Two Doggs on different expeditions
Award winning Namibian Kwaito star, The Dogg is sampling his latest album, ‘Introducing Tee Dee’ in Paris this week, days after launching it in Windhoek on Saturday. “Paris will feel me for the next two and half weeks,” said the artist hours before the flight to Europe. The Dogg’s trip is sponsored by the Franco Namibian Cultural Centre (FNCC) in Windhoek and comes weeks after another local celebrity Gazza was sponsored for a seven nation tour of the Southern African region by FNCC. The Dogg who has found a good hunting ground in Botswana, Angola and South Africa says his latest album is “full of hits and it will be up to the public to decide which one would make the best video.” Locals will wait for the whole month before the Dogg settles back to start live shows. Hit song ‘Baby Don’t Go’ is also in the album which features local artists Nasty, Mlakisto and Tre van Die Kasie. “After Paris this album will go to Swaziland, Botswana, Mozambique and South Africa”, said manager Jay Malgas of Cool Production. The Dogg takes to France, an album a little bit different from his last two. ‘Small Town Girl’ is a reggae song, which talks about the singer’s new taste for a small town girl to girls leading a high life in the capital. Another sing-along song is the first track, ‘Things I Like’ which is done in Portuguese, English and Oshiwambo. Meanwhile media reports from South Africa say that Snoop Dogg who was arrested at a London Airport with his five bodyguards for smashing whiskey bottles on the floor, managed to compensate the missed Johannesburg show with a one-off show alongside, Sean Paul, Mario and Pharrell Williams. The shows were well attended as the American rapper boasted that he had “come back home”.
