Oom Hansie

A mid-1980s studio project involving producer Richard Siluma who recycled familiar tunes with Afrikaans vocals added by his cousin, Lucky Dube.

They released two Maxi singles: “Kaapse Dans” (1985) and “Help My Krap” (1986). “Kaapse Dans” was also released as a single in 1985.

In 2005 an album-length CD, Oom Hansie Kaapse Dans En Anner Hits, was released by Gallo, including previously un-released tracks. A cassette version of the Kaapse Dans EP was banned by the South African government’s Directorate of Publications because of bad language.
