The 2017 Namibia Annual Music Award (NAMA) Female Artist of the Year, Monique English, has released her first music video of her debut album, Since 1994.

The video is for her first single, “Work for it”. The talented singer from Swakopmund explained the concept of the video.

“Basically, the video plays out the whole message of the song so well. It's all about women taking control of a situation or an encounter with a guy that thinks he can have her by the snap of his fingers,” said the bubbly English.

The video was shot by Reggie Films production crew (who have also done videos for Sally Boss Madam and KP Illest) in Windhoek. The first scene was at a bar in Olympia and the second scene was shot outside the Warehouse theatre in Windhoek. The 22-year-old songbird explained the importance of the video.

“It's my first video, so it's very important that this video had to be special. In this video, people saw a side of me they never knew. I'd like to call it my alter ego.”

The video, which sees English display good dancing and acting skills, currently has over 7 000 views since it was recently launched on YouTube.

“We're trying to get the video out as far as we can and to exceed the borders. Once people hear the song and see the video; hopefully they'll want to hear more,” she said.

English, who is one of the illustrious members of Deal Done Recordz (DDR) which has housed several award-winning musicians in recent years, maintained that she will be releasing more music videos soon. She is has been in the studio lately working on new music.

“I just want to start working on my second album, do big collaborations and plan on doing a tour soon. I want to say thank you to everyone that has been supporting me and my music. The music video has been getting very good feedback!” she said.

Since 1994 was named after the year she was born.

English started singing when she was nine years old after she entered for a Pop Idol competition in 2003 at Tamariskia Primary School. She matriculated from Namib Highs School in 2012.
