Currently signed under Multinational Record Label, Universal Studios, owned by the late Robie Malinga, Olebile Maxy Sedumedi is popularly known for her folklore Traditional music but has since transitioned across genres such as gospel and Afro music.

Her first offering under Malinga in 2016, ‘Why Uvuma’ was an instant hit in the neighbouring South Africa. Maxy is popularly known for her hit songs such as, Badimo ba buile, Hello My Baby and Makorakoretsa. She has been called the Brenda Fassie of Botswana because of her voice, whose tone resembles that of the late South African Queen of Pop. In an interview with WeekendLife, Khoisan Maxy said that the event was conceived because since she moved to South Africa, she felt the need to give Batswana a night to reminisce on the olden days.

She said that most of her current songs mostly cater for the South African audience. “I have been based in South Africa with Universal Studios under the late Robie Malinga. I have been doing music that caters for South Africans and then I noticed I have Maxy of Botswana how about I do something for Batswana,” she said. The theatrical performer, further explained that this is not only a night to remember for Batswana but a reflection of how far she has come as an artist.

“This will be a show for my music journey. People miss what I can do,” she said. She further highlighted that the night is for Batswana that follow her and for people who want a night with her to come and share in a moment of bliss. “As much as I am based in South Africa, I also notice that I have people that follow Maxy in Botswana and that really love what she does and I noticed I needed to give myself o this people,” she added. She attributes her success in the industry to the ability to brand herself as unique. She says she did not have to compete with anyone else but herself.

The event is a joint venture between Medumo Entertainment and Maxy and she hopes to pull a crowd of at least 600 people inside the hall that has a capacity of 1000 people. Alongside Sedumedi, there will be legends such as Kelly Khumalo, Banjo Mosele, Freddie Gwala, Pure Gold and Jonny Mokhali. Tickets are available at Liquorama for P200
