All is not lost for the once formidable traditional group, Culture Spears as one of its founding members, Kabelo Mogwe has not ruled out the possibility of them releasing another joint album together as a group in the nearby future.
Many of Culture Spears followers are desperately calling for the artists to release another full album at least for their sake. Following their split some years back the three lead members, Magdeline Lesolebe popularly known as Charma Gal, Thembeni ‘Ramozara’ Ramosetlheng and Mogwe of Kulenyane trademark then pursued successful solo careers. The group at the time had already released a couple of albums such as Kuweletsana, Kulenyana, Kulanche, Khudu, Korone and Kokomochane together. Few years down the line, the artists at one point came back and even toured Gaborone taking revelers back to the time when the group was still in full force.
In his latest solo album titled Didimala Moratiwa released this year Mogwe featured both Ramozara and Charma Gal. The collaboration fueled the hope that the three are headed for a reunion. Mogwe featured Charma Gal on a hit song titled ‘Sibi’ and while Ramozara was featured on track number four (4) titled ‘Bantomi.’ In the album which was released just before the start of Covid-19 induced lockdown Mogwe also featured South African song star, Slindile as well as DJ Siya of Namibia. The album is his third as a solo artist following two other released, Dibeisane and Lebante.
In an interview with The Patriot Lifestyle Mogwe said the collaboration is a sign that they are heading towards the idea of maybe releasing another album together. The traditional music sensation says it advisable that they start with something small together before they can think of working on an album.
“Featuring them ke gone jaka re atumelana gore kamoso ebe jaanong re ka akanyetsa album, re ne re cheka di mic and we are happy that people have responded positively to our latest songs together,” Mogwe hinted.
He confirmed that as it is their wish they will in future possibly release another joint album. The down to earth artist stressed that as for now they will however continue to work together on their past albums whilst continuing with their solo careers. Ramozara also shared the same sentiments concurring that it is their wish to work on an album together in future as culture spears. He pointed that the only challenge is that they are all currently held up by commitments to their solo careers.
“Myself I have already been working with Kabelo its is only Charma who is held up by other commitments but obviously when she steps in we will work on something,” Ramozara stressed. Even though Charma Gal could not be reached but she was also previously quoted in other media publications saying that she will work together with Culture Spears more often going forward.
As it would have been expected the collaboration album like their other past albums is not only rocking in Botswana but has also hit in other foreign countries especially in neighbouring South Africa and Namibia. Some of the songs have also attracted over one million views in Culture Spears YouTube Channel. Mogwe said the album is also in high demand for purchase from their online store. Meanwhile Mogwe has indicated that the covid-19 outbreak came at a time when they were scheduled to perform in about 17 various entertainment events in South Africa lamenting that the pandemic disrupted all of that.
