Erongo’s fresh and popping
20 May 2020 | Art and Entertainment
The Erongo region’s musicians have used the time they had on their hands during the first stage of lockdown to produce some good music.
The new hits are complements of Swakopmund’s rising star Yung Kevin, real name Paulus Kavindji, as well as Omaruru native trio Xtrazz.
Yung Kavin teamed up with talented dancer Koloko King to collaborate on a hit titled ‘Vang Vas’.
The amapiano track is catchy and Yung Kavin’s bass fused with Koloko King’s energetic singing throughout make it pleasant to listen to.
The song, which is available online on Namibian Music, has been downloaded 1 200 times and garnered over 2 300 streams on the platform in three weeks.
Video director Nicky Karihinga was entrusted with the visuals, which were recently premiered on YouTube.
Up the tempo
Moreover, Afro-pop trio Xtrazz are getting attention for their latest song, Ndifuna ubumnandi. It’s a radio-friendly track with up-tempo beats and potential to be bigger than it is now if promoted sufficiently.
Bux, a member of the group, told tjil that there are plans to shoot a music video for the track. “We will shoot one when it is safe to do so because we need more people in our music video. It is not yet the right time to shoot a video with the pandemic, but fans can expect one this year,” he said.
Ndifuna ubumnandi can be streamed and downloaded on Donlu Africa.
In related news, Aye-F4r is releasing his second single titled 'Dreams' this Friday at midnight, with tjil already having secured an exclusive listen. 'Dreams' will be available for streaming and download on Donlu Africa.
