The Monitor :: Trompies Kickstart Oldies' Series








The much-anticipated event will also feature local acts such as Wizards of the Desert of phokoje and koko fame as well as DJ Boogie Sid.

 According to event promoter Lecco Kenosi, Waar Was Jy Oldies’ Series is debuting and bringing back Spikiri, Mahoota, Jakarumba, Mjokes and Donald Duck. “To fit into the atmosphere, people are encouraged to come dressed in style, with a little of ‘90s look’. With their brightly coloured costumes and streetwise singing and dancing, Trompies have risen to the upper echelon of South African pop music,” he said.

Their records have sold more than half a million copies while their hits like thalakele, selling more than 40,000 copies. Their 1997 single, magasman, recorded with the late Lebo Mathosa of Boom Shaka fame became a national anthem and has been featured on the soundtracks of

three South African films.

Their record label, Kalawa Jazmee, which they launched with disc jockey Oscar Mdlongwa and producer Don Laka in 1996, is one of the most successful black-owned record companies in South Africa. The Trompies’ albums have featured guest appearances by such leading South African artists as Cindy from Sarafina and Stoan from Bongo Muffin.

The members of the group grew up together in a Soweto and agreed to form a brand after they had all completed their music studies at college.

According to Kenosi, the aim is to have the series on Fridays, and have a local and international act perform at Botswana Craft. Tickets are selling for P300 at Botswanacraft. In 2015, Kenosi hosted Kwaito heavyweights from Arthur Mafokate, Doc Shebeleza and Ishmael. He also brought the Jaiva sexy hit maker, Chomee.
