Keanan Eksteen, 23, of Viking Village in Kraaifontein, is set to perform, the song he collaborated on with the band Goldfish, for a New Year’s Day concert at Kirstenbosch.
Sing With Me, which has more than 16 000 views on YouTube, was released in February.
Keanan, the eldest of four siblings, says his father taught him how to play guitar, but he never took music seriously until he was 18.
“That is when I started writing songs and I was inspired by people performing live and I knew that I wanted to play on the stadium shows and do something big one day.”
One of the co-founders of Goldfish, David Poole, says: “Keanan is a huge talent and a pleasure to work with. Watch out for him in the future.”
Since his first single, Dixie Clouds, was released in March 2022, Keanan has released an EP, an album and several singles, and he has done a two-month European tour.
