Perhaps the only Kwaito female artist to ever come out of Botswana, Makhesho – real name Keletso Seeletso – is yet again making Kwaito lovers dance to her vibey tunes.
Her eight-year long absence from the local music has been cut by her re-introduction of single ‘B.U.S.Y’ produced by the famous and talented producer, Suffocate of Rock Lefatshe Production studio.
It is with no doubt that the local Kwaito scene has not seen a hot new track in a while and the mother of three promises just that.
The visibly ecstatic Makhesho said her track offers nothing but a dance vibe that will have any music lover on their toes.
“The track was released in February 18, 2019 and is enjoying airplay in most if not all radio stations in the country,” she said, promising her fans and music lovers alike a scorching hot music video which is currently being put together.
She relishes the idea of working with her musical mentor, legendary Botswana Kwaito artist, Coloza. According to Makhesho, Coloza is the first person to ever hear her sing back in 2005 and recommended Kwaito as a music genre she should pursue. “I was skeptical of his advice but he got me to listen to some South African artist who he believed I sang like, so I trusted his guidance and I became a Kwaito artist,” she reminisced.
Between chuckles, she also remembered that before meeting Coloza, she had always wanted to sing pop music like the Unik Attraction trio who later became household names. Be that as it may, Makhesho does not regret going a different path and pursuing her Kwaito career.
Her producer, Suffocate said the return of Makhesho has set the internet buzzing with Kwaito lovers asking for more.
“We have not started working on an album at the moment but we will release another single soon to sample the market for her,” he said. The producer also said the return of Makhesho could not have come at a better time because there are not many Kwaito artists in Botswana with her musical talent and experience.
“There is just one Kwaito group with a heavy presence and once they’ve released any material, they go on to promote it leaving a void of new material,” he observed. He also, in the same breath, noted that the scenario presents an opportunity for the Kwaito lady to fill in the gap and keep the momentum going.
Because she has been off the grid for quite some time, Suffocate has lined up a few collaborations with local artists, who are equally excited to work with her. “Hopefully her first producer, Coloza, will also come on board and help resurrect her career,” he smiled.
The track is available on all social media platforms including Facebook and WhatsApp.
