Tresor & Dr Langa Mngoma are an item and they met through Nandi!
Tresor continues to raise the bar where music is concerned and his recent win at the Samas also cemented his name as one of the best.
However, it was the beautiful Dr Langa Mngoma who accompanied Tresor to the awards that took all the spotlight. Tresor has confirmed to TshisaLIVE that he and Langa have been dating for a while now.
You graced the Samas red carpet with Langa Madida, raising some questions from fans. Are you two dating?
*Lol* Well I'm not normally one to disclose my personal information, however, yes I am dating Langa Mngoma. Yeah, we've been dating for about a year and we met through the sister (Nandi). It's been really incredible and we are really great friends.
Tresor also took the opportunity to address the snide comments made on social media about him winning the Best Pop Album award at the Samas.
How did it feel to take the award home?
The feeling was really overwhelming, it was very humbling. I am very honoured and excited. It was an incredible night for me and winning was really a great bonus.
Are you aware of the snide comments made about you winning even though you are from another country?
Yes, I am aware of these comments being made about me. However, just to inform everyone I actually have a green ID and I've been here for over 10 years and my music career started here. I think it's really just ignorant comments. So, all in love, I believe everything I have done as an artist has come through hard work and perseverance. So if I may, it's truly deserved because of the amount of investment in our craft that we've put in. I'm sending love to everyone that has made the comments. The focus is to take African music to the next level. There's nothing that can stop us, stronger, better and faster.
What does it mean to you?
Taking the award means a lot and it's a great indication that I am on the right path with the music. The aim has always been to revive the glory days of African pop music and I think we are close to being able to take the new age or new sound of African pop music to a new level.
Sophomore albums don't often do as great as debut albums, why do you think yours has done so well?
It's because of focus and staying true. It's about living without fear, even when you are making music. It goes back to how much time is put into the music without any fear. When I created my album I was influenced by people like Brenda Fassie, Chicco Twala and Hugh Masekela - who was also a great friend and mentor to me. So I am following the path of the greats. And the next chapter is exciting.
