Jack Parow is back with a new music video for his song Byellville. The Afrikaans Rapper has become almost a household name in South Africa since he burst onto the scene in late 2009 with his song Cooler As Ekke. Apparently “Cooler as Ekke” was one of the most Googled words in South Africa in 2010 (according to a report released late last year). His debut album has already sold more than 40,000 copies.
The music video for Cooler As Ekke has been viewed more than 1.7 million times on YouTube. I must admit that Byellville is not my favorite song by Jack Parow, but its still a kickass tune. I last saw Jack Parow perform at RAMfest 2011 in the Western Cape. He made an appearance during Zef Rap Superstars Die Antwoord’s set.
Good news for Gauteng music fans is that Jack Parow will be performing this weekend in Pretoria at Arcade Fire (the old Foundry Fly Lounge) launch party in Pretoria East (along with Matt Suttner & DJ Sassquatch). Entrance to this event is free.
The event is organized by I Love P-Town & Hotbox Studios. Jack Parow will be making his way to the Netherlands at the end of April again. He will be performing at Cultureel Podium De Kelder in Amersfoort on the 28th of April, at Bibelot in Dordrecht on the 29th of April, at Patronaat Kleine Zaal in Haarlem on the 6th of May and at Mama’s Pride in Geleen on the 8th of May.
