Profile:
Emo Adams is a South African actor, singer and producer best known for his collaborations with David Kramer and the late Taliep Pietersen, specifically his roles in the musicals District 6: The Musical and Kat & the Kings. His childhood years were filled with the sound of harmonies and song, strongly influenced by his musically inclined father and the musical talent of his elder brother, fellow actor Luqmaan Adams.

In 1996, along with three friends and his brother, Luqmaan, Emo formed a 5-member boy band called JAG. The group soon became popular in and around the Cape, Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg for their perfect harmonies and entertaining live performances.

Although JAG still perform together as a group, Emo has over the years managed to add a history of drama, dance, music and theatre.

In 2001, he once again was cast in the production District 6: The Musical. This time he played the role of "Sophia", a dynamic, glamorous drag queen.

In 2000 Emo traveled extensively to Germany as part of the cast of David Kramer and Taliep Pietersen's Lawrence Olivier award-winning production Kat & the Kings, in which he played the role of a young singing sensation.

On being cast in the Bollywood production Fusion, which was staged at the Globe Theatre in Johannesburg in 2006, Emo performed Indian song and dance in a traditional Bollywood style.

In television, he played a lead role in the kykNET television series Alie Barber, made guest appearances on the musical game show Liriekeraai and was a guest on the talk show Dis Hoe Dit Is Met Steve, hosted by Steve Hofmeyr.

In 2007 he performed alongside Mynie Grové and many other Afrikaans artists at the annual KKNK Fees in Outdshoorn.

He then headed to the rural town of Clanwilliam where he auditioned local young school kids and spent weeks producing and directing a musical production as part of the 2007 Cederberg Festival.

Also in 2007, Emo released his first CD, "Tall, Dark & Afrikaans", which was produced by D'Six Records.

In April 2008 he appeared in the SABC2 mini-series Malan en Kie, playing the role of Solly.
