Artist: Ronald Moipolai - Ditakaneng is about a notorious Gaborone neighborhood and describes some horrific events that took place there not too long ago. Its upbeat pace and melody seem to contrast starkly with the subject matter. But Ronnie's music is made to fit into the raucous environment of the chabin, where people go to let loose and unwind. While the subject matter may be sad, his songs never sound sad. To his audience, which is likely to include people from places like Ditakaneng, this seems perfectly natural. The lyrics offer an honest account of what's happening, but the music is meant to lift people's spirits, not bring them down.
