YOUNG performer Mosioua Monaheng, originating from Botshabelo, is working towards his childhood dream to be an accomplished music producer.

Going by the stage name Troy-M, he seems to be on the right track, having already dished out two singles with ultra-genres.

He debuted in the music industry with the self-produced single, “Tseba”, meaning “know” in 2015. On Friday (08/07) he launched his second single, “No Lie”, at a function in his home town of Botshabelo.

Troy-M’s first single did not make it to the national radio station’s play-list. Locally it was well received by making it on community radio stations and club DJs play-lists.

He said he was working on a complete album he planned to launch next year.

Troy-M said the progress made thus far was in line with his mission to make his childhood dream a reality. He began in 2009 to shape his dream in a classroom at the Monokotswai High School in Botshabelo.

“It all began in a classroom, using rulers and my hands to perfect my drum playing. My desk would be the drum.”

He was inspired by the late Bojo Mujo (Jacky Tshepang Lehlake) and others, including the American record producer Dr Dre (Andre Romelle Young).

Troy-M completed gr. 12 in 2014 and he took the initiative to learn about music production for the whole of 2015, exploring Sound Engineering from his in-house studio.

The same year his talent saw him signing a deal with a Thaba Nchu-based record company, but they parted ways six months after that.

The year 2016 seems to favour Troy-M.

He is currently studying sound engineering at the Practical Audio Solutions Academy in Bloemfontein and is also working with the clothing label CPOV, platform Free State Art Fusion, the promotion art company, 2 Nice, rapper Guerrilla 32 and Tee Justice, artists working in the North-West.

Troy-M is one of the artists performing at the Hop-Hip Steez Club in Bloemfontein. For bookings, contact Troy-M on 082-932-3455.
