Anna Fiki: A true warrior fighting for life and love

Among Botswana's old generation of folklore musicians is Anna Fiki Ditau, a visually impaired artist.

This is the powerful voice behind the soulful track Mpolelle re babedi, which has been a constant feature on many local radio stations for so many years and still continues to rear forward in various music programmes.  Anna Fiki, as she is popularly known to her legion of fans and ordinary radio listeners, is among the favourite voices on radio. Her most popular song is a cajoling script of a woman who enjoys the attention she gets from a man who proposes love to her.

She is a free flowing soul who easily relates with any person she gets into contact with, which is why it is easy to tell how the song was born. She is a cheerful character whose positive energy would easily rub off onto those associated with her or anyone who converses with her.  Despite her loveless, troubled childhood and a generally ill-fated adulthood, Anna Fiki is a bubbly music woman whose abundant humour far outweighs the tragic life she has endured since she was a toddler.
