Adolf Kaure - Local musician Ponti Dikuua released his debut album titled Finally on different online platforms on Wednesday.

Explaining why he decided on the title, Ponti said that he has been around in the music industry for 13 years and featured many artists.

"I did however not drop an album prior to releasing Finally. Over the past years my fans have been been enquiring constantly about when I would release my own album. So the day has finally come.”

The album consists of several genres including R&B, house, funk as well as afro-pop. Ponti produced most tracks himself under Mad Records, except for three songs which he co-produced with an Angolan producer known as Jester Joker.

According to him the two most sentimental songs on the 15-track album are “Who am I?” and “Just enough”.

“Who am I” takes me back to the advice given to me by my late mother and still resonates with me today: Be kind to others and to yourself. Don’t compete with others to the point where you lose yourself. and stay true to who you are.”

He wrote “Just enough” for his wife.

"I did so to reassure her that her hard work does not go unnoticed and that she is more than enough for me."

Gazza’s 2007 hit “Let’s get together” features Ponti’s powerful vocals. Recently, Ponti collaborated with several artists including NIA on a gospel song which won Best Gospel at the NAMAs (Namibian Annual Music Awards).

He also collaborated with Zenseni Haraseb whom he describes as an extremely talented young upcoming artist. Haraseb is currently studying music at the University of the Free State in South Africa.

Ponti also joined forces with Jester Koker and DJ Helio Baiano in recent times.

“They are Angolan-based producers and artists who I met in Namibia a few years ago and from whom I have learnt a great deal. Our songs “The Sound” and “Benguela” have been hit songs in Angola for the past two years.”

Ponti grew up in Walvis Bay, attended De Duine Secondary Schools and sung in the Mascato Youth Choir. He explained how this has molded him into the musician he is today.

“We all know that the coast produces great singers! I was fortunate enough to be a member of two boy groups named 7 of Us and Quadville back then. The members of these groups are all my friends who I also sang with in the Mascato Youth Choir, a choir that shaped our musical talents.”

Finally is available on online platforms like Deezer, Soundcloud and iTunes.
