Blossom tenders apology years after making “derogatory” remarks
WINDHOEK, APRIL 23 – NAMA award winning artist Blossom, has officially tendered an apology for the derogatory remarks she made in 2017 according to a statement released by MTC today.
According to MTC, a formal apology letter was sent to NAMA Executive Chairperson, Tim Ekandjo, which read: “I hereby give a formal apology to the public in general, and to the Head of State, His Excellency Dr Hage Geingob, for a comment I made on social media in 2017 when I wrote on my page saying, ‘Okwankara eeta ondjala, Biggest mistake.’ I fully take responsibility for this negative remark which may have been considered tribal. I further extend my apology as it is part of my duty as a musician and business woman to uphold unity,” ended the letter.
The NAMA Executive Committee according to MTCs statement has since welcomed Blossom’s apology.
A letter supposedly written to Blossom by Ekandjo read: “We would like to thank you for taking this bold
step in tendering your apology. Apologizing is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength. We wish to inform you that the NAMAs have accepted your apology.” – NDN Staffer
