Mmannyeu�s tent collapses

Borankana new entrant, Kamogelo ‘Mmannyeu’ Moemedi, comes on to the scene with a very unique lyrical style. Most noteworthy is the creative way she uses metaphors to cushion some of the lewd meaning of her lyrics.

The title track of her debut album Tante E Ole sounds innocent with the lyrics; “thusang ka kwano/ thusang Ra-Refilwe, tante e ole/motse wa thubega/kgarametsa hela/ iteke rra balekane bagago båa tsoga ba go tshega/bare o paletswe ke lwapa’. In the second verse she sings:  ‘bogolo leka ka kereke/ eya dingakeng/ re age lelwapa.”

This song about a man whose marriage is threatened by erectile dysfunction. The concerned wife is pleading with her husband to seek help through prayer, or even traditional medicine to revive his manhood. She even threatens to leave if the problem persists. The same cheeky lyrical antics can be heard in the third track Majita.
