Celebrating longevity

29 November 2019 | Art and Entertainment

061 Music will host a party at Boxx café on Saturday, in celebration of 10 years in the music business.

Founded a decade ago, 061 Music has released eight albums, received nine Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) nominations and won award for best hip-hop.

The group was founded by Lucci Thanks For The Beat and Catty Catt, with their first signees being Quido and Sinna-G in 2010.

The label also successfully launched the 061 clothing brand in the same year.

061 Music has been through trials and tribulations and was struck by tragic loss of Catty Catt in 2014.

Over the years the label has added artists to their roster including Ari Ang, formerly known as Arlinda, Balu Panda and Tukondjeni.

Ari Ang was signed as a vocalist at first and over the years she managed to find her sound.

Her career blossomed and she released an R&B extended play (EP) earlier this year which appeals to the millennial mind.

Earlier this week 061 Music released a music video on YouTube titled Lift Myself.

“The song talks about overcoming your personal challenges. New singles Legit and Trash Can were also released by Balu Panda and Tukondjeni, respectively. The songs are available at various online music stores,” said Sinna-G.

The label further announced that previous albums are now available on Donlu Africa.

“These albums include the classic Catty Catt's Independence Avenue, Stories by Sinna-G, Soweto Boi Certified by Quido and The Compilation, Area Code and Nothing But Beautiful Music by 061 Music,” Sinna-G added.
