“Success is a gradual process, that does not happen overnight” Bantu.
Music is only as good as the message embodied in it. The words are what captures most of us, and someone who can spit proverbs on a beat and we are able to grab something from what he is saying becomes the cherry on the cake. With golden hits such as Kafaeendona that made airwave on YouTube last year and got a lot of air plays on local radio stations Bantu1 is definitely one of Namibia’s fastest raising Afro-kwaito artists with another album under his belt.
“A bird usually makes its nest by gathering one stick a day until its nest is finally done, and that is what the album is titled. Shiengeenge a full proverb which means Shiengeenge osha kati kamwe, English translation it means success is a gradual process that takes time, I wanted to illustrate to people that they should not rush with everything. They want at the same time, they must work towards their dreams, step by step until they eventually get there it does not happen overnight, that is the broadened meaning of the album” Bantu said.
