A Free State-based artist Teboho Moruti is making waves in the music industry with his latest gospel song, Ntata Rona, which features SABC presenter Seipati Seoke, also known as Twasa. Born and bred in Botshabelo, Moruti is a talented artist which is expected to take the Free State to another level musically with his sensational gospel songs.
Moruti said working with the legendary Twasa has been a dream come true, especially in such a short space of time with him having just gotten into the music industry.The singer described how his passion for music started when he was still in primary school and how he realised his talent for the entertainment industry when he was always requested to be master of ceremonies and perform at school events from Grade 4 until his high school years. He told Bloemfontein Courant his hit single, Ntata Rona, received an overwhelming response from fans across the country, including neighboring countries after it had been released last year.
“The song trended at a time when I least expected it. It really took a turn I had never anticipated. Since 2012, I have been involved in numerous recording projects that never succeeded. When I decided to go solo and record my own album in 2019, my aim was to sell the CDs around Bloemfontein, but God had other plans. The collection of songs in the album is a prayer for His will to be done. May it be done,” said Moruti.
He added he hopes this will not only be a stepping stone in his music career, but also more of a learning opportunity. He was proud to have shared the stage with talented musicians such as Lebo Sekgobela, Teboho Moloi and Sello Malete and he learned a lot from them as a newcomer. His desire is to own his brand, uplift, create opportunities and unleash young talent, particularly those who are in the entertainment industry. His favourite quote is: “The art of life is not made up of great sacrifice or duties, but of little things in which smiles, kindness and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort”.
Moruti said what this quote means to him is that nothing in this world is too huge and nothing in this world is so incomprehensible for it not to matter to the next individual. He concluded by saying the smallest things in life matter the most.
