Recently, the star shared with ZiMoja, that he got himself a job at a cruise ship to make ends meet after his music career took a wrong turn. Molomo said:

"Opportunities are limited in South Africa and if one sees an open door anywhere, they need to grab it with both hands because it may not come again. For as long they renew my contract, I will be here, but home is where I will be time to time to visit."

A source also told the publication that Thapelo left South Africa last year in October after trying other ways to maintain his family:

"He will be returning now in March for a few weeks and he has already been promised a new contract by his employer that is how impressive he has been. He is doing both what he loves and gets to travel too."
