Franco to perform three sets at his ‘Fill up show’

Published

Celebrated rhumba artist, Franco, says he will perform at least three sets at his much anticipated fill up show slated for April 4 at the National stadium.

Franco-born Frank Lesokwane- held a press briefing this morning to confirm the show dubbed ‘Soul fill up’.

His first appearance on stage has been scheduled for 8 PM, followed by another midnight stunner and last performance at 4 am.

It has also been said that on the day it will be an all-local line up, though the line up is yet to be finalised.

Speaking at the event, one of the show organisers, Kabelo Oanthata, emphasized that the event is a one man show. “Essentially the event is about the man himself Franco. His performance will take attendants down memory lane through his 17 albums. Of course he cannot be on stage all night long so he will have supporting local acts,” Oanthata explained.

For his part, Franco said he had always had a vision of one day hosting an event of this magnitude and that it is long overdue. “The day has finally come for me to call upon all Batswana to witness for the first time on stage, music that I have been releasing since day one. I am not much of a speaker so I will let my performance do it for me on stage.”

The man who has been trending for the past two weeks ever since the announcement of the event further stressed: “I will fill up that stadium. It will happen, I have survived so much in my life including food poisoning, so I will get through this too and it will happen.”

Tickets for the event start going on sale from Monday with early bird tickets going for P 100, general tickets 150, double P 270 and VIP P 800.

Zeus to release Pieces of the Now

Zeus to release Pieces of the Now

One of the few local artists to ever receive the coveted Chanel O award for the category Best Male Award ; Zeus (Game Bantsi ) is currently working on his much awaited album, which he hopes will reignite his 2014 fame.

Voice Entertainment visited Zeus at one of his rehearsals where he is also preparing for his fourth album, which will be called ‘Pieces of the Now’

The last time Zeus released an album was back in 2013 dubbed “African Time”. Commenting on his next offering Zeus said, “The coming album will have about 15 songs but as you can imagine we have not finilised the list. I have featured about four guys in the album one guy called Rane Rap who is based in the US and another rapper from Namibia called Dollars or Yens as well as Owie and ONx Da Poet.
It is a really exciting project that has been a long time coming and I really can’t wait to have it out,” Zeus said.

Catching up on his thoughts on the state of the of Hip Hop at the moment, the “Gijima” rapper said, “Today’s hip hop music is more diverse that it gets credit for. The biggest problem is not that everything had gravitated to one sound, which is an arguable view, the biggest problem is how media covers the current hip hop.”

Asked to elaborate Zeus said, “There aren’t enough acts who are very organic in their appeal who get coverage. There is still a lot of lyricism in the game.”

But who does Zeus believe is the best rapper in BW? The energetic rapper who is also part of the organizing committee of popular Jam4brunch event said, “There are different traits we can look at and each one of those traits someone excels at. Ideally you would want an artist who can bring all those together from flow, to content to multiple perspectives and storytelling. When I think of flow, I think of Veezo View. When I think about say perspective a guy like Frost comes to mind.”

When I think of new age hip hop trap soul kind of vibe a guy like Manne dilla comes to mind, But if I am to name someone who brings it all together I would say arguably ATI. I can’t overlook him. But all the other mentions are special names,” Zeus said.

However there is no MC Zeus will rather not face , “One thing I have maintained is that one should be always ready to fight. I am confident enough to say there is no one I would shy away from if they want to go at it.”

Zues has another collaborative project with rapper Nomadic also expected to be released this year.

In the mean time he has released his single, Gotta get mine, which has shot up the ranks in the local charts.
