The first edition of the tour will conclude at Gobabis and Rehoboth this weekend. “We are performing in Gobabis at Boksie's Carwash on Friday (today) and in Rehoboth at Club Quantum on Saturday, 31 August,” shared PhredGot1.

Tour de Augustus is an initiative started by Adora, PhredGot1, Mulberry, Tulisan and FutureIsGiggz. It was initiated with the purpose of being an annual tour slated for the month of August where a group of artists tour Namibia.

“Our focus is to bring together fans who love local music as our line-up is made up of artists from various music genres including kwaito, Afro-pop, hip-hop, and township disco,” said PhredGot1.

Speaking to tjil, Adora Kisting mentioned that as usual her team tries to slot in new and fresh elements into their sets. “As a performer I like to take my crowd on a journey. It is going to be nostalgic so be prepared to be taken down memory lane.

“People should also expect the usual dance and groove vibes,” said Adora Kisting. Another artist on the line-up FutureIsGiggz who recently lost all his music after robbers broke into his house on Sunday, but he promised to deliver a spectacular performance.

“I almost lost my life so from now on whatever that I am going to do, I am going to give it my all and do it like it is my last time,” said FutureIsGiggz.
