FRANCISTOWN: Francistown-based teenagers made it to the Top Four of the Just Gospel TV show competition at the civic center hall last Saturday.

After a successful top five launch which was held in Maun last month, Bame Maoto and Lechani Botepe both 17 years and Francistowners managed to melt the hearts of Batswana and reserved their seats for the Top Four competition.

The Francistowners will be competing with Petrus Leungo (34) from Maun and Keobokile Kemodisa (27) representing Gaborone for the grand price of P200,000.

The remaining contestants are said to be the cream of the crop because they all portrayed great talent and have what it takes to be the Just Gospel TV show inaugural competition winners.

In an interview with Showbiz, the director of the show who is also an economist by profession, Robert Muzila said the competition is tough because the remaining competitors are multi-talented individuals.

He noted that their search for a unique singer who is passionate about singing gospel to the people will be a success because the remaining competitors have displayed great potential.

He added that the Top Four participants have put up amazing performances and impressive singing skills before a panel of judges and touched the hearts of the people who have been voting to keep their favourites in the competition.

He revealed that they are receiving a lot of viewership for the gospel on Btv.

“Our voting numbers go over to 23,000, which is evident that Batswana are supporting the show,” he said.

Muzila said the competition is in the hands of the voters to choose the winner looking at their stage performance, presence and vocals.

He said the top three launch will be held at the civic centre hall in Francistown on May 28 and the grand finale will be held on July 2 in Maun.

Muzila noted that apart from the grand prize, the winner will walk away with a recording deal together with a tour around the country.

“The show is still battling with support from the corporate world and different churches in the community. Some churches do not support the show as they indicate that it belongs to certain churches. It is not true because the competition was established for the youth to showcase their talents,” he said.

Muzila added that the initiative behind the show is to draw youth to a Christian life.

One of the top four finalists, Maoto, said that she is excited to have made it to the top four and thanks God for her journey.

She said words cannot describe her joy and happiness, but she is going to work on her stage presence and voice projection so that she can be part of the top three.

The other contestant, Leungo, shared the same sentiments with Maoto expressing his gratitude to The Almighty.

“For me to be in the top four is a great achievement because when the competition was established there were over 100 of contestants battling for the same prize but they were unfortunate not to reach the Top Four. I am prepared and ready for the top three,” he said.

He pleaded with Batswana to keep on voting for him to keep him in the competition.
