The 2012 Eurovision entry from Belarus WE ARE THE HEROES by Litesound ends up as our 35th best song. The song was covered in Afrikaans by Jan-Mattys van Lill in 2012 and a second cover in Afrikaans was done in 2017 by Dirk Lazenby.
The day started off great when we received the latest two Eurovision covers. A singer from Cape Town, DIRK LAZENBY has recorded a full CD and on it will be two Eurovision covers.The CD is currently at the printers and once it becomes available, we will inform you about the details.
The two euro covers are
Lithuania 2012 Love is blind of Donny Montell which will be called JY’S DIE EEN VIR MY (you are the one for me)
Belarus 2012 We are the heroes of Litesound which will be called EK WIL JOU HELP WEES (I want to be your hero).
Andy Mikheev, the chief editor of ESCKaz website heard the two covers and said it is of the BEST ever to come out of South Africa.
Roy van der Merwe, the president of Eurovision South Africa loves both songs as well. but most know he just love covers and is not as objective when it comes to real world quality,which according to Andy these two covers are.
Dirk is still fairly unknown but this CD, if the other songs are of the same standard, is destined for big things.
A special thanks to Riaan Steyn who is helping Dirk to realize his dream with this CD.
