Botswana artistes on DStv Delicious Festival

18 Sep 2023

The DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a star-studded line-up of international artistes.

Even more special, is the inclusion of two talented Batswana musicians who will grace the stage alongside renowned global performers.

DJ Mduduzi ‘Mdu Tha Party’ Madzwamuse and R&B sensation, Dato Seiko, will make history as the first-ever Batswana artistes to perform at the DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival.

On Day two of the festival, Dato Seiko, fresh off the launch of her hit song ‘The Vow’, will share the stage with American R&B icon Maxwell, South Africa’s Joyous Celebration, Incognito, and more at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit.

Dato Seiko, whose real name is Katlego Ntirang, expressing her excitement, said: “The first song I ever learned to sing was Maxwell’s ‘This Woman’s Work’ when I was in Standard One.

He’s one of the artistes who’ve taught me how to always put all my emotion into my performances. I couldn’t be happier to be the first live performing artist from Botswana to grace their main stage.”

Mdu Tha Party, who recently hosted ‘Bots Top 5,’ a music video countdown show dedicated to Botswana music on Channel O, has had a year filled with recognition and achievement for his exceptional talent.

Madzwamuse said: “To be invited to be on one of Africa’s biggest stages is a testament not just to my talent, but to how big our dreams are as young African creatives.

“I believe I am worthy of a spot on the line-up and I’m ecstatic to be at par with the best DJs and musicians from all over the world.

“I am determined to make my supporters and my country proud and cannot wait to steal the show with the Blue, Black, and White on my shoulders.”

MultiChoice Botswana played a pivotal role in ensuring that both Dato Seiko and Mdu Tha Party had the opportunity to perform at the festival. Thembile Legwaila, MultiChoice Botswana Head of Marketing, said:

“At MultiChoice Botswana we play a significant role in connecting our local talent to the stages and experiences that we know will have a significant impact on their careers.

“As a business committed to playing a role in growing the local creative industry, it is essential to us that we do all we can to see our stars rise on such platforms.

It is an absolute pleasure for us to be a part of these two individuals’ ever-rising journey to stardom and we look forward to being able to make even more of a contribution to more artists over time.”
