Reality show Coca Cola Pop Stars TV sensation Letang is back on our musical radar with a long anticipated single titled “Vusani.”
You’ll remember the songstress’ rise to fame as a member of hit makers Adilah; and now she has returned to give us her best work yet!
Born in the 80’s in Tshwane’s vibrant township of Soshanguve, Letang Tlome is a professionally trained musician, recording artist, songwriter, studio session musician, vocal coach and award-winning live performer.
Letang comes from a musical family, with both her parents, Eva Toiki and father, Peter Mosioa Tlome, having been part of their local church choir. Her mother noticed a keen interest in singing and went on to enter her into various competitions.
With her raw talent, the young Letang dominated the scene and brought home silverware from platforms such as the 1999 Centurion Music Festival and the Star Search TV Show on SABC 1.
The songbird’s abilities were further refined when she enrolled in 2000 at the National School of the Arts in Johannesburg, qualifying with a Diploma in Music, majoring in Vocals. This set her on a course that would include musical theatre, where she toured South Africa as part of a production called Pulse of Africa.
This opened other doors, including being chosen to be part of the 2003 Coca Cola Popstars group Adilah. The quintet dazzled not only local fans, but enjoyed successful tours internationally, including Paris.
Not one to be boxed into a specific category, Letang released a gospel hit in 2017 entitled It’s Not Over, garnering even more fans who had no idea she was such a versatile musician. This allowed her to explore her various talents, including being a musical storyteller.
Her latest single is “Vusani” tells the tale of a woman who has endured tough circumstances; she has seen her friends prosper while her life continues to be difficult. She now pleads with her ancestors to help so that her life takes a more positive direction.
This single is part of her upcoming album that will be released in the later part of 2019, cementing her as an all-round musician. Audiences will relate to the musical ode to South African women, as her stories are authentic.
“Vusani” is guaranteed to provide an unforgettable listening experience as she takes you through her spiritual journey.
