After pursuing a career in both music and acting, and a tireless passion and drive, she is about to release her debut solo single, Far Away, a 90s styled, smooth hip-hop soul track she wrote about her real life experience of heartbreak.
Born and raised in Mafikeng, her family moved to Bloemfontein when she was 11 years old. At age 16, Ntsebo was among the Top 9 in the Free State’s Volksblaad singing competition, Spontaan. After Matric she studied acting at AFDA Cape Town, where she formed an Afro-RnB singing duo called Nala.
In 2011, Ntsebo was among the Top 32 of MNET’s season 7 of SA IDOLS where she shared the stage with the Parlotones. After her Idols experience, she pursued a career in musical theatre where she performed in numerous productions including Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’, toured the country doing children’s theatre and also appeared on Mzanzi Magic short films.
She is currently working on her first EP, After Dark, which is a laid back, mid-tempo, hip-hop soul/ RnB project she’s co-producing with a deep house and soul music producer, Soul in Transit. Far Away is the first single off After Dark and sees her bravely stepping out and into the limelight.
Fifi Cooper Going Back To Her Roots With New Album, Take Me Back
From the first lady to boss lady, it’s now time for the release of the rapper and singer’s sophomore album: Fifi Cooper is back with a brand new album titled Take Me Back.
This is one of the most anticipated albums of 2018 and is the first project from her record label, MoCooper Records. The Motswako rapper did not hold back at all this time with her breath-taking & versatile flows that are backed-up by melodic beats.
The 21 track album includes singles like Calling featuring Moozlie and Emoyeni featuring Thabsie just to name but a few. The buzzing new single Zwagala, which is the first featured single, is already creating a craze on the radio airwaves and is being touted as THE street anthem.
When asked why the album was titled Take Me Back, this is what she had to say:
“I named it Take Me Back because in it, I am going back to my roots of Motswako. I did different things in the past because I was not in control of my creativity but now that I am my own boss, I will stick to what I know best.”
Mooketsi then added: “I wanted the album to be released in August as my way of saying RIP to Mama Winnie [Mandela]. I appreciate her teachings and it is interesting that, women like me are still going through our own struggles,”
The album dropped today and is available for streaming and purchase on all major digital stores. Fans can also look forward to the Zwagala music video which should be dropping soon.
