- Famed American RnB group, the Manhattans touched down in Gaborone on Tuesday ready to wow fans across two countries, Botswana and South Africa this weekend.
The Manhattans are accompanied by another popular Motown group, The Temptations.
Hundreds of Motown fans lined-up at the Sir Seretse Khama Airport to welcome the American groups ahead of the Friday night show, dubbed the "Motown Afro Night Concert". 
It will be the first time the Manhattans perform in Botswana, but the second time for the Temptations who ere in Gaborone last year, and are back by popular demand.
South African group, Cheek to Cheek, which rose to fame in the 1980s and Joe Nina will be the supporting acts, together with locals, Tshepi and Liseter Boleseng.
Promoter, Tshepiso Molosiwa said the concert was meant to market the southern African  country globally.
"It is an effort to promote cultural tourism. The show has strong marketing benefits that include high visibility and effective brand alignment, opportunities for client entertainment and a contribution to Botswana's increasing footprint in the global music market," he said.
He hailed the warm welcome extended to the musicians upon arrival.
"The turn out was great and the excitement was in the air while our guests enjoyed the beautiful performance by Mafitlhakgosi (a local traditional music group)," Molosiwa said.
The Manhattans looking energetic after the long flight, waved at fans and said there were ready for the show.
After the Gaborone show, the American groups proceed to South Africa's holiday resort, Sun City for a one-off show before flying back home.
The Manhattans and Temptations are two of Motown's most popular groups around the world. 'Kiss and say goodbye' is one of Manhattans best productions and is expected to wind back the clock for fans who will attend the two shows.
