Legendary reggae artist Ras Sheehama who has been in the music industry for more than two decades has come out to say that the Government need to step in and support Namibian musicians.

Speaking to Vibe, Ras Sheehama said, there is a need to invest in local talent annually as the majority of the young generation finds comfort in arts after failing to gain some good points in high school to make it to tertiary level.

“The government need to start investing in entertainment, cooperate companies should find interest in uplifting the industry. Even if it’s just to avail a hall with all necessary equipment that instrumentalists can use. Obviously, there should be a small fee charged for maintenance but it will help a lot of people,” he suggested.

Ras Sheehama further expressed disappointment in the Arts council saying that people that are currently put in charge are wrong people at the wrong place.
