MASERU – Upcoming artiste, Tebalo Sechele, has his eyes set on being one of the biggest artistes in the country – despite juggling both videography and movie editing. The 24-year-old artiste, known as TeeGlory to his hordes of fans, is originally from Ha Maphohloane in the Mohale’s Hoek district but is currently based in Moshoeshoe II in Maseru. Tebalo began his schooling at Naleli Primary School before proceeding to Likuena High School.
He is currently a Film Production Student at the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT) in his second year. He started his music career in 2015, and dropped his first EP in 2019 – releasing five singles, ‘An Intro’, ‘Recce’, ‘Rescue’, ‘Whole Night’ and ‘Psycho’. “I performed at shows such as the Mafeteng’s Umswenko. I once performed in Quthing in 2017 and have been performing at Mohale’s Hoek since the beginning of my music career. I have shared the stage with the likes of Chumani from Scandal and Ba2Cada after dropping the EP.
“I have about six upcoming singles and I am currently working on the tape titled ‘Black Letter’, featuring the likes of Lu Srenk, Thorii and other artistes,” he said to Life&Style. Tebalo continues that he fell in love with hip hop because it has proved to be a medium through which he can share his feelings and thoughts with the world. “I am not the type person who speaks his peace or who says his problems so I prefer saying all I want to say in the songs, also for people who are going through the same thing to heal and get consolation from my songs, for them to understand they are not alone,” he said.
My favourite single is ‘Ride’, which is an appreciation song for all the people who always got my back, for the people I always got love from,” Tebalo continued. Locally he says he looks up to Thorii, “I look up to people who make international moves and are also focused. He is focused and low-key making moves. “And I would one day wish to share the stage with Cassper Nyovest, because I see myself as one of the big artist, videographer and movie editor in the country,” he said.
