× WINDHOEK, 16 May 2018 – Entertainer Adriano Visagie (Tina), in perfect resemblance to musical icon Tina Turner, delivering a stunning lip-synch performance of Turner in Windhoek on Wednesday evening. Turner, a survivor of gender-based violence (GBV), is also an inspirational woman of courage and determination. Organisers of the show, who wanted to celebrate Turner as a performer, said this strength of will is of relevance to the LGBT community for the oppression (and often physical assault) they face daily.
