061 Clothing by Catty Catt

No one made us shout “Windhoek stand up” way more than the late rapper Catty Catt. 061 clothing was one of the most prolific hip-hop brands of Namibia. People were proud to wear an 061 brand even if they were not from Windhoek, you just had to own it. All the cool kids in Windhoek wore 061 shirts.
