Simoné Roets is back in the Jacaranda city!

The Afrikaans music industry is celebrating because the popular South African singer-songwriter – Simoné Roets – is moving back home after five years in Australia.

In 2016 we went to Brisbane, sad to leave behind South-Africa but we said yes to an adventure, and we are so much richer for it! We always planned on returning home someday, and now feels like the right time because I want to share my music with the people I am writing it for,” the musician explains about this bold decision.

Simoné shot to fame in 2021 with the release of her first Afrikaans single and music video, Dans in die Donker, which immediately caught the attention of Afrikaans listeners, the media and several big radio stations.

ONGEREP, a contemporary duet with Joshua na die Reën, followed shortly thereafter and made her even more popular with local audiences.

The meaningful song, written by the artist herself, is about how vulnerable humanity really is and was produced by Jattie de Beer of Artistry Productions.

Aside from establishing a new normal, Simoné is also in the process of finalizing her debut album that is scheduled for release later this year. Simoné grew up in Nelspruit and only discovered her passion for music after school. Since then, she has released an EP, as well as several other English songs.

The artist is very excited to be back in South Africa and to share her music with Afrikaans fans. “I think it is important to live where you are as if you will live there forever. I am incredibly grateful for our season in Brisbane and the people who became family to us. I honestly doubt that I would have pursued music the way I am if it wasn’t for our time there,” she concludes.

ONGEREP is now available on all digital platforms. Download it here: https://linktr.ee/simoneroets
