Elemotho album strikes gold in the UK

by Kelvin Chiringa

 Top-flying internationally acclaimed artiste, Elemotho Mosimane is on cloud nine following his newly birthed album, Beautiful World, having landed an award as the best world/global fusion album for 2017 in the United Kingdom.

Beautiful World is mastery of acoustics that speaks to a global audience and stresses on the vibe of positivity in an afflicted world.

Speaking to The Villager following his latest exploits, Elemotho said he was super-excited that the world is indeed following his tune and listening up to the stage of recognizing his latest offering.

“Am still on the cloud,” he said bursting with visible excitement, “Am so delighted you know, one doesn’t always make an album for this kind of recognition and so in the end it’s a beautiful thing when we get this kind of recognition.”

“When you get an award away from home, people are watching, you know, coz they don’t know you. It’s a big deal I didn’t know that I could be recognised like this," he said.

He also pointed out that he got informed that the album scooped a 100% vote from the judges as an album of choice.

This will not be his first international breakthrough on his albums and he says that the fact that he continues to win spells good for the entire local industry.

“Well it’s a big deal putting Namibia on the map, you discover that they are good opportunities knowing that Namibia ahs roots, what is Namibia in the end,” he enthused.

And for the musicians hustling for an international breakthrough, Elemotho urges them to keep pushing and not giving up.

“You never know what’s around the corner, it’s may be just at the time you give up. Keep real, keep it original, tell your story. It’s not about money,” he advices.

Meanwhile, Elemotho has been in Spain for the famed Womad festival as well as Zimbabwe’s prestigious Harare International Festival of the Arts.

He has performed recently at the expo, bursting out the original hypnotising "sounds of the Kalahari" which are as raw as they come.
