People must listen to my upcoming album or these two singles and what the first album did to me. On this album, I am more mature, I have gone diverse and I have stepped up," says Linda.
She adds that her album would be a bomb with mixture of international tastes and genres. "I can say, my last album was just a reflection to the new album. It has given me a name, recognition and the experience to do my thing.
But on this upcoming album, I have taken a different step, it's going to be not necessary that of Namibia, but I have to be fair, it features international artists and it sounds more like African," Linda explains.
