Honouring Namibian fathers in the arts

Wilka Kayoko and Priscilla Mukokobi

Each year during the month of June a Sunday is set aside to commemorate the positive roles that men have on the upbringing of the younger generation.

UnWrap.online caught up with some artists and this is what fathers day means to them and how they are spending theirs special day.

Gazza
“This day means responsibility, hard work, and breaking generational poverty. Additionally, it is prideful to see how my blood line is expending and it gives me more reason to hustle.” He said
The Kwaito King had breakfast with his two boys and is looking to have lunch with them later in the afternoon.

Sunny Boy
“This day means everything to me. I live for my kids and they inspire me to be a better man. Fatherhood is an everyday Job and today I feel honoured to be a father” he said.
The balance hit maker will be spending his special day in studio working on his music to provide for his son and daughter.

Kamati Ekanda
“Today is a reminder of having given someone life and the responsibility that comes with it.”
The Shaambo musician took some of his time early today to remind his sons how to be respectful and to be examples in society.
The quality of a father can be seen in the goals,dreams,support,protection and aspirations he set not only for himself but for his family.

D-Naff
“Father’s day to me is a day celebrated worldwide to remember the roles that Father’s play in the lives of their kids. The meaning of a father to me is a hiding place,a place of comfort, a place were arms a wide open where I feel safe and protected. Furthermore, a father is a person who gives directions,support and vision to the children. His a pillar of life a care giver and a reflection of God.”

Elemotho

“Father’s Day is important as long we fathers understand the importance of our role as caregivers,guardians and protectors.And that also means acknowledging our relationships to our children and partners.If we as men don’t stand up to protect our women and sisters we have equally failed to uphold our responsibility as fathers and brothers. “

“Father means responsibility of home. A head man of home. A home without a father is mostly a broken. A father means a supportive pillar.”
