Publishing Date : 19 July, 2018


South African dancer and singer, Busiswa is set to headline the Boitumelo Foundation Concert which has been slated for August 25 at Duma FM grounds. The main purpose of the event is to support local arts and raised funds will be diverted to charity causes.

Busiswa is a South African House music singer who has worked alongside DJ Zinhle and also famous for her creative dance moves. Also a new-age performance poet and singer, Busiswa’s stage energy is infectious. She has been nominated for awards such as the MTV Africa Music Best Female and South African Music Awards (SAMA) for Best Female also. She has won a SAMA for Best Kwaito Album.

Boitumelo Foundation, whose mandate is to ensure the welfare of the less privileged, will also be hosting the event as a way of assisting in all possible ways in the promotion of music, dance, arts, sports and culture through national and international events in Botswana. In an interview with WeekendLife, Buggicity who is a technical partnr of the concert explained that this year’s Boitumelo Foundation Concert will have a theme of cross cultural engagement, which is a fusion of different cultures but on one platform.

“This will go a long way in highlighting having an inclusive and diverse people in Botswana,” he said. He further explained that they need everyone to step up and come on board hence why they had to tap into the youth audience as they make most of the country’s population. “We are hoping to raise 1 million, and we are reaching out to the public and corporate entities to assist as we want to better the lives of people in rural villages especially students,” he said.

He highlighted that they wanted to come up with something that can make people contribute money and at the same time allow them to enjoy themselves. The event will also be a fusion of local acts and international acts such as Han-C, Dj Kuchi, Charma Girl and many more. Tickets are P250

The Chief Executive officer of Choppies, Ramachandran Ottapathu explained to this publication that more organized events as this one are still yet to come and had further explained that he had personally sponsored the event.
The sole mandate of Boitumelo Foundation as a nonprofit organisation is to support deserving community development efforts mainly around education and healthcare in Botswana including charitable institutions.
