Francois Van Coke is unstoppable. He wowed fans at his world-class Francois Van Coke En Vriende show at Time Square in Menlyn Maine last weekend and just when we thought he was going to enjoy some well-deserved time off, the rocker announced that his brand-new TV show, simply titled ‘Die Van Coke Show’, is coming to KykNet from 8 October!
The show is a fun mix between a game show, music show and a talk show where guests take on each other to win the grand prize of absolutely nothing. The show, in true Francois Van Coke style, is fun and quirky where the guests and host don’t take anything too seriously.
The idea for a show started sometime last year when C-Saw Productions approached the rocker to create something different and unique for the popular Afrikaans channel. The production company used all of Francois’ interests to make something quirky and fun – and the show promises to stand out from the rest of the content on the channel. The star also roped in fellow Fokofpolisiekar band members Hunter Kennedy and Wynand Myburgh to work behind the scenes and ensure that everything runs smoothly behind the scenes.
The concept is simple. Every week, two teams will compete in some quick-fire Q&A sessions. They will also be taking a look at a few of the incredible but true music videos from the weird and wonderful internet. Team captains that will frequent the show, include: Cindy Swanepoel (Binnelanders), Jonathan (Radio Raps), Solomon Cupido (Mense Mense), Beer Adriaanse (Hotel, Fynskrif) and Quanita Adams (Sara se geheim).
Are you excited to watch ‘Die Van Coke Show’ when it premieres on KykNet (DStv 144) on 8 October at 20h30?
