Texx Talks S7E5: Armand Joubert

Armand Joubert is a five-octave-range singer who we just can’t get enough of lately.

After featuring him in Texx and the City’s pride campaign called #SpheresOfQueer, and working with him on introducing a new 1More product into the market, we’ve gravitated towards his creative energy and larger-than-life persona and it’s been a real treat to watch his career unfold in front of our eyes as he flexes a work ethic that would put even the most diligent to shame.

Having to overcome relentless bullying because of his unique talents, Armand has gone on to embrace his natural gift, and thrive, whilst possessing a relentless drive for creative growth. Don’t get too close, this fire burns!

Over at Texx Talks, we realised that we had been going for one hot minute. Almost two years, just under 100 episodes and, with some deft sidestepping of the pandemic at large, we have our first episode recorded live, in front of an audience! Armand Joubert and the “Legend of Leggeh”, Peach van Pletzen join host Tecla Ciolfi as they look back on the episodes that were, and how everyone has been making sense of life in the latter part of 2021. There are bad FX, mandatory tequilas and just one hell of a good time in this one, so sit back and put yourself in the room for Texx Talks’ very first live recording, from the notorious Romeo’s in Melville, Johannesburg.
