Celeb edition with Ms Abbey

This week, Celeb Edition caught up with the latest singing sensation to take the local music scene by storm, Ms Abbey.

The 27-year-old Zimbabwean born singer is best known for her 2019 hit ‘Vacation’, a track that earned the artist a YAMA nomination for ‘Best RnB single’.

Indeed with two other nominations – ‘Best New Comer’ and ‘Best Female’ – the new kid on the block had a breakthrough year to remember.

Q. How does it feel to be nominated for three YAMAs so early in your career?

A. Being nominated three times is a great achievement for me as an artist considering that I only released my single ‘Vacation’ last year.

It shows growth and I’m thankful that Batswana have embraced my music.

Q. What do you consider your biggest achievement in music so far?

A. Having shot my first video for my debut single last year.

To an extent I never believed I could pull it off but I got the chance to work with one of the best Videographers in Botswana, Director Mo.

And I got to be sponsored by Sa Lorato Bed and Breakfast, hair essentials and big companies who were supportive of me and sponsored my music video.

Q. Who would you like to work with locally?

A. I would like to collaborate with ATI.

I have always admired him before I even got into the music industry.

He is very talented and I would love to experience working with him and learn a thing or two.

Q. What is the hardest thing about being in the spotlight?

A. The hardest thing is that there are certain things that you have to keep private.

You have to protect your brand at all costs but at the same time it’s not about what people think about you.

Q. What do you get up to when you are not making music?

A. I hold a BA (Honours) in Broadcasting and Journalism so when I’m not making music I produce content or write news, sports.

I produced a show called ‘Femme Talk’ on Access TV.

Q. If wishes came true what would you wish for?

A. My wish is to perform in the biggest shows in South Africa, like Casper Nyovest’s ‘Fill UP the Stadium’ because I feel it is internationally recognised now.

Q. What five items do you always carry in your handbag?

A. (Laughing) That would be my phone, power bank, lipstick, perfume and hand lotion.

This is another one from Jay Black Productions.

“Kgarebe”, a single by Alphaboi is a groovy Afro swing track from one of the most exciting producers.

Alphaboi and the other featured artists have really done justice to the beat with their vocal deliveries.

Although her name appears nowhere on the sleeve, the female voice on the song is simply amazing.

She deserves a mention on the sleeve.

Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful song, the kind that one can play in the morning to get their energy levels up.

Rating: 7 out of 10.

BABOLOKI THEBE

Shaya would like to condemn in the strongest terms possible the seemingly rampant indiscipline among our sports stars.

On Saturday Shaya woke up to devastating news of a car accident involving two elite athletes, Baboloki Thebe and Onkabetse Nkobolo.

While still in shock as to what the two stars were doing out and about at the time when they were supposed to be in camp, Shaya received shocking news that the previous owner of the car the athletes were using had long been calling out the athlete for rowdy behavior and bad driving.

THEBE’S CAR

It has become apparent that Thebe had been spotted driving recklessly but ran away from the police who were still looking for him when his accident occurred.

This is not the first time Thebe find himself on the wrong side of the law.

Last year he was charged with common nuisance after a scuffle with a woman who confronted him for reckless driving.

Guys, stop with the bad boy behavior already.

You owe it to yourself and to the nation to show some discipline.
