Zak van Niekerk was born in the heart of Namaqualand (Springbok) where he also went to school. As a farm boy he ran after sheep in the Boesmanland (his family still lives there) and tried his best to be a farmer like his father and brother, but with no luck, because his first love was always music.

He had his own band during his high school years, but he was the only one who was serious about music. He then decided to do his own thing since then until now.

During his matrix year he was assigned SANA church choir en concert group, also known as the Canaries, for a period of two years.

At the end of his first year the government decided to close the department and Zak van Niekerk was forced to make plans for the sudden future.

He then decided to study further and luckily Tygerberg College accepted him, although it was a late appliance.

He received a record deal the same year. At the age of only 19 his debut album (Bekfluitjie Boogie) was released on the 14 January 1999.
