Afro-pop artist Dama Monique was last Saturday seen performing for Oshakati residents in front of Metro as a guest of Namib Mills during the launch of a Land Cruiser competition in celebration of Top Score’s 40th anniversary.
Although the event was not so much well attended, and many members of the public did not want to come closer to the tent where the activities were taking place (for fear of being seen to gatecrash an event where dinner tables were laid), Dama Monique had a blast with the mic for invited guests, Top Score consumers and onlookers.
Later joined by her dancer who went by the name of Booty, it was an electrifying performance by Dama Monique, so that some table manner protocols went unobserved as guests strained their heads over their plates to have a look at the performer.
The event was attended by the Mayor of Oshakati Mr Leonard Hango, Oshakati West regional councilor Mr Martin Aram, and other dignitaries. But mostly employees of Namib Mills were well represented.
With Mr Remind Ekandjo, well known as DJ Remind, as the MCee of the event, although it was an event to celebrate a maize meal product brand, still it was an event of note on the calendar of northern Namibia where entertainment is concerned.
Dama Monique started off with her ‘Uudhigu kom’tima’, which is a song expressing the problems most people experience in daily life such as inadequate food as a result of unemployment.
For that reason, Dama Monique said, Namib Mills’ Top Score brand was there to meet halfway those who have ‘uudhigu kom’tima’ where the need for maize meal pap is concerned.
