MOSOTHO musician MOOKHO Moqhali will today headline the South African Rugby World Cup win party at Bermondsey, in London.
The party is in celebration of the Springboks’ 32-12 win over England in Japan last weekend.
Mookho will be accompanied by UK based DJs and musicians among them LeboQuest, KhayaDeep, King Tee and others.
Also a lawyer, the award-winning afro-jazz, neo-soul, afro-pop and gospel has been in the UK since September 2019 on a Chavening Scholarship which ends next October.
Mookho told the Xpress People yesterday that she was excited to be performing at an event to celebrate the Springboks’ win.
I am looking forward to tomorrow,” Mookho said.
“My latest album Itholele is a personal journey and I am thrilled at the prospect of sharing a piece of myself with the audience here. I am not a believer in coincidences, so it’s my stern belief that it was designed for me to be here for a time such as this, singing to celebrate with South Africa such a phenomenal and historic experience of winning the Rugby World Cup. I am humbled and happy about it.
“I am looking forward to performing alongside DJ LeboQuest our new Tribal Deep House collaboration called Siya Phambili.”
Mookho began singing when she was just 13 and burst onto the local music scene with her multi-genre debut album titled Ha Re Eeng Hae in 2015. She released her sophomore album Itholele in August this year. The album has been selling fairly well on online platforms.
She is also a winner of the Best Jazz Artiste and Best Album in the Ultimate Music Awards last year.
She has worked with the likes of Puseletso Seema, with whom she has collaborated on an afro-sotho pop single titled Mphe Mphe Ea Lapisa in 2017. The single was produced by Taks Beats and was launched in 2018.
Mookho Moqhali is expected to perform back home for the 15th annual Letofe Sounds of Blue concert at the Thaba-Bosiu Cultural Village on 21 December 2019.
