Skipper Wills claims northern rap supremacy

Naudili Stefanus H

Rap in northern Namibia has been one of the music genres that hasn’t received much attention however, Skipper Wills has come to the rescue.

Skipper Wills has been doing music ever since his high school years, where he claims to have been a high school superstar. Judging from the number of views he has claimed on his youtube channel, it is hard to not believe him.

According to the rapper, he grew up listening to rap music fed to him by his uncle. Acceptably he eventually started doing poetry in 2016, before he turned to singing.

The musician presents his rap style in a locally contemporary manner, rapping in an Oshiwambo dialect, Oshingandjera.

“I do not make music for my creativity and witty presentation to be appreciated, but also for that one little kid who looks in the mirror and raps to my songs in relation to their content, just to give him hope and a reason to wake up every-day and try to take life forward,” he said.

This is visible in two of his songs titled Maybe Then and Conversations with My Baby Sister, which talks about depression and more.

Further, Skipper Wills says he is formidable because he raps to motivate and empathize.

“The best way to get your art appreciated is by giving a hear and feel sound, ” he said.

I am confident in the future of Namibian rap because a lot of youngsters are coming up and they are really testing the limits of rap in Namibia by mixing different sounds like Afro-pop into the art, so it is becoming quite interesting and drawing an audience to this genre,” Skipper concluded.
