Speaking to TsishaLIVE, she revealed the while she is looking for a recording deal, 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."

Talking about the future Skolopad said she would like to be signed to Dr Malinga and 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."
