Multi-talented South African actress, singer, presenter, dancer and choreographer Natasha van der Merwe says she’s ready for her first Namibian tour.
Best known for her role as Suzie Naude in the popular South African soapie ‘Suidooster’, Van der Merwe will be gracing the stage for three exclusive performances.
She will perform at the Windhoek Golf and Country Club during an intimate evening dinner today, and tomorrow she will perform as the opening act for South African singer-songwriter Bobby van Jaarsveld at the Pionierspark church hall. On Saturday, she will be at Out of Nature Country Lodge’s meet and greet/spitbraai.
uring her tour she will also launch her second single ‘Wag Vir Jou’.
The performer says audiences can look forward to a one-woman show with a little storytelling about her life and career.
She will also be performing her first single ‘Hou My Vas’.
“I will be singing my brand new track on 1 June before it’s even released anywhere in the world. They are my singles. They are very special to me and I can’t wait to share them with everyone,” she says.
The single will be launched worldwide on all social media and digital streaming platforms.
Van der Merwe says the song is all about waiting for ‘the one’.
“I think being the age I am and society having led us to believe that we should be married with five children, two dogs and a white picket fence and have this perfect life by this age. It’s also okay to not have all of that and to normalise the fact that everyone’s journey is different. It’s basically written from a place of, I know that I could’ve been married by now, but I know that I’m also waiting for the right person. As much as there might have been many opportunities, I’m not prepared to just say yes for the sake of saying yes.”
