Organisers of the upcoming The Life Changing event are promising revellers a one of a kind event that will rewrite history books locally. Slated to take place on August 25th, the event features the great Joyous Celebrations. The South African group will perform hits from their latest album, Joyous Celebration 22.
Organisers informed the media at a press conference held on Thursday morning that the event seeks to encourage the youth to have fun without indulging in alcohol or other substances. In attendance at the press conference was one of the founders of Joyous Celebration - Lindelani Mkhize, as well as some of the singers from the group. Speaking during the press conference, Mkhize confirmed that the group was ready and looking forward to setting the UB Sports Arena on fire. He said they have been touring South Africa, and that Botswana is one of the Southern African countries in their line up.
According to Mkhize, the focus of their performance will be on Joyous Celebration 22, but he was quick to point out that depending on where the spirit leads them, they might perform old and new material. “Depending on where the spirit leads us, we might have a couple of surprises in store for our supporters,” he said. He also emphasized that Joyous Celebration remains the only group that can be on stage for more than three hours. For the Botswana show, they will take to the stage at around 1830HRS and will leave the stage after midnight, with one or two breaks in between their set.
Event organiser, Joe Manuel of Braveheart explained that the show was long overdue, and that this is one show that music lovers do not wish to miss. The relationship between his company and the group, he explained, goes back many years. He promised that they will be putting together a once in a lifetime show, and that they will not cut any corners when it comes to different aspects of the event including stage and lightning. “The event is beyond life changing. And it is a journey and an experience. We are promising to take our craft to the next level,” he said adding that they were hoping to grow their relationship with the group and turn the event into an annual event. Manuel also pointed out that something that they changed this year was the sale of tickets. In the past, they started selling tickets two weeks before the show, but this year tickets went on sale on April 23. So far, they have sold over 3000. “Buy your tickets now to avoid disappointment,” he cautioned.
