Mokaragana new trio promises thrills and chills

Mokaragana new trio

As the world continues to suffocate from the devastating impacts of Corona-virus and everything in between that halted, Botswana Television got a facelift.

The TV station has been considered monotonous for years, and the entertainment program Mokaragana was said to be deteriorating.

Just recently, Mokaragana welcomed a trio that promises fireworks. They say they are about to burn down the whole studio and bring back the fascination that the show is known for. People were once glued to their screens when it was time for Mokaragana, but we have seen the numbers sink in the past years.

The previous presenters; Miso Mmereki and Joel Keitumele- who is famously known as Ntsoro- steered the show to another level. These guys would even turn a drab performance by musicians into a lively and entertaining show which people loved. Even fun enthusiasts at the bars would pause for a minute and pay attention to Ntsoro’s hilarious dance moves, as bad as they were. Once the show is done, they continue sipping on their giggle waters.

The trio Kefilwe Leonard or Kefus Leo if you may, Botshelo Mosweu affectionately called Girly and Kabelo Tiro, who is famously known as Skavenja are what people should expect to see every Saturday on their screens. If you are a Mokaragana fan, you got to love them even if you did not want to.

Girly is a ball of energy and knows how to captivate her audience. Kefus Leo is an all-round entertainer who is motivated by living, loving and learning. She got the vibes and you will never be jaded at an event she hosts.

I got to see her in 2019 at the Lobatse Meat Festival when she held it down as an MC. For her, Mokaragana is a perfect show to exploit all her energies, and learn as an individual in the whole process.
In an exclusive interview with Weekendlife, Kefus Leo shared that she has all the thrills to send chills down her follower’s spines.

She says the show that has been shun as tedious, will bring changes that will help her grow as a creative.
“With everything that’s done in the limelight, there will always be something negative thrown at it. For me it’s all about solutions and looking forward to the changes that come with the new age Mokaragana.

Let’s look out for young and fresh talent. Let’s look for extra energy and of course most vibes,” said Leo.
She wants to host the show for as long as she can, after all, it’s a local talent music show she fell in love with that gives Batswana a chance to showcase their talents while also getting exposure.

In order to revamp the show, she says she learns from her co-presenters. “In just a short period of time I have learnt so many things. I have learnt how to actually breathe while on camera and few interview skills. The show wants someone who sings and performs, so I gave myself time to dwell in those areas too.”

Award winning female artist, Girly said with the fan base she already has, she strives to convey them to the show. Though tentative to express herself plentifully, she says she brings along the fun that all fans have been waiting unwearyingly for.

“I believe people are looking for that genuine character who has all it takes to uplift moods. It’s not the show that is mind-numbing but the presenter. People are miserable especially at times of COVID-19, so all they need is something thought-provoking from TV,” says Girly.

A fashionista she is, she says having a great taste in fashion could help refurbish Mokaragana. People normally want to see a beautiful face before their screens, so Girly feels these bright cosmetics, effervescent make-up and a colourful wardrobe could spice up things a little bit.

She is right because international celebrities such as Kyle Jenner, Bonang Matheba and Zozibini Tunzi are being followed and compensated because of their sassy pictures and wardrobe. In this trio, there is a gentleman who needs no introduction to the entertainment industry, Skavenja. Skavenja is a choreographer, musician, song writer, fashion designer and a TV presenter. He told Weekendlife that being a presenter is part of artistry.

“Back in the days I hosted major lifestyle events such as the Mascom Boosta Bash and Gaabo-Motho Music Festival. I am a Mokaragana presenter now because I believe I could do the best as I am used to being before large crowds, plugging them up and doing what I love the most. It is exhausting yes emotionally, but I think it was a blessing in disguise,” said Skavenja.

Naturally thrilled, he says he will use his charisma also to get along with musicians and appreciate how they have been coping during the COVID-19 crisis, and how they intend to grow as creatives post the crunch.

Skavenja might have been sketchy with details but certainly, he will deliver. In fact, they will all do. The show has been lacking people with energy, enthusiasm and drive.

Weekendlife will be checking how these young folks bring down the thrills, and certainly have viewers spines chilled.
