The 22-year-old Vaughn Ahrens is already a well-known face at local art festivals and big events.
He told tjil ever since he first picked up a guitar, he could not see himself doing anything else.
Although the pandemic temporarily halted his career, it gave him the opportunity to finally finish writing his second album.
Ahrens and his band are known for fun and energetic performances, and he said they will try to live up to that expectation at the Namibia Tourism Expo.
"We are also throwing in some new songs from the second album that have not been released yet, which is quite exciting," he said.
Rising from the ashes
Ahrens said now more than ever, it’s important for the tourism and entertainment industry to join hands and rise from the ashes together.
The pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have dealt both of these industries major setbacks.
"I do not think there is much I can say to make what happened better, or to make someone feel better about the losses suffered. I take resignation in the fact that we were all in the same boat with this one and we can build each other up,” the ‘Calling My Name’ singer said.
