Multi-award winning artist Martha Namundjebo, popularly known as Lady May Africa, is
aiming to take Namibian music worldwide with her record label Crystal Lady May Records
Established in 2018, the company aims to showcase exceptional music talent in Africa.
According to her, ensuring that artists signed under CLM-R are represented in the best
possible way as well as making their work available to the local, continental and global
market is one of the company’s main roles.
“My team and I felt the need to create a company that can make a difference and bring
something special and unique to the industry,” said Lady May Africa.
Currently, Lady May Africa is the only artist signed under CLM-R. However, the company is
looking to sign more artists in the future.
“We want the next artists that will be signed under CLM-R to fully feel like they have made
the right decision in signing with CLM-R.”
“All artists that will sign with CLM-R will sign an agreement but before they sign we will
fully make sure that they understand what they are signing and both parties are happy,” she added.
The “Zoom Zoom” hit-maker has transitioned to gospel and inspiration music in recent times. According to her, the experience has been great.
“I love the new path that I have chosen. God is good! All glory belongs to God. Staying
focused and never giving up is the key, believing in your brand is very important.”
“People will believe in you the way you believe in yourself,” said Lady May Africa.
She further said that the Namibian music industry has grown in leaps and bounds since she first become a part of it.
“When I first started, I always knew that I would become a huge star, simply because that is what I set my mind to at the time. Right now, what I care about most is allowing God to fully use me for his glory.”
“God’s opinion is the only opinion that matters to me. The entertainment industry is a very
fun industry to be in but it’s more fun when you fully understand the business side of it,” she said.
For 2022, Lady May Africa and her team are working on several projects. Although she was
tight-lipped about the ventures, she urged fans to keep their eye on all Lady May Africa
social media platforms as announcements related to these projects and other important
information will be made available there.
Apart from being one of Namibia’s longest serving artists with seven albums under her belt since her debut album titled Kamali, Lady May Africa is also one of the most decorated and recognisable music figures in the country.
She has won numerous local and international awards including the Sanlam-NBC Music
Awards, MTC-NBC Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) and the Channel O Music
