THE STAR IS BORN / EARLY YEARS

South Africa’s new singing sensation Mmatema Moremi is yet another gem raising Zebediela’s flag the highest. Born in Moletlane Village 23 years ago, the eligible bachelorette honed her singing skills at Matshumo Primary School choir, local church, weddings and birthday celebrations.

Mmatema studied for 3 years at Matladi High School before completing her matric at Derek Kobe High School. Gospel music legends such as Benjamin Dube and Israel Mosehla have inspired her so much that no matter how many times she was turned down from one audition to the other, she always found the strengths to go on. This is the 3rd time that she has entered Idols.

LIFE BEFORE IDOLS

Mmatema first completed her honours degree in Linguistics from Tshwane University of Technology 2013. Prior to entering the 2015 Idols, is / was a music tutor at Conquerors Through Christ Ministry.

IT WAS MEANT TO BE / BOUND TO HAPPEN

Last year Mmatema travelled and performed at the Fringe Festival in Scotland as part of Tshwane Gospel Choir. In three occasion (2011, 2012 and 2013) she won first prize in a music competition hosted by University of South Africa.

IN IT TO "WIN IT"

There are 16 remaining contestants; the voting session for males opens tomorrow whilst for the female the voting session kick off on the 6th September 2015. It is numbers game; the voting public determine the winner. For Mmatema she “will leave everything in the hands of God”. It takes more than just ridiculous talent to win the Idols, so ZEBEDIELA STAND UP & VOTE IN NUMBERS.

LIFE BEYOND IDOLS

Mmatema is not only a talented songbird but is also a multi- talented phenomenon who is also a musician, MC, speaker, performer and music educator. Brand Mmatema will be polished and taken to a whole new level. Are we are going to see Mmatema during the 5th Zebediela gae ga Mahlako Career Exhibition? The answer is a big YES.
