Shuping's last songs recorded

By Patience Bambalele | Oct 11, 2011 | COMMENTS [ 3 ]

GOSPEL singer Tebogo Motaung feels honoured to have been chosen to sing a selection of songs, written by the late Oleseng Shuping, for a recently released CD.

The 12-track album, called Melaetsa ya Bofelo ya Oleseng , hit the shelves three-months ago.

The inspiring and soul touching album features an incredible tribute, with Motaung's voice sounding exactly like the late singer.

"It was such an honour to be asked by Cool Spot and the late Oleseng to sing his songs. I feel honoured because he was my idol. I looked up to him, that is why I sound like him," he says.

Melaetsa ya Bofelo ya Oleseng has already sold 20000 copies.

"Oleseng produced one of my albums and the reason he chose me to sing his songs before he died was that I sound like him. The royalties from the CD will be shared with his family," Motaung said.

Ken Haycock of Cool Spot explained: "Once we realised that Oleseng's voice was not going to be strong enough to complete the project he had recorded, we recruited a singer who could do justice to the songs."

He added: "We submitted a short list of candidates and Oleseng chose Tebogo to complete the project which, as it turned out, were the last songs he wrote."

Motaung started singing in 1988.

He has worked with people like Mojeremane and Solly Moholo. The GaRankuwa-born singer has released albums such as Eli-Eli, Thabeng tsa Sione and Morena Mphe Matla.

What's up with coolspot and its fake artists, Mr. Motaung y are u calling urself "Mokgethwa", do u really knw the meaning of mokgethwa, pls get urself a brand that will facilitate the process of u getin renowned. Ohh....., mayb u havnt yet noticed, there's no similarities @ all between ur vocal that of the genuine mokgethwa, I mean Oleseng "Osh....." Shuping. Do the fans of this very legend a favour by respecting his name and leaving his music alone, the guy is still happening nonetheless his carnally non-existence and we still comfortable with his music. Stop trying to refine Oleseng's music since it came out refined, u are just trying to raise-up the deads and I dnt think u are loaded enough to can perform that.
Ur story doesnt add up chief, pls try sumthing else as Oleseng's last tracks were released in his album titled "Tsa bofelo". What u doin is construed as trying to promote piracy.

I like keeping it original. Copies don't do it for me.

Now the poor guy will always be identified as Oleseng...and will not go beyond someone else's identity. When is he gonna be himself?
