Remember The Eagle (RTE) Records is undoubtedly one of the most talked about and fairly controversial music labels in Namibia.
The labels short ride to the top after signing some of the most popular musicians in the country at the time is a testimony that founder Ennio Hamutenya wanted to put Namibian music on the global and continental front. But all things that glitter is not gold and after a short tenure at the record label the artists that were signed that include the likes of Dj Spuzza, Chesta House Prince, Stanzo, Kurzca and Mega all left or were dropped by RTE.
Hamutenya has since told unwrap.online that his upcoming documentary will reveal the truth about all the controversy that occurred.
“Expect the truth about RTE Records. The music, the personal, the everything unseen. You can expect to finally hear the truth of all the controversy,” Hamutenya said.
He added that the trailer will be released soon and that the public should expect a premiere at local cinemas as well as on Netflix.
Moreover Hamutenya said that RTE Records will soon announce its transformation as the mother of all record labels in Namibia.
“RTE Records is the going to be the government of Namibian music. We have jointly established a system that will allow the local artists in large numbers from all corners of the country to finally be making money off their music locally. Using their talent to actually feed their families. Royalties are barely seen in Namibia. Let’s give all musicians a chance to live off their music,” he said.
Hamutenya also said that he aims at bridging Namibian art to universal deals.
“The gate to the global music world with our partnerships in place for those who can prove, not only their music ability but the right mentality to make it globally,” he said.
