‘Mmaborotho’ drops Chiwele


Ogomoditse Mokenti, popularly known as Mmaborotho after her song in which she expressed her and fellow Batswapong's love for bread, has released a new album called Chiwele.

With her latest release, Mokenti brought together a few talented producers and recorded at different studios such as Drumpries Studios by Guffy Keipeile, DJ Call Me Studios by DJ Call Me, Limkings Records by DJ Bazzy and DJ Bino. Sygosh, as the singer is also known, explained that the song was inspired by the ancient tale of Chiwele she learnt at a young age that taught her that children should always listen to their elders or parents.

Born at Borotsi in Tswapong village, Sygosh started her music career in 2006 as a dancer at Muslims Crew. She later started her music journey where she released House Kwasa songs but this year she decided to release a single dubbed Ha kena Motho, which is a commercial house music. "There is a Setswana saying that 'Ngwana yoo sa utlweng molao wa batsadi o utlwa wa manong' meaning that a child that does not listen to elders advises end up regretting it because of bad decisions they make in life despite having been warned about the outcomes of their actions. Most of my songs on the album are about Gender-Based Violence (GBV). I was once abused physically and emotionally.
