Maszanga completes Orwetoveni album in lockdown

By Julia Heita and Eutima Nakangombe 

It’s their fourth album since coming in the game over 8 years and thanks to lockdown, you will be hearing it sooner than you think!

Namibia like all countries across the globe had gone into a lockdown with restrictions that had a lot of negative impacts on many industries with the arts and culture not being an exception. This however led many creatives to dig deep into their creative tanks to survive for the past few months and those to come. Renowned musical group Maszanga took this opportunity to work on their soon to be released album. 

Once a popular group that rocked the boat in the music scene, the group is still trying to figure out what caused them and left them in the abyss.

A member of the group Bronson Reja Tjihukununa  said that the pandemic has been a blessing in disguise to them, it has pushed them into the studio to finalise their upcoming album  since they  have been putting in a lot of hours of late. The group has been in the industry over eight years ago and have given their fans hit after hit, including Nale and Money. Their latest work includes features with TKB Hakusembe as well as Dice that is yet to be released.

“As alluded supra we are working on finalising our fourth offering which we promise to be one of our best work to date, the album will be called Orwetoveni (it means “ours” in vernacular Otjiherero), which is a kasi and name of the primary school where we both met an odd 20 plus years ago,” said Bronson Reja Tjihukununa. 

Despite a rocky hurdle with labels and management, Maszanga have picked up even though slowly where they were left and continue to do the great work they are known for.
