Nga-I; “Now you all know who is a king.”

The hits just keep on coming in December even though the year provided various challenges for musicians.

This month, Diogene “D-Jay” Ochs, Jaleesa “Taylor Jaye” Gaoses and Mich “Lil’ Swartbooi” Gaoseb made sure that music lovers are well entertained with their latest hits.

Award winning rapper D-Jay released his latest single “Heard ‘em say”, which is available on Donlu Africa.

On the song D-Jay addresses naysayers who have spoken ill of him and sets the record straight about what he has heard people say about him.

The Walvis Bay-based artist is known for his dominance of the hip hop scene at the turn of the previous decade.

“Heard ‘em say” is well produced with a catchy hook and well written verses. The instrumental is likeable and can put anyone in the mood for December, where everyone is expected to party and have a good time.

Another hit is from Taylor Jaye. The Namibian artist who resides in South Africa, teamed up with Chin Chilla and landed a collaboration with the legendary Martin “King Tee Dee” Morocky.

Taylor Jaye recently scooped the Best House award at the 2020 Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) after years of being nominated but not winning.

The song is a laidback afro beat with Taylor Jaye’s soothing voice complimenting the melody. Chin Chilla’s rap verse is well delivered, while King Tee Dee brings his years of experience to the fore by adding an extra dimension to the song, which is about two lovers who seem to be ending their relationship.

The song is available for download and streaming on namibiamusic.com Another hit is ITYK (Is this your king) from Lil Swartbooi, who features 2018 NAMAs Best Hip Hop nominee Nga-I (real name – Ngaihape Mupurua).

The song starts with a sample of a recent national assembly session where the speaker Peter Katjavivi calls Landless People Movement’s Bernadus Swartbooi to order.

The artists do justice to a good instrumental.

Nga-I mentions all Namibian chiefs from the past like Hendrik Witbooi, Hosea Kutako, Samuel Maharero and present ones like Justus Gareob as he pays homage to them.

“Now you all know who is a king,” he sings.

Lil Swartbooi also pays respect to current rappers who have been maintaining Namibian hip hop on a reasonable standard by referring to them as kings.

ITYK is available on Donlu Africa online streaming platform.
