Cape Town – After a recent break-in at his holiday home, Steve Hofmeyr took to Facebook to share some of his plans for 2015.

In a post on Thursday, he touches on different subjects, such as the events of the break-in, Charlie Hebdo, freedom of speech and his Twitter timeline. In the last part of his post however, he talks about politics and says that he will retire from politics if people support the festivals that boycott him.

"This year I am testing political waters. If Afrikaners, Boere and whites support the festivals that boycott me, I will know to step out of the debate and to not stand up for our interests," Steve says in his post.

He continues: "I can’t place the safety of my family, my career and our survival on the cultural altar if my work isn’t perceived seriously there ... Maybe by 2016 I will again just be a normal Afrikaans singer without an opinion. I take YOUR guidance this year. Where do YOU want me to go? This year I will know..."
