Starting a career in music is not an easy feat and the journey has been long for singer Ramelo. The singer recently sat down with Briefly.co.za to talk about her path in music and how the industry can recover from the effects of Covid-19.
South African singer and performer Ramela has made a name of herself as a force to be reckoned with in the industry and it's only upwards from here. She has a soulful voice and she's ready to take her career to even greater heights.
Briefly.co.za spoke to Ramola in an exclusive interview about her journey in music and how she plans to address the challenges that Covid-19 has posed to the entertainment industry.
Ramelo, born Lebo Ramasimong, made her claim to fame after she was on The Voice South Africa in 2019. She was one of the Top 12 finalists in the singing competition. Ramelo has been writing songs for the last 14 years. She recently released her single, Heyiwena.
"Being a contestant on 'The Voice' definitely opened my eyes to the very business side of the music world. I was lucky enough to be working with people who've been able to help me navigate that world even now," says Ramelo.
The Covid-19 pandemic has gravely affected the music industry and Ramelo has also been a victim of this. However, she believes that the industry was in trouble long before Covid arrived. When asked what the way forward is, Ramelo said that artists should be leaders.
"The way forward is for artists to be leaders of the arts," she said.
Ramelo is inspired by everything that takes place around her. She believes that there is no better way but to draw inspiration from the truth of your own life experience.
The beautiful singer realised that she wanted to become an artist in 2005. She participated in the third season of Idols SA and went as far as the top eight. This is what gave her the confidence to pursue music seriously.
