Fari Bantuson mentioned that this album seeks to encourage their listeners to strengthen their faith and remember that no matter how hard a situation is, you have to strive to do better.
He added that this album is also a reminder to people to not forget to be grateful when God answers their prayers.
“Often people stop praying when they receive the blessings they have been praying for; but it should not be like that. Just change the prayer to thank you.
“Don't be blinded by the blessings, continue to say your grace.
Most importantly we want to remind our leaders that when you get on top of the mountain, you are not there to be seen but for you to be see and help those behind you,” added Fari Bantuson.
Omidi D'Afrique maintains that they want to reach the masses with this album by performing outside Windhoek and ultimately out of the country more often.
“We believe we spread positive message through our music and the last four albums were mostly marketed in Windhoek and Walvis Bay because of the lack of resources, however we want to spread our wings with this album and reach as many people as we can.”
Keep The Fire Burning: Don't be Blinded by the Smoke has 11 songs and features Exit.
