Our co-scribe and talented musician Adolf Kaure, known in the music fraternity as Aye-F4r, recently released his latest single, “Champion”.

According to the hit maker, who is an afro-centric and conscious poet, his music is aimed glorifying God. “Music is created by God so that we can worship and praise Him through it. My music glorifies God. This kind of music is there to help people who are not yet born-again Christians and who don’t have a personal relationship with God to take the decision to follow him.”

The Swakopmund-based musician says the concept of “Champion” – a song with which he collaborated on with Yung Kavin – is available on the online music platform Donlu Africa.

“I rap about how I overcame my battles and I want others to also be champions like me. The song is for everyone going through issues in their life. It also reminds the listener to allow our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to carry your burdens. By doing so, you can become a champion. Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins, is the champion of champions,” he said.
So, how did it come about that he recorded with Yung Kavin?

“I received a few beats from my good friends Dewi Mukumbo, who is a beat maker and a producer known as J.U.Ice. When I played it, I started freestyling. After I completed the lyrics, I called my friend Yung Kavin and told him that I found this killer beat that suits his voice and rapping style. So off we went to the studio and recorded ‘Champion’.”

The mixing and mastering of the track was done by Coastal Army’s Ally the Mini King.

Musicians who inspire him include Shikololo, Kapital K, Sho Baraka, Da T.R.U.T.H, Lauryn Hill and Bob Marley.

Aye-F4r hinted that he plans to release a second mixtape later this year but remains tight-lipped about the title and featuring artists.

“I will probably release a few more singles and record a few music videos. So far I have really received good feedback from the industry for ‘Champion’.”

Aye-F4r started his music journey at the age of 13. At school he sang with the Westside High School Choir and continued his love for choral music as a member of the Namib High School Choir under the guidance of the late Ena Venter.

Under the leadership of Bonnie Pereko, Aye-F4r was a second bass in the UNAM Choir for four years. In this time he participated in a memorable joint concert with the University of Cape Town in 2012 in South Africa.

During his tenure at UNAM, the rapper also took part in freestyling platform known as Verbalize and subsequently released his debut mixtape, The Blood of the Lamb, in 2013.

He started rapping in 2000 under the pseudonym Eazy-Aye taking part in talent shows at his former school, Namib High School.

He also plans to publish his poems in an anthology soon.

“Upcoming artists should strive to be authentic and to learn the business side of music,” he advises.

“Champion” can also be streamed and downloaded for free on other online platforms including Soundcloud, Reverbnation and Audiomack.
