Home Entertainment A cue from Maria's balancing act

A cue from Maria’s balancing act

She is Maria at noon and ML at night, such is the dynamism in Maria Immanuel who is juggling the best of both worlds in arts and corporate world.

Well it cannot be easy trying to stitch a music career by burning the midnight oil and carrying the heavy workload that working at state house brings.

But well, you not ML.

She surely finds her way to balancing a rather challenging job as an Agriculture economist at state house and being a musician in the same vein.

ML who recently dropped her single on the cassinga massacres, arguably one of the darkest pieces of history is an easy person to relate to but rather difficult to judge both as a musician and a professional.

She has of late been pushing her YouTube channel to reach numbers during the lockdown period. ML said she believes Namibian artist need to continue finding ways of staying afloat despite the thought times ahead.

ML is a staunch believer in where there is will there is a way. “ The artists are one group overlooked in Namibia, I expected the government not to underestimate the power of artists especially when it comes to information dissemination,” she said.

She added that artists could have been used more to do campaigns on COVID-19 with a budget allocation for such purposes since they are completely cut off from performances and events that could have given them income.

ML told unWrap.online that she is currently running a cover challenge for the lockdown song where singer record themselves doing the challenge and post on social media and tag her.

According to ML the best song with more viewers and likes will than stand a chance to walk away with N$ 2000.00. “ That’s to give back to singers and upcoming artists and creative so they can use my beat and lyrics to win some money,” she said

Aside from that she is also working on fourth album to be released in June.
