Thabiso found himself in music

Thabiso ‘TM’ Mofolo started writing rhymes at the tender age of 10. With the experience he has accumulated over the years, TM is ready to take the music industry by storm.

The 18-year-old’s love for rapping started when listening to Lupe Fiasco. TM had hopes that one day he will be recording his music and thousands will be able to hear it. At the age of 12, TM recorded his fist song ‘Lost ones’. At that time his friend used to make beats and he would rap.

“There and then I realised I wanted to do music forever,” said TM.

In 2014, TM released a mix tape with 12 songs titled ‘Nacer’. After the mix tape he took a tiny break and came back in the industry with the song ‘Swerve’ which got intense airplay. Shortly after the success of ‘Swerve’ the 18-year-old took another break and in 2016 he came back to the music scene where he had performances all over the city.

This year TM released an EP which has eight tracks titled ‘Autumn 13’ the project is currently available on Sound Cloud.

“My EP has a combination of all sounds from Hip Hop, RnB and House tunes. I really cannot box myself in to a certain genre,” explained TM.

Not only does he write but he produces his own music and produces for other artists as well.
Besides his music career, TM is a matric learner at HTS.

“I am able to balance my school work and music. This is how I make sure I get good grades on weekdays I am at school then on weekends I do everything music related,” said TM.

TM says his parents have accepted his immense love for music provided that he keeps his school work in check.

Education is important to him and his parents hence he plans on obtaining a tertiary qualification after matric.

“I will be studying and doing music like I have been doing all these years. Having an educational background is vital to me because I will have something solid to fall back on,” expressed TM.

At this moment he is working on features, performances, helping out up and coming artists and most importantly his school work.

His in-depth rhymes are derived from the artists he looks up to, being AKA and Nasty C.

“Hopefully by the end of the year I would have shot a music video for one of my songs in the EP. Music is a mood changer, I found myself in music,” TM wrapped up.
