Tawana Ya Koma, the son to the late traditional song and dance legend, Gong Master, has collaborated with events promoter, Dops Baipidi to host an occasion to celebrate the departed artist's life.

The event called Segopotso Sa Tau Ya Koma will be held at Camel Thorn in Ranaka on October 26, 2024.

Born Mponang Ketshabile, Gong Master died last year at the age of 50 due to a stroke. In an interview with Arts&Culture, Baipidi explained that the event is about celebrating the life of the late artist and also unveil his tombstone. He further explained that the idea of hosting the event came about after the realisation that most of the time when local legends/icons passed on, people tend to forget about them and move on with their lives. “In this context we want to continue Gong Master’s legacy. The event will start in the morning by unveiling the tombstone then later on there will be the celebration and remembrance of his legacy.
