The Gaborone High Court has knocked multi-award-winning contemporary folk musician, Tomeletso Sereetsi, a blow after dismissing his case with costs against producer, David Letshwiti, of the African Attire on Fleek event.

Sereetsi and Letshwiti have been involved in a legal battle over a performance contract that went sour in 2021 and 2022.

In a ruling delivered on February 23, Justice Chris Gabanagae of the High Court ruled in favour of Letshwiti, dismissing Sereetsi’s case on a technical point. According to the court papers, Sereetsi, through his musical band, Sereetsi and The Natives and Letshwiti had entered into a contract for musical performances at various shows in Gaborone (November 13, 2021, March 5 2022), Francistown (11 December), Maun (April 17) and Serowe/Palapye (September 24). In terms of the agreement, the defendant (Letshwiti) was under obligation to effect the payment to the plaintiff in full, seven days before any scheduled event. Sereetsi told the court that because the parties had agreed on the dates, the band reserved the dates for the event and thus did not take any bookings on those dates in anticipation that they were booked for the African Attire On Fleek event.
