It is no secret that the pandemic has affected the music industry, making it virtually impossible for musicians to perform. And because of the regulations put in place by the government, last year more musicians started drifting away from doing exactly that.
However this did not seem to hold one of Namibia’s greatest songstress, Adora to come back from her hiatus and drop a love song titled ‘Mbekusuvera’ which means ‘I love You’ in Otjiherero, just in time for Valentine’s day.
According to her, the song is dedicated to someone special, but it is also for the ones that think Valentines is great. “The song was specifically dedicated to the girlfriend of a very good friend of mine as Valentine’s day present,” she said.
The song is produced by Mr Glo from Glo studios who also handled mixing and mastering, with memorable features like the beat, gleeful lyrics and chorus that will make one sing along.
Furthermore, Adora told unwrap.online that she joined a bikers club in 2020 called the ‘Eenghoshi Bikers Club’ because she is a bike enthusiast.
Adora also said that she had a tough time being productive in the studio because she lost her momenta at some point, but recovered it once again. “ I rebranded myself and my sound during this time,” she said.
She recently collaborated with other Namibian artists on a Standard Bank campaign where she added a puzzle to the bank’s history by launching a new song and video that captures and corporate values and creativity among other Namibia’s artists and influencers. Adora believed that the campaign came as both an opportunity and a blessing.
“The standard bank ‘It Can Be’ campaign came at a time I least expected and they re-ignited hope in me as an artist, a creative and someone who is trying to bring bread on the table, and I am blessed to really work with Namibian influencers both young and old that I can learn so much from them,” she said.
