Namibia: Froritha Makes Music From the Heart

Windhoek — The Rhythm and Beats (RnB) singer, Froritha, made a name of her self when she recently launched her debut ten (10)tracks album title, I owe it all to you in December last year at the Playhouse Theatre respectively.

Real name Christina Fleermuys was born and raised in a small town of Gibeon in the southern part of the country. She completed her matrix school in Gibeon, before moving to Windhoek early last year.

She discovered her singing talent at a young age of eight years. Froritha said that, it all came from her primary school teacher who always asks them to sing in a classroom.

"At that time, my voice was so touching, attractive and charming and make my entire class mate to start crying, since I sings more about life issues, love and woman empowering.

I realized that I can make a life out of singing. I start to sing on birthday parties and weddings. After that, my talent was recognized by many and it gave me big motives in life to start taking music seriously," she says.

She adds that, last year, is when she started to take music professionally. "Since I always love singing, my passion for composing a song was driving me crazy. I went and approached Deal Done Record (DDR), one of the big well known music production in town.

I met up with the owner of DDR, Djodick Dragan of Antonio's Art. I told him about my story that I wanted to sing and how professional I was. He called for audition and I came out as a best female artist and signed me to his production,"

"When I got an opportunity, I grab it with all my heart. I then start living in my dreams as an artist. Recording my first songs was not that easy, but I manage to do it out of faith, hope and Charity," Froritha explained.

In her debut album, the talk of town Froritha has dedicated a song to her mom and dad, which is also the title of the album; I owe it all to you. Froritha says that the song is just to give appreciations to her parents since they have been there for her since the beginning.

"I am who I am today because of my parents, without them I couldn't be here. I owe everything to them, and for them to know it, is to put it in a song for everybody to listen to it," she says.

Her expectation in the music industry is to bring back the vibes of RnB, Kizomba and all sorts of love songs back to people's heart, seeing it as under appreciated in Namibia. "I want to relate to peoples feelings by bringing back that singing style, and all my songs are in that tone," she says.

Her first video, I miss you is currently out in local televisions. Other hit songs you can find in the album are such as Mr Dam good lie and Don't love me.

Froritha who is now happy with his album told ARTLIFE that, she is now facing the only challenge of people who are trying to put her down.

"In life, there will be people for you and people that are against you and your work. To me I take this a positive matter which make me stronger," says Froritha.

The album is now on the market all over the country.
