In a joint statement, King Tee Dee’s Mshasho Records and sponsor Standard Bank announced that a decision was taken in the best interest of the health of Namibians to postpone the ‘Standard Bank 09 Music Festival’ (SB09MF).

The event was launched in the capital in March, with much hope and anticipation that the Covid-19 outbreak would have eased by this month. However, Mshasho management has opted to prioritise the health and safety of Namibian lives and decided to postpone the event until the pandemic is brought under control.

King Tee Dee expressed his gratitude to his fans for always supporting his initiatives.

“As much as we would have loved to host the event and bring a sense of unity during this very difficult time we are facing, it was the only decision to make. We would be really irresponsible to host the event during this time and possibly run the risk of compromising the quality and high standards set over the past two years.

“Mshasho Records has always been about going a notch higher than the previous event, and this would be injustice to the brand and our fans,” he noted.

The musician assured fans that tickets will be refunded.

Mshasho Records said it looks forward to the next event, which will surely surpass expectations, and cautioned everyone to take all safety measures, as stipulated by government, seriously. Further details about next event will be announced in due time through various media channels.

Unity through celebration

Dubbed one of the biggest music events on the local entertainment calendar, this festival has in the past attracted over 20 000 music lovers and has created a sense of unity through the celebration of Namibian artists and sports through its seven-a-side soccer tournament.

It has also seen collaborations with foreign artists, including Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz, during its first edition held on 29 September 2018.

Apart from providing high level entertainment, the music event has in the past benefitted local small- and medium-sized enterprises as well as suppliers while creating income-generating opportunities for young Namibians.
