Ovitrap pioneer and Hip Hop artist Ngaihape Mupurua known to many as Nga-I caught his fans by surprise when he released a snippet of his new single titled ‘Kutja Movanga’.
According to Nga-i his latest offer is a fusion of Oviritje and Funk music. He added that the song was inspired by American musician Bruno Mars and his love for Funk music.
“The beat is produced by Dannyebtracks a Mexican multiplatinum music producer based in the United States while it was recorded, mixed and mastered by Reezzy a Namibian producer.
My next project is loading , thats all I can say, but for now im focused on pushing this new sound and single as far as possible”, Nga-I said.
2022 was groundbreaking for the Nga-I brand. He revolutionized music distribution with his “peri-peri sauce” venture where he used the sauce packaging as a way for fans and consumers to download free music simply by scanning the code on each hot sauce bottles.
“It felt like i was being slept on until I found out that “Nga-I’s Hot Peri Peri Sauce” business model was used as a case study for the Concordia High School Business Studies Final Exam paper! Thats when i knew we had achieved monumental success,” Nga-i added.
He also said that it is undeniable that since Ihe dropped his hit song ‘Kurama’ almost 5 years ago the hip hop industry has not had anything fresh.”Everyone to come after simply followed and used the formula I and my team had created , some went on to achieve great things.
Unfortunately theres been nothing new and nothing that really moves the hearts and represents the hiphop/jazz culture. Hip Hop is dying and once again its Nga-I to the rescue,” Nga-i said.
He adds that this new single will be the begining of a new era of Namibian music and most importantly of African Vernacular music.”Its scary when trying something new, going into untested waters.
Therefore I’d like to send a sincere appreciation to all the positive feedback I’ve gotten since dropping the snippet online,” he ended.
