Tjakova Joseph aka Syclone has just released a 17 track album titled ‘The origin of Ntundiliro’ which brings back the fusion of hip hop and traditional sound.
The Rundu born and raised artist says he has been working on his debut album for almost a year alongside producers such as Mr Glo and Araffath.
“I have been doing music for a while now but I only got an opportunity to release my first album last month. The copies we have printed where only made available for the people who had ordered in advance,” he says.
He further told Vibe that he has ordered extra copies that would be available in all music stores because the public could not get hold of his first CDs.
The album consist of hip hop, RnB, Afro pop tracks including a little bit of house and has featured artists such as Hishishipapa, King Elegant, Castro, Neslow, S-man and Mr Glo.
Syclone, says his music career only started getting somewhere after he made the move to the city.
“I have been doing music for six years now but people only got to know my music when I moved to Windhoek where I met Araffath,” Syclone notes.
Although he has managed to drop his first album, he says receiving the final printed copies on time remains the biggest challenge for him and for many musicians.
Before going solo, Syclone was part of a Hip hop group from Rundu named The Constellation in 2014.
He further told Vibe that he has entered his music for the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs).
“I have entered the NAMAs, so I will be happy if I am nominated in a couple of categories,” Syclone says.
According to Syclone, the new album has been received well by music lovers and he cannot wait to receive the next copies.
