JOHANNESBURG – Mmatema Moremi is well on her way to making a name for herself despite her Idols SA runner-up status. She said that part of her struggles has been getting people to understand that she won’t always sing other people’s song.
The Ke Lerato singer explained that it has been a constant struggle to find a balance between singing her own songs and covers at gigs.
“I still get called to do covers but I’m glad that more and more people love my own music. I don’t really mind singing covers, I just still battle to get other people to understand the direction of music I have decided to take. But I do my own stuff as much as I can unless the situation doesn’t allow,”
She also added that the reaction to her album, Love.Praise.Worship has been a pleasant surprise, but also explained that due to all the expectations people had about where she would go after Idols SA, she was worried about the reception of her first album.
She explained that people have accepted that she is gifted. The physical copy of her album will be available in March and her fans can look forward to her DVD which drops in July.
