Fresku – First he wanted to be a singer. After that, he dreamed of being a writer, a drawer and an actor before he finished Highschool. It was clear at an early age that Fresku did not want a normal day job at an office. He wanted to be creative.
He started rapping when he was 14, but started to take it seriously since he was 20 years old when he formed the group ‘Zwarte Schapen’. His big breakthrough came when he created the alter ego/character Gino Pietermaai. After that, he wrote the songs ‘Brief aan Kees’ and ‘Twijfel’ and he became famous as a unique personal rapper.
That combination of funny and serious, of wink and sincerity, characterizes Fresku’s work. There are great reviews, numerous gigs, several State Awards, nominations for a 3voor12 Award and 3FM Awards.
last 2 years Fresku had his own stand up show in the theatres. But in the summer of 2018, it is time again for the big stages of the summer festivals.
