The man whose real name is Ishmael Otlaadisa will release a single called Naledi today, which will mark his comeback.
Ghavorr released his one and only album in 2007 called Face to Face which went onto scoop the best kwaito album at the BOMU awards that year.

“We need to be very careful about our lyrical content,” added Ghavorr, who is currently a pastor at Humble Before Christ Church in Lobatse.
