GOSPEL musician Rorisang Motsamai has released his third studio album centred on the themes of repentance, tolerance and reconciliation.

Titled Setsoalle Le Jesu, the 10-track offering’s unmistakable Kwaito and House influences are meant to appeal to the youth. Stand-out songs such as Kae kapa Kae and Ha Re Rapela remind young people of the importance of prayer and committing their lives to Jesus Christ who makes all things possible.

In an interview with Xpress People this past week, Motsamai said the current wave of political instability and killings which affected the country had inspired him to work on music that encouraged tolerance and repentance.

“I was moved by the current killings that are paralysing the nation and through this album, I’m calling upon God to show His Mercy and save Basotho,” the Ha Pita based musician said.

“The album urges Basotho to unite in Christ. With Jesus as our Saviour, we can unite despite different political affiliations and beliefs.”

Motsamai said he was delighted by the public response to the album.

“I’ve been doing a lot of promotional performances in churches and weddings since the album’s release on 3 April.  I’m happy that people have been moved by the message and that shows the album is serving its purpose.

“People know and still love God. That is why you will find them singing or playing gospel songs while sipping alcohol at taverns and other gatherings. All that is needed is to remind them of how God wants us to conduct ourselves by seeking His kingdom first,” Motsamai said.

He promised to stage more promotional shows and urged his followers to visit his social media pages for regular updates.

Drawing inspiration from South African Gospel queen Rebecca Malope and the late pop star Brenda Fassie, Motsamai began his music career in a church choir in 1997. He went solo in 2008 and released his debut album Kena Le Jesu the same year. He followed this up with the 2014 release of Molimo O Teng.
