After more than a decade of being in the music industry and releasing four albums, Kadeen Kaoseb, popularly known as KK, waved goodbye to celebrity life.
The baby-faced rapper, who contributed immensely to Namibia’s rap scene, told VIBEZ! he shifted focus to family and business, as being popular since high school was just a little overwhelming sometimes.
The ‘Khâimâ’ hitmaker said he poured over 10 years of his life into music and achieved great things in that time.
He is quite happy and grateful but believes all things come to an end eventually.
“[Namibian] Music has come a long way since when I started, and it’s great to see. Hopefully, a few more years and our music can take centre stage in front of the world,” said KK.
“But I’m happy with the growth. I’ll only do music for my own sanity and for fun. I won’t sell or perform ever again. That chapter of my life is closed for good.”
He started Facai Investments CC in 2017, with the principle focus of providing medical supplies and equipment.
“We have a wide range of services and also offer Covid-19 disinfections, fumigation and cleaning services.”
The disinfection service became essential with the first lockdown in 2020 and has allowed him to employ five individuals on a full-time basis.
“Disaster and tragedy create opportunities and need, so we were quick to respond to this, and have, thus, managed to build a reputable brand for ourselves in the fight against this deadly pandemic.”
KK’s company prides itself in doing a very thorough and professional job, which requires getting on and in all surfaces, contact areas and the little spaces within the area.
“We start by cleaning and wiping down all surfaces, as this allows for the chemicals to really work and get rid of pathogens. It is very important to clean the surfaces before disinfecting. In most situations, cleaning surfaces (using soap or detergent) is enough to reduce SAR-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19 – and we then finish up with the fogging machines or sprayers to get to surfaces hard to reach by hand. These devices aerosolise chemicals and can remain in the air for long periods of time.”
He urged people to wear their masks, as well as to wash and sanitise their hands frequently.
“Try and wear gloves, avoid touching your face, avoid big crowds and maintain social distancing. Test (for Covid) on a regular basis, and think about your loved ones and co-workers whom you might be putting at risk by being irresponsible.”
