MASERU — The reigning Miss Vodacom People’s Choice FM Retlotliloe Moiloa is pursuing a career in music.

Having realised that good looks alone cannot sustain a career, Moiloa decided to broaden her horizons by venturing into music.

She forms part of the acapella trio Eyedentity comprising; Palesa Matia, Keke Ramaruo and Moiloa herself.

“Although I always had the passion for music, I never saw it as something I would do as a career.

“I met Keke and Palesa at a youth camp in Quthing way back in 2006. We started singing there but due to the fact that we were from different places and schools, we parted till we met again at NUL last year and then joined a church choir there.

“Later on we decided to form a group that was aimed at shaking up the music industry. We decided to do acapella because we have harmonic voices and this makes it easier as composing a beat through instruments is quite a hustle,” Moiloa said in an interview with the Weekender on Monday.

But her aspirations do not end in beauty and music. Hers is one of those unique cases where beauty comes with brains. The versatile 22-year-old beauty queen is also training to be a lawyer.

Moiloa has just completed a Bachelor of laws degree at the National University of Lesotho and will be graduating soon.

“Beauty pageants are too demanding as one has to work hard to ensure that she maintains the looks so I don’t see the genre as means a of living I can rely on, I prefer it as a side-gig.

“Well, music is slowly getting the exposure that it needs so I believe our group will shine in no time. The law studies I enrolled in will assist me in ensuring that I know everything about my legal rights,” Moiloa said.

Moiloa will be handing over the crown to this year’s Miss Vodacom PC and says she will be taking a break from competing in beauty pageants.

“After the crown is given to someone else, I have decided that I will withdraw from contesting in pageants so I can exert more effort in music and ensuring
