tjil (t): Firstly, welcome to Namibia. How is KBG doing and how excited are you to be here?
KBG (K): I am doing fine, really, and I was excited and nervous because I did not know what to expect. Otherwise I am happy to be meeting new people and I am having fun with the creatives from Rundu.
t: For those who do not know who KBG is, please share who you are and what you do?
K: I am an artist, a producer, an advocate, a fashion enthusiast and an entrepreneur.
t: You facilitated a workshop on the use of modern technology to make music, what did you share with attendees at this workshop?
K: They learned how to use the modern-day technology to advance their art and how they can utilise digital platforms to push their creativity globally. It was exciting because I also demonstrated how I create my music.
t: What are you hoping attendees left with after the workshop?
K: Knowledge and most definitely tools to equip them for their creative sessions.
t: You are an all-round creative. What opportunities do you wish to explore in Namibia as far as being a creative is concerned?
K: I am not sure yet, but am excited because content creation is about capturing authenticity, and I am a fan of spontaneous activity, so whatever comes I am with it.
t: Lastly, is there anything you would love to share with our readers/your fans that we may have omitted in our questions above?
K: Please come and network. If you missed the workshop, I will still be at The Night Around The Fire concert tomorrow. Follow me on Instagram @kbg_nyalimuzik to stay updated.
