dc.description.abstract The research on the Biographies of the Sesotho authors and music artists is lone venture of the National University of Lesotho through one member from the Department of African Languages and Literature. The National University of Lesotho granted funds to the sum of M40, 895.00 to Dr. Lehlohonolo Phafoli who became the Principal Researcher and the overseer of the whole process. The Principal Researcher worked closely with research assistants from the ten districts who coordinated and interviewed informants. The following were responsible for this mammoth task;  Mrs. Nthabiseng Koatsa  Mrs Magaret Lerotholi  Mrs Theresia Lekota  Ms Martha Seobi  Mr. Khoase Motsoafa  Mrs `Mathabelo Nkune  Mr Maloka Phamotse  Ms Nthabeleng Sekhonyana  Ms. Selimoleng Setsomi  Mr Mone Ramone The actual business was done through pre-arranged appointments which were followed by visiting areas and interviewing & recording the information from the authors and music artists. With regard to accountability, the Principal Researcher made regular financial accounting of activities that enabled the release of funds on a regular basis until the last cent. The principal researcher collected 55authors and 147 + music artists within and outside Lesotho. The biographies were transcribed, typed and edited to a certain extent, and they are currently stored in both the soft and hardcopy. In conclusion, it could be said that the exercise was a success. The hardcopies have been spiralled in a form of booklet for further proof-reading and production of final copy. The main obstacle was that the funds dried up before further activities could be completed. en_ZA
