Powerhouse Anne Hambuda has been recording some beautifully soft verses that will help express her deepest thoughts, desires and fears.

In an exclusive interview with tjil, she revealed that the poetry EP, titled Warm in the Dark, will be dropping before the end of the year, and will be available online for free.



She’s worked with Sappy Jowdy and Jeiyo on a few recordings, and said she’s having so much fun.

On the subject matter she’s exploring on the EP, Hambuda said she’s inspired by everyday life.

“But mostly, I like talking about sex and love and all the crazy shades they come in. I’m informed by my own personal experiences, but also by what I’ve seen happen to other people and things I feel will happen if I’m not careful.”

First true love

Poetry being an important element of hip-hop, the culture this edition is celebrating, tjil asked Hambuda when she fell in love with the art form.

To this, she said she’s always been a writer.

“I can’t remember not writing poetry. Before I even wanted to be an author or journalist, I was writing little poems about how things made me feel and it was always therapy. It’ll always be my first true love,” she said.

Her message to the Namibian hip-hop community is for those involved to never stop writing, and trying to be better than you previously were.

“Read as much as you can. Love one another and please respect women. Rap, poetry, beatboxing, breakdancing and all of that is part of a beautiful and rich culture that should do as much good for the world as it can,” Hambuda said.

Honoured

Having put in so much work into her presenting endeavours, Hambuda is one of the nominees in this year’s Simply You Magazine Lifestyle and Fashion Awards, a nod she said she is absolutely honoured by.

“There are so many talented media personalities that could have been chosen and they recognised my work. “It’s so exciting as well because I run an Instagram TV [IGTV] show and to be nominated for that proves to me that we should just keep working and creating and our blessings will come for us.”
