Tsholofelo Moatshe well known as Tsholo , She is a Gospel , pop and soul singer . She is also a composer, a Youth Coordinator (under her NPO named Hope Tsholofelo Sechabeng “HTS NPO”).

She has been to the US & UK for music festivals and conferences which she believes it’s every artist’s wildest dream
Being in the industry for such a long time(since 2003) and not yet having a breakthrough she needs.
Closed doors. She wishes it was easier to breakthrough in the music industry. Investing a lot for every little thing there is to be done from recording, marketing, competition, distribution, printing, pr etc… It’s not a child’s play especially if you don’t have an income.
She like her music to get the recognition it deserves , Her music to be played so that she may be invited to bigger stages.
