Pedrito dies


by Villager Reporters


One of Namibia’s best recording artist and producer, Pedrito has died.


Born Peter Gabriel, Pedrito died yesterday (Sunday) at Katutura Hospital in Windhoek, after a long illness.


Credited for producing sell-out albums for Tate Buti among others, the 34-year old made fame with ‘Paulusa Paulusa’ but lost his fame three years ago when he went into full-time production.


The Selima Tafukala and Maria Maria hitmaker produced artists such as PDK, Guti Fruit and Ruka Buster among others.


“He combined kwiku, sungura and house flavours to further enrich and elevate his own beat that no one could emulate.

It is a huge loss to the music industry, really,” said Omalaeti Music boss, John Walenga with whom he produced four albums, among them the 2007 scorcher, Egweli whose songs Mesia and  Shinga Nawa went viral.


He is survived by 14 children and one wife.
