Idols SA 2015 runner up Mmatema Moremi made history this past weekend by becoming the first ever Idols contestant to host a one woman show at Pretoria’s State Theatre. The show which was a huge success saw the theatre being filled up to capacity with Mmatema’s fans, friends and family.
”I am very grateful for this, I am here living my dream because of you”, an emotional Mmatema said before belting out her rendition of Celine Dion’s Because Of You as a dedication to the audience.
The singer went on to narrate how she had been chasing her dreams for a long time and finally things are shaping up. “I am currently busy working on my album, I have written a lot of songs and when I do performances I sing the songs to see how people react to them. So far it has been real good,” she told DRUM after the show.
As to how she pulled off the One Woman show, Mmatema says its all thanks to her team and sponsors. “I had a dream of doing this and then my production manager Xan and my team got to working and with our sponsors such as Doves Funeral, we made it happen.”
