Yes, yes, Yessonia!

Swakopmund-born Sonia Shalukeni (31) aka Yessonia, is really making waves in the local music industry following the release of her latest singles.

Yessonia who completed her high school at Westside High School, recently released three singles namely “Muscle up”, “Bring it” and “Wakasikwa”.

In a recent interview, Yessonia explained the concept behind these three songs.

“‘Muscle up’ is my very first musical baby, so she’s personal to me. It’s a message for young women to toughen up and get their act together. It is for men too, though. ‘Bring it’ is a collaboration with Top Cheri, again talking about how we just want to have our own way. And then there’s the collabo with King Bill, Wakasikwa, which means beautifully created,” she said.

While unsigned at the moment, Yessonia has worked with different producers for these three numbers. “‘Muscle up’ was recorded in the UK, but has now revamped by a local producer from Ogopa, Preazy. Wakasikwa was produced in Zimbabwe by Skoflid, ‘Bring it’ by Andrew on the Beat who I hope to be my producer.”

According to singer, music has always been something she has loved, although she never thought of making a full time career of it, because it was not the way she was raised. “It wasn’t even a negotiable topic, so I went to varsity and did my accounting and finance qualification. Life took me to various places where I met the good, the bad and the ugly, but through it all I was always in the right place at the right time. I came to a place of personal comfort and then I could finally focus on my passion,” she says.

“Although it wasn’t 100% planned, I went into a studio in the UK while a friend was recording and I said, ‘hey get me a beat so I recorded too and bang, there it was – my very own first single. From there my journey grew. I’m currently doing Afro beats while I figure out what genre will really work for me, as it has merely being five months.”
