HemelBesem (aka Simon Witbooi) is a South African chat rhymer.  He grew up in Blackheath, one of the southern suburbs of Cape Town, Western Cape.  After his matric year he went to Worcester, where he was pastor for a while.  In 2011 he decided to return to Cape Town to focus on his other passion, music.

With his rhyme, which consists of excellent lyrics, he challenges race, culture and language to change perceptions based on preconceived ideas.
