About

Formerly known as the Dogg, King Tee Dee is one of Namibia's successful artists. He holds more awards than any other Namibian artist. King Tee Dee is the first artist in Namibia to write his autobiography which was released in 2013.

Personal Life

King Tee Dee whose real name is Martin Morocky is a Namibian Kwaito artist born on 31 March 1983 in Maheba, Zambia. His mother was in exile in neighbouring Zambia at the time of his birth but traces her roots to Onayena Oshikoto, Namibia. This means that King Tee Dee is a Zambia-Namibian national. 

King Tee Dee’s parents separated when he was six years old. Thus, King Tee Dee stayed with his father who’d take him to Onayema in Northern Namibia to visit his mother. 

During one of the visits, King Tee Dee’s mother was not available and the Kwaito star took advantage of the opportunity and ran away as he didn’t want to stay with his father. His uncle took up the parental responsibilities and to date, he remains forever grateful to him.

Unfortunately, King Tee Dee lost his parents when he was a teenager.

King Tee Dee’s Schooling

The artist comes from a family of high achievers. One of his sisters is a geologist, the other a businesswoman and his brother is a civil engineer. As a result, King Tee Dee aspired to be a mechanical engineer.  

He embarked on his education journey at Onayema but moved to Windhoek for his secondary education. His uncle who financed his education wanted him to join Windhoek High School but was late for the registration process which is why he attended Augustiniem Secondary School. 

King Tee Dee has already discovered his love for music and was always on the lookout for lyrics of his favourite artists. He even performed in school events and participated in a talent show. Though he never won the competition, his song “Onayena No.9” became popular. 

After high school, King Tee Dee joined the University of Namibia to study marketing but dropped out to pursue music full-time. 

King Tee Dee’s Career

Using school fees to get yourself the things you desire is not a new thing. Some students do this. King Tee Dee did the same thing but he invested money meant for his studies to establish his music career. He requested artists to allow him to perform at their gigs which is how he got his breakthrough.

In 2003 at a New Year’s Eve party, King Tee Dee performed the song “Take Out Your Gun” and even introduced Gazza. That alone was more than enough to prop up his name but he also caught the attention of a lady who went on to finance his music. 

In 2003, King Tee Dee released his first single “Jesus Otati” after which he was signed by the record label RC-Ghetto Records where Gazza was also signed. The following year, King Tee Dee launched his debut album “Shimaliw-Osatana” which translates to Money is the root of all evil to a warm reception. The album won him the Artist of the Year Award and the Best Selling Artist at the SANLAM NBC Music Awards.

King Tee Dee’s run of success went on. His next release “Take Out Your Gun” landed him international recognition after he was named the Newcomer of the Year at the Channel O Awards. He also went on to win more SANLAM NBC Music Awards under the Artist of the Year category, a move that earned him enmity with his music partner Gaza.

King Tee Dee has released five more albums “Introducing TeeDee”, “You Can’t Ignore”, “This Is My Time”, “The Power of Seven - Elevating Elevators” and “The Deception”. In 2021, he teased fans on social media as he asked them to help him name his upcoming album

With success comes opportunities and King Tee Dee took advantage of his moment and launched a clothing line dubbed “Mshasho” which sells Mshasho branded T-Shirts, swimwear and much more apparel.

Kinh Tee Dee is also the owner of Mshasho Label which has produced some of his music and signed artists like Sunny Boy.

Recently, King Tee Dee established an insurance company named Mshasho Insurance with which he targeted to create employment.

King Tee Dee’s Controversy

The Kwaito star downplayed allegations that Tanzanian music star Diamond Platnumz stole his song “The One I Love” after he released a remake titled “The One”. According to King Tee Dee, Diamond made the song original and even said it was better than the original. 

However, his fans were furious as they insisted that the Wasafi record label boss stole the song. Some even went as far as stating that he should never be allowed to perform in Namibia. The song has gained over 36 million views on YouTube.
