Talented singer-songwriter, Christiaan Baartman, has once again harnessed the power of music to convey a potent message in his latest single, which has just been released.
VIR MEKAAR is an inspiring and heartfelt anthem that encourages South Africans to stand together, recognize their own potential, and build a better nation and future for all who call this country home.
In a time when the option of emigrating haunted him, the musician found his answer through the creation of his latest release.
The song came to him in a moment of clarity at 3 am, with a profound realization that he was placed in the country for a purpose – to build, protect, and nurture.
“If I run away from SA, I run away from my calling. Here I will stay,” says Baartman, echoing the sentiments of millions of South Africans who face the daily choice between running or fighting for a better future for themselves and their children. “It’s our choice whether we flee or stay, fight, and stand together for a brighter tomorrow and future in the country we hold so dear.”
This sentiment is further emphasized by a poignant music video that showcases how people across the nation contribute in their unique ways to the growth and development of the country.
Furthermore, this exceptional track will serve as the theme song for a significant documentary supported by a major local cultural movement and corporate sponsors.
VIR MEKAAR is the seventeenth single from the artist in four years, following in the footsteps of his recent release, Vellies op die Dansvloer, which was very well received.
With 18 years in the music industry, Christiaan has written over 100 songs, won numerous music awards, and graced major stages both locally and internationally.
He has many plans and dreams for the future and feels privileged to pursue his passion every day in a country and language he loves so unconditionally.
VIR MEKAAR is destined to resonate with anyone who yearns for more than mere survival and carries the powerful message that happiness and fulfilment can be found right in South Africa.
“The core message of the song is clear: We will stand for what is right, we will never give up. For each other,” the artist concludes.
