AFRIKAANS musician Steve Hofmeyr has laughed off an online petition calling on people to boycott his music.
The boycott call comes after Hofmeyr's involvement in last week's Red October protest against the "oppression and violence against white South Africans".
He is scheduled to perform in Uitenhage tonight at the Barkly Street Theatre and at the Vodacom Amphitheatre at the Boardwalk on Friday and Saturday.
"I am not at all [concerned about the petition]. If I get my way [as an ethnic minority] it would be a victory for all."
Speaking to Times Media, Hofmeyr said his fans could expect to have great fun at his upcoming shows in Port Elizabeth .
"Everything from Laaste Lag to Pampoen, we talk rugby and get really nostalgic. Some of my very first concerts were in PE in the late '80s. We have a pretty good and precious relationship, with both English and Afrikaans [fans]."
Hofmeyr defended his statements which have sparked controversy, saying any 8% minority (whites) should be contributing 8% to all murders or rapes.
"We're not. Not even close. But our minorities are disproportionately brutalised in murder and rape stats of epidemic proportions. Minorities should take heed. We are losing 98 out of 100 000 white farmers, which is 16 times the world average, three times the national average and twice the SAPS mortality rate. Some South Africans feel we've had enough."
Hofmeyr said his "tribe" was not killing each other, but it was rather coming from the other races.
"Coloured South Africans are not losing work in the Western Cape because they're lazy. They are being socially engineered out of the workforce.
"Farmers urgently need state security aid or at least some of the promises Thabo Mbeki made to them when he removed the commando system."
Hofmeyr denied allegations of sowing racial division or being racist.
"I am not racist at all. But I don't live in envy of other tribes or groups.
"I live in pride of my own. Everything I know about racial division I learnt from the ANC."
