Challo maintains that right now he is one not to be overlooked, or underestimated.
Challo shared that the title of his new album is Owami Challo, which means I am still Challo.
He mentioned that the album has 11 songs and was produced by Mo Fire Blenge. “I am grateful to Mo Fire Blenge for having produced the majority of this album but more than that for believing in me and motivating me to get back in the music industry as a solo artist,” said Challo.
Describing the sonic direction he took on the album, Challo said he was not afraid to fuse different styles with Oviritje. “Oviritje as a genre has grown over the years and as a result it has produced sub-genres, and on this album I was not scared to tap into new sounds. “I have recorded a classic Oviritje album. I cannot wait for people to hear it,” he said.
He announced that he will also be having album launches at Walvis Bay and Opuwo later in the year. His aim is to spread the music as much as he can. “Like I said Oviritje has grown over the years. I am at a point where I am no longer making music for a certain group of people, my music is universal,” he said.
