During Jack Parow’s Spot the Tourist tour to Holland and Belguim in May and June, he played to sold-out shows and plenty new fans… and the media over there thought he was a lekker ou, too. His Nag van die Lang Pette album peaked at the Number 2 position on Holland’s iTunes Hip Hop charts and nestled into the overall iTunes Top 30. His single, P.A.R.T.Y., is also heating up the charts on Holland’s radio stations.

After a well-deserved break to Vietnam, Jack is back in South Africa, klapping it big time Parow-style. Just ask the guysfrom Top Gear, who he met at the Top Gear festival, held in Durban this past weekend…
On Facebook, this photo was shared 1 322 times, 5 489 people liked it and it reached 269 312 people. Twitter thought it was pretty fancy too, seeing Parow trending yet again on Monday.
Parow is the first local artist whose music was part of the Top Gear production. “It’s was such a honour, seeing as I’m also a massive fan of the show, and the guys were so blêrrie cool and made me feel so blêrrie cool as well,” he says of this experience.
Daddy’s feeling generous!
Happy to be back, Parow couldn’t wait to treat his fans to some Xmas in June gifts, the Lekker by die See Tour and upcoming music videos.
As a ‘thank you’ to his fans for their continued support through better or worse, Parow has been giving away some gifts during June, courtesy of his next-level sponsors. There are still some gifts needing a home, so check out Jack Parow’s social networks.

For your viewing pleasure
Ode to You, featuring Nonku, is Parow’s current single and it’s burning the airwaves country-wide. Parow and Nonku pay their respects to the working class with this song. If you haven’t heard this song, it’s goose bumps all over, promise.
“I’m so happy that Ode to You is doing so well. Nonku is amazing on it and literally wrote the chorus in studio and just killed it straight away. She was actually there to record for another song. So ja, THANX EVERYONE FOR THE SUPPORT!!” Jack Parow
The release date of this video will be announced soon.
Next in line, is an animation music video for F*k F*kkity F*k featuring Dirt Nasty. Wikipedia says that Dirt Nasty, better known as Simon Rex, “is an American actor, comedian, television host, recording artist, record producer, former VJ and former pornographic film actor. He is known for being an MTV VJ turned rapper/comedian with his alter ego, Dirt Nasty, which has received a cult following on social media websites. He has starred as Jeff Campbell in the first season of What I Like About You, as the clumsy George Logan in Scary Movie 3 and 4, and as Dan Sanders in 5.”… and he loves Jack Parow.
“I met Dirt Nasty when I was in LA and straight away saw he was just as blêrrie crazy as I was, so ja, I knew we would have to do something together in the future and this track is one of my favourites from the album. It came out heavy lekker and, with the video dropping soon, hopefully I can bring my chommie down to SA for a tour soon,” says Parow.
Keegan Thornhill (http://www.cosmiconionring.blogspot.com) is producing the music video for F*k F*kkity F*k, which is due for release on 25 August.
