O.COM serving Dhemba flavored music

Making music that is culturally enriched.

We love it when artists embrace their cultures and use them as a point of inspiration! There is just something that makes the song spicy and sweeter to the ear when the vernacular pops. This is what you will hear when you listen to O.COM. Hailing from Opuwo and Ruacana the duo is just that thing that was missing in the industry for a while.

The group made up of Junoxz and Wizzen specializes in Afropop, dancehall and sometimes, they also sing hybrid genres like Afro-trance and Afro club. O.COM have one mission only which is to promote African culture and languages through their music. They are inspired by the Dhemba tradition especially music which they put a twist to modernise it.

This is all visible in their hit track Nana featuring Top Cheri and Daka from the lyrics to the costumes used. The multilingual song sees the artists sing in Oshiwambo, English, and Dhemba about a girl who shouldn’t trip when approached.

“Nana is derived from the term inoli nana which loosely translates to don’t trip. It’s a fun song to dance to and it’s just a vibe,” they said.

The group has two albums to their name including their last album Kings of Kulture which has tracks like Himba Girl and Nana. O.COM believe that their music can take the lead in making Oludhimba music trend across Namibia and Africa overall.

“We love music and our goal is to blend our culture with Afro-pop and create a new trend of Afro. The lyrics to our songs are in Oludhimba, which is a language in northern Nambia. The ovadhimba people are a Bantu group similar to the Ovaherero and Owambo people that live mainly in the areas surrounding and within Ruacana and Opuwo. Our language has close proximity with Otjiherero and that is why we classify our lyrics as Herero. We believe that music is a universal language and we will continue preaching it,” they said.
