After more than two decades in the entertainment industry, Gazza has just released another single, titled ‘Checka’.
The track has already garnered over 50 000 views on YouTube.
Speaking to unWrap.online last week, the ‘Brandewyn’ hitmaker said the song is meant to be a feel-good anthem with a strong reference to fashion.
It will boost the confidence of anybody who listens to it, Gazza says.
“The song is about fashion. We all know when you look good, you feel good, and you can go about your day and achieve the objectives you have set out for the day.
“If you do that more often, you will end up achieving even more. It’s also about winning, for example, if you are studying and you acquired your degree or your master’s, or you just bought a new car or house.
“So it’s basically just a song to boost the morale of poor people. My music is really designed for them not to be left behind, and to always have something to look forward to in life,” he says.
Gazza says people should celebrate their achievements – no matter how small.
“If you have a reason to celebrate, then this is the song for you,” he says.
Gazza says the title of his upcoming album is ‘Legacy’.
The album will be released towards the end of November, he says.
“The album is designed to make people happy and forget about their problems. But before its release, there are still a few projects that will be dropping, including an album by GMP artists Black Sheep and BeeJay, and a project with musician Ras Petu,” he says.
Gazza was appointed goodwill ambassador for education in 2006, and his latest outreach programmes and projects have seen him travel to some of the remote parts of the country to perform.
“I have been doing outreach work since 2006, and I do this out of my own free will, and I’m not getting paid. It has really taught me a lot and brought me closer to my people, especially with the work I have been doing first with the Office of the Prime Minister and then the Office of the President, which was a back-to-school campaign for marginalised communities around the country,” he says.
“I have travelled to different places where these people stay and I have seen their challenges. I feel I’m in a position to source sponsorships for my audience.
“At Opuwo we gave some of the people stalls for free to sell their goods at the concert,” he says.
Gazza says he will continue using his status to try and better the lives of poor people.
“I’m grateful to all Namibians and Gazza fans all around the world, because they basically gave me the status I have today which I can use to make a difference,” he says. – unWrap.online
