Bio

Andy "The Admiral" Kasrils is a British-born South African radio and television personality and DJ best known as the movie critic on the e.tv comedy talk show The Phat Joe Show.

Born to a South African family in exile in the UK, Andy found himself immersed in London's Ragga music scene where he learnt the art of Ragga Lyric Rap and the diversity of musical acceptability from a large audience base.

He studied Sound Engineering at Kingston University and began working at London's Mint Jam Records recording studio, during which he collaborated with various artists ranging from off-the-street demo seekers, to established artists such as Soul II Soul.

In 1994, The Admiral returned to South Africa and recorded an album with local artists in support of the country's first peaceful democratic elections.

He started his radio awareness on Voice of Soweto where he met up with Bongo Maffin, Skeem and various other local kwaito artists, and released the Ragga "national anthem" Gong de de gong with Bongo Maffin's Apple Seed.

He hosted YFM's Ragga show on Sunday evenings from 22h00 to midnight and was featured on the Phat Joe Show for four years as a movie critic and a director.

One of The Admiral's most well known fortes is club DJ-ing, where rap, voice and the love of music blend together to deliver a unique fusion of sound.

He played himself on the SABC3 improvisational comedy series Sorted and was a judge on the third season of the reality competition Popstars, in 2004.
