Ace is back with a new banger, a new name and a new direction to his talents. Going by the name Makufikufi, the rapper says he will be embarking on a new journey that will see him embrace his roots and take on Oshiwambo is his content going forth.
Makufikufi whose real name is Henock Ndeshilile says his latest track Telele produced by Devitchi is an example of what music enthusiasts can expect.
The rapper who rose to prominence in 2009, revealed that he believes “Telele,” which translates to “Dizzy,” is the best hip hop song right now and that he aspires to rap in his home tongue, “Oshiwambo.”
“I really hope people appreciate it since I see a scarcity of original vamboe sounds because artists use the most washed-out terms. And I assure you, Makufikufi is the next artist who will bring back all those vamboe terms that people have forgotten or thought never existed,” he said.
When asked why he changed his stage name from Ace to Makufikufi, which means ‘waves’ the ‘Komona’ hitmaker, said his fans were encountering problems with search engines when entering his previous stage name ‘Ace’.
“A close buddy has been complaining about how difficult it is to obtain my music on the internet because the name Ace is used by so many people. Makufikufi has been a name that I had for a long time and I tried to make it official but couldn’t, until now,” the musician explained.
