STEVE HOFMEYR SKREE
Steve Hofmeyr, singer, songwriter, actor, author and activist, has reason to smile. He has recorded his 30th CD in so many years. His previous double-platinum release was one of South Africa’s best sellers for 2016 and now his army of supporters can look forward to SKREE, his latest original album for 2018.
“I felt like writing again, and SKREE is the result,” says he as he embarks on an international tour with stop-overs in Australia and New Zealand. He brings a taste of his Africa to thousands of expats all over the world, often introducing new Afrikaans acts.
“I can’t wait to see the Down Under reaction to singers Refentse and Emo Adams, two Afrikaans colleagues accompanying me. They are awesome talents. Should be a blast.”
He will return home for the publication of his 11th book, a crime novel titled, Die Onaantasbares (The Untouchables). This will be his 6th novel.
“Boredom and I are incompatible,” says the 53-year-old, recently a father again. His daughter, Romy-lee, his 6th “contribution”, was born on June 19th, 2017. He quips: “If you thought I was finished, shame on you…”
Pretoria-born Steve Hofmeyr has entertained the world for three decades, and his creativity knows no bounds. It started as a young rocker in movies, musicals and television (Agter elke man, Kampus, No Hero, Dis Hoe Dit Is, Platteland, Pretville, Treurgrond, etc) in the mid-80’s, culminating into one of the most enduring Afrikaans acts in history with a powerful and popular presence in 21st century South Africa. He entertains South Africans in sold-out concerts weekly, his unforgettable hits, big voice, sense of humour, pithy rants and strong social commentary leaving no stone unturned nor person unmoved. He has fostered a healthy Facebook (416k), Twitter (245k) and Instagram (27k) following, where you can reach him, well, right now!
Says Steve: “I don’t need to win. I just need to be heard. And once we master this, I believe in the greatest country on earth, South Africa.”
