Just like in other African countries, popular music in Botswana is called “jazz”; however, it has little resemblance to the African-American genre of the same name. There is an initiative to focus on revitalizing the Botswana music industry, instead of relying on foreign releases.
Maxy KhoiSan is always in the good books of SA’s music and together with Mr Six21 Dj Dance, they team up on this entry titled “Tshaba Corona.”
Botswana Maxy has always made Mzansi her home of music, talking about her collaborations with the likes of Dj Call Me.
Mr Six21 Dj Dance has also been quite popular on these streets, and to say that he’s made intense contributions to Mzansi music, is simply stating the least.
This is the reason we have recorded a huge number of collaborations from his stables, and just to top the list he recently teamed up with King Salama on “Mathata Anyaka Bjalwa.“
This is a steaming attempt by Maxy to take a spot in the industry, and there is no gainsaying that she has come to stay on the soil of SA’s music.
