KDogg KT on a hustle in the UK

Up-and-coming Namibian musician Katungua Tjitendero (23), better known as KDogg KT, is striving to make his mark on the music scene in the United Kingdom.

Speaking to VIBEZ! from Bristol, England where he is based, KDogg KT said it is difficult to break through the UK scene as there is a lot of competition and limited big opportunities in the industry.

“So, one of the best ways to do it is to make sure you’re networking and getting to know people who know other big names in the music industry, cause that’s where you’re gonna get the biggest opportunities to grow yourself,” he explained. 

KDogg KT specialises in Drill music, which is a style of trap music defined by its dark, violent and nihilistic lyrical content and ominous trap-influenced beats. The UK made a version of their own, which is now the one known to the world today. 

“I’ve released a lot of songs over the years, but I only started taking music seriously from March 2020 from the moment I released my song ‘Soon I’ll Be Just Fine’, which was also based on a racial attack that happened to me here in Bristol,” added KDogg KT. 

He decided to take it up a notch after working with well-known engineers like Fumez and DJ Limelight. 

His stage name originated from his initials, KT, and from his friends who started calling him KDogg when he moved to join his mother in the UK when he was 14.

 “I’ve been doing music since I was 14 when I was rapping in secondary school here in the UK. So far, I’ve achieved a lot of highlights, but my main highlight has been hitting that 100k views’ mark on YouTube because it’s been something I’ve dreamed of before I started taking music seriously.” 

He does music part-time, but takes it seriously to the point it feels like it’s full-time. Apart from that, he juggles five other occupations, but proudly says he makes them all fit into the week. 

KDogg KT also revealed that he has already collaborated with some Namibian acts.  

“I got a song each so far with three different Namibian artists, but I’m not gonna say who they are yet. I’m planning to come visit, and hopefully perform and shoot a music video in Namibia,” he added.
