Musical recording artiste Khotso has released a new single known as Eng Eng, which is all about men deserving better in relationships.
Khotso is well-known for his work on The Lion King movie soundtrack with Lebo M. His previous single, Tiisetsa, was a South African favourite, garnering generous airplay across several radio stations and TV channels.
This new release by the Sotho folk and R&B star also features a heart-tugging music video reenacted and based on true life events.
Inspiration for Khotso’s ‘Eng Eng’
Speaking about his new track, Khotso said, “I was inspired to write the single Eng Eng while going through a breakup with my ex-girlfriend many years ago.
“Writing the song helped me very much in healing from that particular situation. So the song is actually a true life situation for me.”
He explained that the song is about a man who has just found out that his girlfriend has been cheating on him, and is therefore going through a rollercoaster of emotions.
“He feels all the more stupid because he was warned about this girl by everyone close to him and ignored the warning,” the talented artiste further explains.
“She is begging for forgiveness, but he is resolute that he is moving on. He doesn’t even want to know the details of who she was with, when, why, etc. He is done. This is something men go through a lot but many times they find it hard to express their emotions about such issues.”
Reflecting on who he worked with on the track, Khotso said, “I wrote and produced the single myself, working with session musicians from Lesotho. I arranged the song with my bass player, Thabo Mlangeni.
“The song also features Leka on keyboards, Katleho ‘Turf’ Mohasoa on guitar, Tsekiso Motaung on drums and Tholoana on backing vocals.”
Regarding future plans and releases, the singer said he’s always busy writing and producing music for both himself and other artistes. Fans can therefore look forward to new projects from him soon.
