Melvin Haoseb is changing the way the Namibian music industry is viewed daily.
They say that charity begins at home and what better way is there to do it than to put your very own artists on the map like using the most addictive thing at your disposal like WhatsApp to boast and update the nation on the latest and current music being dropped by our local artist.
Known for his passion for the Namibian music industry at large Melvin Hoaseb is Namibia’s biggest self-made Namibian music promoter.
With over 25 WhatsApp groups that get up 700 views on a daily basis as well as his Melvin the Music Promoter page and facebook personal account as Melvin Hoaseb, he is definitely doing the most on updating the Namibian people on what and who is dropping an album or single when the need arises.
“I started promoting the Namibian music industry since 2014 and have 25 groups altogether, I created my first group that year and more people got interested in joining so along the years I created more groups which I run by myself because I have do’s and don’ts rules for instance, I don’t allow full albums to be dropped in the groups without the permission of the artists themselves” Hoaseb said.
Hoaseb has invited almost every local artist on his groups to share their latest songs and get a chance to be heard by their fans locally and charges a small fee of about N$ 300, these big names that came to the groups and got opportunity include the likes of Mushe, KK, Kbozz, Sally, Sunny boy, Adora, Blossom, Promise, Sammy lee Jones and so on.
“Recognition by the media is not something I want or get every day but hopefully someday my tinny efforts will be recognised” he added.
