Jack Parow: Traditional Afrikaans people think I’m the devil

Cape Town - During a recent interview with Dominic Wilhelm for the online talk show, First Name Basis, Jack Parow spoke candidly about Afrikaans culture.

According to Parow religion is the most important part of any culture and specifically the Afrikaans culture.

"I’m like the devil for traditional Afrikaans people. Which is obviously completely untrue. I just make music that is fun and not boring and shitty and crap like most of the other Afrikaans artists," Parow said after presenter Dominic asked him about his views on the Afrikaans culture.

According to Parow there is definitely a movement in the Afrikaans community to a more liberal side.

"Sometimes you protect something (the Afrikaans language) so much that it almost dies. The problem is that they are trying to protect Afrikaans so much that they ostracize it from everything else. Bands like me and Fokofpolisiekar try to take Afrikaans into the future and make it cool," Parow added.
