if anyone has ever told you musicians are broke and can only take cabs, you have been misinformed because these Namibian boys play with big toys bought from their hard-earned cash.
In summer time, Namibian musicians like to be seen in their cars because they never make it through the festive season without driving into a wall.
These kwaito and hip hop boys have been getting familiar with the latest brands of cars. They now show off their talents with sexy babes on wheels.
Even though some of them are notorious for crashing their cars, they keep up with the latest Dirty Kandeshi-attracting rides.
Gospel sensation D-Naff drives a BMW X5, for its comfort and reliability. This car boosts the ego so much that one would drive through the red lights.
“It’s a safe and comfortable car. I bought it because of my son,” D-Naff says.
Gazza says his BMW 330i is a money saver and a child of modern technology: “I can travel long distances and not be worried because of the comfortable speed.”
Namas 2013 Most Disciplined Artist of the Year, Exit, drives a BMW 325ci, which is a sporty convertible. His car is his favourite of brands and gets top notch girlfriend treatment except for makeouts and the love-making.
“I love this car because of its speed and class. It’s my home and my best friend,” he boasts.
Some of these boys still like to keep things sway with calm brands.
Popular kwiku artist, Tate Buti, spots a classy Toyota Corolla, which he drives because of its affordability.
Fishman, on the other hand, shares similar sentiments with the clique; a car is a necessity for a man. His wheels are a Golf 5, which he enjoys driving because it’s ‘doable’ for him. “My car is a choice and it’s one of a kind,” he says.
The P (Patrick) of PDK refuses to talk about his new ride, although we hear it’s parked somewhere in the capital.
As much as he might try to avoid the jinx around musicians and their cars, D (Dion) reveals P rides a Peugeot Convertible, which accommodates two seasons.
“I bought my car from being an artist and working full-time. Being an artist alone is not enough to bring in cash for a car,” P says.
His car has an opening top that allows him to enjoy the summer breeze.
2013 Male Artist of the Year, Mushe says he drives a Mazda bakkie but would rather not elaborate on why he likes it.
