PRINCELOU Faragama a 19-year-old rapper from Windhoek has gone one up from being an ordinary young man to signing with a relatively new record label, Blvc Boxx Entertainment. Blvc Boxx Entertainment is home to some of Namibia’s biggest acts including Tesh, Top Cheri, Athawise, King Elegant and Saddam. Princelou is the youngest on the label and according to him he left a formal education to pursue his dream of becoming a household name in the entertainment industry. “It is a blessing to be part of a music family that recognises potential in me, because I could not imagine being signed to anywhere else,” he said. Princelou currently has three EP’s (Extended Play), which form part of his music catalogue. These are all available on SoundCloud, AudioMack, datafilehost.com and donluAfrica.com. He says that the music he makes is predominately off the hip hop genre, specifically the trap sound, which is a sub-genre of hip hop. “I am inspired by many local artists that include The Dogg and Gazza, because they have not taken a day off and fully committed their time and money to music, instead of it just being a hobby,” he said. This year Princelou is set to release a collaboration mix tape with the members of the Blvc Boxx Entertainment titled The Boxx Tape. He says that his parents played an integral part in shaping his young career as they too were musicians in the past. Princelou is a self-proclaimed style influencer and is also a model under the Ubuntu Modelling Agency.
