Dancing Boere go viral with a million views of their lekker video

Three Boere dancing to Brenda Fassie’s ‘Vulindlela’ are going viral with almost a million views.

 

Casper, Sakman and Raymond were planning a restful weekend of drinking Castles and dancing in the Tankwa region but after the video of them has had almost a million views, we’re guessing their social media has been quite busy.

The video originally uploaded on the 18 May 2017 has given the Farmers some interest fame and since the video has gone viral, the 3 Boere have been dubbed the “Tankwa Dust Steppers”.

The trio were caught dancing to Brenda Fassie’s ‘Vulindlela’… a song that is deeply rooted in South Africa’s history.

“Listening to Vulindlela, it’s quite hard to believe that someone who had so many problems in life could sing so beautifully, but Brenda Fassie’s vocals on this track are hauntingly so. Set against a decidedly danceable synth background, the song epitomises the township sound of the late 90s.”

“You don’t have to understand the words to be moved by the song.Brenda was huge throughout Africa, and Vulindlela is widely appreciated around the globe.”

“A month after her death on 26 April 2004, the song was voted Song of the Decade at the South African Music Awards. It is highly likely that the emotional outpouring that followed her death led to this vote, however, that should not distract one from the fact that it would probably have been a contender for the award anyway.” – John Samson
