A University of Botswana Geology student Kamogelo Moswaane, who hails from Ramotswa is a rare gem on the rise in the music industry.

Set to become our very own disco queen, the award winning Moswaane, known as Nkamozuki in music circles has released her second album titled Ke Happy, in the popular music genre synonymous with the late South African bubble gum music maestro, Dan Tshanda and his proteges, the Dalom kids.

Having bagged the BOMU award for the best disco album in 2021 and scooping second position in the back track category of the president competitions last year out of 130 artists, Nkamozuki looks set for a bright future.

The 27-year old muso’s ten-tracked banging album with the tittle hit track, Ke Happy was recorded at The Bullet Studio and released in December last year.

The other nine songs on it are; Nametso, Gratitude, Di Washene, Don’t bother me, Se mmolaye, Shapa dikatara, Woman of power and Hey wena.

“The response I have been getting from the public concerning the album is that its impressive. It’s available for sale via compact discs through social media,” said Nkamozuki whose background in disco music is undeniably rich and vast. My Uncle Nico T had a band called Flying Sounds, which I joined in 2004, it produced both township reggae as well as disco, based here in Ramotswa.

“It was my exact time to learn disco music, how to sing and to play bass guitar, and I got to know Khoza Mkhozeni, one of the big disco artists in Botswana 16 years ago as he was often also part of our music shows,” said the energetic young woman.

Nkamozuki started to rub shoulders with greatness in 2017, when she backed Neo Chesa for her album titled Mofokeng.

In 2018 she became a backing vocalist for Khoza Mkhozeni’s album named Morena before she went on to become yet a back up artist for another disco queen Ounah.

After plying her trade as a back up vocalist for up to 10 disco artists, Nkamozuki finally went solo in 2019 and dropped her first album dubbed; Stop fighting produced by the former splash sound engineer, Thando Zinto at Bullet Productions, featuring Khoza Mkhozeni and Neo Chesa.

She also boasts a single titled Common Enemy (corona virus.)
