The 2017 Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) Best Female Artist of the Year, Monique English, established a home studio at her residence in Windhoek.

The Swakopmund raised songbird says having her own studio makes it easier for her to produce new music.

“I find it really easy to compose and record in my own space. It gives me ample time to record and produce good music. It’s very easy and efficient to have your own studio,” said English.

Monique, who also walked away with the 2018 NAMAs award for best single for her song “Does she know”, added that the studio, which still does not have a name, was set up for her own benefit and music.

She has an indoor music producer who helps her with the recording aspect.

“I saved up and I received financial help from my mom. In comparing my studio to some of the ones I’ve worked in, I still have a long way to go and have to do a lot to get it to what it is supposed to be.”

The 25-year-old, who left Deal Done Recordz, is currently an independent artist. She says she is looking forward to releasing new music in future.

“After Deal Done Recordz I thought it was time I start doing my own thing. I took a break and now I need to get my head back into the music.”

Monique is working on an album. She says she would love to release a single or two, most probably within the next month.

The award winning songstress started singing at the tender age of nine after she entered a Pop Idol competition in 2003 at Tamariskia Primary School in Swakopmund.

She currently has one studio album under her name.

The album, titled Since 1994, is named after the year she was born and was released in 2016.

She is renowned for her hits “Walking Away”, “Work for it” and “Smile”.
