Local talent

29 May 2008 | Kollig
Local kwaito master The Dogg is another guest performer at this year’s Miss Namibia pageant. This well-known artist has taken the Namibian music industry by storm with his catchy lyrics and bodymoving beats. Born in 1983 in Zambia, Moroly Mbwaluh was repatriated to Namibia where he began his formal education in Ondangwa.

The youngest of four children, his aspiration as a child was to become a mechanical engineer although music remained to be dormant passion. In 1997 he came to Windhoek and began his secondary schooling and after matriculating, he chose to study for a Marketing Degree at the Unam.

After his first year, The Dogg chose to leave university and pursue a career in music. After some time, The Dogg released his first album entitled Shimaliwa Osatana meaning “Money is the root of all evil”. After the success of his first album, in late 2003 he was voted the Artist of the Year at the Sanlam NBC Music Awards and since then The Dogg has been reigning supreme.

Shortly after his second album Take Out Yo Gun was released which rocked the music charts and maintained a blasting effect on the radio waves. Early in 2005 his third album, Introducing TeeDee was launched which topped the music charts with songs like “Baby Don’t Go”, “I Like It Like This” and “Inakusha”.

Successes in 2006 were not only in his musical career but also in his business career as his “Mshasho” clothing line expanded, attracting the Namibian community to astounding measures. Today he boasts his own sms-line where he is inundated with text messages from fans and die-hard supporters In September 2007, The Dogg released his fourth album U can’t ignore. The year ended on a high note when he was awarded the titel of Artist of the Year. He recently celebrated five years in the industry with a hugh birthday bash in the capital.
