Pabalinga told Lifestyle that Nigerian music has become a favourite for many of Botswana’s music lovers, and they found it fitting that they should bring one of the biggest artists in Nigeria to give local fans a chance to experience his music live.

“Flavour has been enjoying a lot of airplay in Botswana. In fact, many fans, especially the women, are crazy about his songs. So it’s only fair that we give them a chance to see him perform,” said Pabalinga.

Flavour has won numerous awards in Nigeria and is also a front runner in the contest for Channel O’s Most Gifted Afro Pop Video Artist of the year award. He has been nominated for his hit song “Nwa Baby (Remix)”. To date, the Nigerian musician stands shoulder to shoulder with notable icons like Ice Prince, D’Banj, Tiwa Savage and 2Face.

Flavour’s hit song “Sawa Sawa Sawale” is very popular in Botswana. This is the song that many people know him for. It was one of the first singles in Flavour’s album, and it immediately shot him to international stardom.

The October 29 show is billed for GICC.
