Cape Town – Clocking almost 500 000 views in just 2 days, this Afrikaans singer is quickly becoming an online sensation.

Jo Black seems to be breaking all Afrikaans music stereotypes with his hipster looks and sexy voice and it's paying off.

His song, Skepe, even landed at the top of the iTunes download list for Afrikaans songs, beating out Karen Zoid.

Born Jo Engelbrecht, the hunky singer grew up in Pretoria North and started working after school.

He ran his own construction company where, for approximately 8 years, he built everything from roads and bridges, to hospitals and houses.

Jo soon realised that there is more to life than just work, and things took a turn for him. He is currently working on his first album with the team at Inhoud Huis.

We’re so glad that Jo’s talent has finally been unearthed!
