ongwriter, composer, singer, and keyboardist Ezbie Moilwa has remixed legendary jazz musician Caiphus Semenya’s song titled HA LE SE LE LI KHANNA.
“I was humbled to get a message from legendary Ntate Caiphus Semenya saying I have done good with this song,” says Ezbie Moilwa.
Ezbie Moilwa says that HA LE SE LE LI KHANNA is a happy and fun wedding song that reminds us about taking care of the cows in which one’s lobola (dowry) will be paid from… a culturally fun message which both young and old Africans can resonate with.
The muso with over 25-years’ full experience in the music industry says he’s grateful to all who have positively contributed towards his career, and most importantly to God for his talent.
Ezbie Moilwa hopes that through the music he can and will inspire young and upcoming artists to realize their dreams.
Over the years, Ezbie Moilwa has written hundreds of songs and has discovered that song-writing for him is therapeutic. Whenever he goes through anything, good or bad he composes music or writes lyrics. He has proved to possess versatile musical abilities and has worked on diverse projects ranging from studio productions, musicals, soundtracks to name just a few.
Ezbie’s decision to resign from a desk job to come to Johannesburg in 1995 to pursue his music career paid off. He worked as a keyboardist for the legendary Hugh Masekela from 1998 to 2008 (10 years), travelling all over the world with the band.
In May this year, Ezbie Moilwa was fortunate enough to secure an invite to sing at the Inauguration of President Cyril Ramaphosa which was held at Loftusveld Stadium in Pretoria.
During the presidential inauguration, he was specifically requested to sing HA LE SE LE LI KHANNA written by Caiphus Semenya, made big by the late legendary Hugh Masekela, that is where the interest of remixing the song came from.
Ezbie Moilwa says having worked and connected with Hugh Masekela and Caiphus Semenya it felt right for Ezbie to reconnect the young and old with this track.
