Lizibo blows away Presidentís Day audience


Pint sized Afro pop sensation, Lizibo Simon, astounded the audience with his electrifying performance at the President’s Day fashion show held at Boipuso Hall on Monday night.

The musician, who was backed by a live band, started his performance on a laidback note, only to unleash exciting acts and medleys.  Lizibo started off singing his popular song Mosadi, which talks about a young man asking his uncle to help him get a wife.

While performing, the soulful song he started fishing for a beautiful woman from the audience. After a while, one pretty lady caught his eye and he asked her to join him on stage. He gave her a chair to sit on and continued to serenade the shy looking lady.

The crooner closed this impromptu act with what was dubbed a proposal stunt by singing K- Ci and JoJo’s 90s hit track All My Life to the lady. After the act, he accompanied the woman back to her seat and gave her a copy of his CD.  When he returned onto the stage, he shouted to his band, “Let’s go to Jamaica,” upon which they began singing Lucky Dube’s Together as one.

He also sang Bob Marley’s One love, encouraging the audience to unite despite of their differences or challenges they may have.

Two dancers accompanied the musician, pulling off different electric dance moves inspired by the late King of Pop Michael Jackson.

Shanti Lo and rising star Gaone Rantlhoiwa also serenaded the audience with their music. Rantlhoiwa, sampled a number of tracks from her upcoming debut album including the top chart track Kopisa, backed by Mafitlhakgosi cultural troupe.
