For many outside Limpopo, Tsonga rnb might not be a thing they are familiar with, but for the people in Limpopo the likes of Henny C, Cool b, Nomonde Rogers and others have made an impact that cemented Tsonga Rnb as a genre with a bright future, and one of the artists that’s determined to make sure that the future is bright as it can be, is 25 year old rapper/Singer/Songwriter & Music Producer, Lester Matthews.
Lester Matthews is a Limpopo based musician who’s been in the music scene since 2010, evolving from Rapper, to music producer, to singer and Songwriter over the years. Along with his ever changing positions in music, Lester has enjoyed frequent shifts from genre to genre.
Over the past two years, Lester has gone from releasing four well received songs and music videos, to sharing the stage with some of the biggest artists in South Africa, including Makhadzi, Benny Mayengani and Kabza the Small among others, to working on a song with one of the household names in Tsonga rnb, COOL B.
Asking about the song and its conception, Lester talked about recent events and revelations in his personal life that have motivated him to write new, personal and meaningful music, one of the results of these recent events being his newest song titled “Supermodel”.
Lester defines the song as being close to his heart, commenting on how “The listeners are in for a treat as the song is a sweet, classic tsonga rnb love song with a hint of commercial rnb. So people should definitely be on the lookout when it drops on Saturday the 18th!!
