If there is somebody who has proven that hard work and dedication eventually pay dividends it is Chabo Butale also known as DJ Chabo who has risen from obscurity to become one of the most respected and recognised house DJs in Botswana.

Showbiz had a chat with this DJ whose instant success has seen him being a much sought-after entertainer nationwide."I started developing the passion for deejaying while I was still at junior school.  Whenever I attended a party with my mates, instead of dancing, I would often go up to the DJ and observe him spinning at the decks and that's how I learnt the art," the 23-year-old from Makaleng told Showbiz.  His passion for deejaying pushed him to plead with his older brother, Kennedy, to buy a music set for hiring out in 2009 and this enabled him to practise as much as he could in the confines of his room.

At some point, DJ Chabo was part of the Truly Botlhoko team of DJs, which is now defunct and he remains the only active DJ out of the crew.The marketing student at Damelin says that his greatest breakthrough came in 2011 when he met well-known DJ Gouveia who invited him to play a set with him at a house party in Gaborone West and the rest, as they say, is history.
