These are exciting times for the Botswana music scene, the quality is not even a matter of debate anymore. It’s about the moves being made, business transacted, collaborations that grow music culture, and deals being put on the table, and one that we can speak of is Thato Jessica’s announcement that she’s signed to South Africa’s Open Mic Productions – one of Mzansi’s big label with a roster that other’s envy.
Open Mic bringing her on heralds a journey of growth continued, and her single ‘Count on Me’ definitely signals work at a higher level with the single already featuring on last week’s ‘Track of the Week’. If the names housed under the label are anything to go by, then we can assume that she’ll get the same level of support that her label mates such as Mapara A Jazz, Master KG, Prince Benza, Makhadzi and many more enjoy – meaning bigger things for her.
