Mahlatse Chokoe told Briefly News he taught himself guitar in six months

Briefly News reached out to Mahlatse Chokoe, the talented musician belting the tunes out.

The Limpopo-born musician said he moved to Gauteng to grow his social media fanbase and survives on his street performances.

"I don't have a specific location where I perform. I perform in malls and towns where there are a lot of people. I started singing in church, and during the COVID-19 lockdowns, I used my R350 grant to buy myself a guitar. I then watched YouTube videos, and it took me six months to learn how to play it. It's always appreciated when people leave money behind because I don't have any other means of income except for my music."
