Introducing SadBoyz Internationale

SadBoyz Internationale is undoubtedly one of the most underrated Namibian music duos, but who cares? Because not only is SadBoyz Internationale undefined by the public’s perception, but they are also not bothered by the public’s definition of their artistry.

SadBoyz has been in the game for some time now, and tjil decided to catch up with the duo to hear what they are up to. The duo is made up of Junior Cupper and Kay-Z Bearens. The latter had a chat with tjil recently.

tjil (t): Many were introduced to your music when you released ‘You Had A Chance’. When did you officially become a group and what motivated this decision?

Kay-Z Bearens (KB): ‘You Had A Chance’ was the first song by Junior Cupper and me. The song enjoyed commercial success by airing on Trace Africa and being the theme song for the 2020 MTC Windhoek Fashion Week. The success of that song required us to spend more time together for performances and that is how we bonded and ended up forming the duo.

t: How do you describe your sound?

KB: Our sound is unique as it's a combination of various genres. We usually refer to the sound as international because of how global it sounds; we are slowly getting fans from many places and they seem to find it easy to sing along. Others refer to our sound as ‘skrrrt skkrrt’ and we don't find that offensive, because ‘skrrrt skkrrt’ is international. We’ve had people compare our sound to Young Thug and that's a compliment for us.

t: You are working on dropping your visuals EP; give us all the details about this project?

KB: We are at an advanced stage of completing this body of work. All the songs on the EP will be complemented with visuals. It is scheduled for release at the end of April. Titled ‘You Had A Chance’, the EP consists of six songs.

t: A visual EP sounds like an interesting way of releasing music in these Covid times – what are some of the setbacks you are experiencing working on this idea?

KB: We felt dropping a visuals EP was going to be more fun because of the pandemic. People are stuck at home - some going through depression and worse, so why not entertain them with some good music and good quality videos? We feel dropping a visuals EP is the new way of promoting music. We are shooting with Reggie Films and Spectrum Media so expect fire content.
