The last leg of the Tlatsa Lebala appreciation events, Tlatsa Maun will be hosted this Saturday at Maun Sports Complex.
The event, which was supposed to be held last month, was postponed after the event organisers failed to secure and book some artists on time. A local line-up, which will headline the event, was put up early this week by the organisers.

This time around the event is dominated by urban music acts such as Scar, La Timmy, Kast, HT, Tautona, Chef Gustos, DJ Guyvos and Sly. “We booked artists according to how relevant they are and if we are able to afford them in terms of bookings.”
Tickets for the event are already on sale at different outlets in Maun.
