Katima Mulilo's Short Khila has without hesitation distanced himself from your common artist in Namibia.

For this musician, 2019 has really been a year that highlighted the quality he has constantly developed and offered for those daring to listen.

With his fifth offering Nkwiyo Nkwiyo scheduled to be launched on 29 November at Trace Lounge in Katima Mulilo, tjil got an opportunity to kick it with this determined musician.

His debut album came out in 2012 and he maintains that he is proud of the attention it received. With Nkwiyo Nkwiyo his mission is to introduce his music to new audiences, while keeping his day one fans satisfied. “I want people to listen carefully to the music and grasp the message because this is an album that carries strong messages. Other than that, I also just want to inspire people through my music,” said Short Khila.

His manager Kasale 'M-Jay' Mabuta mentioned that Short Khila has been misunderstood for a long time, so this is the album where he shows maturity and the direction he is taking with his career. “When the album finally comes out, through the music people will be able to tell what Short Khila is all about.

“He explore themes like forgiveness, for instance; on track seven he apologises to his brother and I feel like that is one song that will resonate with a lot of people out there,” said Mabuta.

Nkwiyo Nkwiyo features Dandy Crazy, Kapili Kapili, Aston Under Gee, Kwaito Lager and DJ Vuyo. Mabuta added they are inviting the music community in Katima Mulilo to come in their numbers for the launch, because they have not organised an album launch of this sort before. “We have incorporated so many elements to make this event exciting and worthwhile for all attendees.

“For instance, when you purchase the ticket, you automatically get a free photoshoot for five to 10 minutes. You can purchase the tickets at the Katima Mulilo open market room TM43,” Mabuta shared.
