NEW BEGININGS: Sasa Klaas and Phat Joe.

One of the most recognised female rappers in the country, Sasa Klaas looks set for a busy 2018.

The sultry singing sensation has teamed up with South African TV personality, Phat Joe on a new television show dubbed ‘Highly Inappropriate with Phat Joe’.

The rapper, who was born Sarona Motlhagodi, will also release her much awaited sophomore album later this year whilst her first serious TV role, where she will star in a drama called ‘Pillars’, is expected to air soon.

The’ Highly Inappropriate’ project will make its debut on DStv next Wednesday (February 14th). Sasa Klass, who is the daughter of politician Anna Motlhagodi, will co-host the show and will also act as the programme’s DJ.

Taking to Twitter last week to tweet his excitement ahead of the maiden broadcast, Phat Joe posted, “We cooking something special for you @sasaklaas.”

This week the ‘A ke mo khandeng’ singer also tweeted to her 19, 000plus followers, “New co host on a television show, I’m one of the lead roles in a soapie called Pillars coming to BTV soon and I’m working on my album while in talks with a major distributor. It’s only February but thank you 2018.”

Sasa Klaas burst onto the scene back in 2013 with her debut single HADSAN (Hustle All Day Stunt All Night) and has remained one of the most talked about female rappers in the country. Apart from her eccentric dance moves on stage, the star is synomous for her witty punch lines and daring dress sense.

Her love life has also received much media attention, having famously dated Olympic Silver medalist Nijel Amos and fellow rapper Ozi F Teddy.

Last December, the ‘Mma Mongwato’ hit-maker became the first Motswana to perform at the DStv iRock festival in Rustenburg, where she received positive reviews for her pulsating performance.
