Live Show: Sunny Boy To Bring The Heat!

Sunny Boy grew up dreaming of making music that touched people’s hearts. Four albums later, the darling of the Namibian rap scene has been making it happen now for nearly a decade. This Sunday, the talented musician is set to make it happen on the Big Brother Live Eviction Stage.

His fusion of sounds from genres like Kwaito and Hip Hop led to the creation of his own unique ‘Hikwa Style’ – a mix of tight Kwaito beats with a Hip Hop flow. With hits like Balance, Serious, Summertime and Heat It Up, Sunny Boy has established himself as a serious player on the continental rap scene.

The Namibian rising star has won a host of awards, including an NBC Music Award and Namibia Music Awards and lent his fame to greater causes, like the Namibia Red Cross Society and Special Olympics Namibia.

His voice pattern, flow and rhyme delivery is compared to that of Nas who is highly praised as one of Hip Hop's greatest poets. He also mentions South African kwaito artists, Brickz and Brown Dash as his influences.

Africa, if you didn’t know before what this man is about, prepare to be blown away.
