Tlome said that Adillah as a group did not give her the platform to do the kind of music she always wanted. “Adillah was a pop group and we had to do songs and subjects which were chosen for us” she said.
The 32 year old studied music and drama at the National School of the Arts. Her genre is Afro-Soul she focuses on subject matters such love and life experiences because she feels they relate with her.
Born in Soshanguve Letang is adamant that going solo will be a journey to higher places. “My dream has always been a super star like my favourite artists, the likes of Swazi Dlamini and Judith Sephuma”, she exclaimed.
