African HomeLodge uncovers ‘Go African’ lifestyle affair

Publishing Date : 26 November, 2019


As the world diversifies and lifestyles are modernized, people tend to forget their roots and their rich heritage, the one thing that gives us pride and speaks sternly of who we are and where we come from as a nation. Go African is one event that seeks to reinstate people to their roots and rich heritage.

Saturday the 23rd of November will see African culture, fashion and cuisine lovers at “Go African”, at the African Home Lodge in Gaborone. Coined simply as ‘The Ultimate African Lifestyle Event.’ This is a call for all traditional fashion and food lovers to experience a glimpse of our African delicacy and apparel. The first annual ‘Go African’ event aims to celebrate Pan-Africanism and a revival of African culture in the modern context, and is set to bring together Africans for a taste of Botswana cuisine, fashion and entertainment.

Speaking on behalf of the organizers, the Marketing Manager for African Home Lodge Maggie Motlogi said; “African Home Lodge is, as the name suggests, the home of African culture. We celebrate African décor, cuisine and entertainment on a daily basis, and believe that culture is dynamic and that traditional and modern African lifestyle can fully coexist to create a wonderful merger. “ Go African gathers people for a moment of bliss, where they can chill whilst experiencing food and culture from across Africa.

 “This event is just one of the ways in which we plan to share our love for our culture and Africanism, with our patrons and we encourage all members of the diaspora to come and enjoy an evening where we can share and exchange cultures from across the continent,’’ noted Motlogi. Live performances will feature the likes of the renowned and most sought after duo; KhoiSan and jazz fanatic Kearoma Rantao, and a host of other interesting cultural performances and enough music to serenade the evening.

“The event couldn’t have come at a more opportune time, with recent reports from international media reporting that Botswana has been found to be the origin of all humankind,” Motlogi expounded. Meanwhile, black people are known for their hate for their kind, which is proven by xenophobic attacks that keep taking reoccurring. Even so, Botswana is known for peace and reigning tranquility and this is one event that gathers all tribes in Africa and unite them with good music and food, imparting the spirit of oneness and unity.

“What a time to be alive, to be African and most importantly to be a Motswana. With this event we plan to share the spirit of Botswana in the context of Africa and we believe that this is a time for Africans to come together and unite as one. There is so much beauty we as Africans have, to share with the world and we at African Home will continue to champion this,” concluded Motlogi. The tickets for the Go African event are selling at P280 single, and P500 for a couple and tickets are available at Webtickets or at African Home. Tickets will also include a buffet of African cuisine featuring an array of the best African dishes.
