Naka bids farewell to music

NakaBlacksheep will go down in history as one of Kwaito/Hip Hop’s most prominent rebels as he bids farewell to a long career as a lyrical entertainer.

Born Nakathingo Shimwino, he did not conform to the music norms as he released when it best suited him even if it meant going years without an album release. He is one of many artists who has not cared to publish music just in time for a shiny music award.

He now leaves fans of his music with a 27 track album titled Olufolange which loosely translates to My Turn.

NakaBlacksheep told Vibe that he has decided to leave the music industry to focus on his professional career saying that people eventually grow out of hobbies.

“The same way I used to play soccer and now that I don’t play anymore, somehow growing up makes you drop a couple of things that one used to do,” he said.

He released the album on Namibia Music downloads website first because the process of printing hard copies got delayed, he tells.

“I decided to drop my album online first because I feel promised the people the full album for a while now, so we were like, why not drop online first while we sort out the physical copies,” NakaBlacksheep explained.

He further added that the album had been received well and people love his songs although only a few people with smartphones or computers will be able to access his music for now.

NakaBlacksheep who has been with the Gazza Music Production record label for some time now said that his Olufolange album was produced by Sam E Lee Jones, DJ Shoza, Jeiyo, Arafath, Simeonaire, Tesh, DJ Flow, Veikko, and a South African DJ.

He boasts that Olufolange is better than his previous release, which warrants its name.

“People used to say that my last album is the best, but after working on this one I believe it’s the best, and we, chose to make it a double disc so that people have enough songs that they can listen to for two years or so,” Naka noted.

He tells Vibe that no one will be able to convince him to return to music, although he says his love for music will never die.
