Casper The DJ off to eSwatini

24 May 2023

Botswana’s amapiano DJ sensation, Casper The Dj is set to perform at the 16th MTN Bushfire in Marlkens, eSwatini this weekend.

Kgosi Sabone (real name)  will perform at the MTN Bushfire Ballantine’s Firefly stage on Saturday, an event that will also feature one of the biggest amapiano DJs in the region, Kabza De Small of South Africa.

MTN Bushfire is one of Africa’s largest multicultural gatherings, with a diverse inclusive and family-friendly music and arts festival set in a fantasy-scape of the imagination. 

The festival attracts patrons from over 60 countries each year for an uplifting and energising weekend in eSwatini.

With different diverse artistes in and around SADC, the MTN Bushfire festival is a platform for learning opportunities for local acts such as Casper The DJ. 

“The festival houses different artistes in and around SADC for three days, and this is an opportunity to go out and learn what others outside Botswana have to offer,” Casper The DJ said.

He added that he would not only be in eSwatini to perform, but to also appreciate the cultural diversity of various artistes from different countries. 

“The opportunity for me to perform is actually an amazing learning curve, which I will make use of to my advantage,” he said.

He was also hopeful that the experience would birth relationships that would see international collaborations and further explore the diverse one another’s musical journeys as artistes.

Other big acts scheduled to perform at the MTN Bushfire festival are South Africa’s Morda, Black Motion, Zimbabwe’s Bantu Spaceship, Lesotho’s Maleh with some classic soulful melodies as well as eSwatini’s Velemseni and rising talent iYA, among many other artistes from the region and beyond. ENDS
