uShaka Marine World will welcome Kurt Darren and Bobby van Jaarsveld - two home grown Super Stars - to Wet ‘n Wild on December 28, 2011 as part of the uShaka Summer Nights Festival.

Kurt Darren is best known for songs such as MeisieMeisie, LekkerLekker, Kaptein and Staan Op. He has accepted many musical awards with the latest being for The Best SokkieDans Album during the South African Music Awards in 2011 for his album Die BesteMedisyne.

Joining him on this especially “lekker” evening is Booby van Jaarsveld. For this performer, music is a family affair. Elder sister Karlien is the founder and lead singer of the group Revolusie. He started singing at the age of 14 and released his first solo CD during his matric year. He began touring a year later, taking to the road with Dozi.

In 2006, Theuns Jordaan heard the young artist performing and offered him a recording contract. In the same year, van Jaarsveld won the Huisgenoot Tempo Award for the best newcomer of the year and in 2007, 2008 and 2009 he was invited to be part of the magazine’s prestigious Skouspel concerts at Sun City.

A number of waterslides will be operational during the evening where the more adventurous can experience the magic water wonderland of uShaka Marine World at night. Food and beverage outlets are open, where guests can purchase meals and refreshments.

The show starts at 18h30 on December 28 at the Wet ‘n Wild at uShaka Marine World. Tickets R120 booked at Computicket. More information from Wayne Scott at uShaka on 031 328 8000.
