Ready to share his solo work

061 Music's JizziManiak is gearing up for the release of his first solo album under the label.

05 July 2019 | Art and Entertainment

JizziManiak officially joined 061 Music in 2014 and was featured on the group's 2016 album titled The Area Code. He was also featured on the latest 061 Music album Nothing but Beautiful Music which was released in November 2018. After appearing in the above-mentioned collective projects, JizziManiak is confident and ready to share his solo work.

He describes himself as a conscious street rapper from Windhoek who expresses his memoirs about his experiences of growing up in the hood with hard-hitting lyrics. He told tjil that his music is real rap laced with new-school beats with an old-school nostalgia feel to it. “I am well-known in the streets, having started out freestyle, battling on the corners of Katutura competing against rappers from other locations,” he said. His latest single lifted from the soon-to-be-released album is called Shilonga. He describes it as a well-composed conscious song about overcoming struggles and having an optimistic outlook on your future through hard work.

“The beat is laced with African sample vocals and backed by a theatrical drum and brass instrumental backdrop. The conscious track possesses a strong message spreading wisdom and the perseverance of the 'blue-collar' worker,” he said, adding that the song has been submitted to different radio stations and is available for streaming on online music platforms including Donlu Africa, Audiomack and Sound Cloud.

The music video for Shilonga was shot by Reggie Films and can be viewed on YouTube. He added that the video was shot in his neighborhood to visually represent what he addresses in the song.

He announced that his next single is titled Friend Zone and will feature his label-mate Balu Panda. His aim is to create enough hype around the album before it is made available for purchase. He revealed that the album is titled Full Time, Game Down and consists of 12 songs and will be released later this year. “I am passionate about creating music that is why I am versatile and open to experiment with different sounds. I can jump on any beat and I'm willing to collaborate with other artists,” he said.

He promised to carry on the legacy of late rapper Catty Cat and thanked him for the opportunity to be on the 061 Music label. “I thank the pioneers and everyone who granted me the opportunity and platform to showcase my talent. To my fans; look out for my new body of work, I promise to deliver and keep on supporting 061 Music,” he said.
