Chichi and Ukz welcomes second album
Afro Pop and Dancehall upcoming duo Chichi and Ukz who goes by their real names as Kuutondokwa Jason and Amukoshi Vaino have just re-jumpstarted their music career with a second album titled ‘We are done’.
The two who both grew up in Oshakati set their goals on doing music and they have not looked back since.
Speaking to Vibe, Chichi said the 14 track album which was dropped in December was featured by musicians such as Jomolizo, Maestro, Epuka and others.
“Ukz and I actually started doing music while in primary school at the Omukwa Primary School a village which is a few kilometres out of Oshakati. After realising that we have the same passion, we decided to do music together,” he explained.
After completing their high school, they moved to Windhoek in search for greener pastures.
Chichi said, “we have always been doing music its just that we both go to work and there is really not much time to fully focus on the art only.”
He is currently employed as a car mechanic while Ukz is a bricklayer.
They have said that they are looking forward to featuring bigger names in the music industry such as Gazza, although for now they will keep working with Jomolizo.
“We have seen that there is a gap in the industry that needs to be filled which is a sense of different flavour in music and we are ready to bring that to the table,” he confidently said.
With many duo forming in music only to break up later on the two friends said that they do not have any plans to separate as they have come a long away.
“The unique thing about us is that we are very close, we come from the same village and like I said we grew up together. We have no plans in breaking up ever, we have good communication as well,” he noted.
Chichi also revealed that they did not drop their album in time to meet the deadline for the Namibia Annual Music Awards entry.
“We will try next time, I believe there is always a next time. We didn’t want to rush things and regret later,” he said.
