1Dawn unleashes Cosa Nostra
27 May 2021 | Art and Entertainment
Swakopmund-based dancehall and hip-hop artist Ravenelli “1Dawn” Inichab recently released his debut solo EP (extended play), Cosa Nostra.
According to 1Dawn, the 14-track project is available via online music streaming platforms like Audiomack, Soundcloud and Donlu Africa.
The EP was released on his birthday, for which he also recorded a music video for the track “Fi Di Weekend”. This song will feature on another upcoming album.
1Dawn says that music has always been part of him.
“I grew up in a musically influenced home. I used to listen to reggae, hip hop and a diverse set of tunes. From a young age I wrote music for other people and the bug really bit me in high school when I entered a talent show.”
At the time he was part of a group known as the Prince Posers, which won the competition and received a recording deal.
Today he aims to create something new.
“I drew up a new formula for the game and brought a new flavour to the scene.”
In terms of the new EP, he says: “There is nothing but 1Dawn on the EP. It is an introduction to me as an artist and what I have to bring to the table.”
1Dawn is part of the duo known as Tribe XIII, of which a musician known by the pseudonym “I Sun” is the other half.
Some of the tracks on Cosa Nostra include “Been around”, “Just a chance” and “Formula”.
