Born in Windhoek, Namibia, hip-hop/R&B & Afrobeats musician Desmond Katamila began his music career by recording his first song “On Top” with acclaimed producer, the late, Julius Spiegel.
In 2008, Desmond won his first award at the Sanlam Namibian Music Awards for his feature on fellow emcee, D-Jay’s “Girl Like Mine” record. This was the first of many honors to come for the Namibian artist. After the success of releasing his much-anticipated debut album “About Time” in 2014, Desmond went on to receive the Best R&B Artist of the Year award at the Namibia Music Awards in 2015. To top it all off, he was selected to perform as the opening act for R&B sensation, Trey Songz at a concert.
Desmond continues to work hard and grow as an artist and push the envelope for opportunities available for Namibians. He aspires to be one of the leading brands in the Namibian music industry accessing both the continental and international markets. In the past, Desmond has been a brand ambassador for Coca-Cola, the National Road Safety Council of Namibia, and has recently partnered with SAB Miller for their “Break the Habit “alcohol abuse campaign.
Desmond recently released his latest single, “Know Better” feat Jaleel and he is currently working on his next album, “ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC “, which is set to be released this year.
