Lucid Meno on putting in the work and how it pays off.
There is are a lot of unnoticed talents in Namibian small towns and this is due to many reasons. A rapper from Ondangwa is one who is not going to let that fact stop him from practising his arts.
Having inspired to join the forever growing music industry by his late uncle, Lucid Meno lets out that he wants to change the status quo and help the world become a better place, with music.
“Music fills the void it feeds my soul It makes me feel like part of something bigger than me and it makes me happy I know he’s watching and again it’s always been my passion, ” he says.
The Ndili moVibe singer says he opted for rap because it is all about discipline.
” Rap is a way of life a culture I love rap not only because it has no boundaries you can express anything in rap and still be accepted in the rap community my music stands out simply because of its high energy I mean I don’t want to make boring music gotta stay on the wave and the fact that it’s rap no one is really doing rap like the way I’m doing rap in ondangwa. My music is real it has real vibes real messages real flows and all I think people feel it because they can tell I’m not trying too hard, ” he says.
Speaking on opportunities or lack of arts in Ondangwa, Lucid Meno says the town is yet to the accept responsibility of catering for its talents.
” Honestly in ondangwa the opportunities are few.
I feel like ondangwa still didn’t accept music as a thing yet like other towns in Namibia. I’m pushing so hard to get people hooked on this genre but the young generation. Growing my brand is hard but I know the opportunities will come, ” he concludes.
