After five years presenting Botswana’s most loved entertainment show, Botswana Television’s Flava Dome, Loungo Pitse is ready to close that chapter and embrace new challenges.
The talented presenter landed the job back in 2013 after another presenting gig with My African Dream, Botswana’s first talent search show which was produced by Maruapula School. Pitse has for the last five years had his fans glued to their TV screens every Friday night in anticipation of his mesmerizing talent. Although he started off in TV as a teenager, he has grown over the years, earning himself a reputation as one of the best local presenters as well as an MC of note.
The 30 year old presenter shared, much to the shock of many, his intended departure from BTV’s premium entertainment show via Facebook this week. He however was quick to point out that there was no bad blood between him and the show producers, despite him leaving.
“After 5 years of being your primary entertainment on a Friday Night, the journey has come to end on Flava Dome for me as your Presenter. I have taken the decision to part ways with the show and trust me there is no bad blood. Flava Dome will forever be my family, but there comes a time in someone’s life where growth is necessary. I want to do other things, try this and that, fail and embrace my mistakes and become the best version of me,” he wrote to his many followers on the social network.
He also revealed that being in the public eye had subjected him to constant insults, shaming, and cyber bullying noting however that it had made him all the more stronger. “I have loved every moment of being on Flava Dome, the opportunities that came with this amazing platform and the lessons I have acquired. I have learned to be strong in the face of cyber bullying, constant insults, calling of names, shaming and hate. Trust me my skin has only become thicker. Touch not the anointed thus says the Lord,” he said.
Pitse has been working alongside the ever dazzling Boipelo Sadi Dikgaka who he has built an unforced camaraderie which was also felt by viewers. When contacted for comment, Pitse said that he had decided to not make any further comments to media about why he had decided to quit the show. He however highlighted there was indeed no bad blood between him and the show producers. “I am currently not doing any interviews and comments now, but there is no bad blood between us,” he said.
In 2015, King Bee, as he is popularly known tried out for the South African broadcasting Channel’s Top Billing presenter search and got shortlisted in the Top 30. He however made it to the boot camp stage and was among South African top names such as former Miss SA Rolene Strauss. The talented presenter has also had a short stint in radio, presenting the Yarona FM morning show briefly.
In May 2014, controversial pint sized musician, Odirile Sento married his longtime girlfriend, Kagiso Sento in a glamorous wedding, not knowing that eight years later, the two will be fighting until the very end of their holy union.
Mental health is one critical element in someone’s life but gloomily, it is often overlooked. Topics centered on mental health and depression dominate the public discourse. The national conversation surrounding mental wellness, both online and offline has aided in the stigma of suffering from depression being removed, slowly but surely.
