Some have called him brave whilst others continue to call him plain stupid, but love or hate him local rapper KAST is a force to be reckoned with, and as one of the most trending topics in Botswana right now, Kast and his #TlatsaLebala #1000kmWalk for Botswana Music cannot be ignored.
According to the rapper, this ‘crazy walk’ is aimed at raising awareness, creating hype and encouraging support for local music and artists all leading up to the Tlatsa Lebala show. The TlatsaLebala music show which will be held later in the year at the National Stadium is planned to be a 100% local line up show.
“The objective is simple, I want to show people that we don’t always need to bring in artists from outside to have a great show. Our very own local talent and music is sufficient and good enough to put on a great show, and not only that but to pull large numbers, numbers that will fill up the National Stadium,” he says.
In the beginning he was faced with a lot of negativity and scepticism with many doubting if the 1000km walk for Botswana Music from Maun to Gaborone would even see the light of day. But the determined artist is proving the many non-believers wrong. To date he has walked over 400 kilometres and continues to gain more ground with each day. The doubting Thomas’s are beginning to believe, and not just believe but are joining the movement and rallying behind the rapper and his team.
With the support for this initiative gaining momentum every day, Kast and team have come up with a structure which categorizes sponsorships. “A lot of people have been asking how they can buy kilometres or Sponsor the walk. We have come up with a sponsorship structure, but please note that we will not be selling any kilometres such that Kast doesn't walk them, he is walking the full 1000km. You can only buy him a rest day,” says communication from the Tlatsa Lebala official FB page.

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.
