Matheke Returns With Tshotlhe Di Lokile

| May 12, 2015

Matheke Leteane on Friday, May 8 held an album review of his sixth 10-track album titled Tshotlhe di Lokile at The Big Five Lodge in Mogoditshane.

Though starting off as a young controversial man, Matheke has bold convictions and he is also bold.

Another thing a listener would love is the different elements of creativity to the music over the years thereby breaking barriers for gospel music and winning over people who could never have listened to this contemporary gospel.

“It has been difficult to get people to listen to contemporary gospel as they were drawn to the traditional category sung by the like of Phemperetlhe making it difficult to penetrate the market, but now people have changed.

After five years of backsliding from the music industry because of life’s hardships, the now elevated Pastor Matheke said his contemporary gospel album consists of worship songs which are full of anointing and power.

“Music in the past was made for people to dance where most artists were missing the point and forgot to do slow music or worship where people get to connect with god and get healed just by listening to music. This album is meant to prophesy on the listeners and followers whom I would not be able to touch,” he said.

Matheke first produced an album in 2001 titled, Khona Manje which came second after a tough challenge from Pempheretlhe for the national music awards.

Inevitably in 2001, he won the best gospel artist award at the Botswana Musician Association now Botswana Musicians Union (BOMU) awards.

He said after going through all the challenges of life, where he almost gave up on God and was not aware that God was calling him to full time ministry, he is back full time.

The album is meant to show God’s revelation why He called him to the ministry and hence a reason to release an album named All is well – Tsotlhe di lokile”.

The vice chairperson of Botswana Musicians Union, Letsweletse “Shabisto”Moshabi, said the production was good as he was satisfied with the mastering which was well done.

He said as the Union they were mainly concerned about branding and artistes maintaining the image of Christ as reflected by Matheke.

The album received much appreciation and complements from the newly formed Association of Gospel musicians and Radio Botswana presenter Lesego Mohutsiwa, who were impressed by the development and creativity on the album, which will be launched on May 30, 2015.
