FAMO musician, Peter Moruthoane, now known as Tau ea Matšekheng has collaborated with the veteran famo songstress Pusello Seema known as ‘M’e Mpuse on an Extended Play (EP) dubbed Sello saka scheduled for release in July.
Previously known as Preezy, the singer told the Weekender in a recent interview that the collaboration is his best achievement in music since he moved from RnB a modernised famo sound.
‘M’e Mpuse is an eloquent storyteller, who communicates her messages through famo and has been in in the industry for over three decades.
On the EP, the two have focused on death and the toll it takes on Basotho.
“The biggest song on this EP is called Ho lekane Morena which talks about different fatal accidents like the one where several Basotho where burnt and died in South Africa,” Tau ea Matšekheng said.
He said the other songs were Thola Mpuse, Kanana, Ngoana Mafatše. He also said they are also working on two more tracks whose titles would be announced in due course.
Tau ea Matšekheng said the release of the album will be followed by a tour which will start in Maseru.
“We are planning a tour around the country after the release of the EP so that we get a chance to perform the songs we released and see how the market will react to them,” he said.
He said taking baby steps in the famo genre, he has benefited from ‘Me Mpuse’s wisdom which has inspired him to work harder.
“’M’e Mpuse heard about me from one of her grandchildren and liked my work and that is how the collaboration was born.
Since we started working together, I have gained so much wisdom from her and that has inspired to work even harder,” he said.
Tau ea Matšekheng said working with ‘M’e Mpuse has also made him develop self-belief.
“It’s funny because I had only planned one song with her but because of the connection we had in music and because of our common vision, we ended up making four songs,” Tau ea Matšekheng said.
He added he admires ‘M’e Mpuse for her talent which enabled her to spontaneously participate in the composition of four tracks in just two weeks.
He said besides the other two tracks they are already working on, their followers must expect the duo to work together in future.
