MYSC Lauded For Conducting BOMU Elections

- BOMU launch music awards

The Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture has been lauded for helping the trouble ridden Botswana Musicians Unions(BOMU) for overseeing the election of the existing Executive Committee.

Botswana Investment and Trade Centre(BITC) has also been acknowledged for providing venue for press conference to alleviate created by resource constraints paralyzing BOMU.

Officials from the organization have urged BOMU to emulate their counterparts in Nigeria who have fought long and hard to make their arts and music industry a force to be reckoned with. BITC said they are not in the business of helping artists record albums but would help where they could.

“This year we are broke but we said we have a place to host press conferences. Instead of finding a venue where you will have to pay you can host them with us,” said Gaorekwe Gaorekwe, Botswana Investment and Trade Centre (BITC), Director of Brand Botswana International Portfolio

He said, “Until you become professional you will struggle to become what you want to be.”

The newly elected Executive Committee was quick to dismiss a group of disgruntled musicians who have questioned the validity of the Government sanctioned elections warning so called dissidents that companies will ignore them because they are bad for business.

“We want music to transform econmy of Botswana. Government cannot diversify economy alone,” said Pagson Ntsie, Secretary General of BOMU.

He said, “There were will be 37 categories this year with 4 new ones.”

The new awards include best Disabled artists, Best Music promoter, Best corporate person of the Year and Best International Artist. Nominees have been announced and voting lines have been opened to the public for awards.

Sponsors include Bravo Guest House, BK Procter, Inspirational City Church, Metropolitan, Incepta Communications, Sedibeng Lodge, H2 Lodge, MYSC, BTV, Jazz Exchange, Netbuilders and Trackers Nite Club.

“Our motivation for sponsoring the BOMU awards is to express our love for Botswana and we thought of disabled persons because they constitute a marginalized group and are deserving of our support,” said Tapologo Montshiwa, Managing Director of The Bravo’s Guesthouse, who is sponsoring event with P3,500 cash and accommodation for 2 winners for 2 nights at his guest house in Mahalapye.
