GIMC Jazz festival lives up to hype


A number of Jazz music fans thronged Molapo Showcase Piazza on Saturday night for the Gaborone International Music Festival and Cultural week (GIMC) Jazz Festival where they were treated to endless beautiful old school music by talented local DJs. Even though it was a bit chilly in the evening, many revellers did not disappoint and they were dressed for the occasion.

Each individual unleashed their character through their fashion sense. The women looked stunning through either their jeans or leggings paired with shirts, blouses and t-shirts while others chose to spice things a bit with head wraps and hats coupled with jewelleries. The men also made sure they dressed for the occasion. Hosted in an open space, the nice cool breeze and the beautiful music made the whole event perfect. Additionally, MC Leungo Pitse's energy lit up the venue and kept the audience captivated. Both local and international artists set to perform on the day added some magic to the event. They gave it their all and kept the audience engaged, singing along and dancing the night away. Among the beautiful performances was that of local jazz legends, Banjo Mosele and Socca Moruakgomo whose performances took the older generation at the event back to their youthful days.

However, the younger generation also enjoyed and sang along their magical melodies. At it is a norm, South African artists Zonke and Vusi Nova made their fans proud too. They made sure they gave them a memorable performance. The beautiful and talented Zonke, who was full of energy, treated her die-hard fans to some of her beautiful songs such as Viva The Legend, Say Now, Uyadithanda, Best Days of My life, Tonight, Feelings and Jiki'zinto. She also brought her band along. The energy they displaced on stage was quite mesmerising. On the other hand, delivering the event's last performance on a high note, Vusi Nova treated his fans to some of his popular songs such as Nkosi Sihlangene, Asphelelanga, Ndicede, Ndikuthandile and many more. The event was surely worth every penny the audience paid as it delivered its promises. Added to that, the security was also top notch as a number of security guards who were present at the event made sure people's assets were protected.
