FRANCISTOWN: Even rain could not stop hordes of people who were dancing and cheering to both local and South African acts at the Toropo ya Muka ‘Summer Yedu Edition’ music festival.
The mega festival headlined by South African talented musicians, Simmy and Sun-El Musician has over the years gained popularity. Simphiwe Nhlangulela, stage name Simmy, and Sanele Sithole popularly known as Sun-El Musician, had the attendants singing along to their songs, Higher and Emakhaya which has over 3 million views on YouTube.

After her performance, Simmy told ShowTime that the people of Francistown were amazing and she is definitely coming back for more entertainment this side. Popular SA and Botswana’s very own DJ Fresh also spiced up the show with his magic on the deck. Local popular group, Khoisan, who performed just moments after Sun-El Musician, belted their popular tunes such as Sethubege, Mpoledise and Nkukuretse, threw the audience into frenzy. The duo came prepared for the performance as they dazzled the crowd with high level well-choreographed unique dance moves.
