For Refentse Morake, it is not difficult creating Afrikaans music because he claims to think and dream in the language. Refentse feels that Afrikaans is a descriptive language and one of the easiest for him to write in.
In 2015, Refentse Morake started his musical journey. It was kickstarted with videos of him singing that were shared on social media.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the videos showed Refentse singing Lisa se Klavier and De La Rey.
Since then, Refentse has been impressing the Afrikaans music industry and gaining a loyal fanbase.
The Afrikaans singer says it's easy for him to compose music in Afrikaans because his thoughts and dreams are in Afrikaans.
"I feel like Afrikaans is a very explosive and descriptive language so it is one of the easiest languages for me to write in.
"I think and dream in Afrikaans which means I feel in Afrikaans, and that means I can easily project my feelings in Afrikaans."
Refentse has worked with a number of popular Afrikaans musicians, such as Karen Zoid, Bok van Blerk, Ricus Nel and Adam Tas.
The musician aims to work with even more musicians in the future, as reported by eNCA.
"I would very much like to work with Ladysmith Black Mambazo and a lot of other interesting sounds like Sibongile Kumalo with the Afro Jazz influences."
Refentse is making his mark as an Afrikaans muso and was nominated for a SAMA for Beste Kontemporêre Musiek Album in 2016.
