It's not rare that at the first sign of trouble, a group's foundation begins to crumble, because of the change. Well there's one super duo that has managed to move through it all and keep the bond as tight as ever since 2014. We are talking about BnT Music.
With their current hot single called Adrenaline, there is no denying their consistency, and this is why tjil had a chat with them.
tjil (t): Before we get to the music; how is BnT Music doing?
BnT Music (BM): We are doing great, we have a healthy relationship within our camp and management. Barney recently became a father in the middle of this year to a beautiful, strong, healthy daughter.
t: You recently dropped a single with Chubby Beats, how has the response been like so far?
BM: Adrenaline is massive. Phones are buzzing. The song has a unique summer sound. It's catchy and has a lot to say about ladies, good times and good friendly people. It also has a lot to say about being judgemental towards a lady that isn't in the limelight, forgetting that it just takes money, the right outfits and likes on her Instagram to contest. The message in the song is no one is ugly, we are just broke. We are happy with how the fans have received this song.
t: Can we expect a body of work from you soon? If yes, please give us all the details
BM: Yes, we are working on some new music. On top of that, we are also working on more visuals lately. We have an in-house photographer who makes sure you don't miss anything. So with that said, expect a lot from us.
t: How do you describe your sound?
BM: Our sound is out of this country, something familiar but with different fuses on a song. We do Afropop, dancehall, kwaito, house and Qom. We are versatile; we give you a 'lekker' music cocktail. We enjoy fusing different kinds of music genres.
t: You have been around since 2014, what has been the highlight of your journey so far?
BM: It has been a remarkable journey, with highs and lows. We have had our differences. There was a time we had given up on the group, but reconciled. But on the highlights, we were nominated at the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) in the Best Kwaito category.
