MASEGO.  African.  From Secwana masego, a variant of matshego (blessings), the plural of letshego (a blessing). (Secwana Dictionary, Brown, 1895).
    Masego Ntshingane, a former Botswanan footballer. (Wiki)

... In making a detour one day in search of buffaloes or Guinea-fowls, in company with Masego, we came upon some women working in their maize-gardens.  They drew water for us, and spoke to us cheerily as we sat under a tree.  One of their husbands soon came running up in alarm, and made a great demonstration of fighting.  It was amusing to notice the effect of Masego's quiet chaff on our pugnacious visitor, who took up a defensible position on a slope some fifty yards off, while we rested in the shade.  "The women," said Masego, "had understood our civil petition for water perfectly; they showed no fear of peaceable men; we asked water from them because we had no vessel to draw with, and they had; but, if he insisted on fighting, he had better call all his friends and come on; it was daylight, and all would see who was the coward and who was not." (Narrative of an Expedition to the Zambesi and its Tributaries, Livingstone, 1866)
