  • 04/12/17--16:00: Hitman feels feared
  • Hitman feels fearedHitman feels feared Former WBA lightweight world champion and current WBO Africa champion Paulus 'Hitman' Moses says almost everybody in the lightweight division fears fighting him.

    The boxer claims that he has challenged them all, but they don't want to risk getting into the ring with him because they want to protect their records.

    “Right now, I don't fear anybody in the lightweight division. I am super fit and can take on anybody, anytime, anywhere,” Moses says.

    Moses is now ranked sixth by the WBO and has an impressive record of 42 fights, 39 wins and 3 losses.

    Moses shot to fame when he snatched the WBA lightweight title from Yusuke Kobori in Japan in 2009 and narrowly lost to Ricky Burns for the WBO lightweight belt in 2012.

    Moses is promoted by MTC Sunshine Promotions under the watchful eye of Africa's foremost promoter, Nestor Tobias.

    “This is a challenge to boxing promoters, because we hardly get the people we want our boxers to face,” Tobias said recently.

    “Namibians are feared and that is why sometimes we end up just accepting these other offers.

    “It shows that our level of boxing in the country is right at the top,” Tobias said.

  • 04/12/17--16:00: Long-course season concludes
  • Long-course season concludesLong-course season concludes The fifth Bank Windhoek long-course gala and the annual Aquapentathlon for the 2016/17 swimming season was held last weekend at the Olympia pool.

    A total of 88 swimmers took part in the gala held on Friday, 7 April.

    Four clubs were represented: Aqua Swimming and Fitness Club (10 swimmers), Dolphins Swimming Club (67 swimmers), Marlins Swimming Club (one swimmer) and Namib Swim Academy (10 swimmers).

    “The support that swimming receives from Bank Windhoek for our long-course season cannot be overemphasised and appreciated,” said Jurie Badenhorst, public relations officer at the Namibian Swimming Union.

    “Coming to the end of the long-course season and with some of the swimmers returning from tours, while the elite swimmers are still on tour in the South African National Championships, and for which galas the swimmers would have peaked; the fact that no records were set and only 24% of the swimmers improved their personal best times is understandable,” Badenhorst said.



    The winners, second and third places in the Aquapentathlon Ludorum race were:

    Junior victor ludorum

    1. Mikah Burger 55

    2. Lian Ellis 53

    3. Oliver Durand 53

  • 04/12/17--16:00: Kavango West coach confident
  • Kavango West coach confidentKavango West coach confidentNewspaper Cup arrives The long-awaited The Namibian Newspaper Cup has plenty of talent for display in the coastal town. The Kavango West under-20 football team is better prepared to battle for honours at the 2017 The Namibian Newspaper Cup which gets under way at Swakopmund tomorrow.

    In 2014, Kavango won the Newspaper Cup at Tsumeb, defeating Oshana 2-1.

    Kavango West coach Mpareke Joseph Nxaba says the team has been in camp since February and they have finalised their squad of 20 players capable of representing the region to the fullest.

    “The expectations of the region are very clear, to win the cup, and that cannot be dismissed and the boys are aware of the work at hand.

    “Last time out we were one region when we won this cup and now we need to make our own mark on the competition. It won't be easy but the boys are fired up to represent the region,” Nxaba says.

    The coach however downplays the expectations and states that his team is going to the Easter weekend youth football festival to prove to all that they can play football.

    “We are going there to show that we can also play as a region and we need to focus on our game and take it easy and one game at a time. Last year at Rundu it was the second time for Kavango West and this time around, things will be different as have found our footing and can compete and we can play,” Nxaba says.

    Kavango West are in Group D, together with Khomas and neighbours Oshikoto.

    They will play their first game on Saturday at 11:45 against Oshikoto and then conclude their group-stage action against Khomas the same day at 19:15, with only the group winner advancing to the semi-finals.

    Hardap and Omusati will open the 2017 The Namibian Newspaper Cup tomorrow at 09:15 at the Vineta Sports Complex at Swakopmund.

    They form part of Group A, together with Oshana and Zambezi.

    Omaheke, Kunene, Kavango East and Erongo are in group B while Otjozondjupa, Ohangwena and

    //Karas complete Group C.

  • 04/12/17--16:00: Toure up for the cup
  • Toure up for the cupToure up for the cup Midfielder Yaya Toure is hoping Manchester City can avoid a trophy-less season by winning the FA Cup in May but insists the side remain focused on their Premier League campaign and Saturday's clash against Southampton.

    Fourth-placed City, who dropped out of the title race after losing to league leaders Chelsea earlier this month, face Arsenal in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on 23 April as they target a sixth victory in the tournament and first since 2011.

    “I want to win trophies. I hope we can lift something for us and the fans this year,” Toure told the club's website. “All this year, we've been fighting for something... The FA Cup is a big target for us this year. We're looking forward to it.”

    City travel to ninth-placed Southampton with two wins in their last five visits to St Mary's and will be eager to maintain their four-point cushion over fifth-placed Manchester United, who have a game in hand.

    “First of all, we have Southampton and then we'll see what happens,” the Ivorian said. “I'm the type of player that always wants to win.

    “In football, sometimes you can lose or draw. We want to always be at the top but we want to keep on going... We play Southampton and we'll try and win that game.”

  • 04/12/17--16:00: Blues face United
  • Blues face UnitedBlues face UnitedChelsea can handle big game – Desailly Old Trafford will be hosting log leaders Chelsea on Sunday in what is expected to be a thrilling encounter between the two English giants. Chelsea face a pair of season-defining fixtures in the next two weeks but former captain Marcel Desailly sees no reason for the Premier League leaders to feel daunted by the challenge that lies ahead.

    Chelsea remain on course for a domestic double and first travel to Manchester United on Sunday hoping to maintain a seven-point advantage in the league before taking on Tottenham Hotspur in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley six days later.

    “These two weeks are the key moments and games for Chelsea but they will make it. There's no reason why the players should shake in front of these various events,” Desailly, who won the FA Cup with Chelsea in 2000, told Sky Sports.

    “It's just that they have to finish correctly. The FA Cup is there against Tottenham, there are many major important games such as United this weekend, so you have to be careful.”

    Later this month, Chelsea will host Southampton before they embark on a tough away game to Everton, who have won their last seven league matches at Goodison Park.

    Chelsea finished 10th last season and Desailly felt the reintegration of Victor Moses in the squad and the additions of midfielder N'Golo Kante and wing back Marcos Alonso have been key to the club's change in fortunes.

    “When you look at last season where it was very difficult,” the 48-year-old added. “This year you have three new players: Kante, Alonso and Moses and you just change a little bit of the tactics, it's just an amazing season for Chelsea.

    Players under investigation for rapePlayers under investigation for rape Three Grenoble rugby players were put under formal investigation by a French examining magistrate on Tuesday night on suspicion of gang rape following a complaint by a 21-year-old woman, a judicial source said on Wednesday.

    Earlier, prosecutors issued a statement saying there was evidence that France's Loick Jammes, New Zealand's Rory Grice and Ireland's Denis Coulson had probably taken part “either as initiator or accomplice” in the crime.

    The woman told police on 12 March that she had been drugged and taken to a hotel in Bordeaux where she was raped after a French league game between clubs Bordeaux and Grenoble.

    Being placed under formal investigation in France is often the first step to a trial but it does not necessarily mean that the case will go to court.

    The three players were not thought to have been held in custody, but have been placed under restrictions which will require them to report regularly to French police until the case is resolved.

    Last month, a lawyer for Coulson denied the allegations and described the incident “as a night out between consenting adults”.

  • 04/12/17--16:00: Time for 'C'
  • Time for 'C'Time for 'C'Change of season is always difficult Supplementary vitamin C lessens the duration and symptoms of a common cold, helps delay or prevent cataracts, and supports healthy immune function. Vitamin C helps to repair and regenerate tissues, protect against heart disease, aid in the absorption of iron, prevent scurvy, and decrease total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and triglycerides. Research indicates that vitamin C may help protect against a variety of cancers by combating free radicals, and helping neutralise the effects of nitrites (preservatives found in some packaged foods that may raise the risk of certain forms of cancer). Deficiency symptoms include fatigue, muscle weakness, joint and muscle aches, bleeding gums, and leg rashes. Prolonged deficiency can cause scurvy, a rare but potentially severe illness.

    The recommended vitamin C daily allowance (RDA) for adults over age 19 is between 75 and 120mg a day while for children over the age of three, the dosage varies from 45 to 75mg a day.

    How do you get enough vitamin C from foods?

    Vitamin C is easy to get through foods, as many fruits and vegetables contain vitamin C. Good sources include apples, asparagus, berries, broccoli, cabbage, melons, cauliflower, citrus fruits (lemons, limes, oranges), kiwi, fortified foods, dark leafy greens, peppers (especially red bell peppers, which have among the highest per-serving vitamin C content), potatoes, and tomatoes. Try to get your vitamin C dosage from whole foods and whole-food supplements. In capsule form, the chemical compound of ascorbic acid cannot be absorbed without the correct balance of riboflavins which, to date, has not been established.

  • 04/12/17--16:00: Asbestos is still killing
  • Asbestos is still killingAsbestos is still killing People are still dying of cancer linked to asbestos, the US Centre for Disease Control says, despite decades of regulations meant to limit dangerous exposure.

    Starting in 1971, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in the United States has regulated how much asbestos workers can be exposed to, because it contains tiny fibres that can cause lung disease or cancer if they are swallowed or inhaled.

    The Environmental Protection Agency regulates asbestos too, setting requirements for inspecting, demolishing and renovating buildings that contain materials made with asbestos, like insulation, vinyl tiles, roofing, shingles and paint.

    But, a recent CDC analysis found that thousands of people are still dying each year from a type of cancer called malignant mesothelioma that is associated with inhaling asbestos fibres, even briefly or in small amounts. Even after decades of regulation, between 1999 and 2015 there were 45 221 mesothelioma deaths in the US The majority of those who died were men.

    The greatest increase is among people over 85 years old, who were likely exposed to asbestos many years ago. It can take anywhere from two to seven decades for mesothelioma to develop after a person inhales asbestos fibres. And early deaths among people 35 to 65 are down overall.

    But, investigators say, the fact that people younger than 55 are still dying of a disease linked to asbestos means that workers are still being exposed to dangerous levels of asbestos despite federal regulations.

    One source is asbestos that was originally installed years ago, and gets stirred up during a building renovation or a demolition project. People exposed in this way are sometimes referred to as the “third wave” of people with asbestos disease, as we have reported. The first two waves were asbestos miners and manufacturers, and then tradesmen, such as pipe fitters or shipbuilders.

    For example, the CDC researchers note that although there appears to be a general decline in asbestos on worksites between 1979 and 2003, “20% of air samples collected in the construction industry in 2003 for compliance purposes exceeded the OSHA permissible exposure limit [for asbestos].”

    And asbestos is still being used in new products. A report on the findings published this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association, notes “Asbestos production stopped in the United States in 2002, but it is imported into the country to produce chemicals used in manufacturing common items such as soap, fertilisers, and alkaline batteries.”

    More than 350 metric tons of the mineral were used in 2015 in the US, according to the US Geological Survey.

  • 04/12/17--16:00: In another class
  • In another classIn another classThe distance travelled with Mercedes-Benz Mercedes-Benz is synonymous with safety, luxury and advanced technology – need we say more? M + Z Motors has a long and illustrious history in the motor vehicle industry in Namibia. Established in 1936, they have the reputation as the approved supplier of Mercedes-Benz, smart, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Fiat Alfa in the passenger vehicles range and for commercial vehicles they represent the Mercedes-Benz, freightliner and FUSO range.

    Their focus is on customer satisfaction and service excellence regardless of whether you drive in the city, travel on business frequently, need a spacious family car or like to race in your spare time - the brands offered at M + Z provides existing and potential customers the right car for everyday use.



    One of their brands, Mercedes-Benz has always been driven by innovation to make driving safer.

    These innovations incorporate not only style but have shifted largely to electronic safety and assistance systems, geared to support drivers in everyday tasks while keeping them in control. “One of the earliest examples is anti-lock braking systems introduced in the late 1970s, followed by electronic stability programs in the '90s and a wider range of driver-assistance systems in the last decade,” says Aylin Lützow, M+Z Motors customer relations and marketing manager.”



    Here is a close look at the range of new assistance systems, explained in detail.



    Active Brake Assist

    This system detects objects in your way and warns before an impending crash, provides assistance when the driver initiates an emergency-braking situation – even applying the brakes automatically. How does it work? A 360-degree camera detects slower-moving or stationary traffic in your path and will initially warn you of objects that are in your way. “We unintentionally tested this feature while distracted for a second.” When the system detected a car stopping in front of us to turn right, the emergency warning tone chimed just as I looked up; I was able to slow the car and avoid a collision,” says Lützow.



    Active Blindspot Assist

    This is more than the annoying beep when a car approaches your blind spot. This system can actively steer you out of the path of the vehicle. A camera constantly monitors the approaching traffic behind you in either lane to your right and left. If you intentionally or unintentionally steer into the path of a vehicle overtaking you on either side, the system first emits a warning sound with a triangle flashing in the mirror. If this fails, the system will apply the brakes on one side of the car and bring you out of the collision path.



    Active Lane Keeping Assist

    A very descriptive name for a system that deals with the possibly of wandering out of your lane because for a fraction of a second, you weren't paying attention to driving. The capability is also a part of the semi-autonomous driving functions, allowing you to relax while in rush-hour traffic.



    Adaptive Highbeam Assist

    Instead of a conventional and rigid low- and high-beam setup, this system adjusts the headlamp range automatically. When driving at night, light sensors in the front detect the light beam of an oncoming car and automatically adjust the lights so as to not blind others. When the other car has passed, the system automatically switches to the best possible light output, making night driving safer.



    Attention Assist

    This often-overlooked system has been present in Mercedes-Benz cars for some time. It detects when driving behaviour indicates tiredness and sends an audible and visible warning signal suggesting a break. Within 15 minutes of the beginning of every journey, the on-board computer creates an individual driver profile using no less than 70 different measurables such as speed and acceleration, as well as using indicators and other control functions. A high-resolution sensor records steering input: If the system now detects a stronger deviation from the original profile, it emits a warning sign and suggests a break.



    Brake Assist System Plus

    Many accidents could be avoided if the driver in an emergency situation applied all the brake force possible and used the braking capacity of modern high-performance brakes. A stereo camera and a system of long-, medium- and short-range radar sensors monitor traffic and surroundings – now also in cross-traffic situations. The data from the camera and radar system are processed and the system analyses whether crossing traffic poses a risk. If the driver applies the brakes, BAS Plus can ensure that optimum brake pressure is applied.

    Car-to-X Communication

    This mobile-phone-supported exchange feeds information about obstacles detected by other cars' monitoring systems into a central database, which sends the data to cars travelling immediately behind. This effectively allows cars to see around bends, gaining valuable time to slow and potentially avoid a collision.



    Collision Prevention Assist Plus

    Using the stereo camera and radar, collision prevention assist plus monitors the distance to the car travelling directly ahead and displays a warning signal in the instrument cluster if the distance in relation to speed becomes too short. If that gap is closing too fast, there will be an additional intermittent tone. And if that gap gets close to critical range and the driver has switched the system on, brakes will be applied to prevent a rear-end collision.





    Distronic Plus with Steering Assist

    An adaptive cruise control that keeps your car at the desired speed or below in relation to traffic in front of you: steering assist now ensures the car stays in its lane. When distronic plus is activated, the car's radar system monitors traffic ahead and keeps a preset distance from slower cars in front.

    Has Kwaito music lost its grip and relevance?Has Kwaito music lost its grip and relevance? The death knell may have just been rung on kwaito. The SA Music Awards (SAMA) has for the first time in its history made public the complete list of entries and it does not look encouraging for the local genre.

    The entries have been vetted and are for nominations that will be announced on April 20 ahead of the ceremony scheduled for Sun City on May 25. The best Kwaito album category is languishing at a measly six albums while best dance album thrives with 27 and best rap boasts an impressive 25. Mdu Masilela, one of the pioneers of Kwaito, insisted that the genre was not dying, but admitted it looked gloomy. “The numbers are disappointing. I don't know what to say, but Kwaito is not dying. Maybe they are not recording it anymore and instead changing to hip-hop with a touch of Kwaito. We need more releases of the original sound,” he said.

    Kwaito veteran, Arthur Mafokate, had a different view. He believes that the problem dates back to past SAMA. “This category was manipulated by the major recording companies in the past. It did not reflect what was happening in the streets, and that is de-motivating. So the legends told others that there was no point in entering the awards.

    “Now that things have changed, we need to send the message for more artists to enter. I'm the chairman of independent record labels at RISA (Recording Industry of South Africa). Kwaito will never die; it doesn't depend on awards to survive.

    “It's a poor man's genre, the voice of the voiceless, unlike hip-hop where your rich father gives you money to record a demo. It's harder in Kwaito,” Mafokate said.

    Kwaito artist Danger, real name Mzi Tshomela, of Big Nuz which was crowned best Kwaito group at the SAMA, said the entertainment industry did not invest in young Kwaito artists anymore. “The industry is going to face a problem because recording labels don't give young artists who send their demos a chance.” He said although other categories were gaining momentum, artists like L'vovo and Professor were flying the Kwaito flag high.

    The submissions were made from 1 November 2016 to 30 January 2017. Leading the pack with most entries is the best collaboration category with 106. The best produced album category received 72 entries in diverse genres such as dance, gospel, rap, jazz and R&B while the best engineered album has 46. The best jazz album has 15 projects; best Maskandi album is sitting at 13, while the best traditional music album has 15. The best African artist category received six entries from Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Botswana.

    Architecture exhibition comes to NamibiaArchitecture exhibition comes to Namibia Archaeology of the future-the landscape of tomorrow An exciting exhibition by architects residing in Namibia which has been on display in Rome, Italy, since last year is coming to Namibia. The title of the exhibition was born when Italian architect Cinzia Abbate visited the Twyfelfontein Visitors' Centre, where she appreciated how a contemporary building could be inseparable from its context, ready to dissolve into its environment, thus becoming the archaeology of the future.

    Cinzia introduced Namibian architect Nina Maritz to Livio Sacchi in 2015, then president of the OAR (the Rome and Province Chamber of Architects), who expressed an interest in supporting an architectural exchange between Namibia and Italy. Maritz initiated a work group of interested members of the architectural community in Namibia, who compiled a synopsis of Namibian architecture, through research and the participation of members of the Namibia Institute of Architects who contributed project material.

    The exhibition comprises a snapshot of the current work of Namibian architects, placed in the context of history and location. It covers the influences of landscape, starting with the ancient geology of the country and travels through the different areas of the coast, hinterland, north and south. It considers cultural and material influences and ponders whether there can be a contemporary Namibian style. It looks at the most recent projects placed in urban and rural situations, and zooms in onto urban development in Windhoek. Faced with the legacy of apartheid and rapid urbanisation, the capital city is a microcosm of Namibian society, with architecture playing a role in various socio-economic spheres, from rich to poor, from private to public.

    This exhibition will be in the National Art Gallery of Namibia (NAGN) Main Gallery from 20 April until 6 May 2017.

  • 04/12/17--16:00: Amazonkies debut album fever
  • Amazonkies debut album feverAmazonkies debut album feverTolika to mentor youth The Ongwediva based Afro pop group, Amazonkies have indicated that they are planning to release their long awaited debut album next month. Tjil caught up with the hit makers of songs like Panga style, Nangula and Osembo who shared their musical journey that resulted in the birth of the 15-track album titled “Tolika.”

    Tolika is an Oshiwambo word with various meanings. According to Amazonkies interpretation, it is a warning to the youth that they will face the consequences of their actions.

    The group which was formed in 2010 has four members: Thomas Kanime, Fernando Iipumbu, Tuhafeni Haimbodi and Sackaria Elago.

    The members said they devoted nine months to work on 'Tolika' and they hope the achievement will be of a lifetime.

    Apart from being afro pop artists, the group said the album also caters for their fans who love kwaito, reggae and house tracks which will be featured on the album.

    Although it's their first album, Amazonkies said they do not see 'Tolika' as a debut album saying the fans have been expecting it for too long. Amazonkies fans have, throughout the waiting period been making incessant calls asking when the album would be released.

    “We are so happy and we are looking forward to the launch of our album. It was not easy but we never gave up and that is why most of the songs on the album are songs that encourage people. We are done with introducing ourselves with the singles we have released so far,” Kanime said.

    Elaborating more on the album, the group said most of the songs are about the challenges they faced while growing up as individuals and as a group and how they overcame the hurdles.

    “We have learnt that it's not easy working as a group because there will always be misunderstandings but growing up together, chilling together, going to church together and doing business together made us who we are and we are proud to call ourselves a team,” the group members said.

    “We are ready for the Namibian music industry; the question we ask each other is whether the Namibian people and Africa is ready for us.”

    Amazonkies recently signed a contract with Decent Africa, an event management company which will assist the group to release their album and marketing it.

    Owner of Decent Africa, Hyppoyt Shikukutu said the reason why he decided to assist Amazonkies is because they approached him for assistance and based on their determination to succeed, he decided to stretch out a helping hand.

    The contract between the two parties covers and ends with the sale of the Cd's but there is a possibility to extend it based on the outcome of the first assignment.

    Kanime on the other hand indicated that soon after the launch of their album they will go on a nationwide tour promoting the album.

    The official launch is planned to take place in Ongwediva.

  • 04/12/17--16:00: Luis goes animated
  • Luis goes animatedLuis goes animatedCombining culture, education and fun for Namibian children From modelling to hosting his own fashion week, Luis Munana doesn't seem to have any brakes as he keeps aiming for the skies and his latest work, is a children's programme. If you are a follower of internationally recognised model Luis Munana on social media you may have realised that he has been dropping hints of a kiddies programme, or if you are close enough to him, he'd be humming a tune with words Waka Waka Moo. The cat is finally out of the bag as it has been confirmed that the star is in the process of creating a children's programme, titled Waka Waka Moo.

    Luis said his inner child is still alive and on any given day he would prefer to sit in front of his television and watch cartoons. This is how he came up with the initiative of a kiddie's programme, inclusive of all Namibian languages, and with all the roles played by Namibians. How cool is that!



    Here is how it all began.

    tjil (T): Why are you starting this project?

    Luis (L): I saw my nieces and nephews watching cartoons on DStv and they would always repeat the words spoken and sing along to whatever it is they were watching. So it hit me, these kids could actually be watching cartoons in their own language, as well as English. They could be learning about their history, culture and so much more. We need to tell our own stories which can be consumed by our children. I also realised that so far all my projects have been for adults and I wanted to change that.



    T: Why did you choose the name Waka Waka Moo?

    L: Back in 2014 while in Big Brother Africa our very first task was to put together a musical. Our head of house selected all the musically gifted housemates to be part of her team and left me in a team with people who didn't really have a musical background. I took it upon myself to write the musical and script the play for everyone in my team. The odds were against us but somehow my team won! The musical was called “Waka Waka Moo”. It stuck with me and I decided to develop it into a kids programme because of how childish and silly our musical was based on the live animated characters. I started to believe in my abilities more as a writer and creative producer. So I went with it!



    T: Why do you feel there is a need to tell Namibian stories?

    L: Because the Namibian story is getting lost. As the years go by, the rich history gets lost and everything becomes about the West. It's about preserving the Namibian story by making it relevant, fun and exciting.



    T: What do you hope to achieve by launching a Namibian children's cartoon?

    L: A sense of originality. We are a nation of consumers. We need to start flipping the script by being a nation that creates. Let's make our own TV. It definitely brings back that Namibian pride! Why can't other countries look to us to buy cartoons or kiddies shows from us?



    T: What are some of the surprising things you've discovered about making a children's programme using puppets?

    L: I realised that even though it's a children's programme an adult can also relate due to the fact that it's a puppet speaking and not a human. The puppet brings a certain sense of humour which taps into the human creative side. It commands attention as opposed to a human-only interaction.



    T: Will it be a full Namibian team working on the project?

    L: For the first phase - yes! However there are certain elements of the show that cannot be done in Namibia because there aren't the skills here yet. We are looking to bring a mentor to train two Namibians who will execute it the way we want it. The programme is directed by a College of the Arts student, the puppet masters are local radio presenters and the animations will be made by three experts from Ghana and Canada respectively. All this and more will be announced in due course. In the long run it will definitely be a full Namibian team.



    T: Who will be making your puppets?

    L: At first we honestly looked to foreign markets to create the puppets. Then we thought about giving locals a chance. We tend to run overseas or cross borders to get things done without giving our locals a chance. We took a chance… the puppets are locally made and they look beautiful. We are just adding finishing touches to perfect them.



    T: Where will we be able to see this show?

    L: I am not at the liberty to disclose that yet due to contractual issues and finalisation. I also don't want to say it will be limited to certain TV stations. The first pilot series will be aired in Namibia. The long-term goal is to make Waka Waka Moo an African product and have it in countries like Angola, Zambia and have it in languages like Swahili as well. This is my passion. I have high hopes for it and the support I have been receiving so far is overwhelming.



    T: Have you found Waka Waka Moo characters already?

    L: We held auditions on 8 April. The turnout was overwhelming. Parents accompanied their children to the auditions. We even had children travel from Oshakati to audition. Furthermore, there is a request to host auditions in other regions to give as many Namibian children the opportunity to be part of the Waka Waka Moo show. The children had the option to audition for the roles of main host, singers, dancers, extras and voice-over artists. The names of successful children will be released month-end. I would like to work with as many children as possible so we are trying to create many roles so that the majority of the children who auditioned get a cameo on the show even if it's just on an episode.



    T: When will it launch?

    L: We are looking to launch in July the latest.

    Established artists versus upcoming artistsEstablished artists versus upcoming artists People in the industry tend to say that upcoming artists should look up to the established artists and learn from them but the question remains; are the established artists ready to assist? Very few established artists take on that extra duty to help and groom upcoming artists even if it’s by mentoring or guiding them on how to grow in the industry. I am yet to see that because currently, everyone is for themselves in the industry. But also the upcoming artists believe they are too smart and better than the established ones and don’t need their help... let me school you on this. The established artists have been around for years and tested the ends of time. They have gone through all the bad and good and now know how to survive in this jungle called entertainment industry. You, the upcoming artists have just started and trust me; you have no idea what’s awaiting you in the industry. Some people will help you succeed, some will use you and some will plot your failure. If you don’t choose the correct team that understands your dream and want to be part of your journey, and then trust me, they will make you sink. As for the established, you will lose nothing by helping the upcoming artists and sharing the tricks in the industry... It’s about time we listen to both sides and grow this industry.

  • 04/12/17--16:00: Ease the pressure
  • Ease the pressureEase the pressure We often hear people tell us we should “let go” when we are faced with heartaches or disappointments in life. For me, letting go has always been an invitation to relinquish and absolve myself from sad or difficult experiences. Letting go gives you the opportunity to accept your reality and to let go of the meaningless fortunes dealt to you by life and karma.

    As you mature and get wiser, you realise that attaching yourself to situations that are out of your control is like slowly tightening a noose around your neck. Don’t be paralysed by things you cannot accept and just understand that once in a while you have to let go of yourself and that at times a few misfortunes come along your way. As we grow up, we often become devoted to how we think our life should be, and we create beliefs around universal truths. When we stop expecting life to be perfect, for people to be the best they can be, we are no longer holding ourselves down with things that are out of our control. We would have grown and matured enough to appreciate both life and the people in our lives for what and who they are.

    It is quite hard to move on and accept the things we go through, but once we do, we feel free from the emotional shackles that were holding us back and we realise very soon it was the best decision we ever made. Don’t be hard on yourself and as often as you can, ease the pressure that you get from this thing called life. It is going to be worth it.

    The most challenging and demanding part about growing up is letting go and moving away from our comfort zones and moving on to unfamiliar and new territory. Accurate and treasured wisdom is deeply concentrated in accepting what is, letting go of what was and having faith in what could be. Letting go is all about being optimistic and eager about what the future holds for you and not about how the future will be for you.

    Make life easier for you, spread your love, care about those who matter most to you, communicate freely, be open with people you need closure with and stop reminding yourself about how unfortunate you are. You are blessed and you should know it, there are people who have been through worse situations compared to yours.
