PDK: Stop piracy you are killing us

PDK have pleaded with fans to stop pirating music because it’s “killing” the industry. The group tweeted to fans and urged them to support local artists and to buy their CDs.

“Guys learn to support by buying CDs & the better term would be if you buy yourself 1 please let us knw where to buy ours,” they tweeted.

The group made up of Patrick, Dion and Kamtonyo (PDK) said they work too hard to provide for their families and have sacrificed a lot and people should stop pirating their music.

PDK have been in the music business for more than 10 years now and are about to release their new album.

“Come on guys we worked hard to making this jams so we could inspire, feed our families, help ourselves without resorting to a life of crime. U are killing US,” said PDK.

Piracy is a huge problem around the world and it affects the entertainment industry too in Namibia. King Tee Dee and Shitana are one of the most prolific artists advocating against piracy in Namibia. In 2015 King Tee Dee had confiscated up to nine music jukeboxes from their owners in Katutura’s Eveline Street, after he found that the machines were loaded with his music without a copyright license. King Tee Dee, real name Martin Morocky, asked the owners of the confiscated machines to pay a penalty of N$15 000 each as a pre-condition for the return of their machines. Shitana was arrested in 2017 for impersonating a police officer after he went around shebeens in Walvis while collecting money from shebeen owners who were playing his music on their jukeboxes without a copyright license from him.
