Thapama Pleasure Island in association with Cigar Lounge will this Friday host Mafikeng based artist Tshego.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia in the USA, the 29 year old dropped his debut LP “Since 1990” in 2014. He had previously released singles under the name “Shag The Gorilla” before ditching the high school nickname for Tshego.
He’s also collaborated with some of the biggest names in South Africa, notably AKA.
The artist will share the stage with locals DJs Cue, K.U.D, Shamrock with Gabz Diva controlling the proceedings.
P50 gets you in before 2200hrs and P80 after.
More-fire for Mao-fit
More Fire and the Unique Stars, a Kwasa-Kwasa band that slowly crept up the ladder of the industry has released a new single titled ‘Maofit’, in reference to the notorious Honda Fit hatchback.
The new single will definitely enhance the artist and his band’s growing reputation in the popular genre. Born Lungisani Marudu in Tutume, More Fire wrote the song to pay tribute to a car that made news headlines in Botswana and the neighbouring countries. Released on 2nd February, on his birthday, ‘Maofit’ was recorded at Noble Sound Studio in Gaborone.
“Maofit as many call it is a legend in this country. The car has made a name for itself and is definitely dominating the market. It holds the record for over speeding, overloading, reckless overtaking and any other thing you can think of. I just love the car that is why I recorded this song,” he said.
The Tutume native and his band Unique Stars have been in the music industry for 13 years, recording their first album “Ndo ku tshamba” in 2007. They recorded four more albums ‘Obone koo’ (2010), ‘Theka la tshwene’ (2015), ‘Ke boela gae’ (2016) and ‘Talente’ in 2019.
“My wish is to be successful so I’ll be able to donate to the needy. It is something I’ve been doing for a while, and with more success in my music career I’d be able to continue helping the less privileged,” he said.
Kamo Mphela live
In 2019, saucy South African dancer Kamo Mphela brought traffic to a standstill on the streets of Jozi.
