What a gwaan, Rastaman?

If you missed it, here’s a clip of my new favourite reggae singer, Durban’s very own Ras Dumisani. This was him singing the SA national anthem before their rugby Test against France on Friday.

Highlights? Brian Hapana catching a giggle, and Schalk Burger looking like he wants to moer someone!

Maybe that last joint before taking the field, like singing the harmony parts, may not have been your finest idea, Ras Dumisani.

So I’ve been doing a likkle checking up on who exactly this cat is, now that he’s a superstar and an instant sensation, especially among us self-professed Bok-haters.

Turns out he was mates with some interesting characters, including the late Lucky Dube. He’s big in Europe, and is “well-loved in his native KZN”.

The jokes write themselves, don’t they?

P.S. – May I present a true rasta man, Peter Tosh. Bumboclaat!
