Marvi’s music therapy

Swakopmund born and raised singer Marvin Geingob, better known to his fans as Marvi, is working hard on his debut album.

Speaking to Erongo this week the 25-year-old, who is also a radiographer, said he uses music to heal the masses.

“My music has a rich emotional language attached to it which is grief, awe of God, love, loss, joy and motivation. I personally believe that without music, life would not be the same because music is something that people can connect to and use as therapy,” said Marvi.

Marvi has currently released three singles namely “Miss you” (a song dedicated to his late mother and everyone who has lost a loved one), produced by Ongushu Records and featuring rapper Yung Kavin, “Reason” and Questions (featuring ML).

Marvi explained what inspired him to pursue a career in music.

“Growing up, I didn't have a lot of hobbies. I wouldn't say there was any person who inspired me to do music because I am not born from a musical family. I got my inspiration from listening to different types of music. Every time I listened to a nice song it would always evoke a certain type of emotion; that's how I fell in love with music. My main genre is R&B, I do a bit of Afro pop and Reggae that's why it’s hard to plot me as an R&B artist. I am very creative when it comes to music,” he said.

Marvi described his greatest achievement as seeing his music videos being aired on television stations like NBC and One Africa TV and people telling him that his music stirs their emotions.

He described how he overcame challenges in his career.

“Like any other career, there has been a range of setbacks but I always bounce back and carry on regardless. A positive attitude and having God as my primary support system has helped me overcome the challenges the music industry brought my way.

“Like the old saying goes, every struggle builds character. Put God first and don't let anyone talk you out of your dreams because all dreams can be brought to reality.”

He is hard at work promoting the “Marvi” brand before he drops his first album by the middle or late 2019. The albums core genre will be R&B but will include three or four tracks of other genres.
