PDK gets the last laugh

The trio of Patrick, Dion and Kamutonyo alias PDK had the last laugh at the Namibian Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) nomination ceremony last week, begging six nominations ending a bittersweet relationship with the awards in a fairytale style.

The group had over the years an uneasy relationship with NAMAs characterised by accusations of unfairness, disappointments and pure lack of interest in the national awards from the group’s former management but alas they are celebrating at last.

Our very first NAMA performance

In a rather revealing interview with unwrap.online, PDK summed up their fairytale story as coming at the right time and deserved.

“We are very excited. It’s been long overdue and finally, we are getting what we honestly feel we deserve. We’ve really worked hard, not only this past year but in our entire music career and it is a gratifying feeling to know that our efforts are not in vain,” they said.

Rather keen to focus on the positives picked last week and even more keen to bury the hatchet with the NAMAS, PDK is enthusiastic about their possibilities this year. 

” We can’t change the past but we can influence the present and change the future. We’re looking forward to every platform that not only allows us to showcase our talent but also appreciates us as artists,” they said.

Perhaps for the first time in a long time in their bittersweet relationship with the NAMAs, they genuinely feel this is their year to shine.

” Like all brands, marketing, research and implementation is important so we did that by finding our niche in the market focusing on our target audience within our industry by being true to us and as original as possible at a contemporary spectrum. We build a strong team of professional experts that supports our vision and now is just a matter of executing. We are also humbled by the fact that the international community is responding quite well, ” they said. 

The trio also told unwrap.online that they have a bigger vision for the future.
