Mbalangandja diversifies his sound

On the back end of releasing his second album Odhino Vol.1 in 2018 and working on visuals to complement the project, Mbalangandja has been a busy man.

Predominantly an Afropop artist, Mbalangandja maintains that he is quite content with the reception to his latest body of work.

He announced that his next offering Odhino Vol.2 will entail various genres.

“I am greatly inspired by Gazza, and he does not just do kwaito, he taps into different genres as well.

That is what my next music project is going to be about; experimenting with different sounds.

“I describe myself as an Afropop artist who also does Afrobeat and traditional Oshiwambo music.

I believe it helps to be versatile and I will strongly push that agenda on my next album,” said Mbalangandja.

He shared he has clearly identified his musical identity with a defined sound and style within the vernacular space.

“I believe I have found my niche and I want to expose my fan base to other genres that I am capable of doing.

I want them to know I am versatile.” Mbalangandja said the album is slated for release in September.

He announced he is working on shooting a couple of music videos for his current project before he diverts his entire attention to Odhino Vol.2.

“My current album speaks about socials ills in society; I am educating my fans to not judge a book by its cover.

With such a strong message, I do not want to rush it, I want people to fully grasp the message before I move on to the next project.

“I just dropped a music video called Blessings; it was shot by Weezy Visuals.

This is not the last video from Odhino Vol.1 I will put out two more videos before this ship is sailed,” he shared.

For his forthcoming album, Mbalangandja maintains that he wants to use the project as a channel to remind people that having moral values is a cool thing.

He added he wants to ignite his fans to be critical of developments that happen in their communities.

“There are so many bad things that have been normalised these days; with Odhino Vol.2 I do not intend to serve my fans with just dance music, I want people to think critically of things,” he said.
