Rapper Show Time, real name Shadrac Uzuva Mavungu, has reached a certain level of acceptance, and if you have considered his art as some sort of fly-by-night method that you thought would have faded away by now, clearly you must feel disappointed.

He describes his music as energetic yet soulful, and has been sharing it with his fans for years now. “I basically do trap music that is accompanied with an energetic feeling, hence I call it 'tranergy'. That is basically the genre I am trying to pioneer,” he said. Show Time is also part of the Namibian Music Awards (NAMAs) nominated trio Touch Down Squad (TDS). On why he is pursuing a solo career, the rapper shared that the group is still very much together, however they are all pursuing solo careers to discover new sounds and strengths.

“The group is still intact, but I am doing this solo thing because I believe as an artist in a group you need to go and explore so you discover your sound and find out what it is that people like about you and come back as a unit and kill it.”

His first official music project as a solo artist titled Wave Walker was released on 12 August. He maintains that Wave Walker is being received positively by his fans and garnering him new ones.

“I have two music videos lifted from the EP, Zone 6 and Northern Lights shot by Imagination Studios and Reggie Films, respectively.

“I released them just a month apart and for now the numbers are doing okay. I will be releasing another music video from the EP soon as well,” said Show Time. He mentioned that, the primary reason he released the six tracks EP was to strengthen his fan base, adding that he has dedicated this year to performing at different events in an effort to market his music to new audiences.

The rapper shared that performing at the Gazza Milli Concert was his highlight performance of the year and the biggest platform he has performed at so far.

“That was something amazing, the stage set-up alone was beautifully designed. I got to meet a lot of artists that I have looked up over the years such as Matongo Family, King Tee Dee, Emtee and B-Red.

“It was a pleasure for me to share a stage with them. I have done other shows but that for me is my highlight of 2019,” he said.
