Karabo Mogane has dropped a celebratory wedding single just in time for Spring that will surely keep you on your feet.

Titled uMakoti, the traditional folk song and a staple at weddings, has been breathed a new life with Karabo’s mind-blowing vocals and smooth delivery.

The touch of supreme maestro Mobi Dixon as the producer adds a sparkle that will make uMakoti one of the anthems as we head towards the end of the year.

‘It’s a song that have been used for celebrations over the years, it’s easy on the ear, a great sing-along that brings people together across racial and language barriers. uMakoti comes at a time when there are a lot of celebrations and it will add fuel to any party,’ Karabo shares.

To make it his own, Karabo brought in a live band, wrote his own verses, added a bridge but still maintained the sincerity, playfulness and energy of the song.

‘It sounds very good and you will enjoy it,’ he guarantees.

Hloni Modise-Matau, MD of HM Entertainments where Karabo is signed toasted the new release. ‘We are delighted with Karabo’s newest work. It’s an uplifting song that you can sing-along to and gets lost in the melody and lyrics. We are proud of what Karabo and Mobi Dixon put together.’
