Based: Namibia

With John Legend as one of his muses, the soulful tunes of Jermain Casper have recently been making waves on the Namibian music scene. His R&B-styled music hints at personal obstacles he has had to overcome in his life, and his lyrics pull at the heartstrings, as he sings of unrequited love and raw emotional situations. Edgy sensuality also features on his playlist. As a young, up-and-coming artist, Jermain Casper is one name to remember.
