Lebo releases scorcher

MASERU — Controversial musician Lebohang Motsoela has got a Christmas present for her fans — a 10-track scorcher of a gospel album, titled Modumesene.
Motsoela —  the 32-year-old artiste affectionately known as Lebo who rose to fame when she released two albums on behalf of the All Basotho Convention (ABC) party, Ho Thata ho Rona and Masire buoa ‘Nete and another politically charged recording Sello sa Basotho last year —  dropped her latest production last week, which she describes simply as “family music”.
Modumesene — her first gospel recording to date, and Lebo’s fourth album in two years — is therefore, a completely different offering in which she sings God’s praises in different African languages, mainly Sesotho, Zulu and Xhosa.
The album, she says, has been composed with the purpose of  “healing broken hearts” and making sure people feel God’s love and presence in their lives.
“This is music that can be listened to, by everyone regardless of their age,” she said.
“In short, this is an album for the entire family.”
Lebo, who is originally from Thaba-Bosiu, is confident Modumesene would be a hit with the fans because of its “uniqueness”.
My music is very different from other gospel albums because of the way I sing,” she said
“It is very original; I don’t imitate any other musician in any of the songs on the album. The music, I can say, is quite unique.”
She said the decision to branch into gospel came after realising Christianity was “slowly dying”.
“Ke qhololitsoe ke hore bokreste bo bonahala bo ntse bo lahlela lefatséng ka kakaretso (I was compelled to release a gospel album after realising Christianity is slowing dying around the world),” she said.
“My music has tried to help in healing listeners by making sure they rely on God, for their everyday needs; in whatever they do.”
