Candice T dances to kids’ tune…

Pretoria News - - METRO - Staff Re­porter

SINGER, ac­tor, and dancer Palesa “Candice T” Mokhut­soane is putting her ex­pe­ri­ence gained in work­ing with chil­dren at the State The­atre to good use.

Candice T has teamed up with her busi­ness part­ner and man­ager Ku­tullo Mo­gakane and they are scout­ing for young ta­lent and giv­ing chil­dren a plat­form to show what they can do in mu­sic, act­ing and danc­ing.

“We started in Fe­bru­ary by or­gan­is­ing a dance com­pe­ti­tion at Mmakau Com­mu­nity Hall. We in­vited many dance crews to par­tic­i­pate in that com­pe­ti­tion,” she said. “We dis­cov­ered seven dancers who go by the name Skinny Dancers. They are work­ing with me on gigs and live per­for­mances.”

Candice T said that next week she would be start­ing a cam­paign for the 16 Days of Ac­tivism for No Vi­o­lence Against Women and Chil­dren through her Afro soul song Im­bokodo, which is about the abuse of women and chil­dren.

The house and afro pop mu­sic star said her love for mu­sic started when she was in­tro­duced to chil­dren’s the­atre, ed­u­ca­tional the­atre and act­ing while still study­ing.

In June last year, she es­tab­lished Can­di­fam En­ter­tain­ment and has per­formed at the Tsh­wane Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy fresh­ers ball and Valen­tine’s Day events and at sev­eral other venues across Pre­to­ria.

She re­leased her first sin­gle track ti­tled Moleko which has been re­ceived well by mu­sic fans in the city.

Candice T is also work­ing on her de­but al­bum – and ex­pects her fes­tive sea­son sin­gle Ashidiwe to be be among the hit songs over this fes­tive sea­son.

APART from nur­tur­ing her own mu­sic and act­ing ca­reer, Palesa Mokhut­soane, known as ‘Candice T’, has a pas­sion for un­earthing raw ta­lent.
