Culture Spears perfect without Charma Gal

If you one day happen to see Culture Spears’ live band commanded by Kabelo Mogwe on stage, you will be convinced that there never was any other party that left the group. In fact, Mogwe himself says the group now, as is, is perfect!

Fans of the once embattled group were yearning for its reunion, and have expressed their wish publicly, particularly since the exit of the lead singer Magdalene Lesolebe, popularly known as Charma Gal. When Charma Gal left the group amid a highly publicised divorce from Mogwe, many were of the immediate view that without her, Culture Spears would wilt away. Mogwe himself had stated in the media that he wanted the group to reunite. Two years down the line, with no imminent reunion with the singer, Culture Spears thrives on. The return of one of the founding members, Jelinah Mokgwatlheng aka Selonyana excited fans this year.

In an interview with WeekendLife, Mogwe, who sang praises of the band, and himself for his great command of it, said that according to him, the group is faring well without the return of the other members who have since gone solo. “Of course the fans want us to reunite, and it will make me happy to grant them their wish, but the group is doing well as it is now,” he said.

Introducing a live band was a good move on the part of Culture Spears, particularly considering how many artists locally fail to deliver live performances. While some may argue that it was also a way for the group to “edit” out Charma Gal’s parts in the group’s earlier songs, arguably, Mogwe is doing a remarkable job as lead singer.

“It is funny discussing our live performances. I have always insisted on performing live on all shows, finances can sometimes be a problem but when we can, we always go that route. At the weekend I used the live band at a BOPEU event, and that performance is doing wonders for the group as I speak,” a chuffed Mogwe revealed. “We are getting calls from people that saw us and they want our live band to perform for them,” he added.

Mogwe’s stage performance, along with the rehearsed live band is what appeared to make them a favourite at the cooperate performance for BOPEU last weekend, and if that is how they always perform then they are doing it right. Mogwe has just been appointed SOS Children’s Villages Botswana ambassador and will perform at a tour organised by the association to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

SOS is a children’s rights advocacy group which, among others, provides stable, secure and loving care in a family setting for children; safeguards their well being and provides strengthening programmes help families stay together. Culture Spears has in the past donated to all SOS children’s villages countrywide. As the face of SOS, Mogwe said one of his roles will be to educate Batswana about SOS and make the association visible to many who have not heard about it before.
