Groovy industry mourns “Tops” Masole

  • The larger-than-life groovy mogul will be laid to rest at Mokubilo on Saturday
  • Memorial service today to be streamed live on Facebook and other social media platforms

The creative and entertainment industry woke up to news of the passing away of legendary promoter and businessman, Mosupi “Tops” Masole, last Sunday.
Aged 62, Masole passed away at Princess Marina Hospital in Gaborone where he was admitted on Tuesday last week.
Masole, who was a founding member of the Botswana Entertainment Promoters Association (BEPA), was a veteran promoter, having been in the business for over three decades.
Tops – as he was called in his jolly circles – was a well-known larger-than-life figure who groomed and worked with many music entertainers. The entertainment mogul founded the popular Trekkers Night Club in Maun which later grew its footprint to Gaborone and Mochudi.
In 2019, Tops hosted a farewell session at Bojanala Waterfront to announce his retirement from the music industry which he had helped keep alive for many years.
The entertainment industry has rallied to come together to give Masole a befitting send-off today (Wednesday 17 February 2021) at BotswanaCraft in Gaborone from 4pm to 6pm. However, due to COVID-19 health protocols, only 50 people will be allowed to attend the memorial service that will be streamed live on the BEPA Facebook page and other social media platforms.
He will be laid to rest at Mokubilo Village on Saturday 20 February 2021.
