Young and upcoming 21-year-old Ndapandula Hailula aka Royal Ndapy has just dropped her debut single titled Fire and has plans to release three more singles by July.
The Afropop and Reggae songstress who hails from Oshakati and raised in Oranjemund but later moved to Windhoek said, she is now ready to penetrate into the competitive industry while making a name for herself.
Royal Ndapy had a sit-down with Vibe and this is what she had to say…
Full Name: Ndapandula Hailula
Stage Name: Royal Ndapy
Occupation: Musician and student
Vibe: Where did your inspiration come from and how was the Fire song received by music lovers?
RN: It was received well, I really did not expect such responses and I believe I was born a singer, it is my hobby and something I have always loved to do. I started singing in church choirs back then.
Vibe: Are you planning on dropping an album soon?
RN: Not anytime soon, I am working on pushing singles for now and putting my name out there?
Vibe: What are some of the challenges you experience as an upcoming musician?
RN: Criticism, I think that is one of the elements that can break or make an artist, you will find people criticising instead of helping you grow.
Vibe: Are you signed under any record label?
RN: Not for now, I don’t want to be under any record label for now, I am just getting assistance from the Blackwidow Music Entertainment.
Vibe: Who would you like to work with in the future?
RN: I have no idea yet, I will do research and see who I would like to work with.
Vibe: Besides music, what else do you do?
RN: I am a student but I would not like to talk about that.
Vibe: Who produced the fire song?
RN: It was Kanibal.
Vibe: How do you manage to balance between music and school?
RN: I do music during the weekend, I really don’t have challenges to juggle around the two. When you love something, you will always make time for it no matter what.
Vibe: So, what are your future plans?
RN: More and more fire coming from Royal Ndapy.
