Gazza to perform with Uhuru at Swakop NAMA’s
Gazza is well-known by Namibians and is one of the most commercially successful and best selling recording artists on the local scene.
Tim Ekandjo, Executive Chairman of the NAMA committee said that they will continue to systematically announce more big performances as they go along adding that he is already excited by the line-up of performances for this years’ NAMA’s.
He also announced that both the Friday NAMA Industry Awards and the main awards will be broadcast live on NBC TV. “In previous years only the main award ceremony was live on NBC while both ceremonies enjoyed live streams across the world. This year both will be streamed live on the internet and on NBC because of the demand and thousands of request we received to air the Friday awards live,” he stated. Gazza’s music can be defined as a mix of several influnces namely kwaito, dancehall, reggae and hip hop while his lyrics are his signature contribution to township life. To date he has released 10 albums all of which have contributed to making Gazza the best selling recording artist of all time in Namibia. He is also the Goodwill Ambassador of Education sanctioned by the Ministry of Education, Ambassador for Team Namibia as well as for the Back To School Campaign. He believes that education is the backbone that leads to success and makes everyone’s dreams come true.
Uhuru is currently dominating the South African music scenes on radio and television with their fresh new sounds. “We always produce and search for different styles of making music and trying to stay on top of our game and we live and eat music but we are not where we wnt to be yet because we are not musically free,” said Uhuru in a convoluted statement. They added that they are still under construction and that they want to reach an audience beyond Africa with a live performance.
