President of Botswana Entertainment Promoters Association, Zenzele Hirschfeld, has hailed departed South African house legend Bojo Mujo as a talented humble musician who contributed to giving some local musicians exposure across the borders.

Hirschfeld was one of the locals who were accorded a slot to speak at Bojo Mujo’s memorial service, which was held at Eskia Mphahlele Library Hall in Pretoria last Friday. She spoke highly of Bojo Mujo, saying his interest in Botswana’s heritage and music was phenomenal. She said the late musician’s interest in developing, and giving local music exposure, was evidenced by his decision to re-mix Setswana folklore song Kulenyane and Vee’s Letlhale.

“He was a humble and talented vocalist, a linguist as well as a very experienced musician,” she said.  She said she was humbled when Bojo Mujo appreciated Zen Promotions’ efforts and contribution to his music’s exposure in Botswana, by awarding her a plague in 2010. “At the time, Bojo Mujo had sold platinum,” said the certified House Therapy agent.
