NAMIBIAN award winners and artists King Tee Dee (formerly known as The Dogg) and Sally Boss Madam have been nominated for best male and female artists in southern Africa in the African Muzik Magazine Awards (Afrimma) scheduled for next month.
King Tee Dee is running against hip-hop music giants Casper Nyovest of South Africa, Jah Prayzah of Zimbabwe and Slap Dee from Zambia. As for Sally, she is competing against Lady Du, a South African amapiano artist and deejay, as well as Zimbabwean RnB musician Shashl.
King Tee Dee, who recently embarked on a journey as an entrepreneur, said the nomination means a lot to him since he has not been busy with many projects and music shows.
"It means a lot that my work is still being recognised. the competition is tough, there are a lot of great artists on that list but win or lose I represent Namibia. Also, because I did not enter and I was chosen out of all Namibian artists means a lot. I just hope Namibians vote in their numbers so that I bring the award back home," he said.
He added that while Namibia has a small population, which may be a hurdle when it comes to voting, there is still a good chance of winning.
In 2013, he won a Kora award in the best southern African male category.
Meanwhile, Sally Boss Madam, an Afro-fusion singer and performer, shot to fame after the release of her single 'Boss Madam', which earned her an award in the Namibian Annual Music Awards.
Sally is not new to the Afrimma awards, as she scooped the best female artist in southern Africa award in 2016, and has been nominated twice for these awards.
During her career, she has released several albums, including 16-track 'Courage' in 2012, 'I am Mukwanekamba in 2017 as well as 'My Black'. -unWrap.online
