Kwabatsha, Botswana DJ to shoot Magitare video


TRAIL-BLAZING Bulawayo-based dance and music outfit Kwabatsha of the Zwangu Zwamuka-Bhatshi fame will next month embark on a video shooting project for Magitare-Ebumnandini, one of their hottest house jams currently making waves in Botswana and South Africa.


Kwabatsha whose focus was initially on traditional genré stormed into the music industry in 2012 taking music lovers by surprise with their single Bhatshi, a house music solo which set the showbiz industry aglow.

Last year the group continued to nurture its music talent, by collaborating with South African producer Tabeka Siphe and Botswana’s enterprising female disc-jockey Laninah Benz on Magitare, a groovy jam which has gone viral in Internet music stores.

Apparently mesmerised by the potential of Magitare, Kwabatsha and the Botswana diva Benz, together with Cape Town producer Siphe, have embarked on a project to compile a video for Magitare with Benz already making tours around her home country Botswana to promote the hit track.

Kwabatsha dance company director Trust Madolo told Southern Eye Lifestyle that the video will be shot in Gaborone’s Ozone Mahalapye.

“We are shooting the video in Ozone Mahalapye in Botswana,” the innovative artiste said.

“The video has a groovy set-up and the script was done by Tebeka Siphe from Cape Town.”

Madolo revealed they were working towards compiling the much-awaited video for solo hit Bhatshi while he appealed for financial assistance from promoters.

“We are appealing for help from well-wishers and promoters so that our project succeeds. And plans to shoot the much-awaited Bhatshi video are afoot,” he said.
