Walvis Bay — Patricia Majalisa and his producer Dan Tshanda together with various artists from his stable last Friday night defied all odds when they kept their Walvis Bay fans and revellers on their feet despite the coastal night breeze throughout the night.
There was a big turnout with the event kick-starting with the popular Peacock song as he entertained people ahead of the hits Lufuno and Nesindande hit maker. Tshanda, who earlier on declared that the Dalom Kids would perform the whole night, honoured his promise as the multitudes were last Saturday in the early hours seen returning to their respective homes after a great performance from the South African-based artists who set the Kuiseb Community Hall alight.
Credit however to the organisers especially with a splendid job with regard to security.
"I cannot describe how great Dan Tshanda and Patricia Majalisa's show was but what I can say is that we really enjoyed ourselves and we would like to thank him very much for going an extra mile as he performed despite the ever changing weather here in the coast," said a fan, George !Kharuchab.
Majalisa, who was rumoured to have left Dalom Kids, also organised an afternoon show for youngsters passionate about her music.
She took the occasion to introduce her new album titled, Emapatini, which is selling like hot cakes in Southern African countries like Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Lesotho and in her home country, South Africa
Apart from the usual tracks, Tshanda played songs from his new album titled Eewami, and surprisingly people loved these tracks. Dan and Patricia Majalisa, this time around, made up for their fans with an exhilarating performance after last year's show here which was characterised by poor organisation and worsened by rains. After the fans had thrown in the towel thinking that he would not play the Namibians' favourite tracks NamZim and Nesindande, Tshanda unexpectedly sang the songs that later saw his Walvis Bay fans singing more than himself the composer. NamZim is a song dedicated to his fans both in Namibia and Zimbabwe.
Fans were also romanced by another track on his album, Vho Piti, composed in Tshivenda language.
The track kicks off with the lead singer dishing out the chorus, "Ayee - ye hosanna- Ayeye - halala" with Patricia falling in behind, "Halala-halala " before a loud bass keyboard pumped up to sent the Walvis Bay fans into a frenzy.
This lured revelers out of their drinking holes onto the dance floor to join the Dan-Patricia chorusing.
Meanwhile, Dalom Kids stable's, Berea and CJB, and new recruits, Silindile among others, did not disappoint and put up electrifying dances mesmerised with hits and fancy footwork. They performed some of their yester year songs like Happy Man, Sylivia, Watch Out and Stress.
The trailblazing Dalom Stable was founded by Dan Tshanda whose career spans back to 1986 when he unleashed his first album "Peacock" which sold millions of copies in Southern African region.
