ELEMOTHO Gaalelekwe is set to receive a Lifetime Achiever Award from the Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) on Friday, 28 April.
The NAMAs, which is slated for Walvis Bay this year, is divided into two events – the Friday night industry awards and the Saturday night main show
Elemotho is a remarkable star, who has been a mainstay of the Namibian music industry since 1997.
He has, over the years, gained national and international recognition.
Elemotho has performed extensively across Africa and Europe, extending the reach of his music to a much wider audience than the Land of the Brave.
His deep and diverse songs give food for thought, and are highly appreciated by music lovers.
In 2006, his international career gained further momentum, when he was invited to perform at the Durban Awesome Africa Music Festival.
He also participated in the Fourth African Movie Festival in Tarifa, Spain, which led to a one two-month Spanish tour, where he played at international festivals such as Territorios in Seville and Festizaje in Jaen.
“We are glad and proud to confer this special award to a great and deserving artist; a true artist that does African contemporary music and is celebrated across Namibia, Africa and Europe,” said NAMAs Executive Chairman, Tim Ekandjo.
Ekandjo added that local music is not something that started recently, but that Namibians have been dancing to their very own contemporary songs since the 1990s, and that Elemotho is one of the artistically gifted and talented artists that had made this possible.
