Kalahari-the rising Afro-pop sensation


Four years ago, Katlego Tau from Morokolane in Borolong, arrived in Gaborone with nothing but a dream to record an album.

He had read about producers Bullet Ketshabile and Robert Dargie in newspapers and saw them being credited on several album sleeves. He had a strong belief that in order for him to make it as a musician he would have to work with one.

Unfortunately, he had no idea where to find either of the two popular producers but was lucky to get Afro-pop ace Astley Gops’ number who then led him to Ketshabile. His dream of becoming a musician took shape a few months later when he released an Mpaxanga album as Professor Lion, a name derived from his surname.
