As someone who regards herself as “shy”, she lets her music do the talking. She also has a YouTube channel where she puts her work out there, and gets scouted by promoters, award committees and fans online.
“I’m glad all my hard work is not in vaain and that I’m representing my country on the continent,” she said.
The young talented woman said she is grateful this year the committee can pay for her flights and accommodation. “In 2013 I had to take out a personal loan to fund my trip. It was the saddest thing, because as an artist in this country it’s difficult to get support and sponsors when it matters,” Modiselle said.
She plays commercial house, a bit of Hip-Hop and Western African highlife style.
