Local musical duo, Cool Under Pressure is currently making waves with their hit song Pangaman and has recently dropped a brand-new video.
The song has attracted music lovers from all corners of the country hitting local radio stations, clubs and taxis during the festive season and has now been nominated in the 2018 Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) in three categories.
Speaking to Vibe, William Shilamba better known as Wily G who is also a producer said the duo never expected Pangaman to blow up the way it did as they considered it as “just another song on the album”.
“We didn’t really push it. It just stood by itself. The whole of 2017 the song has been playing and we didn’t even perform it but from radio stations to Juke Boxes and anywhere else I travelled people knew the song. They however never knew who the artists were,” he said.
The song has been taken from a Gazza rendition.
“Even when we shot the video people kept asking where Gazza in the video is, if you read the comments on YouTube, you will see what I am talking about,” he laughed.
Pangaman was produced by Sam E Lee Jones while his partner Dalmau Hamaambo aka Ice cooked up the lyrics.
“My partner is a very good song writer and a rapper as well, he writes most of our songs and I produce,” he stated.
Asked how they feel about their nomination, Willy G said they are quite excited as it is their first time being nominated as artists in the NAMAs.
“We are really honoured, considering that our first hit was released seven to six years ago. We have been passionate for so long and it is indeed a good feeling to know that people are now recognising our music,” he said.
