The annual Maitisong festival is back with a bang. The festival is scheduled for April 22 to 26 at different venues around Gaborone.

Maitisong Festival Director, Gao Lemmenyane, said revellers will be spoiled for choice, with an exciting line-up, and a variety of events around town. “There will be free shows and paid shows to ensure that money is not an inhibiting factor.  Botswana’s own artistes who have achieved international acclaim are billed to perform at this year’s festival.  The international award winning Game ‘Zeus’ Bantsi will ‘bring it home’ to the Maitisong stage, the same stage that has contributed to the international award-winning artist that he is now,” he said.

He further said Botswana’s Broadway export, Donald Molosi, would premier his acclaimed theatre production Today It’s Me.  Based on the life story of the Ugandan musician Philly Bongole Lutaaya. The musical tells a story of courage and determination, which saved multitudes of people.
