EP#44 GAZZA – BEHIND THE MUSIC

Listen to Stitcher

I recently went to Namibia and attended the Namibian Annual Music Awards 2017 where I met Gazza and his team. I watched him win awards that night and the next morning, we recorded this podcast.

Gazza, is one of the most commercially successful and best selling recording artists in Namibia.

Since the entrance into the Namibian music scene, Gazza has worked his way up to become the most commercially successful artist in Namibia. He has also become a firm favorite in Namibian households with the young and old alike and has embarked on tours that have expose him to the rest of Africa and the world. He has been well accepted and is a firm favorite with Channel O, a DStv channel, where his work and life is regularly showcased.

His music can be defined as a mix of several influences namely Kwaito, Dancehall, Reggae, Hip Hop and his lyrics are about the township life. His sharp lyrics reflect the intricacies of Namibian life and strike a familiar chord with Namibians from all walks of life, young and old.
To date, he has released over 10 albums, all of which have contributed to making Gazza the best selling recording artist of all time in Namibia.

SHOWNOTES:
Dr.Jonathan David Farley received his D.Phil. in mathematics from the University of Oxford in 1995, after winning Oxford’s highest mathematics awards, the Senior Mathematical Prize and Johnson University Prize, in 1994. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1991, with an A.B. in mathematics. He had the second-highest grade-point-average in his graduating class. He has also had visiting appointments at the California Institute of Technology, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Harvard University, and he has been a Science Fellow at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation. Dr. Farley is one of only four Americans to win a 2001-2002 Fulbright Distinguished Scholar Award to the United Kingdom. He is the 2004 recipient of the Harvard Foundation’s Distinguished Scientist Award, given on behalf of the president of Harvard University for “outstanding achievements and contributions in the field of mathematics.” Seed Magazine named him one of “15 people who have shaped the global conversation about science in 2005.”

Professor J. Farley also co-founded Hollywood Math and Science Film Consulting where they’ve worked on several tv shows including Elementary, Numbers and Flatland(consulted for a film with Kristen Bell and Martin Sheen).

Jonathan thinks very differently, in fact his thoughts are usually unconventional. My impression was to talk about math as you might’ve thought but we talked about life. Specifically about politics, dating, places among other things.

Below are few points I picked up from Jon which stood out for me in our conversation:
-Obama is a war criminal. He should be charged for murder.
-Marriage isn’t worth it for men, it’s actually a mistake.
-Alimony should be eliminated.
-Feminism is harming women.
-The skills required to be a successful politician are not the same skills that are required to run a state successfully, that’s the problem.

We also did a part 2 where we talked about other subjects we didn’t cover on this one like his mathematical formula to eliminate ISIS/terror, his childhood, academia and more. All you need is to subscribe to stay updated with new podcasts.
