Mmatema Moremi

Mmatema Moremi’s career as a musician has made her a star since her stint on Idols season 11, although she might not have won the title, she has managed to win thousands of hearts, creating a fanbase to jump-start her career.

Moremi has been singing since she was 10-years-old, and she says that it was her first experience of hearing a full band that ignited the passion for music in her.

“I was on stage with over five hundred people in the arena and I actually hijacked that performance, I was just there to sing acapella, then I heard a string for the first time, a band in my head for the first time and I was like, I’m not stopping. I sang a Brenda Fassie number and the eldest said: “She’s gonna make it, she gonna be a star, she’s gonna do this and that…” she said in a recent interview on Afternoon Express.

Moremi's captivating personality and passion for singing even scored her a gig as a television personality on a gospel show, Gospel Unplugged, but her first love will always be music. 

“...I do have a degree but the calling just kept pushing me towards this destiny that I’m in but music has always been the first love for me and that’s why, even on Gospel Unplugged, they saw that she’s a singer and she can present so let’s put the two together…”
