Bouga Luv Brings The House Down

The Waar Was Jy Oldies Series had pitted the best of Kwaito music under one roof Friday night, but it was Kabelo ‘Bouga Luv’ Mabalane who brought the house down. The show was headlined by South Africa’s kwaito pioneers, Boom Shaka, alongside Bouga Luv, and Botswana’s very own Mapetla.

The Monitor :: Bouga Luv Brings The House Down








With over two decades of absence from the local scene, Boom Shaka coming with Thembi Seete, Junior Sokhela and Theo Nhlengethwa were the crowd pullers and fan favourites. However, it was Bouga Luv who seemed to have the crowd eating from his palm as he gave an energetic performance.

Not that Mapetla and Boom Shaka were bad because Thembi Seete gave it all with her electrifying moves, but Bouga Luv seemed to get the ‘luv’ from the crowd who sang along and danced to every song that he performed.

The Waar Was Jy Oldies Series, unknown for attracting bad publicity, seemed to be chaotic from the start as it started way after the scheduled time of 7pm. Known for pulling large crowds at their previous events at Botswanacraft Marketing, this time it was just a sizeable crowd. The show looked to be destined to turn into dumb squib probably because of the low attendance, but the performances of the artists including DJ 88 brought life to the show. But as the resident Deejay, Dj 88 played some of the old kwaito

tunes of yesteryears, people filtered slowly into the venue.

He warmed up the stage for local boy Mapetla, who was also coming from a self imposed exile. Mapetla performed alongside P-Mag and they seemed to bring the spark necessary to ignite life into the show.

They performed songs Shaya Ma Get Down, Aah and Jorotane much to the delight of the night crawlers who had now gathered closer to the stage. Next on stage was Bouga Luv, who took the tempo to the next level. Tune after tune, he got everyone dancing.

He got the love, and you could see fans were asking for more when he left the stage. Maybe the people who attended this past weekend’s Waar Was Jy Oldies Series did not appreciate Boom Shaka’s music, but Bouga Luv was the ‘darling’ of the night.

Boom Shaka, without Lebo Mathosa who died in a car accident in 2006 was luke-warm save for Thembi Seete’s dancing. Overall, the first Waar Was Jy Oldies Series of 2019 provided Gaborone with old memories of the time when kwaito music was fashionable.
