One of Rundu's finest Afro-pop and hip-hop musicians, Lukas Thomas, better known by his stage name M-Gee,expects to release his fourth studio album later this year.

Thomas, who hails from Rundu's Sauyemwa location, talked to tjil about his plans for the year, including his next album which he promises, will be a complete package for his fans.

Thomas this month released a music video of his latest hit song, 'Chokwelate'. He added that a new track titled 'Ngomulitundirapo' will be released early next month.

“My fans should look out for the 'Chokwelate' video and a new song titled 'Ngomuritundirapo'. Music is my passion and I always strive to give my fans the best of me,” he said.

Thomas said he worked with professional music producers from Rundu and Windhoek on the new album to give music fans a product they would enjoy listening to.

The 'Wanapwire' hit-maker said the aim is to make good music, put the town of Rundu on the map, and take the music industry by storm.

His previous albums, 'First Page', 'Moments in Life' and 'Sikira Epampa', were well received and the positive response motivated him to keep going.

However,Thomas also used the opportunity to complain about challengesartists in Rundu are facing.

He charged that event organisers show little respect to local musicians and expect them to perform free of charge, while the same people are willing to spend money on artists from other regions.

“Artistsat Rundu are not respected and I hope the mindset of people expecting us to perform for free changes,” he said.

Another challenge is a lack of entertainment facilities in the region. Most shows are staged at bars or private venues that are costly to rent.

Thomas said music piracy is depriving artists of an income, adding that some musicians have given up because their work is not respected.

Thomas called upon the police and Nascamtostep up their anti-piracy efforts.

“Piracy is a big concern for us as artists in the Kavango regions. We hope that the law enforcement agencies will come on board,” he said.

Thomassaid at the moment there is no music shop in the Kavango regions where artists can market their albums.

Apart from music, Thomas also has a clothing line named M-Gee. Interested parties can contact him on his social media accounts.
