Imali, another hit to uniting African artists

Afro-pop Mozambican artist based in Namibia is all about the drive to a united African creative industry. E Gazakoff with hit songs to his name including ‘Break It’, says the power for Africa to rise in the entertainment sphere lies within the artists by being more open to working together when creating content. It is for this reason the singer went out of his way to feature Namibia’s award-winning artists Sunny Boy and King Tee Dee on his track Imali. 

According to the singer, the Namibian and Mozambican music industries, as well as many southern African countries, are more similar than they know and such tools can be used to rise together. 

“We have different cultures, languages and ways of singing and the fact that we sing in our native languages makes the industry special. I want to motivate Mozambican artists to collaborate with Namibian artists. We can show the rest of the world that SADC musicians are united,” he says. 

As an afro-fusion singer, E Gazakoff brings different cultures together. Speaking on his song Imali, he says he looks forward to featuring more Namibian artists to make great music as such.

 “I specifically featured King Tee Dee and Sunny Boy in the song because I needed Kwaito house feel in the Song and the local vibe that can relate locally and culturally. I really admire their way of composing and singing. They are really talented and creative,” he said.
