Dubbed as the Wiz Kid of Namibia, King Elegant released visuals to this song about four weeks ago and impressed many music fans.
The fact that King Elegant has been punishing instrumentals the way he has in the past few years, and somehow managed to go mostly unnoticed by the mainstream eye, only meant that when everyone caught on it had to be a situation. The short video was received with praise by many including industry heavyweights King Tee Dee and Kp Illest.
All We Can - Sunny Boy
This jam is lifted from his latest album Uuyelele and features George Nderura.
The music video was premiered on NBC's Whatagwan last week. It is party song that blends Hikwa and Oviritje. If you still do not have this song on your playlist consider adding it, Sunny Boy has another summer anthem.
Hakusembe - TKB ft Maszanga
Released earlier this week on various digital platforms, Hakusembe is one of 2019's unexpected collaborations that makes perfect sense.
If you are one of those people who go on about how music was at its peak when authentic Namibian sounds ran things back in the day, this song is for you. The manner in which the trio TKB delivers their lyrics is refreshing (or is it nostalgic?) and the feature give the song some good needed range and cultural diversity.
Amen - Fire16 ft Saundra Dei
The video to this song was released two weeks ago on YouTube. This is by far Fire16's best and most diverse work.
Though his lyrical ability has never faltered, in the past he could've been accused of leaning more to one side of the hip-hop sonic spectrum than others, but with this single he delivers a contemporary song without compromising his subject matter all.
The video allows one to take in all its elements without losing attention. “The video was shot in two different countries and we used technology to cross borders.
“Saundra Dei is based in Baltimore, Maryland in the US. It was an interesting process,” said Fire16.
