Jack Parow Biography:

Jack Parow is the pseudonym of Zander Tyler, a South African rapper, actor and record producer with deep Afrikaans roots.

Born in Cape Town, Jack Parow was obsessed with music from an early age and ventured into it, confident he would make it as a musician. He came by his stage name during a drunken moment when he was watching Pirates of the Caribbean. He was like, F*k Jack Sparrow, the pirate of the Caribbean! I’m Jack Parow, the pirate of the Caravan Park.

The name has since stuck.

Jack Parow prides himself in giving fans a full dose of himself, music, energy and all. Most of his music reflects aspects of his life, including the fact that he was never a “cool” kid and was bullied at school.

Music was his salvation, and he has since emerged as one of the visible faces in South African music.

Net Worth

The songster might be loud sometimes, but his net worth is something you would rarely find him bawling about. In reality, he’s more concerned with entertaining his fans and having a good time himself.

However, the public has been doing the talking, and estimates of his net worth range from $1million to $3 million.


Jack Parow is known to have one child, a girl known as Ruby Tyler. She was born in 2012 and has a close relationship with her father. In fact, the rapper and actor credits his daughter with inspiring him to write a song titled “Dis Befok” in 2014.

House & Cars

It’s unclear what make of cars the rapper currently rolls through town with. However, when talking about his cars, Jack Parow is most famous for having lost his first car, a Citi Golf which he inherited from his grandmother, and recovered it six years after. At the time of the loss, he was working on his first album.

The loss was pretty inconvenient and he had to rely on family and friends for means of transportation until he raised enough money to buy another car.

Parow loves a good crib and he’s spent a bag to acquire a place he truly loves and comically calls Parowdise – yeah, thats a concatenation of Parow and paradise. One can’t fault the name becuase the house is a paradise of sorts, as seen in the video below.
