Riko Eksteen Staff Writer

Where are you from? Cape Town, South Africa (My hown town is called Eversdal in case you were interested.)

What is your age/birthdate? 23 / January 19, 1979

Favorite artists? The best band in the world is of course Delirious? Also Lifehouse, Jennifer Knapp, Tree63, SONICFLOOd, Jars. If I had ten pages I would list them all.

Favorite albums? At the moment, No Name Face from Lifehouse and Deeper from d: Also Jars of Clay self-titled (the original and best...), everything else from the d:boys, Lay It Down from Jen and so on and on...

Favorite books? Everything from Tolkien, including Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion (I am, unfortunately, one of those crazy fan dudes). Furthermore, I love anything from sci-fi to history, except for soppy love stories! Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy is the funniest book ever written. Terry Pratchett is funny too, if and when he doesn't get weird. As far as writers go, I especially like Frank Peretti. Rick Joyner is a gift from God. I would have included the Bible, but it does not classify as a book - it's a lifestyle!

Hobbies/interests outside of cMusicWeb.com? I love hanging out with my most excellent friends. I hike now and then, love going to the movies, listen to music (duh), and watch sports (those being rugby and cricket as opposed to football and baseball...)

Which person(s) has influenced you most? My pastor, Fred May. Someone commented once that if you spent one year under Fred's teaching, you can go plant a church. So true. A real man of God. Thanks Fred!

If you could meet one person, past or present, who would it be? I would love to have a real heart to heart with Paul and get to know all his secrets, including why he thinks its better not to marry!

Mission in life? To always try and be as close to God's will for my life is possible, and to glorify His name in all the earth!

In ten years, I will be... Hopefully in a position where I can fire people that ask questions like this one!
