Jack Parow upsets KZN town

2012-05-02 08:40

Cape Town - Afrikaans rapper Jack Parow had to be led off stage during a show in Newcastle, KwaZulu-Natal, at the weekend because his lyrics upset a group of people, the Cape Times reported on Wednesday.

The group physically threatened Parow, whose real name is Zander Tyler, at the festival on Friday, because some people were offended by swear words.

A man tried jumping onto the stage, but was pulled back by police, who had been called in to calm the crowd down.

Not bothered

Parow's critics aired their views on the Newcastle Newspaper's Facebook page, with some calling Parow a "satan slang" (devil snake) and a "disgrace to the Afrikaans language".

Others defended his performance. The rapper told the newspaper he was not bothered by the commotion.

"I was singing 'Dans, dans fokken dans'. This one guy was shouting at me and said: 'Why are you fucking swearing?', but that was funny because he was swearing at me.

"If you're going to put me on after blerrie Steve Hofmeyer; well, our fans are world's apart."
