SOTS returns after a year break

Premium cultural spectacle Son of The Soil (SOTS) is back this year at Serokolwane Lawns on March 2 after a year break. After so much backlash and feedback in the past events, the organisers Bana Ba Mmala have announced that they have now outsourced the hosting of this year’s showpiece to Freshbrands, who will do the organising.

Bana Ba Mmala chairperson, Pontsho Pusoetsile admitted to the media this week that following the feedback they received, they were not sure if they had the right skill set to push the event to greater heights.

“We felt that we need to invite a partner to work with us. We want them to take us to the global stage, therefore we are going to aggressively market the event both locally and internationally,” he said.  Pusoetsile said they would structure the event so that it can continue to grow. He said SOTS is the only participatory event that they know. “In 2017, we introduced the kgotla system as a way of pushing people to continue participating,” he said.

Pusoetsile said as Bana Ba Mmala they pride themselves in having a key interest in Botswana culture and making sure that there is a dress code for the event.  “We also make sure that consumption of alcoholic drinks is done in a traditional looking cup,” he said.

their theme ‘kwa re go yang’ until 2024 having started it in 2015.  “It is meant for Motswana to introspect and see which elements of their culture to carry into the global village,” he said.

 Pusoetsile said SOTS is an event that sells culture. He said the sub theme ‘re ipela’ is meant to convey that as they journey forward they should look towards a brighter future.

Pusoetsile announced that besides the main event on Saturday, they would host the Pitso workshop on February 22, Metswaiso evening cultural night on March 1 and the Jazz event on Sunday March 3.  He was also quick to announce that food will be bought at the event just like in the last event in 2017. He also emphasised that the dress code is any cultural outfit and jeans are strictly not allowed.  The ticket is sold at P250 for adults and P100 for children under the age of 12.
