The Monitor :: BDP Blesses Tebbie With P1. 4M








The exhibition is scheduled for the National Museum today and President Ian Khama is set to officially launch it

Tebbie although, was constrained to reveal the figures, The Monitor is reliably informed that she pocketed P1.4 million for her efforts. She could only say she was happy with the deal, thanking the BDP for valuing her experience and talent.

“I cannot tell you how much I have pocketed, but do know that I am very happy with the deal. I can’t complain. They have given me what I am worth and I really thank them and all the costs for recording the album were taken care of by the party,” Tebbie said.

The album, which was released Wednesday after it was recorded in South Africa, has six tracks all paying tribute to the BDP legacy as well as sloganeering. Some songs are dedicated to the BDP’s four presidents as the country celebrates 50th anniversary. In 2012 the BDP commissioned Tebbie to produce their 50th anniversary music following another hugely successful BDP-funded music project for the party ahead of

the 2009 elections. She was also funded to produce a BDP victory celebration album after the 2009 elections.

After the 2009 elections victory, Tebbie also worked with the party’s 40 MPs to produce victory albums for their constituencies, although that project was partly paralysed by the BDP split that gave birth to the Botswana Movement For Democracy.

In 2011, Tebbie was also engaged by the party’s women’s wing to produce a music project for them.

She was nowhere to be found for the 2014 BDP’s music project that had the likes of Vee, afro pop singer Punah Gabasiane and trumpeter Socca Moruakgomo taking centre stage.

BDP BOT50 Committee chairman Comma Serema said: “Yes I can confirm working with Tebbie on our party’s BOT50 musical project, but I am not the party’s spokesperson. I am not commissioned to talk about this. I am BOT50 BDP’s chairman”.

The BDP secretary general, Botsalo Ntuane could not be reached for comment as he was said to be in a series of meetings when The Monitor tried contacting him on his mobile phone.
