- Music concert to feature legendary Koffi Olomide
- Charma Gal to be first female artist to stage a concert at the National Stadium
Queen of Msakazo Magdeline Lesolebe – better-known as Charma Gal – will stage a show styled “Kgosi ya Mosadi in Concert” at the National Stadium in Gaborone on 29 October this year.
Making the announcement herself on Monday this week, Charma Gal said another music heavyweight, Congolese rumba singer Koffi Olomide, will feature in the highly-anticipated music concert that has been the subject of much speculation for some time.
“The aim is to access international markets because we are crowded in the local market,” said the Sekuta hit maker. “By featuring Koffi, I hope we have access to those markets so we also make way for upcoming artists.”
The announcement also ended the supposition that the veritable crowd puller’s event would be a one-woman show.
With a huge fan base worldwide, Koffi Olomide is an influential music giant. To capture the Congolese (DR) for Kgosi ya Mosadi in Concert is by itself a coup by which Charma Gal aims to capitalise on his massive fan base before they embark on scheduled activation tours of Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia.
Charma Gal will be making history as the first female artist in Botswana to stage a music show at the National Stadium. The pioneering show is organised by Charma Gal Productions and Lesh T Entertainment.
“We are working tirelessly to see the event come to fruition,” she said. “Without a doubt the show will contribute immensely to the economy as a whole value chain will benefit. Charma Gal needs no introduction in this male-dominated field and we want to see the stadium packed to capacity.”
The organisers are still working on the local lineup that will be announced in due course. Lesego Tikologo of Lesh T Entertainment noted that the families of Charma Gal’s dancers who died in tragic road accident in 2016 will also benefit from proceeds of Kgosi ya Mosasdi in Concert.
