PDK ecstatic after bagging two Namas

By Rosalia David

MUSICAL trio PDK, comprised of Patrick Mwashindange, Dion Auala and Kamtonyo Andreas shed a few tears of joy after bagging two awards at the Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) virtual show last weekend.

The duo won best music video and best group/duo in categories which comprised of other talented musicians such as Lioness, Dixon, Kalux, Cool under Pressure, Ethnix and House Guru Gang.

In an interview with Confidente, Mwashindange described the feeling of winning as overwhelming saying that the most important trophy is the ‘best duo’ award as it demonstrates the tight bond the band members have as brothers.

“The best music video, I would say we deserved it. We worked hard and put so much effort in the Saka music video, we wanted to bring out the best. But with best duo, it is one award that means a lot to us, we have been doing music together for 14 years, it really made my boys cry,” Mwashindange said.

He added it had been almost a decade without the group winning an award and the trophies prove that their hard work was finally paying off.

Thanking their fans for the continued support, Mwashindange said, “Our fans have been our biggest supporters. They have been buying the CDs every time we release without hesitating. Without them, we would not reach this far.”

Last year, the trio released their 12th album titled ‘Grateful’ which sold like hot cakes.

This year, Mwashindange said they have no plans to release another album but however promised to drop a banger single with a steamy music video.

“We will definitely be putting out something but we are not thinking of releasing an album at all.”

PDK is best known for their old time hits such as Moko, Dirty Kandeshi and Ochikutu among others.
