20 Years of Hits
The brightest star on the South African music scene is our very own “Platinum Princess”.
Juanita du Plessis, she will be performing her 20 years of Hits show at The Barnyard Theatre Silverstar. Juanita has long been
crowned as one of South Africa’s top Afrikaans female artist.
She currently boasts 22 albums and 7 DVDs, each of which has achieved gold or platinum status. She also won several CMA,
Huisgenoot Tempo, Ghoema and SAMA awards between 1997 and 2018. Her highlights include her SAMA for best pop album
and best seller for the album, Engel Van My Hart because she herself was the director of the entire album as well as her
Ghoema Diamant Award for best Afrikaans seller in the history of South Africa.
JUANITA THE PERSON Juanita is a family person and her family is very important and precious to her. She and her husband,
Doepie, boast three beautiful children: the twins, Mario (son) and Franja (daughter) and older brother Ruan.
“I am an ordinary woman; A mother who loves my dream and passion every day! I am extremely grateful for who I am, where
I am and what I have… I want to be the instrument every day to touch people through my music, whether to make them
laugh, cry, encourage or just to make you feel better about life and maybe give you a little hope. It is a tremendous privilege
and honor to be able to be this instrument in God’s hands. I believe this is my ultimate creative purpose here on earth.”
Juanita’s admirers describe her as radiant, kind, beautiful, sincere, honest, encouraging, comforting, inspiring, interested,
considerate, a role model, a love… an angel! Her family and friends describe her as God-fearing, gentle, compassionate,
loving, innovative, professional, determined, purposeful and an example of humility.
However, she admits that she also has her shortcoming. “I’m not good at dealing with destructive criticism, injustice, sadness
and grief. I’m just a very sensitive person… But over the years I’ve learned how to deal with it and I always try to look for the
positive in every situation! But all answers to questions are in the Bible; it’s my anchor,” she says.
Juanita du Plessis’ career speaks of illustrious achievements, precious milestones, humility and dedication, and the awards to
her credit surpass those of most artists in South Africa.
