Talented Namibian singer Florito is back with a brand-new single titled ‘Stamina’. With the music video set to drop today on YouTube, tjil caught up with Florito telephonically from Nigeria to unpack the makings of this offering.

On how the song came about, the musician shared that the collaboration with BNXN – formerly known as Buju - has been something they’ve been talking about for the past three years.

“I’ve known BNXN since 2016 before he became a mainstream artist, so we decided to do something this year.

“My new management team got hold of his team and they made everything happen - thanks to CLÉ Entertainment.”

Florito added that working with BNXN was a beautiful experience, and that he is a very humble human being.

“I had a great time working on this project with him. The best part was the video shoot - that shoot made us bond more. The feelings were mutual, his team treated me like I was one of them and made sure I was sorted. Great experience.”

Mastering the craft

Having spent time in Nigeria, the biggest music market in Africa, tjil asked Florito what he has gained from that environment. In response, he said he has learnt the art of mastering your craft.

He pointed out that the way Nigerian artists record and create melodies is unique. “I have also observed that consistency is key. I’ve improved a lot as an artist learning from them, it makes me more focused.

“This stay has made me work 10 times harder. Being in this environment has made me understand the importance of investing in yourself and your craft,” he said.

‘Anything is possible’

On what his goal with the single was, he answered simply: To make people dance, and to make them happy.

Most importantly, he shared, he wants this single to show African kids that anything is possible.

“I want people to know that they can achieve anything in this world.”

Summing up the conversation with tjil, Florito explained that the single will be released under Backroom and CLÉ Entertainment.

He has a deal with Backroom, one of the biggest record labels in Portugal, he said, adding that “CLÉ Entertainment and Backroom are partners”.

“CLÉ represents me in Angola and the rest of Africa. Backroom represents me internationally,” he said.
