Industry Loop: The game is changing!

Isn’t it amazing how the wheels have turned on the old guard in the entertainment industry? Take nothing away from the OGs; they have our childhood memories embedded. We will forever be grateful for the beautiful times where we use to beg them for autographs and hang onto their every word.

Industry Loop: No to  COVERS! 

I am not comfortable with established artists doing covers or skits on international songs. It just does not make any sense. I have seen repeatedly how some Namibian artists upload covers of international songs to their channels on YouTube. As if, you are crying out to be discovered. When and if you are discovered, let it be for your original songs. Not because of some cover you did.

Industry Loop: Respect theatre!

I’ve written about this before but it seems my pleas are being flatly ignored. Etiquette needs to be followed with theatre. It’s really just common sense. As a functioning adult there are some stuff that one should just know are wrong like answering a call in the middle of a theatre production. Which in case you still don’t see why that would be a problem, causes distraction on all ends.

Mariental library embarks on career guidance programme

WINDHOEK- The Mariental Public Library has embarked on a new programme titled Life after Grade 12.    The idea initiated last year by Letta Shivute, the librarian, is to inform and advice learners about different study fields, and different jobs in the market. Shivute came up with this initiative when she noticed that learners who came to do online applications to different universities last year, were just applying for almost the same study fields, revealing a lack of information on different career choices. Shivute thus thought it fit to expose the learners to different career choices.
