Moses Benhard hails from the town of copper, or geographically speaking, Tsumeb. When he steps into his alter ego called SkArii, this 25-year-old heats it up like Dundee Precious Metals.

Having produced the viral hit song ‘When The Rain Rain So Much Heavily’ with his label mate Cota Inmza back in 2019 and following it up with joint EPs such as ‘Trendy Humour’ (2019), ‘Lazi Sessions’ (2020) and ‘Taboo’ (2021), you can understand the heat.

His ability to produce stellar beats has catapulted him into a league of his own, and now in the third quarter of 2021, he feels ready to release a solo project.

Titled ‘Ohole Pack’, he described this project as nostalgic but stressed that it’s still fresh and electric with a chilled vibe to it.

“The Ohole Pack is a two track EP. We will be releasing the track list to the public in due time.

“The project also pays homage to some of my favourite female Namibians artists,” he said.

Set apart

On the goals he has for ‘Ohole Pack’, SkArii shared that his previous projects were all joint efforts, thus he would like to achieve mainstream solo success, locally and internationally, and make a name for himself as one of the best upcoming producers in the country.

“This EP is innovative and different, nothing like it has been done in Namibia before. I strongly believe it will set me apart from my peers,” SkArii said confidently.

He added that the EP will come with visualisers on YouTube, but no music videos, stating that he’s still working on visuals for the previous EP (‘Taboo’) with his team. ‘Ohole Pack’ will be available on all major streaming platforms.
