Mack Rapapali and Christiaan Baartman with their single, 'n Vriend Soos Jy (A friend like you)




Who would have guessed that the popular presenter and DJ,  Mack Rapapali and the talented singer, musician and song-writer, Christiaan Baartman, would join forces and release an enticing single, ‘N VRIEND SOOS JY!? (A FRIEND LIKE YOU)  Well, that is exactly what happened and here it is!


Christiaan and Mack met at an interview and got on very well from the start. A short while thereafter, they bumped into each other again at a get-together with mutual friends.


“I immediately said how wonderful it was to meet Mack’s lady friend and how scarce true friendships are. Right there and then I was inspired to write the song – in the bathroom – and played the song to Mack. We decided on the spot to record the song. It feels like I have known Mack forever. From his work ethic and his pure heart – everything I also aspire to be,” says Christiaan.


“Christiaan and I have a very strong connection. We are like Brandy and Coke,” says Mack. “One of the funniest experiences I have every had was with the recording of the song, when I had to sing with a peg on my nose. For a minute or two I sounded like a Chipmunk, but it really helped me to bring out my real voice.”


Christiaan wrote the song and the final mix was done by Sean Manley.


“We all have that one person/friend in life that knows you inside and out, all your strenghts and weaknesses. The first person you phone when you are in trouble or to share your good news with. This is, ‘N VRIEND SOOS JY,” explains Christiaan.


“Sometimes we are cought up in toxic friendships, where the one gives more than the other. Friendships where both parties only want the best for each other, are scarce. It is time to let the false people go and make room for the real people in your life,” Mack adds.


Christiaan and Mack ensures listeners and followers that this is only the start of their camaraderie and that they still have a lot in store for the future.
