Home Music Manxebe?


By Pricilla Mukokobi

Who is Manxebe?
That is a question many are asking about Namibia’s bolt of energy who has somewhat taken over the Kwaito scene in the past few months.

He has enough energy to ignite interest even from those who do not like his trade.

For a man who was a non-entity in the music scene not so long ago the 21 years old from Uunkete village has done so well for himself riding on his match with Top Cheri.

Of course, Top Cheri is another bold of lightning but their combination with Manxebe, a relatively new kid on the block is a match made in heaven and could be something to watch for the future if their purple patch is anything to buy.

“I am 21 years and I am chasing my dream”, Manxebe said.

The young musician has given the Namibian music industry a new lease of life, one that is made up of zeal, zest and passion for his exploits.

“My energy is natural, I don’t need to be high for me to have all that energy. All I need is music for me to be high,” he said.

For those that might have other thoughts about his energetic performances, Manxebe said he just doesn’t know how to stop his excitement when on stage and is merely driven by the desire to please his growing fan base.

” Basically it comes when I’m in action especially when I’m performing, making videos or recording in the studio,” he said.

Despite being deeply rooted in his village Uunkete, Manxebe said his hometown is Ondangwa in Northern Namibia.

“No one inspired me. I have more than 20 songs, and I am working on an album, ‘” he said.

So for a man who is not inspired by anyone and is still finding his own in the jungles of Namibian music what is his drive?

“My music is to encourage people to not have fear in whatever you are planning to do, just believe in yourself,” he said.
