Sinkox to release second album by July

29 April 2016 | Art and Entertainment

Upcoming artist Frans Munana, known by his stage name ‘Sinkox’, says he plans to release his second music album titled ‘First Impression’ by July.
Munana (23) was born in Oshakati and raised in Keetmanshoop. In an interview with Ewi lyaNooli earlier this month the Afro-pop and Kwaito artist said fan support is critical in any artist’s career.
The overwhelming response to his debut album ‘The Warning Version’ encouraged him to continue with music, he said.
“My fans showed they appreciate my music and the effort I show them when I am on the stage, therefore I was encouraged to continue singing and I had to deliver a second album.”
Munana said if it was not for challenges he experienced last year, his second album would have been on the shelves and playing on jukeboxes already, adding that he could have been a nominee for the 2016 Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAs).
“With this album I would have been taking part in the NAMAs but unfortunately you know how life is. I experienced challenges but I will be taking part in the awards in the future, all I have to do is work hard,” Munana said.
Asked what it takes to remain in the entertainment industry, Munana urged upcoming artists who are passionate about music to remain committed and work hard to achieve greatness.
“Quitting is not an option for an artist but working hard to be good at what you do is the one. It is not easy but you can make it because you are passionate about music,” he said.
Munana said one of the key elements in a song is its message, stressing that artists should focus more on singing about real-life situations in order to educate the youth.
“Your music should have a message which people will relate to and be able to learn something from.
“Artists must not only focus on educating their audiences but they should focus on educating the nation instead through their music,” he said.
Munana said his upcoming 15-track album focuses on empowering, educating and inspiring the youth of the country, and his fans will see more of him when he performs at shows this year.
