The story behind Sofia

From beat auctions to the song being leaked and finally being made available.

Award-winning duo Cool Under Pressure aka C.U.P has finally released their hit single Sofia. The song which has been well received by the public, however, comes with an interesting history and C.U.P have compiled a video detailing how they got the beat, the studio moments and how the song got leaked.

According to C.U.P’s Dalmau ‘Ice’ Hamaambo and William ‘Willy-G’ Shilamba the beat to the song Sofia was bought at beat auction, (a platform to promote producers) for N$ 10 000 in 2015, with the bid starting off at N$ 600 and the bidders being Ice and Hilifa.
The duo also spoke about how they came to choosing the particular beat which today is the foundation of the song Sofia.

“We had to buy the beat because it was the perfect house song. It had people on their feet, people were going crazy and the reaction was great,” they said.

The Panga Man artists also confessed on how hard being in the studio was the pressure to make a good song with the beat.
“The recording session was the hardest because what do you say on an N$ 10 000 song, you know. But we persevered and the song stands for Namibian women with all the ills happening it’s important to appreciate them,” they said.

Late last year, the song got leaked and the duo says it didn’t go so far because of the quality of it then. The song is currently available on online platforms including Donlu Africa and Itunes just to mention a few. The duo says they will release an album this year.

“We will have a competition around Sofia and all information will be available on online platforms. Our album is 70% ready. Support the movement because it’s for you and it’s authentic and Namibian,” they concluded.
