Botswana’s A-List Celebs

Like the saying goes, move in silence and only speak when it’s time to say check mate. While some celebrities often spend their earnings on lavish lifestyles all in the name of ‘staying relevant’, some of our Batswana faves have certainly made it big in the entertainment industry by making all the right moves silently and investing wisely. We have come up with a list of those that top the charts.

The Fergusons


Having relocated to South Africa, the Fergusons are originally from Botswana and we have to admit they definitely take the number one spot on this one. Acting was what kick started everything for them in their careers. Sure we all remember Connie Ferguson as Karabo Moroka from the popular South African drama series ‘Generations’ as well as ‘The Wild’ and ‘Rockville’. Her husband was on ‘Scandal, Muvhango, Rockville as well as The Wild.

The two have since become television moguls as they own their own production house, ‘Ferguson Films’ which by the way has produced some great local South African television shows. The Queen is one of those and everyone can’t stop talking about it because of the famous Patronella

The local fashion mogul has put in the work to be where she is right now. 

Odirile Vee Sento

Vee Mampeezy

This list wouldn’t be complete if the great and legendary ‘Taku Taku’ hit maker was left out. That was one hit that got everyone crazy in love with his music and who would have thought that his career would take him to such great lengths that he has achieved today. Hardnwork definitely does pay off and the lavish lifestyle that Vee and his family are living is fairly deserved because of the many hours of work that have been ploughed over the years. He stays in the ‘rich people’ surburbs as they would call it and has a fleet of expensive cars. Who can say no to having that kind of life?
