2016 SAMA nominee for Best Pop Album, Loki Rothman has been releasing his popular #OneManBand cover videos of international hits from his Facebook page and YouTube channel since 2015. So far he has put his unique spin on Justin Bieber’s Sorry, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk, Bills by LunchMoney Lewis and Sam Smith meets August Rush’s Leave Your Lover.
Loki decided to shake things up with his latest release. He roped in a collaborator and covered a song in this mother tongue for the first time.
Loki has been a fan of Pierre Greeff from Die Heuwels Fantasties voice for a long time and phoned him to invite him to do an Afrikaans cover with him. Pierre told me that he’s always wanted to do something with the Amanda Strydom song, My Kamer which also features Stef Bos. I listened to the song and I immediately knew what we could do with it.”
Watch the mesmerizing My Kamer here:
The video was shot and edited by Danie Nel. I’ve wanted to do an Afrikaans song for a long time. It felt quite strange so sing in my mother tongue as I’ve been singing in English for so long”, says Loki.
Although this release is not a change in direction for this brilliant young musician, he will release more Afrikaans songs in the future.
