Monday, December 4 2017 | NEW ERA 7 Ras on stage with The Monkey Nuts Staff Reporter Windhoek The finale, at least for this year, of the popular Night Under the Stars live music show is slated for this Friday at the usual rendezvous, the Goethe-Institut Namibia. Owning the stage at the finale will be Namibian vocalist Ras Sheehama, who has been on the scene since Independence and has over the last 26 years established his distinctive style of socio-political criticism through a soothing voice. His diverse repertoire and fame has spread across Africa and abroad and this is a show not to be missed. Also on stage will be The Monkey Nuts from Zimbabwe, spicing up the concert with their experimental and alternative style of Hip-Hop that also combines native Chimurenga rhythms with electronic sounds and ambient tones. Meaning ‘liberation’ in Shona, Chimurenga is a genre that played a vital role in Zimbabwe’s liberation struggle. It was used to mobilise the masses in the fight for economic, social and political freedom. Now 37 years later, the young trio from Harare combines the intrinsic style of call-and-response with modern beats, and are known for their innovative approach to the art. The NUTS 2017 Finale at the Goethe-Institut Namibia starts at 19h00 on Friday and entrance is free. Legend… Ras Sheehama, one of the stars at the final concert of Night Under The Stars this Friday. Tuku delivers topnotch performance at Awesome 2017 show Pinehas Nakaziko Windhoek At the age of 65 years old, Zimbabwean music guru Oliver ‘Tuku’ Mtukudzi showed that he remains on top of his game, and is still one of the biggest musicians in the land, with the experience to deliver flawless acts on big stages. Known for some of his hit songs Todii, Ndagarwa Nhaka, Neria, Dzoka Uyamwe, Tuku was the international artist invited to headline the Awesome 2017 End Year bash, hosted at the new City of Windhoek parking area, and attended by hundreds of festivalgoers. He rendered a lively and heartwarming performance, that left some revellers in ecstasy. The concert also saw two other artists from Zimbabwe, Junior T and Ngoni, who both did not disappoint, as the guests were dancing and singing along to their music. The night could not be better with local artist Oteya setting the stage on fire with her brand new songs, Unconditional Love and Pata Pata, all performed live On form… Oliver Mtukudzi performing live at the Awesome 2017 show.

The stage killers, PDK, also delivered amazing performances, introducing a different dance style on their song Moko and Kempu. Diop gave her best on the Oviritje genre with the song Bala Bala.
