‘They call me Gerrie Nel and I am mad as hell’: Now Pistorius prosecutor gets his own rap
By Alex Aldridge on
Following the hip hop creations spawned in tribute to Oscar Pistorius’ defence lawyer, Barry Roux, a track has been recorded in honour of tough-talking Gerrie Nel, the prosecutor in the case.
It begins: “They call me Gerrie Nel and I am mad as hell, and when I get you on the stand, I will make you tell,” before going on to question the skills of opposing counsel Roux (“You say Barry Roux, I say Barry who?”), and finally rounding off with an unlikely Miley Cyrus comparison (“Just like Miley Cyrus I’m a freaking wrecking ball”).
But is it better than the best of the Roux tributes?
Needless to say, the obligatory Gerrie Nel parody Twitter account has also been spawned.
Just don’t expect these QCs to be following it…
