Yaziza Entertainment (formerly known as GreenHouse Entertainment) is a Namibian record label founded by Namibian rapper Sunny Boy in 2006.

Sunny Boy established the company under the name GreenHouse Entertainment in 2006. After rumors of him signing back to Mshasho Records in 2008, Sunny Boy decided to rename, relaunch and re-brand his label. The label plays a big role in the Mshasho/GMP war.

History[edit | edit source]

Sunny Boy was featured on a hit song by Gazza in 2004. The song went on to become one of the best songs released in Namibia in 2004. After noticing Sunny's talent, Gazza offered him an offer to sign with his GMP Records. Sunny Boy eventually turned down the offer claiming that he already had talks to sign with The Dogg's Mshasho Records. Sunny Boy then joined Mshasho, creating bad blood between him and Gazza, the guy who discovered him. His debut album Young, Black en Gifted, was named most anticipated album of 2005. It was released in December of that year by Mshasho Records. The album was critically acclaimed paving Sunny Boy's career to the top. It was produced by The Dogg, newcomer DJ Kboz and the guy who brought both Dogg and Gazza in game Elvo. The album introduced a new type of music which Sunny calls Hikwa, a combination of hip hop and kwaito which would later become very influential.

After the feud between Gazza's GMP Records and Sunny's home label Mshasho started escalating in 2006, Sunny chose to leave the label because he wanted to focus on making professional music and wanted to stay out of the feud. His other reason for leaving the label was also that he was unhappy with the way his Mshasho manager Isack Nyabali was handling his money. He claimed that even though his album was selling he didn't know where his money was going. When The Dogg found out about the allegation, Nyabali was fired from the label, and Sunny had the chance to either stay under new management or leave. After working out a deal with Dogg, Sunny with help from his sister Catherine Shipushu launched GreenHouse Entertainment. A press-conference conducted by Dogg and Sunny proved the public that the departure of Sunny from Mshasho was of goodwill and that they were in agreement and they don't want anyone between them creating problem since they were still close friends and will remain like that.[1] The two MCs latter appeared together on a song off Sunny second album Elai Lineendunge, titled "Who's Gonna Be". The song contains subliminal threats aimed at critics who are against Mshasho and GreenHouse.

Y.B.G.[edit | edit source]

Y.B.G. (Young, Black and Gifted) was a kwaito group that consisted of Sunny Boy, TeQuila, Chipolopolo, Kamasutra and Richie Rich. Sunny Boy was the head of the group, and while signed with Mshasho his aim was to create a label and manage his group. Mshasho being a big label the group tied itself to the label and Sunny lost control of the group. Sunny than left Mshasho and create GreenHouse Entertainment, now Yaziza Entertainment, with hopes of getting his group to sign solo contracts. Due to unknown circumstances the group no longer exist and Y.B.G. only have two original group members, Sunny Boy and Chipolopolo. The group has appeared on several songs together.

The label[edit | edit source]

Upon its creation in 2006, Sunny Boy signed his high school friends Chipolopolo and Kamasutra. Kamasutra released his debut album Kamasutra Style which contained the popular hit "10 Push Ups" which features Mshasho boss The Dogg, Sunny Boy and Chipolopolo. The album was mainly produced by The Dogg and Elvo. Immediately after that Sunny released his second album Elai Lineendunge (Oshiwambo for clever fool).

Yaziza will release Sunny Boy's fourth studio album and Chipolopolo's debut album in March 2012.[2] The two albums which were expected in 2011 were delayed after the two artist lost half their songs at the studio during the recording process. The two are currently re-recording the material.
