GOSPEL SINGER Mohau Kodisang recently released his long-awaited debut album.

Kodisang’s ten-track offering is called Satane O Swabile, and with his mature voice and unique sound, Kodisang is set to take the music industry by storm.

Satane O Swabile is a collection of inspiring gospel songs and the whole album boasts of a strong message guaranteed to touch your heart.

The powerful opening track, Sefapanong, makes you want to throw your hands in the air and give thanks to the Lord.

Hailing from Thaba Nchu’s Zone 4, east of Bloemfontein, Kodisang said he was happy to have finally realised his dream of becoming a recording gospel artist.

“I wanted to release this album last year, but after a few setbacks I learnt that the timing had not been perfect.

“My fans have been asking me when I would be releasing my album.

“I’m excited that it is finally out,” Kodisang told Express.

“I was under so much pressure thinking my fans would think that I’m taking them for granted for delaying to record the album.

“But their undying support endured and my fears were unfounded,” he said.

He said his biggest challenge now was to market his music in and around the Mangaung Metro.

“Most people in Thaba Nchu, especially in Makurung and Sediba Trust, know what I’m capable of and they have been supporting me through thick and thin.

“If people know what you can do it is less stressful than having to prove your talents.

“A lot of people in my area know who I am, what I can do and cannot do.

“But it is difficult to convince people who don’t know you to buy your music,” said Kodisang.

The 48-year-old said his inspiration to write songs was driven by his mood.

“Most of the songs I write are when I’m either very sad or very happy.”

Songs to look out for from the CD include Ha Kena Le Jesu, Ke Tsamaya Leseding, Tshela Moya, Modimo Wa Dikgutsana and Ke Waka Morena.

Kodisang started singing while he was a learner at the Tlhabaki Intermediate School, singing in the school choir. He continued to sing for the school choir when he moved to the Sediti High School in his home town.

“Music is in my blood. I grew up listening to reggae and disco music. My favourite artist was Lucky Dube.

“But I developed a love for gospel music later in my life.

These days I listen mostly to gospel music and my favourite musician is Deborah Fraser,” he said.

Kodisang’s album is available for R60.
