Cape Town - Musician Jack Parow has said he is not bothered by the people who have taken a dislike to him after he swore on stage during a perfomance in Newcastle, Kwazulu-Natal, reports Timeslive.co.za.

The musician's reaction comes after his performance over the weekend was met with negative reactions by some fans who attended his show in Newcastle.

The musician told the newspaper that those who have a problem with his type of music must get over it.

"I'm not going to be fake.  I swear in real life and I say who I am. I don't put on a façade and people must just deal with that," he said.

'A disgrace to Afrikaans Language'

According to Timeslive some fans tried to get physical with Jack Parow after he swore on stage. Some of the spectators were calling him names like "satan slang" (devil snake) and a "disgrace to the Afrikaans language".

Parow defended his type of music and stated that it was only a minority of the fans who had a problem with his swearing.

"I was signing autographs for about three hours afterwards, and people were chanting my name, so whatever."

The Cooler as Ekke rapper defended himself saying people were not forced to listen to his music.

"It's not like I'm going out in my car announcing it on speakers. It's a personal choice and you can choose to listen to it or not," he said.
