Ogomoditse Mokenti, stage name Sygosh, has released a new single dubbed Ha Kena Motho. Ha Kena Motho is a song about being single and being ready to start life from scratch by meeting a new person to build a future with.
She is also known as Mmaborotho from her song Borotho, which is taken from her second album dubbed Dondobeleja. She began her music career as a Mosakaso queen. However, she has now switched to house music because of the market demand. Sygosh currently has two albums and three singles. She writes her songs and some are written by Seabotseng Deboy Bafeletse. “The public’s response to my new song is very massive.
They love the song.
They are calling me day and night talking about the song. Bookings are also currently flowing. I have never had this kind of response before. I used social media such as my Facebook page ‘Sygosh’, YouTube and Mediafire. I am different from other artists as most of the time I use Setswapong in my songs,” she said.
Speaking of the challenges she faces as an artist, she revealed that people were not yet ready to pay them, adding that they take local artistes for granted as some would call them and ask them to perform for small money or to perform for free.
However, she explained that recording in South Africa gave her a big opportunity as South Africans expressed desire to collaborate with her. Sygosh further said the local market is not bad but determined by the effort an artiste puts on their work. “To upcoming artistes, the market is determined by your work. If you do not work hard then o tlo sala.
I would love to thank Tiro wa Platinum iCons (Palapye Riverview) mall for the sponsorship.
He made my dream come true. People should like my Facebook page Sygosh, subscribe to my YouTube channel and I promise that more hits are coming,” she said.
