Bobby WVDK on his dominance and rebranding

Bobby Wamboe Van Die Kasie (WVDK) has successfully managed to reinvent himself as a Hip-Hop artist after spending most of his time as an artist under kwaito outfit Magogoz. The rapper is highly respected in the local hip-hop circles for his unique rhyme scheme and has dominated a section of hip-hop in Namibia for quiet a while now.

Speaking to Unwrap.online WVDK says he is in good spirits and has been doing very well. “I am dope and I am feeling great. I dropped a new EP called 420. You should expect new visuals soon,” he said.

He says he used to mesmerised by Hip-hop even when he was with Magogoz and he is in his element when he does HIKWA (Hip-hop and Kwaito). “I just feel like I just answered my calling, Hip-hop is always something I’ve wanted to do,” he shared.

Bobby WVDK says it was easier for him to get things done when he was a part of a group. According to him, doing songs and marketing was much easier when he was a part of Magagoz. He said he has become much more resilient and potent as a solo artist. “I got my own team. I may be a solo artist but I have Mabuzza, Karishma and Tuli Shipanga and my management who help me,” he said.

He dropped his debut album in 2017 called Wamboe Van Die Kasie and says the reception was amazing. “I got a clothing line called WVDK and that’s my brand. I started a label with Mabuzza, Karishma and Tulishipanga called Deep. The brand has grown in terms of the fan base and everything I do,” he shared.

In 2018, the rapper was featured on a song were he dissed Gazza, KP Illest, Young T and King Tee Dee. He says it was a moment he regrets and would never want to do a song like that anymore. He says his relationship with Gazza and King Tee Dee is very good. “In 2019 I am no longer beefing with anyone. Gazza once called me up to congratulate me on a performance and King Tee Dee and Magogoz have been together since 2009. I’m cool with everybody, I don’t have time for beef,” he confessed.

The artist says the music industry has taught him a lot and there are lessons he makes everyday as a musician. “The indsutry has taught me to stay humble and to believe in my art and myself. I take myself seriously and that’s how other people will take me seriously,” he said.

He says he is one of the most genuine artists and wants to connect with his fans and Namibians all over. “I am legit and the label I work is also legit. Rappers from Katutura are here to show people how it’s really done and we really doing things for our communities and making an impact. We are going to change the world,” he stated.
