Rapidly transforming into a different kind of beast.

King Tee Dee, formerly known as The Dogg, is an artist who has come full circle. After many years spent dominating the music scene by creating music that has become a soundtrack to our lives, King Tee Dee is gearing up for his 28.09.19 concert at Unam Stadium.

Part of his Instagram bio reads as “the greatest from Namibia”, and to be quite frank, there are no lies detected in that statement. Excited about the 28.09.19 concert King Tee Dee, real name Martin Morocky, shared that last year was the first time that he and his team organised a concert of that magnitude. “We pulled in way over 10 000 people last year. This year, we are reaching for more than double that. Over 20 000 people will be in attendance.

“You live and you learn, and there is always room for improvement. This year's event will definitely be a bigger and better version than last year,” promised King Tee Dee.

He announced that Mshasho will reveal the exciting line-up to the concert next month. “You may watch all our social media pages for the line-up,” he added. Last year's concert was iconic and had people from different parts of the country travelling to Windhoek to witness history. Even though he could not confirm hosting this themed concert in other towns in the future, King Tee Dee seemed open to the idea. “Windhoek is currently Namibia's most populous city and is considered as the hub of entertainment, which is why we started holding the event here. However, you never know what the future holds,” he said.







In recent times we have been witnessing close associations and relationships that King Tee Dee has with specific individuals in the industry like Sunny Boy and Gazza. What seems to be obvious is how they are all increasing together in their respective lanes; Made In Namibia by Sunny Boy and Gazza Milli Concert were successful shows and now 28.09.19 is up next. tjil was curious to know what kind of conversations they have behind closed doors, because clearly something is being preached. For King Tee Dee it is all about taking full ownership of your own story. “People do not find true success by accident, but rather, they find it by being very intentional.

“Work hard, work to figure out what matters to you the most, do it, and make the journey enjoyable,” said King Tee Dee. On his rebranding and addressing the mixed reactions that came with it, King Tee Dee said that people should think of The Dogg as a business, emphasising that he believes that the key to longevity in this industry is adaptability. “A business that remains stagnant will not survive the market in the long run. It was vital that I rebranded myself as King Tee Dee. You need change for growth,” he clarified.

Besides making music, King Tee Dee takes his social responsibilities seriously by using his influence to positively impact society. He is the ambassador for the ministry of health's Voluntary Male Medical Circumcision (VMMC) campaign, a programme that has seen him visiting different parts of the country mobilising men to be circumcised.

“I am proud to say that the targets set for the health ministry have been achieved. I am glad that I am part of their achievement,” he said.
