During the press conference held by the concert sponsors, Standard Bank Namibia, Red Carpet magazine among others, Eve (popularly known as E.V.E.) expressed how happy she is to be in the country.
“I feel very honoured and blessed to be here. I did not expect such a big crowd at a shopping mall, man!” She exclaimed.
The singer who also visited and performed at a concert in neighbouring Botswana two years ago, which according to entertainment critics did not give Gaborone her best, promises her Namibian fans an out-of-this-world show come Saturday.
When the one of the gathered fans asked her to give a teaser out of any of her popular tracks, she pleaded; "Oh guys, I love you all but I'm just off a 12-hour flight. How about I keep it for Saturday?"
