The pintsized Amantle Ntshole, who goes by her first name Amantle on stage, has proven that she has come to stay in the local music industry. She rose to fame during her time at My Star, where she won over Batswana’s hearts even though she did not win the competition or to even come in the top three. She has released a new single Mahitshwana, which shows her vocal ability. Many of her age pals seem to choose pop music, RnB or rap but Amantle has slanted towards jazz. She started with Moratiwa, which was loved by many. Her recent song Mahitshwana proved just how versatile she is. This is a love song with the use of deep Setswana language. She said the song is dedicated to two people who deeply love each other. This then makes them to define their intimacy in a way that is out of this world. “This is my second single taken out of my album, Sa Pelo,” she said. According to Amantle, Sa Pelo is a concept that was inspired by the fact that she is writing all of her songs from the heart as they are motivated by her experiences and the people surrounding her. The album has got eight tracks and it is produced by Music Empire Records (MER) led by Beatslayer and Obylardo. She said when she did the song Mahitshwana she wanted something out of the norm but using the cliché concept of love. Amantle thought that making a sexual song in Setswana would be different even though there are bits of English in the song. She said in her album she does not feature anyone because she wants to build her brand first and show people the direction that she wants to give to her genre. “I created my own sound which makes me stand out,” she said, adding that she doesn’t rule out features but she will do them in her next album. At the moment, she just wants people to understand her sound. She said Setswana will always be dominant in hers songs.
