Kopo Mabotseng is a musically gifted hip hop/ motswako singer, song writer and rapper who hails from Ramotswa. He is better known as K.O.P.O which is derived from his birth name to the masses. He has worked under Ramcoloco and Rappaholic to mention a few and he is currently signed under FarmBoys Music. His Latest Offering is a single called Pressure, which basically talks about life challenges which he encountered in the music industry as an upcoming artist. K.O.P.O noted that, ‘’It also talks about overcoming the pressure from naysayers while I am trying to accomplish my dream.”
It is a Hip Hop /Motswako song and was produced by Katlego Mafhoko and engineered by the gifted Tribal Tiido. K.O.P.O says “I choose to work with these two talented producers because that is what I have been looking for all along.” The song was released recently just in time for the Easter Holidays to market himself and he believes it will open doors for him both locally and internationally. The response to the single has been positive on social media as it has got satisfying reviews. His album is anticipated to drop sometimes in 2019.
The song speaks to naysayers about all the life challenges and expectations and informs them about a better plan about the future of his music career. The song voices out K.O.P.O’s concerns regarding the pressure upcoming artists get from the community and entertainment industry. “Sometimes people put weight on you to work according to their plans dismissing the fact that you have your own plan,” he says. ‘Oska tlo nfasa pressure’, means people should not put him under pressure while he is doing his thing, while ‘success Kingdom coming soon’, explains his determination towards achieving his goals. The line ‘Blesser blesser, baheitane ba batla go bona ke tshelela tshotlego, means ‘’God bless me, since my haters want to see me suffering’…keep on showering them, bless me and open closed doors”, K.O.P.O.
