Matongo Family shares ultimate throwback video

Matongo Family took us back in time with their first ever televised performance for Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) in 1999.

The performance was televised for the NBC Music Makers Competition. The trio is made up of Strauss Lunyangwe (Stravo), Arthur Nanub (Damara Dik Ding) and Themba Matongo and they are all known for belting out classic hits that had many Namibians in jubilation.

In the throwback video a young Matongo family cast performs their song titled Makiti wearing black, yellow and orange overalls all the while giving a well choreographed dance.

We are not sure if they knew it back in 1999 but all three artists would actually become a part of one of the most iconic music groups in Namibia. Individually at least two of the groups members, Damara Dik Ding and Stravo went on to make a success of their careers as solo artists.

The group was dismantled for 10 years until they recently reunited and have even released new music together.

Damara Dik Ding also shared the throwback performance on his Facebook fans and thanked fans for suppporting the Matongo Family group. “Loving the journey. Thank you.” he shared.
