Onghalamwenyo proves that the grass isn’t all green on the other side!
There are so many things said about the Ghetto or the hood that are aimed at brainwashing us to thinking that it’s all about danger and pain and the picture painted of the suburbs is all green and bright. Well, this isn’t the case according to artists Disco and Shitana who put it out in a song that we had it all wrong this time and its quite the opposite.
In a song titled Onghalamwenyo which when loosely translated means like in Oshiwambo the two aim to motivate people to work hard and to stop comparing lifestyles or wishing for other peoples lives. The chorus starts off the song with the lyrics that say in life, one shouldn’t worry if you live in a ghetto because people there have coffee in the morning and they have food in their fridge.
Disco who released his first body of work in 2017 says that it is all about the mindset that one has and how far they are willing to go to reach their goals.
“The song is all about life, we are actually trying to motivate people to work hard, to stop thinking that staying in a ghetto is a poor life, most people that are staying in ghettos are living a good life with zero debts, you don’t need to be afraid of people owning luxury kinds of stuff and start hating your life, no maybe that should be advantage of you to work hard to be that specific somebody too,” he said.
“I am up for a collaboration all I want is to sing and let the music pop out there,” he said.
The song is currently available on Namtunes as well as YouTube and it is doing well in terms of numbers and views. Disco whose only wish is to make music is willing to collaborate with artists young and old and new or old in the industry.
