Nga-I’s return and what it means for the Namibian rap and OviTrap genres.
He is undoubtedly one of Namibia’s most lyrically talented we have in the game. Last year, the renowned OviTrap chief Nga-I and Do It For Nation album maker took to his social media to announce his retirement from the game without giving us much reason and left many and most especially his fans rather upset.
Late last week, the Kurama singer once again took to his social media where he let his followers know that he will be making a huge announcement which he made at the launch of Don Kamati and Chris Wayne’s Moto single launch at Kalahari Jazz Cafe.
Speaking to unwrap. online, Nga-I said that it was due to responsibilities that he left. The rapper also said that there are musicians he had inspired that still needed him and that it would be unfair to leave it all.
” I realised I can’t be away. I couldn’t be selfish with it. The same reason I left is why I am now back. There is no way I can be away. I love it so much. I found myself not having a medium to express my self and the obstacles I had became even more, ” he said.
Asked if it is the same old Nga-I that we will be hearing from the new him, the artist says there is a lot of new features and sounds in store for his fans to watch out for!
” It is going to be a defined new sound. I’m coming back with a certain feel. It is all from the Gods and ancestors. It will be trap of course. OviTrap is a Namibian sound and that’s what I am giving. It was not my will. It was spoken into to me, ” he said.
Nga-I will be coming back with a mixtape that will drop on his 25th birthday this month on the 21st.
“These are mixtapes that will lead up to the album I will be dropping at the end of the year called Herero Music. We will also be launching OviTrap Music the record label and our first artist is the only feature. He will be revealed soon and it is really exciting to give out, ” he said.
