Bosslady switching industries

Owner of Olive Entertainment Julia 'Bosslady' Kadhikwa speaks about her latest plans to get the Namibian film industry on a higher level.

She is by far one of those Namibians who has been able to mingle with international stars, host A-list parties and manage some of Namibia's finest artists. Speaking to tjil, Julia 'Bosslady' Kadhikwa says she has networked enough and it's high time she made her net worth from all her connections.

“I have reached the point where I have proven the worth of my work and managing artists alone won't be able to match my nickname Bosslady which I got from Lady May Africa.

Bosslady has turned her focus to the production world and she will start off by working with the best, both locally and internationally. Bosslady says she has met different people from different spheres of entertainment but didn't know how to work with them as her sole focus was on music.

This year, she had a brief exchange with an old acquaintance, Mike Ezuruonye, and decided to try out the production world. Ezuruonye is a renowned Nigerian actor, director and filmmaker.

“I have always wanted to have copyright to content and the one question asked, whether I had a production company, set me back. I want to open a production company and reach a level where I create content and sign deals with companies such as MultiChoice,” she said.

Ezuruonye will be landing in Namibia this weekend where they will work on scouting sites for a project with Bosslady. Bosslady says she wants to help uplift the film industry as Namibian musicians are on a pedestal.

“I have had actors who have wanted me to promote them but I could hardly do it. So this time I can help both the music and film industry. We need support from other people from other countries because we are too small a population to get ourselves there. This is where Ezuruonye and everyone else I will work with going forward will help, and I am so excited,” she said.
