Namibian singer-songwriter Harry Mutambo Junior Tjipueja, well-known as Waters, is set to perform at the Lesotho Music Awards later this year, where he aims to showcase Namibian music and culture.

Waters is the first Namibian artist to perform at the prestigious music awards, something he describes as a privilege and significant milestone.

In an interview this week, the R&B crooner says he hopes to nurture a greater appreciation for Namibian music.

“It’s an opportunity for me to showcase Namibian music and culture internationally, so that there is a greater appreciation and understanding for it. This experience not only adds to my CV, it also reflects the richness and diversity of young Namibian talent on a global stage.”

Regarding how he manages to attract an international audience, Waters credits a solid team around him to help expand his reach as an artist, as well as consistently creating good music.

He notes that collaboration, networking and understanding broader and diverse audience preferences is also key.

“It’s also about building relationships and staying true to your unique sound, while also adapting to new trends and cultures.”

Aiming to stun the crowd in Lesotho, Waters plans to perform a mix of songs, including some tracks in his native Otjiherero language, alongside new music.

“Having a band will allow me to showcase my vocal range and bring my dynamic energy to the stage. I would love to create an unforgettable experience for the audience as one of Namibia’s musical ambassadors,” Waters said.

He is currently working on an exciting collaboration with international artist Bobby Shmurda and other artists, with the focus being to work with more Namibian and African artists.

On what makes his music both unique and timeless, he touts his willingness to embrace constructive criticism and constantly striving to improve to keeping his art distinctive. – unwraponline
