A number of local artists, media and friends thronged the Sedibeng Lodge in Gaborone on Tuesday night to support their fellow brother in the local music industry, Obakeng Sengwaketse.

For the very first time, Sengwaketse who goes by the stage name Obakeng treated his family, friends and colleagues with beautiful melodies from his new album Ho Tseba Modimo, leaving the audience mesmerised.

The album has 13 tracks in which the 34-year-old singer from Kanye collaborated with other artists.

His immense talent and composition of songs has brought a new touch in local gospel music.
