Determination, perseverance and hard work are words upcoming group Vorticella like to identify with.
Currently signed under Mushe’s M-Records, the group specialises in  Kwaito, Dance Hall and Afro Pop, and is comprised of three friends, Johannes Leo (Ramcy), Festus Mweendeleli (Feezy) and Hafeni Nghidishenge (Fancy).
Just four years on the music scene,  the trio has two albums to its name. Their first album dropped in 2011 was titled Penetration, One of the lead members Freezy said “The reception was not so good since it was our debut album although in our home town Omuthiya, it was a hit”
It was followed by  Omanyakwa in 2013 which was nominated for two categories at the Namas.
Omanyakwa landed them recognition in Ghana and for this reason they plan on taking their music international
“We have connections with SWANCY Music Network from Ghana who listened to our album Omanyakwa, it was supposed to be a secret for now but we want to get best wishes from the Namibian nation” said Ramcy.
Label owner Mushe said was first impressed by their music before deciding to sign them.  
“The group approached me at the right time. We set down, I listened to their music and I was very impressed. I see a lot of potential in them and I am honoured to have my record label associated with such complementary talent” said Mushe.
Songs such as City Life, California featuring Mushe, Push Up and Madam are playing on radio stations like Omulunga, Energy and Fresh Fm. And NBC and One Africa play their music video for their track called Money.
“Our next album will be called Speechless and is expected to drop early September and next month we will drop a single called Move featuring Mushe. Our plan is to go international on this album with M-records,” said Fancy.
