Botswana’s electro music new arrival Kenaleone ‘Feine’ Mosekiemang has followed up the hype around her maiden single Coconut Fans with a debut album and a video titled At War.
The video is already being viewed on YouTube with her management expected to take it to local television stations this week.
Three months ago, American photographer Lauren Rheims hailed the 17-year-old after hearing Coconut Fans and likened her to Barbadian songstress Rihanna.
Rheims went on to design the album cover for the single free of charge.
The Moeding student’s management this week confirmed the successful recording of the video and her new album, Feine With The Single Stars. “The video is done and already on You Tube, we will be taking it to eBotswana and Btv,” said the teen’s manager, Black Gypsy (Kealeboga Mosekiemang).
The daring teenager has already spelt out her intentions to enter the video for this year’s Botswana Musician Union awards.
Winning an award would cap off a fine first year in music for the Form Four student who Rheims described as an ‘extraordinary musical talent’. “I like Feine because she has a power house sound and extraordinary musical talent. She is great at expressing herself in her
Black Gypsy said: “The album has six awesome tracks and we expect the songs to be playing on radio soon. It’s her first at the age of 17. The idea of releasing the video at the same time is to hype up the album.”
Feine is thrilled by her progress and is convinced she is yet to produce world-class music. Her dream remains to be taking her music international. “I want to go with international music. I grew up listening to international music and that is where I draw my inspiration,” she said. The young artist already has a deal with Tanzania’s Swahili Digital International Distribution that ensures her music is sold on online platforms.
The teenager is convinced her musical talent is inherited from her parents who sing in the church choir.
Apart from music, the Form Four student likes drawing and has had that second talent earning her praises from her peers.
