Johannes Kerkorrel the unsung hero of Afrikaans Pop Music

Johannes Kerkorrel was a reporter, poet, father and singer who together with a group of musicians changed the face of Afrikaans pop music forever.

These musicians also had a lasting impact on South African history, with many believing that their anti-Nationalist government stance and revolutionary lyrics hastened the demise of apartheid.

I am writing a book about Kerkorrel and the others, until it is finished I will post updates on this site.

Apart from documenting the progress of my book, this website will provide an overview of Johannes Kerkorrel’s life and achievements as well as a bit of an insight into what it was like to be living in South Africa during the 80s.
