New??

Laugh so I stepped out side of my comfort zone last night, tried something I don’t normally do and it was not that bad.

Let me take you back..
I met this guy on snapchat, don’t know how we ended up following each other but it happened.

We had this on and off chat situation on snap which was cool and all but the days we had no credit meant no chatting.

I braved up and gave my number and asked for his number, for some reason I felt at ease with him.

The on and off chatting still continued but on whatsapp this time.

Seems the like last relationship he was in real did a number on him to the point that he believes being alone is much better than being in another situation that may leave him in pieces again. I don’t blame him at all for thinking like that because love is like an ocean , you never really sure how deep it is till you get into the water. At first the water may be cold but it does not mean the water will not warm up later because water is like love no place to hold on to.

I have been asking to meet him for sometime now, seeing that we both are in Windhoek. Surprisingly when I ask yesterday if I could come over for dinner he said yes, for a moment I thought he was joking *laugh * but he was not after all.

Let’s get into last night
So I arrived at his place and it was not that weird at all because I’m super shy when I first meet someone for the first time but this time was completely different.

Not sure if it’s the fact that he made me feel at easy or his silly jokes that got me talking alot last night.

He told me what kind of music he listens to luckily we almost got the same taste in music but on the movie scene he like actions, horror films which I don’t like at all I’m more of romantic comedy kind of a guy but will take a series over a movie anytime.

The best part of the night was his cooking, it was not too bad at all.

That moments when we would just look at each other and start laughing for not reason.

Like all good things the night had to sadly come to an end. Getting a cab was just impossible, the wait was just way too long and it was cold last night but having him wait with me was crazy fun his jokes were just the ones.

Like the good boy I am I ended the night with a big tight hug.

I’m a little confused cause we have not talked since last night but maybe he his busy at work.

It’s hard to tell his emotions.

I’m sure what I’m feeling at the moment,  just to early to say anything on that now.

That was my about last night.

My Adventurous Week

This week reflects doesn’t have much on the cards, with so many public holidays we had this week it was hard to be productive but I was able to do a lot with the little time I had.

Let me break it down..

This week was so fun surprisingly, crazy is not the right word to use to describe my behaviour.

I was so feeling myself this week, must have been the fact that I got my hair.

Work

The vibe at work this week felt like a political congress was taking place *laugh* not saying much on that.
I must say the highlight of my week is the hours I spent at work and the fun moments it brings which turns into beautiful memories.

My Night Out

This week a friend of mine Mark Kariahuua announced his new website and his one man show, he is a hot  comedian by the way just putting it out there but I’m not sure if he is single ladies.

To make things worse the event had an open bar but sadly no food. I swear I only had two drinks *laugh * still needs to be proven according my friends ,the fact that I don’t remember what happened that night and how I got home. I must say it’s wonderfully refreshing to have care free night.
I did nothing that broke any laws luckily or else I would’ve had my first night in jail *laugh * however I did something stupid that most of us do when we have too much to drink, I’m referring to that drunk phone call and text moment.  In my case I was a victim of taking a picture after throwing up who does that , to make it worse I sent the picture to the person I had a crush on, I have never be this embarrassed.
Clearly my phone had its own agenda that night and funny enough it was flat in the morning to hide what it did *laugh *.

Was a beautiful evening, with amazing people and a very weird ending.

Crush of the week

Mmmmm…. I was not completely sure if i was crushing on this person because that night I had some wine not sure about the amount of glasses and it’s not allowed to count *laugh * just made that up by. Back to what I was saying about my crush, so I saw the person again on Saturday night looking much cuter then I can remember, clearly it was not the wine. I was like God please stop this, whatever it is reason being most people look single but are dating but I must admit I have a little crush on his smile.

Best part we took a picture together thanks to wine of that other night.

Superhero of the week

My crazy ass friend Janet reason being I asked her to get information on the person I’m crushing on and she got me the name already, it pays to have a journalist friend who also wants to see you happy.

Again it was not easy getting her to do this, I had to blackmail her first *laugh* a little motivation is needed sometimes when  dealing with friends.

Best Moment of my week

Seeing Oteya’s performance at the CD  launch of my Ongoma , this woman is truly a entertainer she deserves to be call  Queen Oteya.  Never disappoints, always bringing fire to the stage. Loveeeeeeee it

Lessons learned

Be present in the moment 😄.

To say what I feel, when I feel it. Nothing is more disappointing that unsaid words,it kills the ‘what if’ , ‘what could’ve been’ and most importantly it gives you peace of mind.

Achievements

Growth is always on the agenda every week.

One of my blog post being published in the Namibian Sun Newspaper,  thanks to June.

Not reacting on my emotions.

Live your life the best way possible you never know when it’s your last day.

My Peaceful Week

My Peaceful Week

Another reflects on a week that has passed. This was one of my most peaceful Weeks I had which is so weird for me. This week also marked our term break for College.

Let me break it down..

I have been in totally control of my feelings this week, that of people I like and used to liked.

People have a way of showing their feelings towards you without saying a word, it’s true the eyes are the windows of a person’s soul and I have seen yours this week.

Work

I don’t feel like touching on work this week, no weird story to share unfortunately just my colleagues being crazy fun individuals.

School

This week I’m including College because we are officially on break and this is one really long. It was a fantastic first term passed all of my classes and got 3rd position all over in class for this term but wanted first place. Just happy my friend is number 1 for this term, friendship goals.
Will miss all of my life loving class mates, hope you guys will make crazy memories this break and have some amazing sex please.

Crush of the week

Another week is passing by and I’m still crush on you idiot, laughing with you is the second best part of my day. Lastly thanks for keeping it real KN.

Superhero of the week

The most unexpected person is my food superhero *laugh* since last week I have be craving cake and koeksister 😊. So I ask my Co host to buy me a slice of cake and he say no however to my surprise he was waiting for me with cake at work guys I swear this single handily made my weekend. A dark,soft chocolate cake slice, with sweet jam in the inside and with every bite came an orgasm in my mouth leaving me wanting more and more, the power of cake. All thanks to my food superhero Kotjii.

Lessons learned

Not to be afraid to give into my feelings,  you only live once.
The importance of being thankful for the  people in my live.
Liking someone is okay, as long as it doesn’t hurt you in the process or makes you unhappy in any way.
Only move on when you are ready even if the other person has moved on already because your feelings are not the same and you don’t share the same journey. Wait till you are ready then close it off with your own time.

Achievements

Growth is always on the agenda every week.

Being happy without a reason.

You have 7 days, you can spend them unhappy, complaining about life or you can take those days and turn them into days of gratitude.

Learn to celebrate your life every day because it’s a gift and the best way to spend a gift is by enjoying it.

Music

The Moment has arrived

For the last month we have been eating and talking Namibian music because of the Namibian Annual Music Awards 2017, artists, journalists and radio presenters have been campaigning like never before, the whole process was exciting for all involved. The feeling of not knowing if you have done enough or if people really voted for you like they have said is so nerve wrecking.

Most certainly I also voted for my favorites like crazy and just hope they remember me when they drop their winning words that night.

As much as the Namibian Annual Music Awards celebrate artists and their music, we should not forget the role radio stations and newspapers play in building the music industry. It’s satisfactory enough that there are categories for ‘best entertainment journalists’ and ‘radio DJ of the year’ but NAMA organisers should look into creating categories for radio stations that play the most local music and that create opportunities for local artists in terms of free interviews, this will push radio stations in the country to focus more on Namibian music also. The same applies for print media as well. This way we can expect more stories from upcoming artists, the already establish ones and allowing journalists to tell creative stories about Namibian music. This will in turn create healthy competition and it’s just a heads up for the Namas organizers to take up and look into.

When I saw the list of artists who will be performing at the awards I was like Yes! New faces, new voices, a couple of old ones, I love the whole mix up of performers for this year, particularly the all-female element. Looking forward to Adora’s first Namas solo performance, Doris gives me life can’t wait to see what she brings to the NAMA stage and lastly the lady that killed it last year Female Donkey. We have another reunion on the NAMA stage this year Raphael & Pele. These guy were one of the reason I love ma // music, truly hope they will burn down the stage with their electrifying dance moves.

 

By now the nervous have kicked in. The moment is officially here just make sure you look your best and most importantly you have tons of fun. Remember to network because that is what the NAMA event  is about making connection, finding love and making money.

 

To all nominates you are all winners, *laugh* but for real it’s not the number of awards that define your worth but the long lasting impact your work had on people.

Let’s celebrate Namibian Music this weekend like never before, by the way what is the theme for this year’s award if you know tweet it to me @Joe1orr.

Emotional Roller Coaster of a (a late post)

First time I’m reflecting on my week because this one was so different, saw people’s true colours ,what I mean to them and being made aware of my position in their lives.

Let’s get straight into…

My feelings for you

When this week started I never imagined it will end like this with my feelings all over the place, questioning people’s role in my life, the love for what I’m doing, and my feelings for You. Truly thought this week would be the one that I stop liking you for all the wrong reasons, that your name wouldn’t cross my lips however I know I’m not in love with you,  knowing that my heart is save from you gives me peace or is this a lie I tell myself when you cross my mind 5 times a day or it could be stupidly. The hot flashes I get when you are around me, your body gets me thinking dirty thoughts, think this is one of the ways you are busy leaving my system.

Work

Had some work drama this week all because of a tweet I sent and shit got real but I handled it the Olivia Pope way I fixed the shit out of it lol watching scandal payed of after all however I was in the wrong and let’s just leave it there.

One more thing I got the best colleagues this doesn’t include all of them by the way and the craziest, sweetest boss ever.

My crush of the week

Yes! I had one this week with an amazing voice. Thanks to a friend who dragged me to an event which was worth going to. So back to my crush cute is not the right word to use for this person, I need a new word. When the person when on stage to sing, that was the highlight of my, a beautiful voice made me realise why I came and just what I needed in that very moment. As always I was so shy couldn’t get a word out but got the name at least and now we are friends on Facebook.

Not my type I realise this later.

My superhero for the week

My extra friend Nashawn, the word extra doesn’t describe this soul of a person but  he made this week so fun and crazy for me. Thanks for being there, for caring and for the support.
Next weekend is your time to shine, I’m sure that Nama award is already yours because I voted my ass off for you.

Lessons learned

To live in the moment.
To ignore my feelings for you.
Not to trust people completely.
Stop giving fuck.
To be careful of people.
Open up a little because I’m very shy.
Most importantly to have an open mind to learn something new every day.
Always choose happiness and peace of mind.

Achievements

Growth on a personal, educational, work level.

And Yes! I’m ready to love and to be loved.

Owning next week, every single day is a blessing and a chance for rebrith.

Connection failed

You know when you meet someone for the first time and they are almost what you want but there is no real connection or I have just been down playing it for a while.

That awkward moment when we both look at each, caught in the moment for a short while but there is a problem I have not seen the persons feet yet because I’m a feet lover.

Long story short….

The person rocks up yesterday gives my friend a hug and walks up to me, I asked “I’m also getting a hug” to my surprise the person said yes come here and the person is a really good hugger. Feeling the heat of the person against my body was weirdly nice , leaving me wondering what the kiss would be like but it’s just one of those people you just  want to be friends with.

Uncategorized

I’m so confused

I know I can’t have you but you make me want you knowing that you are in a position which doesn’t allow you to have me.
Thinking about you has become second nature however I’m fighting my feelings that are already there. I ask myself “how did this happen” why me ? Then I see your smile ,I have my answer and the way you light up when you smile leaves me weak to the point that I can’t stand on my own.  Your laugh is music to my ears, your voice is medicine to my soul, all I need is a little bit but could this very same medicine be the death of me? Are you busy killing me slowly? I’m turning into a  victim of love. The way you look at me makes me feel like I’m the only boy in the world, I’m your Eiffel Tower if you only allow me to light up your world. My perfect moment is when you look at me, the way you do without saying a word,  the way our eyes meet and connect for a moment is just the two of us. I call it our language because no one else gets it but us.
When you touch me it feels like my body is melting in your hands, you are the fire my body needs to stay warm at the same time I’m scared that this very fire can burn me out. My lips can’t simply forget yours, the fire I felt when our lips met for the first time, felt like I was falling from a high building and you were right there to catch me, your kisses set my lips on fire and now you want to kill it. I was fine without you, why did you ask me about my feelings, knowing you can’t keep the fire burning that you have started. Hating you has crossed my mind like the wind blowing on a cold winter morning but then my heart is heated up by your voice like the sun heats up the earth on a cold afternoon.
Why are we fighting this? I’m ready to fall for you completely but I’m not sure you will be there to catch me.
It kills me slowly when you ask me to stop thinking about you in that way.
If you can’t be happy with me, I hope you will be happy with the person you with. Your happiness is my favourite season, seeing you laugh is my summer, seeing you smile is my spring.
Could this be the end to my short lived fairytale?

We all need that love story to be true

Yes, could 2017 be the year of real true love? A love that is so strong that allows us to be vulnerable and to show a different side. Love only occurs when you allow it to, I know falling is really a scaring feeling but you will not know unless you try. Some scars are worth all the trouble in the end because happiness is a road full of roses with thorns, sometimes you will get hurt but that will teach you to be careful next time. We should always keep in mind that love doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time to grow into what you want it to be.

Love is not measured by how soon you say the word or how fast you take your clothes off for someone or how expensive the gifts you buy are, love is one of those cheap things we all can afford to buy but if it comes with a price tag then it’s not love. This may sound stupid but the true measure of love is not giving up on your partner, always being around without saying a word, being their life saver when they need one and most importantly listening with understanding in order to communicate effectively.

Never forget to love yourself because in most cases we forget to love ourselves while in the process of falling in love, only then can you give yourself fully to the next person.

In most case we all don’t experience that love we want and need but don’t let that stop you from experiencing this wonderful thing called love, there is a rock for you in the sea, it takes time for it to reach the beach, in the meantime play in the sand get your feet wet, feel the cold water between your toes. Live life and don’t wait to fall in love.

We all want to wake up to a beautiful smile next to us, a passionate kiss for breakfast, an ear that never gets tired to hear our voices. Know that you are loved for who you are and not what you have or how you look.

Let’s be brave enough this year to falling love and live the love story you have been dreaming off or reading about it in books, let that movie be yours. Let’s say goodbye to being a booty call or the side piece on the plate.

Let’s be drunk in love for 2017.

The transformation of Namibian Music in 2016

Can we agree on this point? This year our artists have showed the rest of the African continent that they have arrived and are here to shake things up. When one Namibian artist is nominated, that artist represent the rest of the country whether they win or lose, just the fact that it creates a platform for networking and to get our name out there. We had The Dogg who was the first Namibian artist to be nominated for the MTV MAMA Awards 2016 this was a real big thing, though he didn’t win but everybody was talking about him, he’s name is out there. It’s not always about the win but what you do with your nomination. Sally wining an award for best female Southern African at the All African Music Awards was a perfect way to close off the year 2016. Let’s take a moment to talk about the quality of local music videos and the views they have been getting on YouTube it’s absolutely crazy. That’s what we wanted all along, creativity goes a long way in making a video, as well as beautiful sites which we are not short of in Namibian.

If you want a high quality music video be prepare to put money into it. Trace Africa has been playing more Namibian music videos and our artists are killing it on the Trace chart.  The more time you invest in making a quality video, you are busy creating a hit because in most cases the video makes the song a hit. No forgetting the Namibian Annual Music Awards has also been doing a great job in terms of awarding well established and upcoming artists this year. I think it’s about time radio stations get together to host an award ceremony for local artists because at the rate our local industry is growing at, it is impossible to only have one. That is something for station managers to think about.

The year 2016 has truly being about celebrating Namibian Music and Showing the African continent that we are here and we didn’t come to play. This year we have also welcomed amazing new talent to the mix. Let’s work together to make 2017 bigger and great for Namibian Music, Yes!      Continue reading “The transformation of Namibian Music in 2016”

Are we celebrating our local artists enough?

That is the question each one of us should be asking ourselves. Radio presenters have a great part to play in this case, as a presenter you are in control of your playlist, you decide which artists you want to play on your program. Do we as radio presenters take time to listen to local music as much as we listen to international artists songs, we have the power to create a hit song because that song that is a hit now was once unknown, till it was started to be played on radio. You have a local upcoming artists with a great song possible a massive hit but it’s not played because this artist is unknown and we as radio presenters and DJ’s want to play the well-known artists. We need to put laziness and favoritism a side and start to celebrate and play all of our local artists. We seems to forget it’s our job as radio presenters to introduce new artists and songs to our listeners.

Local artists should also starting having listening session with radio presenters before they release their album for feedback and input, these are the people who will be playing your music on their programs and share it on their social media platforms, so why not involve them from the start. As we are trying to build a standard for Namibian music cross the board. Artists also have a responsibility to market themselves and their music, you can’t come and drop an album off at a radio station and expect it to be played, and we have a lot of these cases at Base FM. I always encourage artists to book for an interview so they can introduce the album or single to their fans and sell their brand. Artists need to start thinking beyond the borders of Namibia in terms of getting their music played on African radio station. How are you selling your brand as a Namibian artist? Every local artist must have a twitter and YouTube account its how you put yourself out there for the world to see.  If you don’t have one please after reading this article go and open one and don’t let it be ghost account, we have a lot of those, this is one of the way how you stay relevant. Radio presenters play more local music across the broad, listeners request more local jams and artists give us something worth playing over and over. Let’s create great hits that will be still be played 5 years later, let’s celebrate Namibian Music because local is lekker.
