Moonga Kapambwe who goes by the stage name Moonga.K has finally released his first album, which was launched in style this past Sunday at Gaborone Club.

The former My African Dream 2009 winner has indeed come back with a bang with that mature voice and pleasant music to the ear. He still carries that energy that leaves a lot eating from the palms of their own hands. His new album, ‘Wild Solace’ which is an Alternative Soul genre astonished the audience as they all appreciated his talent.

The endowed artiste says that he has dubbed his genre Alternative Soul because of the variety of genres that it encompasses. “The album has blended different genres of music including; Afro blues, Jazz, rock, soul, RnB and a bit of Gospel,” he said.

His album, Wild Solace is a motivational album that is aimed at enlightening people that even if one goes through pain at some point in life, they would always overcome it and regain peace once again. The courageous young artiste says that the Judge’s Choice Award that he got from My African Dream in 2009 would always humble him, as it has definitely opened doors for him in his music career through exposure. He explained that he now lives by the slogan ‘Keeping the dream alive’.

This, he explains that he has now come to conquer because he is already hosting his own concerts and events, which is something that he has always wanted. He also prides himself in the fact that he has written all his songs. “I am very proud of this album, and to be precise, the people I have worked with. The album simply describes the state of mind I was at as I wrote all the songs,” he said.

The live performance went explicitly well with the audience cheering and singing along to songs from the album. Some of Moonga.K’s title songs from the 10-track album include; Let go, Walking Emoji, Fink’s wave and Incandescent. His mother, Moono Kapambwe expressed gratitude towards the people of Botswana, saying that they have always been supportive to his son and he is humbled by the fact that Moonga.K has become such a responsible young man who is not distracted and takes his passion seriously.

They have been in the music industry for only three months but Khoisan group has already secured a deal with South African record label Muthaland.

The group members recently confirmed to Vibe that they have already been adopted by the record label and are gearing to make waves across Africa and globally. Khoisan is fairly new in the music industry but the quality of work of the Marabele hit makers is impeccable as evidenced by this music deal. They tell Vibe that being endorsed by a big brand like Muthaland means a lot and they did not see it coming.

The record label is publishing a deal for their latest song Marabele together with the video. They reiterate that this really humbles them especially for the fact that they only met at an audition but are growing to be a beautiful family that they are that continues to win people’s hearts within the industry. Their music is playing not only in Botswana but across Southern Africa, something that they take pride in. The excited members expressed gratitude to their manager Suffocate of Roc Leashes for helping them make their mark.

The group members will this week tour the North West province in South Africa in continued efforts to take their music to the people. Their single Marabele is still enjoying airplay on Mafikeng FM. Said the group representative: “We don’t take this deal very lightly. We really embrace it and it is a big deal to us, as it really helps in growing us as the new comers and we are certain that it would also be easier for us to release our upcoming first album due to this deal.”

The group members also noted that they are excited that their music will be sold through renowned music store Musica. “We are honoured that our brand is growing with Botswana and will reach more people globally.”

Khoisan will release their next single dubbed Habaebone next month. The song features Bekezela. The energetic and esteemed group anticipates releasing their debut album in April or May.
