  • “The first song I ever learnt to sing was Maxwell’s ‘This Woman’s Work’ when I was in Standard One. He’s one of the artists who’ve taught me how to always put all my emotions into my performances.
  • “I couldn’t be happier to be the first live performing artist from Botswana to grace their main stage. Thank you to MultiChoice Botswana for always making way for creatives in Botswana outside of the country.”
  • “I’ve always wanted to put out my own body of work because I felt like I have a lot to say through my music. I am a genre fluid musician, who just makes all kinds of music and I don’t believe in categories.”
  • “I started singing since my consciousness, and I haven’t stopped since. Music has always been a vital part of my life, mainly because I come from a musical family. It has always been my way of expressing myself. I was always the child that never talked about emotions, so I used Music as a way of me communicating how I feel.”
  • “it took me 5 years and I was born on the 5th, hence the title Grace, because biblically 5 is the number of Grace. The theme is Yin and Yang, if you notice my dress code is mostly black and white. The EP tells a story of the ups and downs of so many love stories.”
