Tšepe leaves fans in suspense

They were one of the biggest hip-hop movements in Lesotho whose slogan, Tšepe, would turn heads each time it was uttered.

However, the last time the D2a-Majoe crew made waves was when they challenged Motswako rappers to a battle at the Netherlands Hall in Roma in November 2013. This was after the crew had just dropped the single Malekoporo from their upcoming Nalane album.

The track was well-received by the public, making the album one of the most anticipated productions that would usher fans into 2014 in style, but the sad news is fans are still waiting for the CD.
It is only recently that the crew started uploading links on Facebook to their track L’Afrique Sans Frontieres (Africa without borders), which they say is another single Nalane.

Fans have been commenting on the post and again giving the track the thumbs-up, but some have been dissing the track, asking: “What genre is this? Is it some kind of French-kwaito?”

D2a-Majoe is arguably one of the most versatile musical groups Lesotho has ever produced.
The group is able to give its sound different tastes by rapping in different languages, including French, which has never been done by anyone in this country.

But the prolonged suspense the group has left the fans in, has raised questions about whether it is due to the departure of one of their best members, Boshoa Bo Tšoeroe, or has the steel (Tšepe) simply rusted?

Boshoa Bo Tšoeroe on Friday confirmed he has left the group, but would not give reasons why.

“Yes, I am no longer part of D2a-Majoe movement due to a number of reasons, which I am not at liberty to disclose at the moment,” the rapper said.
