The rise of Dalock De Baddest on music scene

DALOCK De Baddest is the stage name of Rundu-based musician Luiz Ndara, a native of Kaisosi in Kavango East who is a singer, songwriter and music producer.

He is among local musicians nominated for this year’s AfriFame Awards in the best regaue/dancehall category.

Dalock has been working on his craft as an independent musician for more than 10 years.

He is known for his distinctive fusion sound, which combines elements of rap, dancehall, raggaeton, rebel voices from the reggae genre, and Afro-beat chord progressions and rhythms to create a new and original sound.

With the release of his debut double EP, ‘Capitalist Gang Star’, in 2014, the singer launched a successful solo career.

The subsequent release of his single ‘Vingalafa’ cemented his status as a performer of remarkable talent and promise.

Dalock’s debut album, ‘Inception’, which was released two years later and won a lot of praise for its avant-garde sound, demonstrated his great breadth as a musician and producer.

Despite being an independent artist, the musician states, “I remain dedicated to releasing new music on a regular basis.”

He claims that in order to build his brand, spread awareness and amass a sizeable following, he is committed to releasing a single every month.

This strategy, he claims, has helped him maintain the integrity of his musical vision, while engaging his listeners on a deeper level.


The singer gifted the music industry in June with the release of the song ‘Halakana’. His new single for the year, a compelling love song that, in slang, means ‘Listen Up, Mommy’.

According to Dalock, the song “beautifully expresses the artist’s emotions as they get lost in their thoughts while gazing upon this beloved person.”

This expression of affection is addressed to a unique woman, he says.

He adds, ‘Halakana’ transforms into a genuine love tribute, with its beautiful melody, portraying a gentle image of adoration and devotion that resonates with listeners’ hearts and emotions.

The singer’s second single, ‘Mirror’, a potent anthem that explores the depths of the human spirit, was released last month.

The creator of this engaging work uses music as a medium to explore the enormous complexities of life’s journey.

The message of the song is that life’s journey is full of unexpected moments where we falter and encounter difficulties.

“Despite this, we frequently forget to examine our inner selves and recognise our true potential in the midst of these trials.”

The soul-stirring song ‘Mirror’ invites listeners on an inner journey and challenges them to embrace a deeper understanding of who they are.

The chorus repeats, “Mirror, mirror, reveal a greater truth, beyond just me!” It is a captivating melody that prompts listeners to look past their disappointments and discover the breadth of their capacities.

More than 114 645 people have watched the single’s music video, which was shot by Gud Shot and released along with the song two weeks ago.

Dalock’s commitment to his craft and creative approach to music have made him a popular figure with critics and fans and could see him continue to make waves on the music scene for years to come.
