LONDON, February 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
The year 2016 has finally dawned and it comes with no shortage of surprises. Celebrating its 5th anniversary in the same year that Botswana reaches a milestone 50 years of independence, the Diacore Gaborone marathon has a big surprise for its runners on April 3rd. We are proud to officially confirm that Kabelo Mabalane AKA Bouga two shoes AKA pantsula for life of TKZee family will take part in the Diacore Gaborone Marathon 2016!
Having achieved phenomenal success in music since his start in 1997 with four highly successful platinum selling albums with kwaito group TKZee, two solo projects, TV shows, world tours and his very own record label, anyone who knows Kabelo knows that despite the astronomical successes, his journey was not one without its challenges.
"Bouga Luv" is as perfect an example of how anyone can, through sport, turn their life around and truly achieve their amazing fetes. A brilliant soccer player in his early adolescence, Kabelo went on to struggle with substance abuse and weight problems in the early years of his music career. These issues plagued him until he eventually decided enough is enough, strapped on his running shoes and hasn't looked back since. On race day he'll be bringing that same strong will and inspiration to share with Batswana as we celebrate our own journey to 50 years of prosperity.
