Artists pen song for the Namibian child

Selma Shiwaya

When you are a superstar entertainer,  there is no better way to encourage learning and to promote gender equality in education than with a song.

 Sean K, Maranatha and Joy Kamati have poured out their hearts in lyrics that have formed a great song titled ‘Abc’s and 123’s’. 

The song carries a message from the Merk Foundation to support children’s education and gender equality in education as part of the organisation’s “Educating Linda Program”.

According to Sean K, Abc’s and 123’s is a fun, happy song encouraging juniors to stick to school especially during the current times. 

“Many were discouraged during the covid-19 pandemic and school reopening and closing must have caused them quite a bit of stress. Thus the focus on them although the song applies to everyone,” he said.

The idea of ABC’s and 123’s, he says, stems from his sister who is also co-writer on the song. I took it and just expanded on the idea.


 “It was a nice challenge writing about something I left years ago. I did not want to lose the Sean K aesthetic but also wanted to relate to children. That’s why with the help of Wayne Mhlanga and Jerry (The producer) we came up with fun music to grab children’s attention. That coupled with easy to understand and straightforward lyrics, I think we got the formula right. I like the song and if I were in primary school or kindergarten I would like it too,” expressed Sean K.


This is the second project Sean K has done for the Merck Foundation. The initial was a song he worked on together with ten other singers from around Africa. The musician says he is working on another project with the Merk Foundation as well as many other projects with various global organizations. 

“It is quite exciting. I would like to be able to represent Namibia a lot more in Goodwill capacity while still making music that I love and known for,” he said.

LEARNING IS FUN: Sean K and Maranatha go out the way to make learning fun.
