Tshedi Mholo recently took to her social media to release an official statement as she announces her official exit from Malaika.
The star has been working so hard in the industry as she plans to reinvent herself outside being part of Afro-pop music group Malaika, and is ready to officially bow as a singer.
In an official statement shared on her social pages, Tshedi made it known that she will no longer do public performances saying there was no animosity involved in her exit but rather to give her room to start a new chapter in her career and grow.
“Being in the band took a toll on me on so many levels and I have reached a stage where I cannot carry the burden any further. I have constantly found myself under the pressure of being the only girl in the band and having to live up t0 certain expectations.
“Even after flying solo in 2013, it has been somewhat difficult to cut through the clutter without the shadow of the Malaika cloud following me every step of the way. It has been to my benefit in some instances and my downfall in some,” read part of the statement.
Malaika, best known for hit song Destiny, consisted of Tshedi, Bongani Nchang and the late Jabulani Ndaba.
Tshedi also stated that being part of Malaikahas taught her over the years that life is too short to not chase any dream a person might have.
“If there is one thing being part of Malaika has taught me over the years it is that life is too short to not chase any dream a person might have. That said, I hope my decision would serve as an inspiration to anyone out there who might not be scared to chase their goals individually and independently”.
