Cape Town – Afrikaans rapper Jack Parow is in jail after being detained on charges for disturbing the peace near Oppikoppi site Northam.

According to a statement "Parow and some friends were staying at the Vaalkop dam 60 km South East of Northam where the popular Oppikoppi BewilderBeast music festival is taking place this weekend.

"Parow and a friend took a catamaran out on a joy ride on the dam at about 1:30 am on Wednesday morning. After repeated requests over loud hailers Parow and his friend finally returned to shore.”

Parow and his friend reportedly co-operated with police, but tried to explain that they had simply "borrowed" the boat.

Parow and his friend are currently being detained for public disorder and disturbing the peace.

"Jack Parow was scheduled to perform at the Oppikoppi festival on Sunday, and is currently unavailable for comment," said the statement.

Jack Parow posted the following video from jail to announce that he will not be playing at Oppikoppi at the weekend:
