Traditionally, it has been the son who carries on, not only the name but the profession of the head of the family, whether in politics, sport or entertainment.

But it has been proven on many occasions that it is the daughter who often carries on with the tradition. In this case that daughter is Winnie Teanet, the daughter of famous Shangaan disco star Forsta.

Born into a music family, Teanet has just released her first album titled Winnie Teanet Vol-1. Born in Fobeni village outside Tzaneen, Limpopo, the young lady is dynamite that is ready to explode.

Her eight-track album was recorded and mastered by her father. It has beautiful tracks such as Wani Hlamarisa and Ntwanano, that should make you dance.

Teanet said the album accommodates both young and old. "In many songs in the album I am talking to the youth, especially the young girls who prefer older men."

Asked why she chose disco than kwaito, she said: "Disco is the music that runs in the family. I do not want to see it dying. I grew up listening to the music because my family did it."

Teanet, who is still at school, says she would never allow fame to go to her head. She's in Grade 9 at Ngwana Masedi Higher Primary.

"My studies come first and music follows. I want to raise enough funds to study medicine when I finish my matric."

Teanet says she was introduced to music by her father at a young age. "My father released his first album at the age of 14 and I have also done the same. Most importantly, I think the Teanet family was born to entertain people with music. We have six musicians in the family."
