Natasha van der Merwe

South African actress, singer, dancer, voice artist, presenter and choreographer Natasha van der Merwe has recently announced a Namibian tour.

Van der Merwe, who is best known for her role as Suzie Naude in the popular South African soapie, ‘Suidooster’, will be gracing the stage with two exclusive performances – one at the Windhoek Golf and Country Club on 1 June, and another at the Out of Nature Country Lodge on 3 June.

She will be performing alongside South African singer-songwriter Bobby van Jaarsveld, and will be launching her second single, titled ‘Wag Vir Jou’.

Van der Merwe says she has performed in front of audiences all over the world while doing what she loves.

Her theatre credits comprise well-known musicals including roles, such as in ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Saturday Night Fever’, ‘Rock of Ages’ and ‘Doringrosie’.

Most recently she was cast as ‘Annie’ in the international touring production of the Broadway musical ‘Chicago’, which allowed her the opportunity to perform in front of thousands of audience members across the globe, including Europe, China and New Zealand.

Van der Merwe recently released her debut single and music video, ‘Hou My Vas’, which showcases her raw talent and passion for creating music that resonates with her audience.

Ravinelli James Schiefer, her booking agent, says this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Van der Merwe perform her debut hit single ‘Hou My Vas’, and her new single, ‘Wag Vir Jou’, which is set to be released on 2 June.

Schiefer says Van der Merwe will be opening for Bobby van Jaarsveld on 2 June.

“Get ready to experience the ultimate live performance in Namibia. The countdown to June has officially started, and the anticipation is at an all-time high.

“Natasha has another exciting announcement in store for ‘Wag Vir Jou’ fans, and on 2 June she will reveal an exciting TikTok Dance Challenge.

“Natasha has lined up incredible prizes. So, keep an eye on her social media pages for prize details and instructions on how to enter,” he says.

On her official website it states that Van der Merwe hopes to inspire the masses and showcase that one’s wildest dreams are possible.

To her, “it’s about giving back and seeing the joy and laughter, or tears on people’s faces when portraying a role, no matter how big or small”.

“Making a difference in people’s lives is really important to me. I would like to portray a realness, rawness and vulnerability that people can relate to.

“Love seems to be working for my creative process and the story I’m wanting to tell,” she says.
