GAZZA Music Production will be unveiling its 11th album on the Saturday, December 3 in Windhoek, and this event will host the showcasing of GMP artists and other top artists from the local scene and abroad.
Speaking to Confidente GMP founder Lazarus Shiimi well known as Gazza said he decided to name his upcoming eleventh album Pumumu because it is a nickname that he has had for a long time. Pumumu is the name of a bird that is associated with exciting happenings in Oshiwambo culture.
He also said he titled his upcoming album Pumumu because he believes this name comes with many other exciting things. Gazza further added that his fans are what give strength to the name Pumumu, adding that the album will give GMP an opportunity to distribute and showcase their music to the world through a universal sound.
“With this album we want to be good and show to the world that we want to be better whilst competing and forming lasting relationships with artists all over the world”
He further added that his dream is to get the name Namibia known worldwide as other artists have done with their countries; hence he is now busy with the current hashtag #Pumumuforgold.
Pumumu is a 24-track album, which Gazza describes as a double album. In Pumumu Gazza said he gained 70 percent artistic freedom in the sense that he is trying to be true to himself and at the same time tracking a balance in his music by making it appeal to locals, Africa and the world at large.
The album will be available on the market on December 28, and Gazza said in this album he has given his best. He further said that at the moment he is creating a blueprint for upcoming artists who wish to follow in his path.
Speaking on the album lyrical content, he said he tried to be sensitive towards the young listeners and he tried to strike a balance between the streets where he came from and not ignore his responsibility as well, but because of the artistic freedom in the album he ignored the fear of being judged musically or artistically.
He further confirmed that GMP will be hosting shows across the country to promote the new album.
“When we say one has paid N$50 for our shows, he/she will always get the value of the amount he/she paid for. It is better we over deliver than under deliver when it comes to our shows. We are always aiming for creativity and relevance in terms of our appearance, choreography and in all sorts of our musical work,” concluded Gazza.
