Sunday groove with DJ Kadafi

By Rosalia David

LOCAL disc jockey Geraldo Mbutu popularly known as DJ Kadafi or Black Mamba is heating things up at Experience Lounge every Sunday giving clubgoers a lifetime experience through his unique mixing of musical tracks.

Mbutu the Experience Lounge residential deejay recently gave an in-depth interview on his musical career while giving more details on his Sunday show named ‘Sunday Residency.’

“The Sunday Residency at Experience Lounge is a show which intends to bring all tribes together to interact with each other and simply just have fun and dance,” he said.

Determined to bounce back from the lockdown that left many entertainers suffering as they depend on huge gatherings that were prohibited, Mbutu said he is now ready to blow music lovers away with new music that will keep them on the dance floor.

He said the first Sunday sessions that took place before the lockdown were well received with many clubgoers flocking to the Windhoek nightclub to dance the night away.

“When we first started ‘Sunday Residency’ the lounge would get packed to a point where there was no more space to sit. But, for now, as much as we want to start making money and make up for what we have lost, we will stick to the 50 people that are allowed to gather. Hopefully things are going to change.”

Mbutu who has over 10 years’ experience under his belt said he has always loved music. “My love for music comes from the family. All of my siblings used to listen to good music and not forgetting my mom, she was known for throwing the best discos in the 80s and 90s.”

Touching on some of the challenges he experiences as a local deejay, Mbutu highlighted that Namibians hardly listen to music that they are not familiar with.

“People will never allow you to introduce them to new music … all they want to hear is their bedroom playlist in a club for the 100th time and most Namibians rate music according to crowd standards and not quality.”
