South African-based Motswana DJ, Tlhwaafalang Tebogo known as DJ Twaza in the music industry, recently released a new album dubbed Umuhle.
Umuhle has 15 songs and features DJ Active, Sindi Nkosazana, Leone Lee, General Stawila, Thapelo wa Mojuta and Obakeng Sengwaketse. DJ Twaza told Arts & Culture that the album is doing well in South Africa. “This album is a package that is rich with all songs promising to be a hit. You will never have enough of it once you listen to it. The title track song #Umuhle is a good song for partying. It talks about a beautiful partner and also explains how the couple can never break up no matter what. Another one is Cilo Cilo, that has got drum beats that can make someone forget the money he or she spend partying,” he said.
The Majwaneng native added that one of the beautiful songs in the album features Leone Lee, which is about an individual who goes around declaring their love for their partners but fails showing the same love they talk about to them.
The album was produced in South Africa by General Stawila, DJ Active, Thapelo wa Mojuta, DJ Twaza and Mr 21 DJ Dance. He said apart from that album, he had two albums also doing well in South Africa. “Usually my support is international. Botswana does not go for talent to tell the truth. They better book names, than to have quality album. You should have more money to invest on our career. That is the challenge we have. The money we spend on the trip going to the producers, accommodation and food is substantial,” he pointed out.
Furthermore, he explained that radio stations played his songs every day and that inspired and made him produce more albums so that he benefits from royalties especially in Botswana.
He further thanked Pula Roofing Company and Ecopath Pathology for supporting him as well as Lalavuka Zobas Company that sponsored his project saying without them he was nothing.
