Good art takes time

Sean Blizzy's biggest hit might be titled 'Blesser' but it took him over a decade to be blessed with a breakthrough and get his dues.

Now in 2019, he is his town's pride and glory, and he does not plan on giving that up anytime soon.

With an album titled Kavango Zinyetu, which denotes a big idea and lifestyle, Sean Blizzy is on a mission to keep the throne with his new project and brand repositioning.

Kavango Zinyetu was digitally released on 2 May and will be launched officially on Friday, 24 May at Werah Café and Theatre in Rundu. He describes this body of work as one of his best musical offerings. The album consists of deep house, Afro-fusion rhythm blended with traditional percussions and ancestry sounds.

“Expect to be mesmerised. I mostly used Rukwangali, Oshiwambo, dialects from Zambezi and English on this album,” said Sean Blizzy.

He shared that he began working on the album in June 2016 and has recorded more than 50 songs; thus he has left out more than 30 songs. He said that the album is packaged in a way that it caters for everybody.

“After listening to this album, I want people's musical thirsts to be quenched. Everyone will have a favourite song on the album after listening to it,” he said confidently.

Speaking on the rollout plan for the album, Sean Blizzy mentioned that he has a team responsible for distributing physical copies across different towns.

He announced that by July the physical copies will be available nationally. At the moment, Kavango Zinyetu is digitally available for purchase on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Deezer, Spotify and Pandora. “I am also pushing the album through social media.

I am not afraid to pay Facebook and Instagram to promote my music. I have been doing that for a while now; I will also shoot more videos and do more shows to give it more exposure,” said Sean Blizzy.

On the album, he features; Sito-Jah Mufasa, Zhondiena, Challo, and Ayce Flame. “In production I worked with Sean Lik, but for the most part, most of the songs were written, produced, mixed and mastered by me.”

“This album has 15 songs and two bonus tracks. Three more videos can be expected from this album,” he added.

He maintains that he has already achieved how he pictured his work to be received; which is to be listened to worldwide. For Sean Blizzy, this album is a conduit to express his God-given talent in the correct manner. “Ultimately, my goal is to master the art of creating music so that I can also be a music guru. My wish is for my art to live forever,” he said.

Based on how the lead single has been received, Sean Blizzy is positive that this body of work is going to do well commercially. At the time of going to print, Blizzy had 78 338 downloads and 73 538 plays for his single Love In My House on “A lot of my fans overseas are purchasing the songs online as well,” he added.

Having been in the music scene for over a decade and consistently producing for other artists but only having a major breakthrough now, Sean Blizzy admitted to being underrated.

“I remember in 2010 I took instrumentals to one of the big artists in Namibia to use on their album but they never did,” he recalled, adding that this never discouraged him, but made him push harder so that one day they'll knock on his studio door for projects.

Being based in Rundu, he had this to say about the music scene at the town: “Rundu is like the hidden music factory in Namibia, they must give us time and Rundu will be the capital city of hybrid music in the country. Our music here is like fruit salad - all in one.”

When people reflect on Sean Blizzy and his artistry, as an artist he wants to be remembered as Kavango's romantic singer. As a producer he wants to be remembered as the one who created the new sound for this era in the region.

“I literally helped most of the artists in Rundu to pop because of my unique sounds,” he summed up.
