Award-winning duo Makurunganga will be releasing their fourth album, titled Wera this coming Friday.
The house music group, consisting of DJ Glob and DJ Zille said this album is long overdue and has been completed in time for the festive season.
Speaking to Vibe, Dj Glob said, “We are dropping our fourth studio album title Wera which means a game (dice, cards, and gambling) in RuKwangali.”
The album was produced by several producers including Arrafat, Glo, Thommy, ChesterBeatz, God-Gee, and House Guru Gang.
“On this album, we featured prominent musicians such as Berthold, Sunny Boy, Neslow, Syclone, TKB, Skinny Fella, Sean Bleazy, Thommy, Arrafat and DJ Chahelman,” Dj Glob said.
He added that this project is a genre combination of house, rumba and afro-pop.
Dj Glob said, “We would also like to take this opportunity to apologise to our fans, family, friends and business associates for the delay of the album. Although we don’t regret the delay in the project because it was worth waiting for.”
He explained that the duo wanted to give fans the best they have to offer, which is why they did not rush into releasing.
“It is better to be frustrated about the release date than to be disappointed with the end product. By the time Wera hits your ears, you will forget about the delay,” he said.
Adding that the whole team worked hard to make sure that they drop the best product.
“Producers and sound engineers in the sound laboratories needed nothing but uniquely blended of Ngarangi sound that will last on the market and eventually paint Makurunganga legacy,” he noted.
Dj Glob also said that the group will be shooting new music videos soon.
“As soon as we have a specific date and venue for the official CD launch party we will give out all the information,” he said.
In 2015, the duo launched their second album titled Katondo at the Kavango Trade Centre in Rundu.
