He is a dream chaser!
Nkayi-born contemporary dancer Brighton Segale Mpofu, otherwise known as Mtshana Hosh, is a man on a mission who wants to carve a name for himself with his dancing feet.
With only six months after crossing to the South of Limpopo, Mtshana has managed to charm one of Mzansi’s finest “new-age” dancers Thoka Matome Mahlatse Robert famously known as Limpopo Boy.
Limpopo Boy is a frontline dancer for Venda music Queen Makhadzi Muimbi.
He featured on a number of Master KG’s performances and music visuals.
Mtshana and Limpopo Boy met at Soweto’s Protea Glen Extension 2 during Limpopo Boy’s upcoming music video shoot.
“I recently met Limpopo Boy while he was shooting his music video in Soweto near my residence. I just saw a group of people dancing, so I took interest and approached only to find out Limpopo Boy was part of the crowd.
“When it came to the time for freestyle dancing, I also took the turn and displayed some of my skills and the crowd went crazy,” said Mtshana Hosh who was also crowned as the finest Majaivana of the Bulawayo nightlife.
Limpopo Boy is eager to work with the young star.
“After the music video shoot, Limpopo Boy approached me and tipped me I have direction when it comes to dancing and he said he is willing to take me under his wing, a challenge that I am looking up to,” said Mtshana.
Mtshana, who specialises in Ama-Piano and Gqom dancing, was groomed by Spitskop dance crew in Johannesburg.
His main wish is that one day, dancing will be taken as a serious profession in Bulawayo and respected as in Mzansi.
“Jozi is far different from Bulawayo in terms of dancing because there is too much competition here (Jozi). I mean almost everyone can literally dance. Craft is taken seriously and one can survive through dancing only.
“I wish that we make Bulawayo a better place that will accommodate and afford dancers a decent living, and it can only be achieved by attracting different corporations to sponsor various dance competitions, as is the case with Mzansi,” said Mtshana.
