After a well-attended but partly disturbed ‘Fill Up Kuisebmond’ show early this year, South African recording artist Cassper Nyovest returns once again the Namibia, but this time to light up the Ramatex building this Saturday.
Upon announcing the tour dates that included the ‘City of Many Faces,’ Cassper revealed that the tour is inspired by a phone he recently released with AG Mobile and will be centred around his latest album.
“We (are) making history again with my album tour and I’m starting at home on the 27th of May! Maftown! You need to come see this! It’s a show designed around the actual album and it’s inspired by the phone I just dropped with AG Mobile. This is not a party! It’s a concert! I just want to give you guys quality. You need to come see it!” he wrote on Instagram some time ago. The Doc Shebeleza rapper has also promised to hold meet and greets with anyone who buys, or has bought, his phone and that they will be given free entrance to the shows.
Namibians were last offered a glimpse of the living testimony of Nyovest’s talent when he filled up Kuisebmond Stadium jiving to songs like ‘Doc Shebeleza’ and ‘Gusheshe.’ The show also featured a few hiccups with gunshot in the crowd forcing the ‘Mama I Made It’ architect to duck for safety.
Organiser Knowledge Ipinge this week sent out a press statement encouraging fans to come out in large numbers to Ramatex and not to question security as that is sorted this time around.
“The maximum safety of every community member who will be attending Cassper Nyovest’s Refiloe Album Tour Concert on Saturday, the 30th of July 2016 at Ramatex in Windhoek will be our chief priority.
“Thus, it is with the above in mind that all security personnel will be overseen by a renowned Special Events Security Company with a back catalogue of references in similar high profiled events. Copies of accreditation and training certification related to Event Safety of the Special Events Security Company has been thoroughly reviewed. We also acquired the services of Inter Africa Security Services to provide us with guards and in addition the Namibian Police will add more value in matters related to crime prevention and traffic policing,” said Ipinge in a safety-assuring statement.
Nyovest, real name Refiloe Maele Phoolo produced his debut album ‘Tsholofelo’ in July 2014. He is currently signed to his own independent label and media company, Family Tree.
He comes to Namibia again as part of his nationwide album ‘Refiloe’ tour which kicked off in his hometown on May 27. Tickets for the concert are available at Antonio Arts in Windhoek and Computicket outlets countrywide for only N$ 150 for General Access and 1500 for VIP.
