Motswafere continues to mesmerize at ‘My Star’ competition

My Star competition continues to attract hordes of music lovers with Motswafere still edging out many contenders, leaving the audience rooted to their seats with admiration as DJ Sid fought back tears of emotion.

Belting out a sensual slow rock’n’roll song, Motswafere last Friday stayed away from her usual traditional moves on the stage, preferring to hit her song of choice hard, leaving the audience spellbound and judges divided.

“I thought you will make a few moves on stage…but you did not,” Master Dee took a swipe at Motswafere, saying the performance was not that inspiring.

Trying to fight back the tears during the song, DJ Sid, however, took a different route, praising Motswafere for an excellent performance.

“Forget about Master Dee, that was marvelous ….marvelous performance. You inspire the competition and you bring about emotions,” intimated the no-nonsense DJ Sid, who could be seen fighting tears and grimacing as he rubbed his face.

His sentiments were also augmented by judge Kgomotso Tshwenyego who saw nothing wrong with the performance, urging Motswafere to keep the spirit.

For consecutive weeks since the competition started at the beginning of the year, Motswafere has been a force to reckon with, few contenders come close to her.

Clad in rock star gear won by famous personalities, singing and holding and ‘playing’ a guitar, Ayanda earlier was expected to give Motswafere stiff competition. Singing Shania Twain’s ‘Don’t Be Stupid’, Ayanda was a marvel to watch and the judges piled accolades on her performance.

But that was not good enough to dislodge Motswafere who closed the competition with a breath-taking performance, that prompted some in the audience to forecast that she will win the coveted prize.
A female dominated session this time around, My Star performance last week saw a series of contenders making some good efforts.

They included Prince, Peach and Ikageng.
