After being in the music industry for a long time, Monnamogolo wa Thulaganyo has finally got his career breakthrough following the release of his hit song, Thoma ka Serethe, which went viral on different social media platforms.

Hailing from Serowe, Kgomotsego Bareetsi, said he has been in the local music industry since 2015. He started his music career singing traditional music. Bareetsi told Showtime that even though he was not famous over the past years, he released songs such as Somola Tsenya, Kgarebe se mo Neele and Lepiano la Botswana.

Monnamogolo wa Thulaganyo, who has now been given a nickname, Thoma ka Serethe after the song, has said even though he released the song in November last year, he never dreamt that it would make him so popular. The song has sparked some hilarious dance challenges on social media including in neighbouring South Africa with some struggling to adhere to the simple instructions from the song. “We were still dancing it at my home village. We posted it on Facebook after dancing at a wedding recently. We got positive feedback from the public so I had faith that it was going to make it big.
