Swakopmund born and bred musician Sakkie Tsam officially kick-started his solo music career with the release of his single Nâma He Ta Ge Hâ on 3 October.

His entry into the music industry as a soloist goes hand-in-hand with a documentary about him set for release early in November.

Although an exact date has not been set, Rainer von Hatten, a co-owner of Nautilus Studios, says that this documentary will introduce Tsam to the public as an individual away from the limelight of his budding career.

“Sakkie has such a unique story and we want to showcase that. All too often the public only sees an incredibly talented and established artist at their best. We want to show the growth a musician needs to go through to become such a talented person,” he says.

According to Von Hatten, Tsam’s characteristic humility sets him miles apart.

“I think this is what makes Sakkie unique. When he first walked into the studio he was humble and keen to learn. Such persons become musicians who can make long-standing careers from their music. They may not always be the most commercially successful, but they are established and can make a living from their music for years. The humble musicians are the musicians that everybody knows.”

At the core of Tsam and his music lies simplicity, according to Von Hatten who says, “Sakkie’s single is very minimalistic so we want this documentary to focus on the music from a personal angle and show people where the song came from.”

Von Hatten says that this simplicity will be a culture shock to the public.

“I think we focus too much on fame and idol artists, that we have a lack of appreciation for a musician who isn’t the biggest and flashiest.”

The introduction of the artist to the public is vital for the creation of long-term and valuable bonds between an artist and their audience.

Von Hatten hopes the documentary carries across who Tsam is, since he is a shy person by nature.
