• By Martha Nangombe
MUSIC producer and songwriter, Joram Linus who is well known by his stage name, Jsong has dropped a 10 tracked album titled ‘The village champion” that is set to keep music fanatics on their toes.
Linus who primarily does afro pop music infused with a bit of house said his album had been gaining a lot of traction from the community where is had received good feedbacks from his listeners.
“There is a greater meaning behind ‘The village champion.’ The reason why I gave my album such name is because I grew up in the village and I know a lot about village life. I know a lot about my culture, cultural norms, mores and values. This album is a culmination of years of practice and hard work,” Linus said.
The songwriter who is currently unemployed has obtained an honours degree in Accounting from the University of Namibia (Unam) collaborated with Neslow, Betholdt and Ann Singer on the album.
“I am loking forward to collaborating with more local artists in my future endevours. I was born in Okakarara but I grew up in the northern part of Namibia in the village called Omakango in Ohangwena region. I was raised by my grandmother after the demise of my parents when I was 8 year-old. I practically started doing music when I went to university.
“My love for music started after I became a disk-joker in my first and second year of university and from there, I started messing around with beats and stated learning how to perfect my art. After I obtained my degree, I started honing my musical skills in hopes of becoming one of the best musical talents in the industry,” Linus further added.
Jsong’s music can be found on a number of streaming platforms.
