He has collaborated with Motswafere on a single song, as a way of grooming and mentoring the upcoming talent. “I have chosen to work with him to just empower him because the young man is talented and it is difficult for the upcoming artistes to perform at a gig,” he said.
He further said that he aims at helping him play with good musicians for experience. The duo worked with Tshepo Lesole on the song that they would also perform at the show dubbed ‘Wild Romance’. Motswafere describes Wild Romance as a love song that was inspired by experiences about heartbreaks.
“It talks about the experience of stepping out of a bad relationship one has been clinging to for a long time, and later on get into a one-night relationship that gives one a glimpse of what they have been missing from the previous relationship in a short period of a night,” explains Motswafere.
He says that working with Kapenda has exposed him to all corners of the music that he did not know, because Kapenda is just the best and equipped with all the experience within the industry. He emphasizes that he appreciates the guitarist’s wonderful work and that their collaboration is just something special
