The Botswana Musicians Union (BOMU) has clinched the deal to coordinate contemporary music festivities for Botswana’s 50th Anniversary, to be celebrated all over the country. The anniversary celebrations will begin this year until 2016.

Speaking at a BOMU event held at the newly finished Bptswana Nationa Youth Council (BNYC) headquarters, Phempheretlhe Pheto, the BOMU President, said contemporary music on September 30.  He said BOMU has been entrusted with a task to coordinate the event. Pheto said that they are currently drawing a line-up of performers.

BOMU will also coordinate the DJ’s music activities slated for September 25 across the country. He however  said that they are still negotiating with the Department of Arts and Culture to empower BOMU to coordinate the Presidential Music Awards too, which have since been taken from the umbrella bodies. The move follows after concerns over management of resources. Pheto said that they hope to convince the Department of Arts and Culture that BOMU can rectify past mistakes in the management of the Presidential Music Awards competitions.
