David Kramer received an honorary doctorate in literature.
He was awarded a bursary to study at Leeds University in the United Kingdom, where he graduated with honours in 1974.
He began his musical career performing at folk clubs and campus concerts across South Africa in the early 1980s. His first album was banned by the SABC. He went on to earn 11 gold and one platinum record for his albums. His interest and passion is exploring the South African identity, and the thrust of the five musicals he wrote with Taliep Petersen and one on his own, is in the retelling of a suppressed history.
