The King of Hikwa Sunny Boy, will finally be releasing his long waited 7th album Uuyelele at the end of March this year.
Sunny Boy, whose real name is Sunday Shipushu told Vibe that the album is indeed ready to hit the market after spending long hours in studio.
With 14 tracks on the upcoming offering, Sunny Boy has featured artists such as Salvador, Kp Illest, PDK and a couple of new kids on the block.
“Uuyelele means light, because I believe this album now defines me and my music. I feel like I have finally found myself and figured out what I want to do with my music,” he explained.
Apart from the Uuyelele project, the Yaziza prince also dropped a brand new single late last year titled ‘Week in Week out’ featuring Salvador and was well received as it found itself hitting the number 1 spot on local charts.
“People are actually enjoying the song. However, I will be releasing another single before the album officially drops,” he said.
Although the date for the release has been set already, Sunny Boy said details for the official CD launch party will be out soon.
He said, “The CD launch party is definitely in the pipeline but for now we are still deciding. We are currently more focused on getting the songs on the market.”
The Hikwa crooner who has gained popularity after releasing his old time hit track Balance further said he has not entered for the upcoming Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) due to the deadline date set.
“Even though I could not enter for the awards because I haven’t released yet, I don’t believe in dropping an album in December. Everyone releases during that time rushing for the NAMAs but what happens to the album if you don’t win,” he noted.
He also added that, releasing an album during the festive season is never the best option as fans have to many options to choose from.
Sunny Boy said, “Everyone drops in December, so fans get confused on whose CD to really buy and people don’t really have time to be listening to different CD’s at the same time during the festive season.”
The upcoming offering was produced by different producers including Glo, Elvo and Araffath.
