Legendary Musician Selaelo Selota On How Young Artists Obsess Over Seeming “Cool”. Veteran singer Selaelo Selota has expressed his concern on how the young artists don’t posses the good meanings of making music and being musicians.
“I see a lot of young artists on stage and the body language immediately tells you they think they are too cool to be here or they are over the performance before they even start. They think that’s cool but it isn’t I don’t have time for that, I leave it all on the stage.
“I have this mantra that what if this is my last performance? What would I have left for people to remember me as? Would people say he was passionate, he gave it his all? Or would they say he looked tired and he looked like he didn’t love it anymore?”
Selota went on to speak of what performing means to him and how he handles being a performer to serve the crowd food for the ears.
“When I am on stage I get the opportunity to enter a place where I live through that song and I love the song to help me confront my emotions and as I go through that with the crowd witnessing it, they become vulnerable too.”
Selaelo will be at the Mangaung African Cultural Festival (Macufe) taking place between October 5 and October 14.
