Thabang Molefe, who goes by the name Hydro, has released an album titled Dimapo which is an infusion of folk music, jazz, contemporary poetry and traditional music. "Dimapo was inspired by the support I had from my friends and from where I come from and also by the fans who felt every piece of my music.

He said Dimapo was his first album and it was recorded at SkitBeatz Studio and produced by Mokgweetsi Skit Kabomo. “This is the first time portraying myself as a musician.
