After dropping her critically acclaimed debut album Fertile last year, and collaborating with the likes of King Elegant, Athawise, Lioness, Waka and more, Top Cheri scooped the Best Album of The Year and Best Newcomer awards at this year's Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs).

Tomorrow the musician, author and entrepreneur will release her sophomore album The Matrimony.

Her ideologies, sense of self, unique identity and futuristic approach to her music are placing her in a space where there are no restrictions and conformity. Now in the second phase of her music career, and as the first lady of the coolest music stable in the country, she is hungrier than ever. The competition needs to be worried. Very worried.

Compared to her previous album, the award-winning muso mentioned that The Matrimony is deeper in terms of the content she explored.

“It is not as loud as Fertile. Songs on this album talk about bonds and scars.

“There are also songs you can dance to, of course, but most of them are songs with meaning and songs from the heart,” she said.

Top Cheri told tjil that initially when she started doing music, not many took her seriously and this album is to affirm her commitment to her calling, which is music. She will do so in a private and intimate wedding ceremony (album launch) with invited guests from the music fraternity. “Basically the launch will be treated like a wedding and at the ceremony people will get to hear songs from the album.

“What will happen is that Andrew, who is my producer, is going to walk me down the aisle. At the reception venue we will find Imms The Guitarist, Mr Glo and DJ KBoz, who will put up a play blessing me and officiate the wedding,” she said, adding she will go on an album tour to different towns.

In other news, the Danisa hitmaker also announced she is now the ambassador of the health ministry's cancer campaign. She further shared that raising awareness about cancer is something close to her heart.

“In all honesty a lot of people are not informed about cancer and I am glad to be onboard for this campaign. We will be going to different parts of the country, visiting health centres,” she said.
