Nyovest headlines GIMC

The organisers of one of the biggest event in Africa, Gaborone International Music and Culture Week (GIMC) have this week announced that South African Hip Hop star Cassper Nyovest has agreed to headline the 2017 music festival at the national stadium in October.


He performed at a historic event last year, where GIMC for the first time in the history of music festivals filled the stadium to capacity, a feat achieved recently by Kast through his Tlatsa Lebala event. Prior to Tlatsa Lebala reports were very rife that Cassper Nyovest had wanted to partner and perform at the successful event which was hundred percent local.


However he did not partake at the event because the organisers had wanted to make it strictly local. With his new album Thuto now out in stores,Cassper who has close ties with Botswana jumped to the opportunity of headlining the 2017 edition of GIMC a move that will also promote the new album.


Alongside Ricky Rick, Mafikizolo, Prince Kaybee and an endless line- up of local acts,  the event is yet again expected to bring last year’s memories and live up to its expectations. GIMC has now become an international brand and it is now rated amongst top ten events to attend in Africa albeit in its 4th year running. This is an event which has been praised a lot and brings many international acts to Botswana in an effort to bring in cultural exchange.


The GIMC is held to celebrate Gaborone and the culture of Batswana through music, festival, comedy, poetry, jazz, choral, cultural performances etc. It caters for everyone’s unique tastes so that no one feels left out during the week’s events. Only the best international, regional & local artists are chosen to perform at GIMC in order to afford good quality performances for the attendees to get their money’s worth. For the first time last year they have introduced theatre to help tell the Botswana story as we celebrated 50 years of independence.
