Who is Kurt Darren?

If you’re South African, the only way you wouldn’t know who Kurt Darren is – is if you have lived under a rock for most of the early 2000s.

The predominantly Afrikaans artist who has won nine South African Music Awards, released his debut album, For Your Precious Love, in 1995.

Darren has gone on to have a very successful career. He was the host of the popular KykNet show, Jukebox and has also appeared in a number of South African films including Liefling. 

His most famous tracks include Meisie Meisie, Kaalvoet Sokkie, and Kaptein. Kurt Darren has worked alongside the likes of Snotkop, Jan Bloukaas and Nicholis Louw.
