Gazza Milli Concert – how it went down!

09 August 2019 | Art and Entertainment

As the official celebration for reaching a million views on YouTube with his hit-song Chelete, Gazza in partnership with Windhoek Draught, hosted the Gazza Milli Concert at Sam Nujoma Stadium last Saturday.

Definitely one of the biggest music concerts hosted in the country, thousands of music fans flocked to Katutura to celebrate Gazza along with a superb line-up of other Namibian musicians, as well as artists from other African countries. Although international acts held it down, it was definitely the artists from Namibia who seemed to make the crowd give the biggest roar. Gates opened at 10:00 and performances kicked off at around 14:00 with the hip-hop group MIG opening the show. Haf, Che Ulenga and NSK were the hosts of the concert, who all did a spectacular job keeping the crowd entertained in between sets. Sunny Boy's set was nostalgic; the Hikwa pioneer got the crowd screaming the lyrics to the classic Koko. Kp Illest jumped on a while after Sunny Boy and blew the crowd away, performing his hit track Okay Okay.

Other performers included Matongo Family, Teqla, King Tee Dee, Lioness, Emtee, B-Red, Proffessor, Oteya, Jeiyo, Ngai, Blvc Boxxx and more. Closing the show was Gazza himself. He had an electric performance filled with killer dance moves to rock the fans as they kept on chanting his name. He roped in King Tee Dee at some point and the two performed their old songs together, a defining moment for Namibian music.

In an open letter thanking Namibia for supporting him Gazza shared that he is aware that this level of support is not new, saying that Namibians from all walks of life have carried him on their shoulders for many years. “I remain immensely grateful for the support, the prayers and the encouragement my people continue to give me.

“I looked out and over the Sam Nujoma Stadium and watched as thousands of Namibians came out to support me in pushing boundaries and bringing my vision to life,” said Gazza.
