“To see all the smiling faces, young and old, and everyone dancing – from the little kids to the grannies – just filled my heart with joy. This was the best crowd yet at the festival!” said Nubian Music Festival founder, Mpho Mathope.
“I am also very appreciative of our partners who made all of this possible and would like to thank Motsweding FM, Independent Media and the North West department of Arts, Culture, Sports & Recreation for their partnership and assistance. We would also like to thank the people that have been supporting us since the beginning, as well as the people of Botswana who came in their droves to enjoy this special day with us. The Nubian Music Festival looks forward to building on this year’s success with future events.”
