Olympic Champions Mboma & Masilingi Keep Shining.

Imagine having a song written about you. Remember when Emtee gave one to Pearl Thusi? That's a lot of work. They're also available to our neighbors. There is a new hit song from Get Rich that is dedicated to Christine Mboma and Beatrice Masilingi. The Namibian flag is flying high lately, and we are all proud of them.

"Our Winners" features Tox 35 from Get Rich and is a tribute to them. This is a song about how proud the country is of them after they recently won big at the Tokyo Olympics 2021 and how proud they are of themselves.

Beatrice is suffering a similar battle as Caster Semenya, but she has shown that despite the hardships you face in life, there is always a silver lining to it.

Since her testosterone levels were greater than what is allowed for female athletes, World Athletics prohibited her from competing in the women's 600m race.

When she was interviewed by BBC News, she opened out about how this affected them. "From varied backgrounds and upbringings, everyone of us has a unique story to tell. It's simply different. Individually, we are all made in a unique way with varied goals in mind. Because of this, you can't compare me to anyone else. Really, it's not fair! "Masilingi chimed in.
