Ard Matthews has a mare!

So musicians are pretty good at a lot of things, take Ard Matthews, he’s nothing less than a South African rock legend. He’s performed around the world in front of tens of thousands of people and left them pretty much speechless.

Yet tonight he left many South African speechless for a whole other reason as he nervously butchered our national anthem. Sorry Ard you’re a great musician but that was a massive fail!

We’re just wondering who’s going to get on the first remix of this?


Ard had this to say on Twitter regarding the incident, “I thought the team were gonna join me like the standard bank ad. Haha. Huge apologies SA. Please forgive me…

*It was an FNB ad
