Gaoseb is a rapper from the south and is the self-proclaimed Nama trap chief (Nama trap is a new genre of trap music).
The artist's music is personal and relatable.
Gaoseb started composing church music in 2007.
In 2012 he released a gospel album.
Other hits include 'O reg E', 'Witbooi's Sjambok' and 'ITYK'.
Gaoseb says his new single is about the power of captain Hendrik Witbooi's sjambok. "The song celebrates a king, a chief of the Nama people," he says.
He says his upcoming album is controversial. It is a 17-track album the artist plans to release on 25 July.
Gaoseb has teamed up with different producers, such as Elvo, Plug Beatz, Hoppy Mwiya, S-Man and Motion. "On the album there are songs for everyone. There are feel-good and dance songs, while some are touching controversial topics. It is a classic. It will give the consumer a little glimpse into my world," he says.
Gaoseb is also an award-winning stand-up comedian, known as Big Mitch.
In 2019 Gaoseb teamed up with Vivo Energy Namibia for the road-safety campaign 'Be Safe - It Might Hit Closer To Home Than You Think' in an effort to educate young people.
He says music is a way for him to express his experiences.
"I did music before I became a comedian. Music was always part of me. When I started doing music, I didn't even know of such a career path as being a comedian in Namibia. It was actually in high school that I discovered I was funny. About 10 years later I discovered there is such a profession, so in 2014 I took on comedy as a profession," he says.
