While Dr Malinga hasn’t signed Skolopad just yet, he asked her to come on stage to perform with him over the weekend.
Skolopad revealed to TshisaLIVE that she is looking for a recording deal and she hasn’t been offered one yet.
“No. I’m not signed yet but Dr Malinga has been putting me on. When I talked to Malinga he suggested that I come do a weekend of performances with him, you know like a protégé would shadow a mentor. I thought it was a great idea since I am off work for now so I drove to Joburg and met up with him and the Lingas crew for a weekend of fun.”

Qwabe, who has always hoped to work with Dr Malinga, said she will do whatever is necessary to make her career aspirations a reality.
“I’ve always hoped that Dr Malinga would eventually sign me and when he said ‘Not at the moment’ the first time around, I understood that he needed me to prove how much I want this and how much passion I have for music and performance. So when called me up to tag along to his performances I took my time to show him what I am made off.”
