Well, today according to Botswana Media, Thato Jessica is loving living in SA and she wants to work with Nasty C.
- Music wise, how has your on-going move from Botswana to South Africa been like?
Moving into a new country has been exciting and scary. Exciting because, I am finally doing what I love in a city that is able to give me the platforms I need to progress as a musician and scary because I have never lived in a big city before and adjusting to this way of life sometimes a bit daunting. I still travel a lot between the two countries so I still get to see my family often. I’m meeting amazing people in South Africa who are making this such a beautiful experience. I’m truly thankful to be here.
- Tell us about your experience of being a Motswana singer/songwriter being feature in South African media over the last few weeks?
The past few weeks have been amazing, I’m truly thankful for everyone who has shared my story and invited me over to their platforms. What is it truly humbling experience, and I’m excited for what is to come. I have hope that through this more people can discover my music. South Africa sets the tone for the entertainment industry in many parts of Africa and this has brought me closer to my dream, to reach Africa.
- You have shared stages with musical giants like Lecrae, Salif Keita, and Cassper Nyovest, what has been your most surreal moment?
- One moment I will always cherish and remember was the first time I picked up the mic and got to sing on stage. I remember how quiet the crowd was when I walked on stage, That was the first time I felt and knew that singing is what I’m meant to do, this was in 2011 when our group was the opening act for Lecrae’s African Unashamed tour.
- Favorite local artist outside of the Hip-Hop and R&B scene?
Definitely, Black Coffee. From his unique sound, authenticity and humble personality, not only is he a fave but also someone to look up to.
Who would you like to work with, both locally and internationally?
Locally I would love to work with, Sjava, Black Motion, Sun-El, Nasty C , Sho Madjozi, and internationally, definitely Wiz kid, Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, Chris Brown (maybe) & KELLY ROWLAND! Love her!
