This is another list of Afrikaans musicians and singers from different eras.

This part of the song references a choir, more musicians, and a humorous exchange about Heintjie Simons and Ivan Rebroff, who were both known for singing Afrikaans songs despite being Russian and Dutch respectively. The mention of Heino is another tongue-in-cheek reference to a German singer who was also popular in South Africa.

Did anyone notice James Small helping him off the field in the end ?

@celticwarrior1365

Iam a proud Welshman but if any player deserved to succumb to a knuckle sandwich from a Bok, the accolade would undoubtedly go to Derwyn Jones of Cardiff!

@ivanmynhardt

hahahahaha, my fck I laughed so hard here. cheers

@skyelark155

Hilarious

@daithemuff

Punched derwyn while he wasn't looking that makes him a fanny in my book

@chewie2240

That really was a cheap shot. Ask any fighter, the punch you don't see is always the one that knocks you out.

@terrydi1

in fairness jones did smack him in the gob just before he went to sleep

@wikusherbst5834

The Leon Schuster metermaid prank on Kobus was hilarious😂😂😂

@elfedmorris595

Well done kobus.
