OLD SWARTLAND GRAIN SILO TURNED NEW GETAWAY HAS JACK PAROW ALL INSPIRED
Afrikaans rap artist Jack Parow returns to Kalmoesfontein Farm. While there he tells us about his soon to be released album and how he’s managed to diversify and stay relevant.
A naweek at a working wine farm in the wheat country of the Swartland was how we toasted a decade of Jack Parow, aka Zander Tyler who has diversified into writing tracks for films, TV series, a Kwaito meets West Coast guitar anthem to unite fans behind the Springboks and even released his own brandy and braai sauce.
Love at first fright for some fans, an acquired taste for others, he is now an institution and for Kalmoesfontein Farm hospitality manager Semma Badenhorst, fits right in at the Swartland farm.
The popular Afrikaans hip hop artists had the pleasure of experiencing their newly converted grain Silo – an open-plan master bedroom with stunning Swartland views.
It’s the perfect spot for a getaway or to explore the bread basket turned wine country, and provided an ideal setting to chat to Jack about his formula to his sustainability in the industry and find out all about his new album 22.2.22 that is set to be released in the new year.
“I’m working on my new album that I’m dropping on my birthday next year, which is 22 February 2022. It’s almost like binary. I was going to release it earlier, but that number’s too strong so I’m releasing it then.”
