Namibia: Elemotho Takes Over Nice Restaurant

Windhoek — After great anticipation and being on everyone's lips for quite some time now, it was obvious many did not want to miss this show.

Radio France International Award winning Artists, Elemotho, proved Saturday, that not only is he one of the best star attractions at the Bank Windhoek Music Circle but also that he deserves that award. The venue was so packed that some people even had to stand, as all the seats were filled. However, that did not stop the fans from getting in and watching the Namibian export perform live.

Among the opening acts were Ray, a comparatively young singer-songwriter with many years of musical experience, who performed solo and entertained the crowd with his spontaneous guitar and voice before Blossom, who introduced songs from her latest album, KomuthiyaGwomea, which thrilled the enthusiastic crowd, followed by Onesmus a.k.a. 'Slick', a comedian who provided a stand-up sketch on music in general.

Then came the moment the crowd was waiting for, when Elemotho hit the stage. The Performing artist didn't disappoint his fans as he charmed the audience with his African flavoured rhythm when he dished out his super hit KeNako (It's time) from his latest album.

As part of his competition prize, Elemotho and his three co-musicians got a fully sponsored tour of Africa, courtesy of RFI, and a doorway to the international music industry and they will be traveling to Ghana, Benin, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Guinea Bissau, Senegal, Mauretania, Cape Verde, Reunion Island, Niger, Congo Brazzaville, Chad, Equatorial Guinea, Djibouti, North Sudan, Zambia, Madagascar, Tanzania, Kenya, Ruanda, Uganda, Angola, and South Africa and, finally will stage its final concert of the tour in the capital on June 12.

Like they say hard work does pay, to top it off the show was a must watch and a not to miss concert next time.
