get yourself a copy of this album, it gets seven stars out of 10 from yours truly!
