"As someone who values motivational music, the message conveyed by lyrics is very important to me. Listening to uplifting music motivates me to keep going when I'm in the gym," said Thapelo.
The versatile player also shared that his workout music selection is primarily dependent on his mood. "When I'm happy, I listen to energising music from my favourite music genre – Kwaito. I listen to the likes of the iconic Trompies, Brown Dash, and Spikiri, among other Kwaito legends. When I'm feeling under the weather, I prefer soulful music from the Barorisi Ba Morena Gospel Choir. Their music grounds me spiritually and reminds me of my late parents," expressed Morena.
