The year 2020 was tough on most people, but Focalistic is one of those who came out unscathed.
Artist Lethabo “Focalistic” Sebetso, born and bred in Ga-Rankuwa cannot deny he had an impressive year.
Twitter was buzzing after his recent winnings. He shared how he once disappointed his mom when he lost his political science degree certificate which she wanted to frame and put up on the wall like most proud parents do.
However, after his single “Ke Star” had been certified gold, his mom had an even bigger achievement to put up on her wall.
Focalistic honoured his mom by giving her his first plague; and continued expressing his gratitute to his supporters, the star said: “I’m so glad everyone liked the music even though it’s a tough time with the coronavirus. I’m so grateful. Here’s to going Platinum and Diamond!”
“Foca” in short, left the country for the first time when he flew to Nigeria, Lagos to represent South Africa the best way he knows how after his hit single “Ke Star” blew the Amapiano music genre by storm.
Few months later, when he thought he was celebrating his big break or rather his recent huge achievement, he won SABC song of the year.
He has collaborated with the likes of Cassper Nyovest, Moonchild Sanelly, Vigro Deep, ect. And with that being his proud moments, his most proud moment was seeing his mom’s tears of joy after learning of all his winnings.
“We’re valuing ourselves more, the rest of Africa involved by saying things in our own languages instead of other people’s languages.” Foca explained.
Foca added that as much as it may sound crazy, he wants a Grammy just like any one of the greats before him wanted.
