Upcoming kwaito artist, Gomolemo Thepa aka Shamele recently released his single titled Dula Stilo to honour President Mokgweetsi Eric Masisi.

The 27-year-old man told Arts & Culture that moving from his home village Serowe to Gaborone he was following his dream to dance, but because of life’s commitments and trying to get an education, things did not work out as planned.
