I’ve blogged before…ages ago…about Steve Hofmeyr…but now I have one of my favourite videos for you to watch… Beautiful Noise. I do enjoy Neil Diamond’s music and have a few ND CD’s. This song by Steve…was sung during his tour in the USA…in 2007. On this video the word “Afrikaans” is mispronounced and you can see Steve’s reaction…(apart from the other “word” that was used…) Well, no one expect you…if you’re English…or from any other country…to pronounce the word “Afrikaans” correctly…if you do want to know how to pronounce it correctly…it’s easy…just say…Imran Khan…and then you can say..”Afrikhans”…lol! easy as like when you eat a pancake…that’s what I always tell children…hehehe…if you are a South African…you do know too that all is not well with Steve’s marriage…which is very sad for us all ..click on THIS LINK where you can read about him and his South African actress-wife…Natasha Sutherland’s marriage. I prefer to stick to his music and not to read about him and Natasha..in fact…I haven’t read any news articles about them..not even this one! The reason why South Africans are so upset about him, is the fact that he is such a fantastic person, he’s got a great personality…he’s a fighter for Afrikaans…and he’s got my support 100% behind him. He’s a fighter for crime…again he’s got my support… he’s a poet/writer and I love poems…and he’s also an actor! I saw him performed in London in the Palladium and his show was just fantastic. Dana Winner is a Belgian artist who performed in South Africa with him .. the Flemish Language is almost like Afrikaans! On one CD she sings Flemish and you wouldn’t notice the difference between the two languages. These albums of Steve are the albums I’ve got…the third album is a Christmas album where Dana sings “Silent Night” in Flemish. Many of Steve’s songs are in English too…
Dana Winner….Stille Nag-Afrikaans/Flemish–…(Silent Night)
In this video… you see Steve singing Neil Diamond’s song.
This next video is a song by Dana Winner… “Ik hou van jou”…in Afrikaans translated…”Ek hou van jou”.
