Cassidy describes himself as an electronic musician and experimentation is pivotal to his identity, plus he considers himself a student of life.

I write about everyday life in Katutura from the perspective of appreciation and I try to celebrate who we are and what we are capable of as a community and act as a voice and reference for children who want to take an alternative approach to life,” he said. He celebrates being black and from Katutura by grounding himself within the aspiration to become a catalyst for change in his community.

I spread a homegrown narrative of hope and overcoming difficulties we face in our communities. I have experienced the Namibian struggle as well as Namibian victory at the highest level,” he added.
