Village Pope shines in Mother City

Tsepo TsholaMASERU — One of Lesotho’s greatest musicians of all time, Tsepo Tshola flew the country’s flag high at the 2010 Fifa World Cup draw, in Cape Town on Friday night.
The Village Pope, as Tshola is popularly known, closed the curtains on the draw, alongside South African and international artistes, after teams that qualified for next year’s global soccer showcase had been placed in their groups for the first World Cup to be held on the African continent.
Tshola’s  manager and spokesperson, Thato Pekeche, said The Village Pope was representing the Basotho nation at the draw, which was broadcast live to millions of television viewers across the world.   
“This performance is for Basotho. He will be representing Lesotho in Cape Town,” Pekeche told Xpress People on Friday, less than five hours before the 18:00hrs draw.
“We are proud about Lesotho. It is a real pleasure to be here to represent our country. We feel honoured to have been selected to be among the artistes performing at the 2010 Fifa World Cup draw.”
Pekeche said performing at Friday’s World Cup draw would remain one of Tsepo’s memorable occasions
“Tsepo has been in the music industry for a long time now, but this is one of those times that will remain memorable in his career. It is so incredible, especially coming now because Tsepo has forty years of experience in the music industry,” she said.
Pekeche said Tsepo was chosen to perform at the draw because of what he embodies as an African musician.
“He has performed in so many shows in South Africa and his cultural  heritage was one of the reasons why he was among the chosen few at the show.”
