ÔÇ£I am educatingÔÇØ Ambassador Star

ambassador Star is one of the few Hip Hop artists creating a platform for underground Hip Hop artists to show their lyrical talent with his Choto Battle Grounds project.
Choto Battle Grounds gives Hip Hop lovers a chance to rap battle against other Hip Hop fanatics.
Ambassador Star (24) was born Vegan Kabuku and has been a globetrotter most of his early youth year having lived in Sweden, USA, South Africa and Zimbabwe. He has been doing music for about 11 years but as a young rapper, he took his fare share of booing and stage embarrassment, when his over confident self went on stage with his old crew Bandana Rose and got laughed off stage.
He describes his music as truth. “I do music because I am good at it. I want to use it as a vehicle to success. I venture into business with my music” he says.
He also says that resources in Namibian Hip Hop are restricted to a certain small circle. His first single Truth is still in circulation and is his most successful single.
It managed to pull off being No.1 for nine weeks on Energy 100.
The Pressure Is On featuring Mappz is the single that is out and making the airwaves. It was the theme song for radio Energy 100’s count down.
The song talks about the pressure he feels when his music is not making the waves he is hoping for. “If I don’t make it, I am a sucker” he says.
He also tells The Villager that although he is a B.I.G kind of rapper, if he could he would make music with Bob Marley or Oliver Mtukudzi, but his favourite local rappers are Tesh and Mark.
His latest project is the Entrepreneur mixtape which will be dropped this year.
It will be his first solo mixtape to see the light. He has worked on a joined mixtape in the past, but its whereabouts are not known to him or his producer than.
