Revolution to perform at the annual Turn up the Heat Festival

Top selling and award winning duo, Revolution, will on December 3rd set the tone for the festive season when they perform at the annual Turn Up the Heat Festival in Gaborone.

Revolution is one of South Africa’s most successful house groups. The group was founded by twin brothers, George and Joseph Mothiba. They will be in Botswana on December 3rd, to perform at the inaugural Annual Turn up the Heat Festive Jam at Kagisong Centre.

Revolution’s musical journey began in the dusty streets of Alexandra Township, where the twin brothers grew up.

Fast-forward to today, the Mothiba twins are some of the top producers and top house music ambassadors in the country. They also own their independent record label, Four Sounds Productions. It is at Four Sounds Productions that Revolution has over the years churned out one classic house album after another.

To date, Revolution remains one of the premier house groups in South Africa. Just recently, the duo released yet another club banger, a 12-track album titled “Meropa,” which takes off from their previous offering “Tribal Journey.”

With numerous awards already in the bag, Revolution is pioneering the South African music revolution and putting the South African music industry on the global map. They continue to perform and release albums worldwide, in the process drawing thousands of listeners to their authentic African sound.

The musical journey will continue in Gaborone when the Mothiba brothers cook up a storm at Kagisong Center on December 3rd.

Performing alongside Revolution will be local House music heavyweights, David ‘Ski’ Molosi, Old School jammer DJ Sid, turntable maestro DJ Khenzo. DJ’s Domz, Choto, Bax, Shimrock and Anthem will also be there to add to the wide variety of top notch performers at the show.

Other acts will include Crispin, Mzwex, Lexx, Deep House Society and T-Man. Hip Hop maestro Mosako will also give an exclusive performance. The MC for the event will be RB2’s T.H.A.B.O.

The show is brought to Gaborone by WindRush Communications. The organizer, Moses “Rude Boy” Maruping, told LifeStyle that tickets, which sell for P80, are already on sale at various places across town.

These include, CJ Hair Salon, Classico Boutique, Borgati Fashions, The Voice and Kagisong Centre.

“I advice revelers to grab tickets in advance to avoid paying P100 at the main event. This is definitely a gig not to be missed and it is a great way to open the festive season,” he said.
He also thanked his partners, Hunters Gold and The Voice, for making the event possible.
