This issue is the representation of the trust and love I have for those fighting to get to a level they've dreamt about all their lives.
This issue is my way of saying I believe in and see all the big dreamers, entertainment culture enthusiasts and game changers out there. It seemed impossible to many when Gazza announced that he was going to hit a million views with his hit song Chelete, yet he did.
Not only that, he has demonstrated the possibility of Namibian artists achieving greater things with hard work, dedication and the support of Namibian people. He covers this issue as he shares the success of his 12th studio album Misunderstood.
As I write these words and reflect back on the first few months of 2019, it is clear that big things have happened for me personally as well as the entertainment industry. Personally, because if you are reading this, that means my first tjil made it to the shelves in stores and the streets. Industry-wise there has been a paradigm shift in the music and entertainment scene.
I am talking about major moves made by artists and other creatives in the entertainment spectrum. From successful festivals, launching reality shows and branching out into sustainable avenues. It is a beautiful thing to witness; particularly that the focus is on young people investing in their craft. That is where the Victory Fest news story comes in. Victory Fest is an annual event bringing the community of gospel music enthusiasts together and is organised by young people - Franklin Newman and Dee'aa. In addition to the stories mentioned above, tjil still hits you up with best exclusive entertainment news stories and features. Some of these stories include the NAM Comedy Circle, a profile on Gina Jeans and the release of ML's independence album. We also feature the likes of Adora, DJ Dreas and POM Couture. There are other stories I'm not going to ramble on about here because I'd like to give you the experience of deciphering them yourself. Enough said I promise you that you will enjoy reading this edition and the next issue will even be bigger. And now, let's begin shall we?
