Namibia: Omalaeti Releases PDK , Tate Buti?s Albums

Windhoek — Omalaeti Music Production has finally released two new brand albums.

Fiyotakushi, a 17- track album by PDK and Ompini, a 17-track album by Tate Buti have hit the market. The latest album by the PDK trio of Patrick, Deon and Kamutonyo is a great album with gigantic tracks mixes with different genres that are destined to hit the local jukeboxes. Fiyotakushi follows in the footsteps of the trio's previous album Moko but with an extra party and danceable edge.

The album opens with the song Bam Bam, a love song with the inspirational voices in it with a Soukous/Kwasakwas-sounding. Revelers only need to move their feet and/or shake their heads up and down with no rush dancing. The title track track, Fiyotakushi (Until Sunrise), a party song, promises to be one the hits of the album and is bound to keep revelers up until the wee hours of the morning as the title well suggests.

As if Fiyotakushi has not already done the magic, party freaks, both young and old, should as much be on the look out for the tenth track, Kufamo Oikutu. Any one listening to this song, is bound to leave what ever she/he is doing and to be carried away by it an experience this author went through personally. But the long and short of it is that it is difficult to choose a winner song on the album as all the songs on the album can easily lay claim to this status each in its own right. If you thing that this public relations mumbo jumbo on behalf of PDK, grab a copy and hear and see for yourself. The album features eight artists such as Jozzy, S-Man, Christmas, Star, Tina, Go-Star, Tate Buti and Makanda.

Getting to Tate Buti's latest album, I have a feeling that people will like what Tate Buti did on Ompini (Wooden Handle) , as he put more effort in the songs and he seems to go that extra mile more in the singing then on his previous album. You can clearly follow the messages in his lyrics unlike before when one got carried away dancing because of the nicety of the beats. Many may say Ompini has a strange name on it, wondering what Tate Buti really means by naming his album Ompini, but he simple just want to tell his fans that he's getting strong in the industry and there is no turning back for him.

Tate Buti chains with 14 other artists in impressive collaborations including the fast-paced Tswana House-Kwasa (party music); Afro-House; Kwiku; Jazzied-Kwaito; Nam Rumba and Oviritje.

Meantime, to ensure that the CDs are widely distributed countrywide, Omalaeti has teamed up with Marthin Shipanga's Mamma Fresh and Tusk Mobile & Electronics. The distribution deal, which is the first of its kind among local black entrepreneurs, has resulted in the CD prices dropping to N$75.95 in all the Moola Mobile outlets.
