Already sporting a music video, Mr Makoya's latest single is picking up momentum on radio and online. tjil had a one-on-one with the artist on his new game plan. Released on Friday, 18 September, Mr Makoya shared that the response to Can't Stop Us and its video has been positive, adding that his style of music has slightly changed.

“You won't hear the same Mr Makoya you have become accustomed to over the years. People have a cliché that there is maturity when working on their new projects, but for me, I just redefined Mr Makoya into something else - but my signature is still there.”

He said that he is for black excellence, which is why the single can be purchased on Viral.com and Donlu Africa for N$3.50. “It's time for us as artists to start working with Namibian industry players who are trying to steer the music industry into the right direction,” the artist said.



Next move

With a hot new song out, Mr Makoya said his next move is to do his part in keeping the industry alive by not giving up just because of the pandemic or because the Namibia Annual Music Awards' woes.

Besides music, the musician said he has been focusing on being a family man and working on his new family business, SUBU A, which is a service provider that sells electricity, water , airtime and pays your DStv account.
