South Africa’s house music heavyweight Zakes Bantwini and local Pop sensation Jujuboy left fans wanting for more at 2018’s first Mascom Live Sessions.
Despite the weekend proving to be a very eventful with various shows around Gaborone, fans did not disappoint as they thronged Botswana Craft in good numbers. Organizers had revealed prior to the show that it was specially produced for those who love dance and getting down. The event was also made a bit more special by the fact that it was the first time Zakes Bantwini performed in the country in six years, while on the other end it was also the first time Jujuboy performed with a live band.
Jujuboy was the first to light up the stage as he opened his performance with one of his all-time best hits including Motho o Bolaya Motho, to the delight of female revelers. He then proceeded to singing his latest offering from his upcoming album How Many Lovers. Things would then get heated up, as he performed Hurt Me, where he invited one female fan to the stage and tied her to a chair for a lap dance.
Jujuboy closed off his set with a well-directed performance of his hit single Follo for which he was joined by Amantle Brown, sending fans into a frenzy.
The night was not over yet as the main headline act Zakes Bantwini took to the stage and was greeted by a bumping and charged up crowd.
He opened his set with the hit song Wasting My Time, followed by Bum Bum. It was not only his singing that kept the crowd glued to the stage but also his dance moves.
He would then give a friendly lecture to the ladies, in saying they should always date guys who love house music because it is a genre for real gentlemen and they are never clumsy even in their dancing.
His last two songs on stage, Ghetto followed by Clap Your Hands literally had everyone on their feet and getting it down. At the end of his performance he appreciated everyone who had come to watch him and said he hoped he would return to Botswana in the near future.
