Jackson Wahengo takes Oshitufi to the hood

It’s hard to grasp the fact that Jackson Wahengo had last dropped an album five years ago but is still killing it when it comes to delivering music. One of the lastest projects he has worked on, Oshitufi gives us affirmation on the fact that the man simply knows his work
An effortless, clear and simple vision turned into a Tura party.

That is one way to describe the latest offering by hitmaker Jackson Wahengo featuring Adora and Beate Baumgartner. unwrap.online speaks to Jackson Wahengo on Oshitufi and shares fun facts about how the song and visuals came to life.

Oshitufi when loosely translated to Oshiwambo is a song that is about having a good time or a party. Wahengo says to unwrap.online that as usual, he came up with a melody on his guitar.
“As soon as I had an idea of what I wanted to talk about, the concept became easy, Mandume is my childhood friend, so I decided that a party is taking place at his house and that everybody is welcome,” he said.

The song and music video feature Adora and Beate Baumgartner who emulate the Tura livelihood in the music video scenes from eating Kapana as well as playing Snoek. Wahengo says he brought the ladies on board because of their different creativity and diversity.

The video took four memorable hours to shoot in Katutura, showing the viewers areas that are barely given recognition.

“I really will probably leave that to viewers’ imagination, however, our idea was just to have a video of people having a good time,” says Wahengo on what the video symbolises.
