WINDHOEK – The Namibian award winning singer, TeQuila, has returned to the local music scene – with a bang.
The two time Namibian Annual Music Award winner told The Southern Times, that she has joined Gazza Music Productions (GMP) in recent months.
Born Tekla Iita, the “Marry Me” hit-maker said her career is set to be revived by GMP’s clever marketing.
“It’s an opportunity for me to work with a great team. GMP has everything that builds me to be the artiste that I always aspired to be. I thank Gazza and the team for believing in me and my talent. I’m honoured and blessed to be part of the team,” said TeQuila.
“The opportunities offered by GMP are endless and the goal is to make sure the audience everywhere hear the music. I’m sure they will do enough to ensure that is achieved. When it comes to the album, Gazza’s ‘Pumumu’ album serves as the foundation to GMP and UMG’s (Universal Music Group) marketing strategy, so I believe we will be utilising the same platforms,” she said.
TeQuila’s latest work includes recent collaboration DJ Shoza titled ‘Lombwelange’ an Oshiwambo language term meaning ‘tell me. TeQuila is full of praises for DJ Shoza’s music insight.
“DJ Shoza is one awesome and talented guy. I learn a lot from him constantly and it was a pleasure working with him on ‘Lombwelange’. Every time we work on a project I give myself completely and let him drive and I love the outcome! Working with him is always a new experience and great motivation for me and I’m all for that vibe in the studio,” a jovial TeQuila said.
The Namibian song-bird known for her golden voice said she has been busy in the studio lately working on her upcoming studio album and that she is hard at work perfecting it before it can be released.
