About

Lioness is a Namibian rapper who sings in English and her native Oshiwambo. She released her second album Wish You Were Here in 2020 to much critical acclaim. Lioness is also brainy as she holds a degree in medicine and surgery as you’ll find out in this  Lioness Namibia biography.

Personal Life

Lioness whose real name is La-Toya Lucile Mwoombola was born on 10 December in Namibia. Although her date of birth remains unstated, articles published in 2020 indicate that Lioness was 26-years which means she was probably born in 1994. 

Lioness’ has a sister called Gina Jeanz who also works in the entertainment industry. She is an experienced producer and influenced Lioness’ decision to join the music industry. 

She was brought up by a single mother after her parent's divorce and speaks highly of her influence over her life. Her life trajectory - juggling two jobs - is something she borrowed from her mother as well as her high work ethic. 

Lioness’ Schooling

Lioness is a well-read artist. She did her primary and secondary school education after which she joined the University of Namibia and graduated with a degree in medicine and surgery.

Lioness’ Career

Lioness is now a major Namibian artist but her interest in music goes back to her formative years. She experimented with music and made her own songs. Lioness wrote her first piece of music in 2007 and did her first collaboration with Snowflake. 

This helped her to get time with other established artists like RUK and Lo Ski with whom they had studio sessions. Others came along - KP Illest, Sinna G, Reyne MBG, Catty Cat and Quido. This was Lioness’ golden moment as everything fell into place afterwards.

Lioness went on to perform at the Lake of Discovery arts festival in Malawi. South Africa’s Moonchild Sanelley, RJ the DJ, and Praise Umali amongst others performed at the event. In 2015 and 2016, Lioness released two EPs ILL3 and ILL4: The Sequel

Her first studio album Pride of Cilq came in 2018 and two years later, added her second album Wish You Were Here. She released this during the coronavirus pandemic and it was well welcomed.

Lioness sings in Oshiwambo and English and Lioness explained that she is on a mission to spread African music to the world. She was inspired by South African music and proudly sell Amapiano music to the world. 

Interestingly enough, Lioness balances her music career with her medical profession. Will she choose one over the other? Well, Lioness maintains she’ll continue juggling both and only settle on one if she can satisfactorily live on one income. 

Lioness’ Businesses

Away from making music and being a medic, Lioness is an entrepreneur. She set up her home studio where she produces her music and launched her clothing line dubbed CliqXSynedgy. Lioness also earns from brand endorsements. She’s worked with companies like Make Em Up and Top Score Super Maize Meal. 

Lioness’s Relationship

If you were eyeing this Namibian rapper, sorry but she’s taken. In fact, she’s been in a relationship for the last 14 years. She sparked rumours that she is engaged after posting images with a certain Mr M. She was also spotted with a ring on her finger and had high praise for him. 

Despite her silence over her pregnancy, Lioness finally shared her bump with her fans in a stylish photoshoot with her man and finally confirmed that she is indeed expectant. 

Lioness’ Controversy

In this day and age where celebrities are called to be vocal about social issues, it’s easy to rub shoulders with your fans. Well, in 2021, Lioness called out the government for not legalising abortion, gay marriage and marijuana. She argued that the youth are demanding for these changes to be made and thus should deliver the country from ‘backward’ practices.

Lioness’ Car

In 2020, Lioness was involved in a minor car accident on her way back from her day job (medic profession). Her car tyre burst and sent the car rolling three times. Fortunately, she escaped unhurt and so did everyone else who was in the car.
