Today it�s me leaves audience emotional at Maitisong

Donald Molosi’s play titled, Today It’s Me left the audience emotional at Maitisong on Saturday night. The play was part of Maitisong Festival, which was officially launched on Wednesday.

The play follows the life of a Ugandan man called Phillip also known as Philly Lutaaya who was one of Africa’s most famous musicians in the 1980’s. It tells the story of how he used music to touch hearts and literally save lives.  Unfortunately, AIDS cut his life short in December 1989. He was buried in a white suit and gold watch.

The play started off as a memorial service for Lutyaaya where his mother played by Kgomotso Tshwenyego together with his fans, doctors and nurses told the story of his life. Lutyaaya was the first Ugandan artist to migrate to Sweden, and pursue his music career.
