A highly creative composer and singer, Brenda as she is affectionately known in the music circles in Gaborone and Botswana grew up in Tlokweng and singing has been an integral part of her life from her childhood. A strikingly positive and loving person, Brenda sings in Setswana , English, Zulu, Xhosa, Swahili and Nyanga. He music can be described and defined as a fusion of afro-soul and soul-jazz notes.

Brenda‘s music career took off and blossomed in 1989 when she won the Star Makers Talent Contest at the Cameo Night Club. This prize catapulted her into a household name in the music fraternity of Gaborone as she won herself a 6 months contract with Gaborone Sun Hotel playing in their classy and exclusive Giovanis Restaurant and the poolside deck on Sundays with support of the Coppertone Band from Cape Town, South Africa. In 1990, she collaborated with the Broadways Band from Zambia at the Cameo Night Club for 4 months. She then quickly moved to play at the prestigious Sheraton Hotel at the Grand Palm. In 1992, she was invited to South Africa and played alongside Linda Mpale and his Band at the Blue Fountain Jazz Club and several high end establishments in Johannesburg South Africa.

Armed with this experience from South Africa, she came back to Botswana and announced her supremacy as an accomplished jazz musician of note. She partnered with the Clear Vision band touring all over Botswana to signal and showcase her vocal prowess. This landed her a lucrative contract with the Cresta President hotel in 1994 as their resident entertainer. Due to her overwhelming mass appeal, in 1995, Brenda joined forces with the popular Unity Band where she displayed her musical ingenuity performing for corporate and private functions. In keeping with this exceptional vocal delivery, she was invited to be part of the Motseleng Black Label Tour sponsored by Lovers Plus which toured all four corners of this country and was a huge runaway success. With her reputation as the “most sought after leading lady in music” in Botswana , she was contracted by the Riley Hotel in Maun and the Mowana Lodge in Kasane as a resident entertainer. In 2002, she was offered an exciting role of Public Relations and Marketing Manager for Maun Lodge in addition to an entertainer`s contract with the Lodge.

By 2004 Brenda had crafted a profile and reputation that equaled many regional and international notable Jazz and Afro Jazz musicians like Judith Sephuma, Gloria Bosman to name a few. In recognition of her versatility, professional etiquette and mass appeal among jazz lovers in the country, she was invited to play alongside the veteran jazz maestro Jimmy Dludlu at Stanbic Jazz Festival in 2004 making her a household jazz singer of note in the country.

With this critical fame, her passion for jazz and her lyrical abilities, the Botswana National Sports Council (BNSC) and Barloworld invited her as their main act for the 6th Annual sports awards in 2005. In 2010 she started recording her first ever cd simply titled ‘Kajalo’ which she finished in 2013.

She has mentored Shanti-Lo , Punah to mention a few.
