MAKING music and stepping into a professional recording studio is a dream come true for budding RNB singer Stelene Uris, better known as Khali.
Born and raised in Walvis Bay, Khali is working on releasing her first singles after years of promoting her talent through covers only.
She recorded a song with Otjiwarongo-based producer Kallo on the Beat called “My Forever”.
In an interview with unWrap.online, she says the music bug bit her at a young age when she started enjoying performing in youth and church choirs.
“I started singing when I was little.
“Since then, music has been my passion. I received a lot of choir training, and as I got older I realized that I wanted to start singing on my own, so I started doing covers and singing different songs from international artists.
“Later, I found myself in the studio with one of the best producers, Kallo on the Beat,” she says.
Her first studio session came after young entrepreneur Carlitos recognized her talent, allowing artist and producer to meet, she says.
Khali has worked on three songs so far, with the tracks currently unnamed.
Although this is her first professional studio session, she says she recorded another song in 2018 but never released it.
“It’s a song I wrote after recovering from a very serious illness, and the lyrics of the song say that I’m a strong woman. Nothing can defeat me, and it’s one of the songs I’m going to release, because I made a very powerful version of it. But so far, yes, I’ve really enjoyed my first experience,” she says.
With many artists coming from small towns overshadowed by musicians from the city, Khali is determined to break the barrier. – unWrap.online
