EXCLUSIVE: Jack Parow and Jenna Pietersen look stunning in amazing new pics!

2015-10-02 07:00

Cape Town – Afrikaans rapper, Jack Parow, and his other half, Jenna Pietersen, recently turned up the cool in an insane new photo shoot.

The photos by Cape Town photographer Allister Christie is part of Parow's latest promo material and is being revealed on Channel24 exclusively for the first time.

Jack and the beautiful Jenna were styled by local designer Jeandré Venter and all the photos were shot in and around the Mother City.

The colourful, almost dream-like pics show Jenna posing in a bath filled with cereal, catching some sun on a satellite dish and hanging out in the kitchen while Jack's signature hats get even more elaborate and fun.

Parow has a book out:

Parow is a man of many talents and on Wednesday night launched his latest endeavour – a book titled Die ou met die snor by die bar (The guy with the moustache at the bar).

The book, written by Theunis Engelbrecht, is about all the wild, crazy adventures that Jack has been on, as well as his childhood and younger days and how he set out to become the rap sensation that he is today.

The story starts at his life behind the "boerewors-curtain" in Bellville and makes a couple of turns in Parow, The Netherlands, London, Los Angeles and Moscow.

The stories behind his hits are disclosed as well as some of his lyrics which will appear in print for the very first time, seeing as these don't feature in any of the CD-booklets. The book also contains some never-before-seen photos.

Here's where you can see Parow in action:
