Speaking at a media briefing on Friday, the festival organiser, Lecco Kenosi said after a three-year break, they brought back the series with a bigger and better plan.
“We sat down as Waar WasJy and decided to come up with ideas to put Botswana first,” he said. Lecco said they then identified BSD as a way to give back to the community.
He said they have reserved 100 corporate tickets worth P1,000 each and the money would go straight to the donation.
Lecco said although there are no VIP tickets, corporate tickets holders will get a chance to interact with Yvonne Chaka Chaka.
“Yvonne is expensive but she only agreed to lower her price and do this because it is for charity. She does charitable gestures across Africa and she was happy to be part of this,” he said.
cannot always depend on the government for support, we should take the first step,” he said.
For his part acting director of BSD Kabelo Seadimo said they are excited to be part of Waar WasJy.
“With this partnership we hope to tap into their network and market our organisation,” he said.
“They hear the rhythms and vibrations though their feet,” he clarified. He said people should not be surprised to see them dancing at the show.
Sign language instructor at the Botswana Society For The Deaf, Angelinah Kabainaa said she might have never heard Chaka Chaka sing but she had watched her on TV since her childhood.
“I would love to see her perform, she seems friendly and I cannot wait to meet her,” she said. The show that will run from 7pm to 12 midnight will also feature artists like Brown Sugar and DJ Boogie SID and the tickets cost P300.
