Maun, Entertainment Industry Mourn Dj Big Pun


to be laid to rest tomorrow!

The entertainment industry is reeling in shock following the death of Maun based popular veteran deejay and businessman Moreetsi Molelekeng alias DJ ‘Big Pun.’

A memorial service for the Mahalapye-born DJ was held yesterday where various speakers came to pay their last respects. Big Pun who will be remembered for his vibe, love and humbleness will be laid to rest in Mahalapye tomorrow.

Punisher as he was also known, passed away last week at Nyangabwe Referral Hospital in Francistown following a short illness.  Molelekeng reportedly experienced some difficulties in breathing and he was rushed to the hospital where he was admitted in the intensive care unit until he succumbed to the illness.

His death comes as a double whammy for the Maun community who also lost another popular entertainment guru, Reneilwe ‘Manex’ Wright hardly three months ago. Big Pun was an inspiration to many upcoming artists in Maun and countrywide as he played a crucial role in the entertainment industry.

Big Pun was also known to be a hustler of note having started from humble beginnings and besides being a force to reckon with in the entertainment industry, he also ventured into other business ventures – having started the Punisher Cleaning Services operation which he operated successfully.

This week, tributes continued to pour in from across the entertainment industry for the DJ who was remembered as a very humble and kind being. His death was met with a deluge of condolences and tributes following news broke on social media regarding his demise.

In an interview with The Weekender, BOMU President Fresh Lesokwane said Big Pun contributed a lot in the night life and also built the music industry in Maun. He lamented that his sudden death has sadly created a gap within the industry. “We have lost a legend, may the family be comforted,” he lamented.  

Kwaito-kwasa sensation Odirile Ishmael Sento aka Vee Mampeezy also took to social media to reveal his shock about the passing of the DJ who he described as a humble person who understood his work.

Base Lounge Night Club where Pun was a regular DJ also remembered him, “as we bid farewell to our dear friend and a true legend of our beloved club, we vow to honor your memory by continuing to pursue our passions, spreading love and cherishing every moment we have with one another.”

“Your legacy will continue to shine brightly, inspiring generations of DJs and music enthusiasts to come. Rest in peace ‘DJ Big Pun’ You will forever hold a special place in our hearts, your vibrant spirit and boundless energy will forever stand as a testament to the treasured memories we shared at Base Lounge”

A local businessman Reaboka Mbulawa also wrote, “This is very unsettling and worrisome! It hit Maun and Ngamiland extremely hard as we keep losing these young promising entertainment gurus of our times. Guys with unconditional passion for the night life and passion for making Maun holiday makers satisfied and coming back to our town. Big Pun will be missed as we send our deepest heartfelt condolences and prayers to his family.”

Another Maun native who is also CEDA Brand Ambassador Sonny Serite posted “My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. May you take solace in the knowledge God wanders in his garden and picks the best fruits like Big Pun.”
