I must say I missed you all friends.
Well, well today isn’t different, I’m about to dish out the best infotainment around.
Well we chat with an entertainer from Soshanguve north of Pretoria. Her name is Rey Makwela. Well I have to admit this, I worked with her on a project a while ago. Her work ethics really does set her apart from the rest thus far. Hence she has worked with seasoned list of artists like General Peter Maringa famously known for the hit single ‘Jakalas’. William Faxa Dube (producer behind the likes of Matlakala, Winnie Mashaba, Oleseng and many more), St Maluleka (gospel artist), Trigga 3nity (hip-hop) to name a few. She’s a singer/songwriter/poet/rapper overall entertainer by right!
Rey is no stranger to gracing prime time TV shows, like Shift on SABC1 to mention a few. As well as major print publications within Pretoria. Being influenced by different genres of music like gospel & Xitsonga traditional music. Surely she can bring anything within the studio to life.
Stay with me to find out about her latest project.
Q. Welcome to Tsa Pitori Online Magazine thanks for inviting us to chat with you. So tell us about your latest project that’s happening this Saturday?
A. This Saturday I’m shooting my first music video for my house single ‘Love’ and I will be performing it live as a treat later in the evening.
Q. What can people expect from the final product?
A. People can expect a fresh new tribal house sound with fresh vocals as a relaxing too or dance to track
Q. Why did you choose to shoot a music video for that particular song ‘Love’? And who did you work with on the track?
A.”Love ” isn’t like any other typical deep house track it has a dance element hence the choice to shoot a music video and I worked with a local young DJ called Papi aka DJ Error on the instrumentals, otherwise the entire production of the song from lyrics to arrangement I did it myself.
Q. You’re an artist who’s exposed to many venues, why choose 9zero as your venue to shoot the video? And where is it situated?
A. 9zero was found accidentally actually *lol*, I was wondering about with my crew shortly after the initial venue I was meant to use about a month ago gave us hassles. Someone mentioned 9zero & when I walked in the venue I fell in love with the atmosphere. I never go to local pubs but 9zero met my expectations of a chilled place in a local designated area. 9zero Pub & Grill is situated at Soshanguve Ext3.
Q. I hear there’s an after party scheduled? Tell us more about that, from the line up to the logistics of the event?
A. The after party will be celebrated in a chilled manner with myself as the guest artist, P_Sleash & Mosankie on the mic, including an array of DJs.
Q. Your biggest achievement thus far within the industry?
A. Some of my biggest achievements in the industry were touring with Arthur Mafokate (999), around Pretoria rendering performances & motivational talks at Pretoria schools. Being constantly asked to be part of SABC 1’s shows such as Shift and Zoned. Appearing for close to 2years on Tshwane-Tv and working with an internationally acclaimed pop legend General Peter Maringa. Writing for gospel artists as well as being recommended by the legendary gospel master producer William Faxa Dube himself to name a few, also being called back & being ranked high on demand for weeks on John Molepo’s show on Campus radio TUTFM was also a highlight.
Q. What’s your view on the perception that Pretoria is focused mainly on the party scene? And
what can we do more to move away from that perception?
A. The perception about Pretoria is partially true and this is due to the fact that people come from across S.A to study in Pretoria and are then exposed to a lively lifestyle of no sleep, independence & good times.How it can be changed relies solemnly on empowerment
Q. Your dream collabo?
A. My dream collabo has to be with Kabomo I just love the man’s art. Moneoa also takes the cup the two make great music
Q. What’s next for Rey?
A. What’s next for Rey is conquering the industry & leaving a mark. I’m releasing my single and will be heard featuring on some well known DJs single’s and the rest will be witnessed shortly after the video shoot.
Q. Your bookings info?

With that said, I would love to wish Rey nothing but the best with her craft.
From being an events coordinator to shooting her music video, indeed hard work pays.
It’s not always a smooth ride but because you have set goals for yourself, one has got to hold on till all is given to you. Everyone is invited to go witness the “Love” music video show.
Hope you’re all loving my work thus far under #kasivibes.
Love, peace and blessings to you all.
From me the dese gay entertainer.
