VOUCHING FOR TUMZA AND CO
Legendary ‘Thobane’ hit-maker Dr Vom has called on Vee Mampeezy to include two of Francistown’s biggest entertainers, Tumza and the duo of Madala and KellyJess, in his Last Man Standing show later this year.
Set for Saturday 4 November at the Game City Roof Top, Vee has already announced the likes of Sun El Musician, Vom and Chef Gustos in the line-up.
Regarded as the originator of the ‘Gorilla dance’, despite his obvious talent, Tumza remains one of the most underrated artists in the country. Very few can match his energy on stage.
Madala and his partner and fiancé, KellyJess, meanwhile, have created quite a name for themselves down the years. They are a big brand and would be a valuable addition to the show. Big up Dr Vom, Grooving in the Ghetto approves.
O-TOWN’S BIG PARTY
The Cool Down Festival at Itekeng Stadium in Orapa this Saturday may go down as one of the biggest in the mining town’s long history.
Taking place after the annual OLDM General Manager’s Charity Walk, the diamond-studded line-up is enough to pull the biggest crowd anywhere in the country. To have Franco, ATI, Charma Gal and Culture Spears under one roof is insane. Now add the allure of Paige, Ntate Stunna, DJ Ngwazi, Han C, Ezra Neethings and Khoisan, and you surely have yourself a sold-out event. Forget cool down’s, this is more like red hot; what a way to welcome summer! Tickets are on sale for P200.
GHETTO SPRING FEST
With the weather noticeably warmer, Spring is surely on the horizon. For fun-lovers in the second city this can only mean one thing: the Ghetto Spring Festival is around the corner. Set for Molapo Leisure Gardens on 23 September, the family fun day’s fourth installment starts in the morning at 10am, culminating with a all night music festival that continues until 6am the next day.
An initiative of DJ Phat T of Ghetto Phat Sounds, activities during the day include quad bikes, horse riding, beach volleyball, food competition, aerobics, darts, chess, snooker, PlayStation and many others.
Singer Priscilla K will be one of the star performers on the night. Tickets are selling for P100 (early bird), P120 at the gate, P200 for VIP and P40 for kids.
