TimesLIVE reports that the feature called Sho a 'force to be reckoned with in the African culture' and that's a pretty accurate description.

She told them that being Tsonga is not seen as being 'cool' and she wants to change that.

Briefly.co.za gathers that she also reflected on her music and how it was kind-of daring of her to sing about the things she did.

"My early songs and poems were about asserting my independence as a young black woman in South Africa, and being rebellious.
"It was big for a woman to be talking about boys, about alcohol, about partying because Tsonga culture tends to be a little bit conservative."

As if making this year's Forbes Africa 30 under 30 list wasn't already enough for Sho, this feature will definitely help her reach an even wider audience.
