“Yes-Ja! It's been a long journey. At first I thought it was a spam email but I realised it was real. They found my music online and liked what I did. I convinced my band to go to the first casting session in June, and then everything came, one thing after the other. We just moved from stage to stage, and now we are in the top three bands that made it to the live shows in October,” he told tjil.
Ees believes that the X-Factor is a great platform to put Namibian music out there, and that is one thing that excites him about moving to the next stage. The artist said that he has done a lot of things in his career and one thing he is certain of, is that he is killing his live performances.
“I have done a lot of things over the past few years that I am not scared for live shows as my band and I work very well together when we perform live. I want to give it 110%, which means the next three weeks will be a lot of hard work promoting, practising and preparing to try and make it to the final,” he
Ees says he is pro-Namibia and he makes sure he adds Namibian flavour to everything he does - from his performances to the Namibian branded attire for his band and himself. “I feel like it's my destiny to put Namibia on the world map, and show them what the 'Nam Flava' and our beautiful country is all about. That's also why I was so concerned that we keep our Namibia clean and helped initiate the clean-up campaign beginning of the year,” he said.
He urged people to work together to make Namibia the best possible country it can be. The 'Sundowner' singer says he will push to bring his best forward, together with his band.
“I would really appreciate if Namibia supports me by sharing the message and support via social media as this always gives me a lot of energy to push our culture internationally,” he said.
