Candice T dances to kids’ tune…
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.
