24 Friday, December 01, 2017 | NEW ERA entertainment MUSIC Jeremiah Ndjoze Windhoek Keetmanshoop is the next stop on December 16 in the One Night with Matongo show – one of four such gigs which kicked off with a bang at Walvis Bay’s Club Chez Ntemba last Saturday. The trio is throwing fans back into time with hits such as ‘Koes’ and ‘Manuva’, to mention a few. Strauss “Makoya” Lunyangwe, one third of the group, maintains that the turnout and overall response to their performance was way better than they anticipated. “It went down heavy my brother. It was good,” he says. The gigs are meant to musically cater for the group’s diehard fans in four different towns, deliberately selected to cover the west coast, north of the country. The new concept, explains Makoya, is from one of their brainstorming sessions some four years ago. The group intends to solely treat its fans to a musical journey with no other supporting acts but spinning deejays. “We don’t always get the opportunity to throw such a musical experience as time constraints and other limitations are almost every artist’s nightmare. And once you’re booked by a promoter to perform, you’re also limited to day and age, the onus is upon performers to ensure that they always bring their A-game to the party if they are to secure corporate support or maintain their fans. This, Makoya says, takes a combination of unique ideas and their implementation. Other members of the group are Damara Dikding who can be credited for most of the group’s production work, and Thembizo. The Walvis Bay gig also featured deejays 2Piece and Flavour. The trio set the music industry alight back in the 1990s when it blazed the trail of Namibia’s kwaito scene. After gracing numerous stages with an array of hits, the group members went separate ways. Makoya kept releasing albums, Damara Dikding went deep into honing his skills as a producer, and Themba virtually disappeared. It turned out he was on some deep introspection and soul-searching my purpose in life. Now I can say I’m reincarnated,” Themba says, adding that he has found some spiritual awakening, hence his new stage name, Malume, meaning ‘uncle’ in a couple of southern African languages, including Xhosa. Makoya says their time apart has made each of them stronger and wiser as all of them have gone full-circle and know exactly what is expected of them and what to expect from others. “We’re now bringing wisdom to the studio and with that comes great music and entertainment for our fans,” Makoya says. The next One Night with Matongo after Keetmanshoop is Gobabis on a date yet to be cattle country do, the Matongo engage fans at Funky Lab in Ongwediva on December 31 The trio… Damara Dikding, Malume (formerly Themba) and Makoya who have embarked on an intimate affair with their fans in the four corners of the country with the next serenade in Keetmanshoop on December 16.
