New??

Laugh so I stepped out side of my comfort zone last night, tried something I don’t normally do and it was not that bad.

Let me take you back..
I met this guy on snapchat, don’t know how we ended up following each other but it happened.

We had this on and off chat situation on snap which was cool and all but the days we had no credit meant no chatting.

I braved up and gave my number and asked for his number, for some reason I felt at ease with him.

The on and off chatting still continued but on whatsapp this time.

Seems the like last relationship he was in real did a number on him to the point that he believes being alone is much better than being in another situation that may leave him in pieces again. I don’t blame him at all for thinking like that because love is like an ocean , you never really sure how deep it is till you get into the water. At first the water may be cold but it does not mean the water will not warm up later because water is like love no place to hold on to.

I have been asking to meet him for sometime now, seeing that we both are in Windhoek. Surprisingly when I ask yesterday if I could come over for dinner he said yes, for a moment I thought he was joking *laugh * but he was not after all.

Let’s get into last night
So I arrived at his place and it was not that weird at all because I’m super shy when I first meet someone for the first time but this time was completely different.

Not sure if it’s the fact that he made me feel at easy or his silly jokes that got me talking alot last night.

He told me what kind of music he listens to luckily we almost got the same taste in music but on the movie scene he like actions, horror films which I don’t like at all I’m more of romantic comedy kind of a guy but will take a series over a movie anytime.

The best part of the night was his cooking, it was not too bad at all.

That moments when we would just look at each other and start laughing for not reason.

Like all good things the night had to sadly come to an end. Getting a cab was just impossible, the wait was just way too long and it was cold last night but having him wait with me was crazy fun his jokes were just the ones.

Like the good boy I am I ended the night with a big tight hug.

I’m a little confused cause we have not talked since last night but maybe he his busy at work.

It’s hard to tell his emotions.

I’m sure what I’m feeling at the moment,  just to early to say anything on that now.

That was my about last night.

Music

The Moment has arrived

For the last month we have been eating and talking Namibian music because of the Namibian Annual Music Awards 2017, artists, journalists and radio presenters have been campaigning like never before, the whole process was exciting for all involved. The feeling of not knowing if you have done enough or if people really voted for you like they have said is so nerve wrecking.

Most certainly I also voted for my favorites like crazy and just hope they remember me when they drop their winning words that night.

As much as the Namibian Annual Music Awards celebrate artists and their music, we should not forget the role radio stations and newspapers play in building the music industry. It’s satisfactory enough that there are categories for ‘best entertainment journalists’ and ‘radio DJ of the year’ but NAMA organisers should look into creating categories for radio stations that play the most local music and that create opportunities for local artists in terms of free interviews, this will push radio stations in the country to focus more on Namibian music also. The same applies for print media as well. This way we can expect more stories from upcoming artists, the already establish ones and allowing journalists to tell creative stories about Namibian music. This will in turn create healthy competition and it’s just a heads up for the Namas organizers to take up and look into.

When I saw the list of artists who will be performing at the awards I was like Yes! New faces, new voices, a couple of old ones, I love the whole mix up of performers for this year, particularly the all-female element. Looking forward to Adora’s first Namas solo performance, Doris gives me life can’t wait to see what she brings to the NAMA stage and lastly the lady that killed it last year Female Donkey. We have another reunion on the NAMA stage this year Raphael & Pele. These guy were one of the reason I love ma // music, truly hope they will burn down the stage with their electrifying dance moves.

 

By now the nervous have kicked in. The moment is officially here just make sure you look your best and most importantly you have tons of fun. Remember to network because that is what the NAMA event  is about making connection, finding love and making money.

 

To all nominates you are all winners, *laugh* but for real it’s not the number of awards that define your worth but the long lasting impact your work had on people.

Let’s celebrate Namibian Music this weekend like never before, by the way what is the theme for this year’s award if you know tweet it to me @Joe1orr.
