Pabi Cooper Celebrates ‘Banyana Ke Bafana’ Major Milestone Under Her Own Record Label
Pabi Cooper Celebrates ‘Banyana Ke Bafana’ Major Milestone Under Her Own Record Label. Born Paballo Mothapo, Cooper started out as a dancer who performed at small-scale concerts. Despite being noted as an entertaining dancer, the multi-talented musician believed there was more to her as a performer than just dancing. That’s when she shunned her imposter syndrome and embarked on a singing career that saw her collaborate with amapiano stars such as Focalistic and Ch’cco.
Cooper has been hard at work since her big break. She owns her own label Cooper Entertainment and recently released her hit song Banyana Ke Bafana which features fellow amapiano mainstays Focalistic, Ch’cco, Luudadeejay and Nobantu Vilakazi. The song has been doing incredibly well on music streaming platforms as it recently went platinum in two months.
This is a major milestone for the star considering that she recently launched her own record label a few months ago. “Hit Platinum again this time in 2 months, under MY record label & 100K subscribers on Youtube. God is gooood ! Kere Banyana ba ke bafana,” she wrote.
Just over a year ago, singer and dancer Pabi Cooper was the typical girl next door whose dreams were to become SA’s youngest soccer referee. The rising star’s passion for football was first sparked by her grandmother who taught her the ins and outs of soccer through their little television at home as a child. While soccer was what she and her grandmother used to bond over, little did Cooper know that later in her life she’d want to pursue it professionally by becoming a referee.
