ATI pushes back World War III (WW3)


Award-winning rapper Atlasaone ‘ATI’ Molemogi disappointed many after he announced that his first inaugural event World War III (WW3) has been postponed to March next year.

ATI made the announcement on Tuesday on his various social network profiles prior to going on radio where he also announced that the music concert scheduled for Christmas Day in Serowe has been postponed to March 16 in Gaborone.  “We would like to also announce that due to unforeseen circumstances and various factors including other events scheduled for December 25, 2015, we decided to cancel the project,” he said.

This coming festive season there will be a number of events lined up in Serowe with many clashing with the day that WWW3 had been slated for. Justifying some of the reasons why he had to postpone and change venues ATI said, “So that we can allow companies that wanted to sponsor us a chance to do so plus move it to a date where our chances of success could be high”.

He believes moving the event to Gaborone will make him create a new success story as he stated that will clean his name from the court scandals that he has been recently involved in.

ATI came up with the concept of WWW3 after he parted ways with the Pop Bottles annual event that takes place in Serowe.  He went all out to promote WW3 as he had branded his car with a number of musicians such as Mr Mollz and Noello also branding their cars with the WW3 tags. He said he will keep his followers updated about the dates and exact venue for the WW3 music concert.

He also announced that his sophomore album Envelope will be released on Christmas Day.  He said: “It’s going to be sold on Xmas and official declaration of sale is January 30, 2016”. He gave his fans an opportunity to listen to some of the tracks on the album as he sampled them on Yarona FM during DJ Izzy and Tshepie’s show. The sound on Envelope is totally different from the usual ATI style of music. The beats are more mature and this time around he eliminated the pop sound in the beats.

He worked with producers such as Favi, Spryt, Lif Aman and RRisq on his sophomore album. As a way of promoting  Envelope he has been constantly releasing cover tracks from different artists with the latest one being Adele’s Hello.
