Musicians Unite for President’s Grand Finale Concert

. . . That man never lied – King Tee Dee

In a musical tribute that lasted seven hours at Independence Arena in Windhoek on Wednesday, more than 35 local artists poured out their heartfelt tributes to president Hage Geingob.

The event featured a diverse line-up of singers, dancers, poets and local choirs, drawing a large crowd from the community, despite rain in the capital.

Renowned musicians Big Ben, Gazza, King Tee Dee, DJ Siya, DJ Vuyo, Ras Sheehama, Ugly Creatures, Yeezir, Female Donkey, Jericho and others took to the stage, delivering emotional performances.

During his performance, King Tee Dee recalled a personal encounter with Geingob, describing his support and encouragement when he was the minister of trade.

“I do not know where he got my number from. That man never lied, and everything he did was for your good,” he said.
He said everyone will remember Geingob.

“Yes, memories will be ther.

Hage was not an Owambo or Herero, and he saw no colour. Everything he did, he did for us. Check the Constitution. You love him when he is gone,” he said.

King Tee Dee praised Geingob for his inclusiveness.

Many artists expressed gratitude for Geingob’s genuine love for music and his readiness to attend concerts.

This has served as a source of inspiration in the entertainment industry, he said.

Gospel artist D-Naff highlighted the late president’s consistent presence at music events, emphasising his unwavering support of musicians.

“He loved music. He was always part of us. Everywhere there was music he would go and do his moves,” he said.

Tony the Poet from Nam Gospel said Geingob’s legacy would continue through poetry and music.

“He loved art, and he loved music, so we are just here to celebrate. Let’s all have peace and as much as we are mourning we are celebrating the good life he lived,” he said.

Attendees like Defney Tshabalala emphasised Geingob’s role as a father figure.

Describing the late president as a “people’s person”, she extended her heartfelt condolences to the family and the nation, underlining the profound impact Geingob had on individuals as a leader and mentor.

“We have lost a father, and it feels really personal, because he was a people’s president.

Condolences to the family, the children and the entire nation,” she said. –
