Nono Siile, who is a gifted self-taught jazz artist of note, has come back with a single titled ‘Thoriso’, which she composed as tribute for President Mokgweetsi Masisi.

In an interview with Arts & Culture, Nono Siile said she chose to do this song about Masisi to appreciate the President, as she feels artists do not really appreciate people for their great deeds. The singer also said Masisi deserves all this praise that she is giving him as she feels that ‘Masisi o itshiametse hela’ which is one of the lines from the song. Nono Siile added that Masisi has done some great things which have been overlooked for many years. She mentioned things like the old age pension benefit, which was increased some time back last year, and for this Nono Siile says this one of the reasons why Masisi deserves all the praise that he can get from all sides.

She said Masisi has also shown his support for the creative industry, which has not always been taken seriously by many. “Masisi has really done a lot for us. This industry has been overlooked for many years and Masisi in his reign has started to shake things up to better the industry,” she said. “He has done a road show specifically for the creative arts, which looked at unleashing new talent by giving them that platform that they can use to market themselves,” she added. On other matters, Nono Siile advised artists to make a habit of composing appreciation songs and praising people who have impacted their lives.
