Namibian singer-songwriter Teqla has been making waves in the music industry for years. Her latest single, ‘Djulukwa,’ is a deeply personal song that she wrote in memory of her late father.
In a recent interview, Teqla shared details about her new single, upcoming album, and her thoughts on the music industry.
“Writing ‘Djulukwa’ was a cathartic experience for me. I had so many emotions that I needed to express, and music was the best way for me to do that,” Teqla said.
Eventually, she took her friend’s advice and wrote about how much she missed her father and what haunted her the most after his passing, which were her last words to him.
The song was produced by her dear friend, Araffat, who recently passed away. As a tribute to her friend, Teqla decided to release ‘Djulukwa’ as her first single.
“My new album is a musical journey that reflects my growth as an artist. I had the opportunity to collaborate with so many talented musicians, and I’m excited for my fans to hear it.” She added
Teqla’s new album is set to be released in a few months, but she plans to release a few more singles before its release.
The album is already done and mastered by GLO, and Teqla has worked with more artists on this album than any other she has released.
The album promises to be a musical journey that will showcase Teqla’s musical versatility and creativity. Over the past few years, Teqla has been featuring on her fellow artists’ songs, but she hasn’t been releasing any of her own work.
She struggled with finding the right team and support, but now she is back and ready to share her new music with the world.
“I’m grateful for the support of my fans over the years. It’s been a tough journey, but their encouragement has helped me keep going and pursue my passion for music.
“When asked about her thoughts on the local music industry, Teqla acknowledged that the industry has changed significantly over the years. There are now more players, different genres, and markets to explore. Teqla is excited to be back and to discover all the new opportunities that the music industry has to offer.
“The local music industry is constantly evolving, and it’s exciting to see new players and different genres emerging. As an artist, I’m always looking for new opportunities to explore and express my creativity,” she said.
With ‘Djulukwa’ as a powerful first single, her upcoming album promises to be a celebration of Teqla’s artistry and legacy in the Namibian music scene.
“I hope my music can be a source of comfort and inspiration to those who listen to it. Music has the power to bring people together, and that’s what I strive to do with my art.”
