Spotlight on The Dogg
Namibia’s The Dogg got his first taste of the music industry as a backup artist and a dancer and soon began opening shows for his famous cousin Killa B and well known friend Jossy Joss. The Dogg rose to fame following the release of his hit single “Jesus Otati” in 2003. He later signed a record deal with RC-Ghetto Records which released Dogg’s debut album Shimaliw’ Osatana in 2004. The latter was a success earning him awards for Artist of the year and Best-selling Artist in 2004 at the Sanlam-NBC Music Awards. Dogg’s second album, Take Out Yo Gun unleashed a stream of radio hits including “Ngenge Ndasi”.
Other releases from the multi-talent (he also produces for other artists) include Introducing TeeDee, and Mshasho: You Can’t Ignore – which is also the slogan of The Dogg’s company. In April 2009 he released the long-awaited album This is my Time. He is the sole owner of the company Mshasho, which owns a record label named Mshasho Productions, one of the most popular and successful music labels in Namibia, a clothing fashion line known as Mshasho Clothing, and various other businesses including Mshasho Film Inc. and Mshasho Events. The seasoned musician and businessman is one of the highest selling musicians in Namibia and is set to star in his debut movie titled The Inheritance which is expected in 2011.
