Jo Black is back after a major neck operation… and sounding better than ever!


Jo Black, the South African Afrikaans Hipster who went viral globally with his smash hit “Skepe” is back, after a major operation, and sounding better than ever.

Black recently underwent a serious neck operation to repair a condition that needed immediate medical attention. A press statement was released advising fans that he would be going into theatre on Sunday, the 9th of September 2018.

“The date was confirmed this morning, as Jo’s condition has deteriorated substantially over the last two days. The specialists are concerned that the slightest bump could lead to permanent paralysis and therefore need to operate as soon as possible.”

There were over 25 shows cancelled due to the medical procedure but the incredible South African artist is on the road to recovery and completely ready to perform again!

Black joined “Breakfast with Martin Bester” on Jacaranda FM this morning to announce his return by covering Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire” and man, was he on FIRE!

Watch the incredible performance below:

Jo Black will join Riky Rick, Majozi,  Mafikizolo, GoodLuck, Fokofpolisiekar, Timo ODV and Martin Bester and Band on stage at PRIME FEST – A Jacaranda FM Music Experience on Saturday, 10 November 2018 at Casalinga, Rocky Ridge Road, Muldersdrift.
