Tate Buti’s 30 cents of advice in COVID -19 era

By Emilie Shimbali

Seasoned Namibian music artist, Tate Buti has called for the artist to think outside the box in an era where income has been eroded by the coronavirus.

A man of few words, especially when it comes to English expressions, Tate Buti who is part of the 30th Independence Celebrations concert lineup said for the first time artist in Namibia are stuck between a rock and hard place because of the ban on public gatherings imposed by the government to control the spread of COVID 19.

“Artists are negatively affected in the same way everyone else is affected by covid19,” he said.

According to Tate Buti while the seasoned artist will find a way the plight of young and upcoming artists is miserable.

” Namibian corporates can only assist here and there but cannot make much of the artists who are not helping themselves,” he said.

The veteran musician said while the situation is bad musicians should not bury their heads in shame.

“ generally, owners of companies, are willing only to help people who try to pull themselves up,” he said.

Tate Buti also added that “some artists are letting themselves down because they do not want to sell goods such as tomatoes and weaving clothes. This can be a solution instead of waiting for favours from other people. ”

The 30th Independence Celebrations concert is set to have music lovers and enthusiasts thrilled to an array of over fifteen superstars on 21 March at the Dr Hage Geingob stadium. The concert is sponsored by MTC, Tafel, Nasria, Profile Investments and Huawei
