Use Me: Tshepo Lesole charms fans

His touching, soulful music resonates and arouse emotions

The single ‘Use Me’, is reminiscent of some aspects of emotional ballads with a fuse of acappella sounds with a huge emotional spell that resonate well with his golden voice – without doubt, Tshepo T-Les Lesole remains a master of his game.

Lesole ‘s vast experience as a music producer of repute is underpinned by this masterpiece single which was released last week on his birthday. It is a very creative song, much more composed that the template songs that most gospel singers cut and paste on their albums.

The song has a classical tweak that displays a more identical sound of legendary American R&B star R. Kelly or with vocal group Boyz II Men. It is based on the Bible scripture, “And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, whom shall I send and who will go for us? Then I said here I am, send me,” from Isaiah 6:8.

The single was received with great enthusiasm by his fans. Since its release, the single has been the talk of town. It made headlines locally but surely it does deserve that iconic accomplishment. T- Les was quoted on social media saying, “This song does something to my inner man every time I think of it. It's more than just a song… it's my PRAYER… my plea to God. I hope and pray that it ministers to everyone who hears it”.

Tshepo is Botswana’s multi award winning Contemporary Gospel Musician, Songwriter as well as a reputable Music Producer. His album ‘I Believe’ with hit singles Nkabo Ke Le Kae and Moya Wame still enjoy much airplay since its official release in 2012 and remains most loved by fans.

Having scooped a total of five Botswana Music Union (BOMU) awards between 2009 and 2013 he proved to be one of the country’s finest musicians of all time and a master of his craft. He was recognised for Best Male Artist (2009), Best Contemporary Gospel Artist (2012), Best Packaged Album (2012), Best Music Producer (2012) and Best Music Producer (2013).

His music speaks for itself when it comes to quality standards. He makes music that appeal to the young, the old and good music lovers from all walks of life. The new radio single ‪‎”Use Me‬” is now officially out and available on iTunes, Amazon and most online digital music stores.

Creatives taking over 2023

26th September 2023

Creativity is seen everywhere and these individuals did something recently that’s never been done before, and some are still killing it. We see creativity on streaming platforms, stages, runways, social media and boardrooms even. Some of them are revamping their businesses, and lately, clothing sale is thriving.

They love concept-driven designs, storytelling and they bring fresh ideas and new perspectives that will leave footprints in the sand. Post the COVID-19 pandemic, these creative minds utilized the drawing board and they became cognizant that monetizing content will actually take them far, which is frank nonetheless.

This is commendable though, but the creative industry will still need support from government in order for it to flourish further. Allocation of resources (funds, facilities and empowerment) should be done consistently, creativity must be raised and at the end of the day, the economy benefits from that kind of investment.
