Nipper you sound like my wife. She says she hates Afrikaans music because its all shit pop but then she listens to happy clappy church music. I have pointed out to her that it's all the same just with different lyrics. All countries have bands making music in their native language covering different genres. You would most probably not like German Pop partially because you don't understand the language and therefore it does not resonate with you and also it will sound "not right". But in essential the actual music is the same if you remove the lyrics.
Personally when it comes to Afrikaans music I prefer old school Rock like Koos Kombuis and Anton Goosen. Some of the newer Rock is also not bad.
Klopjag, Glaskas, Spoegwolf, Van Coke Cartel, Zinkplaat, Bouwer Bosch, Karen Zoid, Heuwels Fantasties, One Crown, Moses Metro Man, Die Melktert Kommissie, Duislig, Die Tuindwergies, Radio Kalahari Orkes are all very good bands.
