South African award-winning house act, Big Nuz, gave an energetic performance on Saturday night, keeping revellers on their feet for hours on end.
Compared to its last show in the country, Big Nuz’s stage presentation over the weekend was bigger and better, full of crowd-engaging sing-along tracks.
Despite the chilly weather, the Showgrounds saw a massive attendance, with the show kicking off in the afternoon.
DJ Cellos Deep, DJ Stiga and Kenny G performed as opening acts, drawing into the night.
Each DJ was granted a two-hour performance slot, before the main act of the night, DJ Fantacy, wowed the crowd with his top-notch mixes of deep house.
His mix of new and old-school house couldn’t have been better.
Gazza, who had been billed to perform before Big Nuz, was a no-show due to “other commitments”. As such, DJs Ehhe and Boonu from Afrotainment took to the stage with a skilful hour-long performance, flaunting deep talent.
And then Big Nuz took the stage with hit songs from its ‘Made in Africa’ album, introducing itself with ‘Hawaii’ and giving its Namibian fan-base a treat to what is arguably its biggest track to date, ‘Umlilo’.
The crowd went crazy, singing along to all Big Nuz’s songs, such as its latest offering, ‘Inazo’, ‘Happy Song’, ‘Sting Ray’, ‘Imahamba Yedwa’ and ‘Incwadi Yothando’.
Band member, Sbu Khomo aka R Msheshe, who reportedly had a flu when he arrived in the country, did not show any sign of the bug while on stage, as he helped his crew light it up with the kind of energy you would only expect to see at a Black Eyed Peas’ concert.
DJ Boonu concluded the show after Big Nuz ended its performance at 11:30pm, dishing out more house tunes till midnight.
