2021 looks like it may be the year where one will get to see more local artists joining forces to create authentic Namibian content. Such a project is well underway with two of Namibia’s top tier entertainers namely, Exit and Qonja availing themselves for a collaboration album titled ‘Die Hele Box’ that one can only hope will be prodigious.
According to the executive producer DJ KBoz, Exit and Qonja invited him to the North to produce an album. “They called me at the beginning of the year and told me they wanted me to head the production. It’s a first of its kind, with big shots doing it on a commercial level and I’m really looking forward to how the public will receive this,” DJ KBoz told unwrap.online.
Fans of the trio quickly started to run amok under DJ KBoz’s post, congratulating, and some even predicting that it will be a great album. After converting to Christianity in 2009, Qonja decided to change his name to Samuel M’yamba and released two albums under that alias. A fan asked if the album will have the old Qonja back, and DJ KBoz replied by saying that the Old Qonja is back “We had a very long discussion on it. We are good,” he said.
Another kwaito artist and winner of X-Factor Germany 2018 Ees also jumped into the comment section and wrote: “Tell them I am waiting for that feature chorus or verse on that album, both owe me,” It is a fact that Qonja inspired, then Exit and Mushe when they were up and coming and now they have a chance to work together.
In a Twitter post from October 2020, Exit mentioned Qonja writing, “Take some Qonja and some Gazza, mix up in a pot. Sprinkle a little bit of Exit and Dogg what the f*** have you got? You’ve got the realest and biggest Kwaito niggas on the block”.
Other mega producers that are currently working on the album as well include Mr. Glo, Andrew on the beat, Chris Wayne and Timo Kevin.
