Mampara of the week: Kurt Darren
ONE LINE, BUT HE CROSSED IT
Some smartypants organiser thought it would be a good idea to go to the archives and dust off this has-been to torture students at the Varsity Cup rugby final. It worked wonders. Not only was his attempt at singing horrible, this Mampara also remixed our national anthem Ras Dumisani style.
However, it’s not his atrocious vocal gymnastics that make Kurt a Mampara, but his rubbish response to the backlash. Here is what he told Radio 702 presenter Eusebius McKaiser: “Yes, I messed up one line in the anthem, but you’re singing in front of 20,000 students at a Varsity Cup final. It’s a completely different animal to singing at a Test or a Super 15 or whatever … I know the anthem … But it’s so weird that it erupted this way.”
What ’smore weird is that you forgot to apologise, Darrenmpara.
