Steve Hofmeyr to include Die Stem in new album
Steve Hofmeyr is at it again! The Afrikaans singer now plans to include Die Stem on his latest album, which will be released in September.
Beeld reported that Steve, who came under fire after singing the song at a music festival earlier this year, said: "It was purely by request." According to the paper, the musician plans to sing it with only a guitar as accompaniment, adding the audience who sang it with him at the festival towards the end.
"I am just sorry I could not track Neelsie [CJ Langenhoven] himself down for a duet," he said, referring to the composer of South Africa's apartheid-era national anthem.
Steve is reportedly planning another release which will include the complete Die Stem and Ken jy die Land, the anthem of the independent Boer republic.
