LUDERITZ, 26 MAR (NAMPA) Award winning Namibian artist 'Gazza' and South African DJ 'Heavy K' gave an entertaining performance at the Lüderitz Sports Stadium Saturday night as part of the first ever Harders Cup football tournament and Music Bash.
Gazza - real name Lazarus Shimmi - and Mkhululi Siqula or Heavy K were the headline artists at the event, which also featured upcoming and local artists Bonz, S-man and Chester.
DJ Alba, Namibias top female music DJ, was the main lady on the decks and made sure that the crowd was entertained with her solid mixing skills.
The event was attended by close to 3 000 music lovers who danced into the wee hours of the morning.
The Master of Ceremony for the night was Mitchell Mimi Abrahams.
S-man, the town's favourite who was backed up by Bonz warmed up the stage with a solid performance.
He kept the crowd on its feet with his old and new hits, and took time to sample some of his upcoming music.
Bonz did not disappoint either when given the opportunity to deliver his own solo work, as he entertained the crowd with his slick dance moves.
Up next was Chester and the Mshasho artist did not disappoint as he belted out hit after hit.
When Gazza took to the stage, the Buchters, as people from Lüderitz are commonly referred to, could not contain their joy as they joined the multiple award winning artist in singing some of his old hits like Kick it and 'Karandu.
He closed off with the all-time crowd favourite Piki Piki.
When Heavy K came on stage, the crowd screamed with delight as he displayed his mixing skills.
Though he did not mix any local tracks, he proved to be a genius on the decks with his song selection, mixing of house music and hip hop, integration of live artists as well as his ability to engage the crowd during his set.
As he left the stage, the crowd could not contain themselves and asked for more.
The 2017 Harders Music Bash was launched on 29 January with the Harders Football Tournament, which will now become an annual occurrence.
The event aims to allow the youth of the town to display their talents.
