Samlee on Afro-pop and traditional music fusion

By Pricilla Mukokobi

Culture is dynamic as it keeps on changing. However, there are upcoming artists who are willing to keep it alive in the form of creative arts. Samuka Pendy Samuka, AKA Samlee the cool cat from Tilipatye cultural group, is of the belief that traditional music is important for generations as it builds culture and recognizes people’s origins.

“My main focus on traditional music is to build my culture so that it lives for generations and give recognition of where I come from. I work with my group Tilipatye,” said the solo artist.

Being inspired by the late Michael Jackson, the young talent who started music at a tender age of 10 says despite obstacles in the music industry,  he won’t give up so early on his efforts to make a name for himself as well as to keep the culture alive through his skills. 

“I love the fact that I have the best of both worlds and how I am able to tell my stories through these genres for everyone to relate to. The trick is to keep moving forward until the end of time. My goal is to make sure that my music reaches the whole of Namibia,” he said.
