KTM choir turns 25 years next year and it has not wasted any time in rolling out celebrations in advance. The choir was formed in 1993 by the late BMD President Gomolemo Motswaledi. The choir’s spokesman Mike Modise said that they have already started their activations and the hype that go with celebrations. They have an event planned for May 19, 2017 at Westwood Mantlwaneng Theatre as part of the celebrations. He said their admirers should not miss this show because that they will bring back their old style. “We will be doing it the old way. We are going back to grassroots, so this is the time for KTM choir lovers to come and enjoy themselves,” he said. Modise said their audience should expect good music with good voices because since the birth of KTM it has grown in many aspects, producing composers, soloists, conductors and many other artists. He made reference to people like Punah, Nnunu, Lizibo and the Royal Tenors as some of those who started with them to become successful local artists. “In the next five years I see this choir performing internationally and having its own place to rehearse – that is our aim as a brand,” he said. Modise reiterated that going towards their big celebration in 2018, they will make sure that Batswana get to see and celebrate one of the best choirs to come out of this country. “We have achieved so many things. We have performed in countries like the United States of America. We have performed in many competitions be it President Competitions, BOCAM competitions, BTU competitions and even with the Police band. We have also performed with orchestra from South Africa,” he said, attributing their success to making sure that they commit themselves in keeping their members happy. He said popular songs like Tsibiribi, ABC and Mosese wa Nylon will all be sung for people to enjoy since they have fallen in love with them from the beginning.
