Soweto-born, Lerato Sellane best known as Elo Zar has just released a new single ‘Bophelo’ which features Kommanda Obbs – an emotionally gripping seSotho tune.
Elo Zar has been hard at work on new material, offering her fans a taste of what she’s been cooking up in the studio. The songstress worked with the gifted Cristof Snayman to bring ‘Bophelo’ to life but its inspirations were borne out of everyday struggles.
While her soothing vocals lace the track with trademark technique and melody, her sharp-tongued collaborator Kommanda Obbs brings an edgy contrast with a hard-hitting verse. The Lesotho-born rapper has made a name for himself by infusing rap with traditional elements and all of those characteristics were on display when he turned up to record his verses for this jam.
