Local Muvhango star to launch talk show

Publishing Date : 19 August, 2019


Known warmly to be playing the role of Seretse on the South African soapie, Muvhango, Maxwell Dichi’s talk show will premiere on September 7 at Maitisong Theatre. The show, which is termed ‘The Maxwell Dichi show,’ will be giving a platform to people who have made an impact in Botswana.


The Maxwell Dichi Talk show was started as a blog two years ago where several local prominent individuals were interviewed.  Local motswako artist Atlasaone ATI Molemogi, the transgender activist, Tshepo Kgositau, were amongst the few who got interview in the show, attracting 15 000 viewership. “I had to grow the same show. I want to take it to a higher and I am taking it from just a talk show to a show that has an audience and a wrap-up performance by a local artist, Dramaboi,” he explained to WeekendLife.  The premiere of the show will afford a platform to one of the senior citizen to be interviewed on national issues.


“We are going to interview them about life as well as what they think of the current status of politics even to give an advice to the country. We will also allow people who have made impact in the country in the show, people who are well known and people who are not known,” he said. The Maxwell Dichi show will take place once in a month, though there is no any television platform at the moment, he said he is willing to take on board that opportunity should it cross his path. “Our long term vision is for the show to play in a popular channel every day. Right now we do not need it as much as we are going to use our online platforms because they are even more powerful than our channels here. What we want is for the show to be popular and not with the channels and if they are interested then they can buy the content,” he said.


The show targets everyone who want to be inspired and is very much interested in hearing the stories of Batswana. “There are people who have beautiful stories and they have to be recognised. We have legends in our country. We just want to tell people that we have great stories. There are many legends we have never heard from. Batswana have many stories to say but are afforded few platform. The show can document our history,” he said. “It is not a topic based show but it is on a person. It will be a conversation, the main focus is to tell the untold stories of Batswana.”


Tickets are selling at P150 and they are available at Webtickets and Maitisong.
