WITH Ndilimani Cultural Troupe having dominated the local revolutionary music scene for years, telling stories of the struggle for independence, they now face fierce competition from a rejuvenated Dr Agostinho Neto Revolutionary Troupe.
The Dr Agostinho Neto Revolutionary Troupe says its music is about encouraging unity and prosperity among the Namibian nation and further praising the Government and the work it has done since independence.
Speaking to Confidente the founder of the troupe Nkrumah Mushelenga said the One Namibia One Nation part 3 will be a six-track album and it will be launched in December.
Even though the songs in the album are not necessarily about the liberation struggle, One Namibia One Nation parts 3 songs are praising the ruling SWAPO party and calling for the nation to unite and rally behind President Hage Geingob and First Lady Monica Geingos in ensuring the success of the Harambee Prosperity Plan.
The first two singles Mother Namibia and Harambee Harambee are out and Mushelenga explained that Mother Namibia is a song dedicated to the founding father of the Namibian nation, Dr. Sam Nujoma, former president Dr. Hifikepunye Pohamba who is the current patron of Namibia National Liberation Veterans’ Association, the First Lady and the current Government leader and the founder of Harambee Prosperity Plan, President Geingob.
The second track Harambee Harambee Mushelenga explained that it is expressing gratitude to Geingob for establishing the Harambee Prosperity Plan. This prosperity plan, Mushelenga said, is a national goal and plan that Namibian people can call their own.
Mushelenga added that “this inspiring album’s message is political” and that some of the songs in this album are also educational and entertaining for the young generation.
