4:38 pm
a little bit more about that in my head. i always know there's a little girl is a little boy out there. some way who wakes up every day and just wishes someone could walk up to it and give her a hug for no reason. you know, because that like i always tell people like i understand money's important food isn't for that. but just making some someone feel like you are appreciated, you are important. you know, so i go, i visit schools in a college sanitary pads in m a. be a like, it's really a, it's a pandemic. i must say little girls as young as n as 11 is but eggman do not. and it's most of the time is no by choice. you know? so i visit schools and i talked to those girls about this things. you know, i tell them the importance of education, why it's important to stay in school. so yeah, lake it's, it's things that come from within me. i want us to quickly take a break. but just before the break, i want to ask you, in which language do you dream? i is definitely in the sequin yama, in on my mother,
4:39 pm
in your mother tongue. yes. because like i express myself so much better, like even when a pre, when i talk to god and come to him in the right, you'll be go me. this is middle. bob says as your basic, you know, when my mother them because i believe he understands away. oh yeah, i think i dream definitely in um we are still hanging out with sherry. what were. 7 in the studio and, you know, speaking of language being a unifying factor, i mean, namibia is one country that has several languages spoken in the country, right? and undoubtedly, it is a land of beauty, but it is also home to one of the world's most unequal societies. with a huge gap between the reach and the poor. what will it take to unite the country? oh, no movies. a land of vast open spaces. blessed with good climate rich in its natural resources and a relatively good standard of living. but it also has
4:40 pm
a lot of how i would know that is my home country. now movie is one of the world's most unequal societies. the gap between the rich and poor is staggering. years of colonialism, then a party privileged to the white minority population. and since namibia became a democracy in 1990, there is still a long way to go believe in the world that, that, that has created the systems that make sure that they will protect the haps. that that's the reality of all of the phone. we have to look at the future. we have to look at building something. we have to look at developing. we have to grow as a nation, but it doesn't stop there. high unemployment, especially among the youth, has been worse than by the coven 19 pandemic. and there is also a significant power balance in the namibian society between men and women, and gender based violence is shockingly high. we live in an, in a society where, pardon me, are very much pervasive. are dynamics that also make those choices on behalf of other people and therefore also remove the agency of especially adolescent girls,
4:41 pm
young women and gender nonconforming people. and traditionally, you are taught to not sort of really refuse when a men approaches you because this means older than you are. in other words, our country needs a whole lot of uniting and across many lines. but there are many youth who are trying to change that and i am so lucky to have in the studio 2 of the youths pushing for an a me be as unity through their act. i don't. 6 know about top sure. we and i ha, i give her my it is amazing that she met the time to join us in the studio. i love having you. i want to ask to talk a little bit about that. a report that we just watch for my quarterly or carry talking about unity in the country right in your country. and maybe i sat with you and talk, she would you say that namibia is on the right road in terms of coming together?
4:42 pm
we, we are headed into a direction. yes. but we are still so far. we are really, really so far because the, the necessary people that we need to be in the forefront to hold our hands and say, okay, i get what you guys are doing. let's do this, those, those people, we don't have unfortunate which people with like the main people, like, i mean our li does our, our people in corporate, the people, the hands like you just said, the hurts. you know, in order for, for us to also have the have nots into the conversation. you know, bad people. i had the conversations and meetings for those people, but they're not part of the meeting. i, how do i them? i will get about to ease. i feel that music can do so much good. and when we, when i started my career, people looked at me like, what is this guy's doing? something is weird that i took the namibian flag because that's where i was born.
4:43 pm
you know, i took it and i, wherever i performed on stage, going international, i have that flag with michelle. so like top cherry said, we are on the right way is just give us you the chance to change and make africa. paradise for everybody. yeah, i have, i have to just put this 2 points very succinctly, 1st of all, invite the youth to the table a. secondly, use that add to change that whirl and unite people. now you have a song called a deer journey is it has only adoni didn't yet early years when i listen to this song i this journey, is this part of relating across the continent? yeah. go had yeah. what is have any yeah. some history to this phone ah, now. 6 is this, is this something that happens every day is, can tell you like, guys back home is unless thinkings every day to make a heart, you know, then i, your head gets broken now like that now. yeah. you also got nothing about doing?
4:44 pm
no, i'm more like the guy who makes love song. i really appreciate the woman. yeah. don't to with these play or things was i think as it's time for women it's, it's your time now you are to in the show i'm one guy represented. but i think, yes, we must show so much more love and respect because especially also the african women are the backbone of africa. they hold and that's the respect we need to show them. i love this and indeed you have a song that you slightly mentioned about. you have worked together. i am, you know, in working with a power you know what you, you to, to actually working together. i got a, a, a call for my project. say, jo is, is called me and said he wants a song and i'm like a play when me something when me i'm so busy right now. i hung up and i went above my dates. i think the producer called him as a guy, that guy doesn't believe me. so here is the number get a call in and like, okay,
4:45 pm
for a number and a hello. yeah, this is mag all have you asked people knees i was that was really big. wow. now i have to ask you, why do you think your song, which is why when we united, right, why do you think it's so important right now? i think it's important, especially where, where i come from, you know, because especially in the odds, you know, everybody's trying to do their own thing. everybody is so, so concentrated on their own being that you don't even when i let someone else in, you know, but when we did that song we is showing that it can be done. you know, we can work together any can be a bomb and we can make it work. listen for 77 percent has got it. what you're asking? well, the coolest people from now media in those studio. now let's head over to south africa to meet how again, all my she, lou, aka. how much interesting name, right. but the background is even more fascinating,
4:46 pm
but she loses the cow is the fact that symbol of expression and the most read how culture is changing. the title of my artwork is 123 block myself. it comes from a game, hide and seek, basically, leads to play when lead maternal grandmother, how my name is call co mass. i'm a sculptor primarily, but a multi disciplinary co, much as a deep fascination for the coal, and it's not just in her name's the contemporary artist from what africa limpopo province was raised in the city of 20 is known for her distinctive sculptures. call much tactful religion, culture and identity in her act as a member of the petty people, she married more than a traditional art through the symbolic him of this acrid cole. my name is actually co, hey, lo much about my c low birth given name. my mom you can call me call call when i was younger. so the call part kind of stuck to me when i was all that decided i'm going to go in with the call. what stands out for me is this how prominent that is
4:47 pm
within our practices within the slaughters family gatherings, bringing people together and the most significant being the how the call is the bridge between the ancestral plane and our old coma you the synthetic liver, was to create us cultures combining the various fabrics, either nor to an upbringing in stark contrast to the coal, which is a common feature for africa, but rural landscape plus uses the 30 materials means no coals hummed in the making of her. i have been working as an artist for probably just under 10 years now. i think it started off as a longing to be more connected to the culture. so i pulled from very nostalgic objects that i would see from my grandmother's house and things that reminded me of home. and it says, reminding me of my culture as well. in the beginning it was because i felt that i was removed from a so space. so being a golden grew up in the suburbs,
4:48 pm
it felt as if i couldn't use a real cow hide, because i'm maybe not as connected to cause as my cousins who lived in the homelands her. by exclusively using the black and white color palate call, much aims to elevate block from its perception as a negative carla tickets right from place as an a formative color par pieces a reach in african history. and each one tells a story. recently her modern and contemporary creations of caught the attention of the international market my work as well as my physical appearance or aesthetic both tie in together in being its own version of a culture that is thought there but just inspired by culture, but also there within itself, most african cultures expressed their beliefs through their art. this has played a significant role in shipping the collective cultural history of the world. now
4:49 pm
