FRANCOIS VAN COKE: New Music Video / New Conversation Series / New Livestream

Begin van die einde (Beginning of the end) is Francois van Coke’s first single and music video release of 2021.

Listen to Begin van die einde

Francois explains that the song is about “trying to be better in a time of disorienting change”.

Begin van die einde was partly inspired by Yuval Noah Harari’s book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century. Francois read the book in December 2019 and became concerned about present times. He wrote the lyrics for the song in February 2020 and not long after COVID 19 kicked in full force.

This full-throttle rock ‘n’ roll song is the perfect warm-up for the Francois van Coke & Die Gevaar Livestream on 6 March at 8pm.

The music video is a play on old school horror. Four friends go to a cabin by a lake for a weekend away. It’s all fun and games until they realize something is haunting them…

The music video was made by Dirk van Niekerk.

More about 40 Jaar Van Coke:

Francois reveals the true stories behind newspaper headlines such as “Wie het Van Coke opgef*k?” (who f*cked up Van Coke?) and “Coke soen man” (Coke kisses man).

Find out why Francois never really wanted to sing and why “Sundays are the worst”. The alcohol, the drugs, Francois’ first time in jail, stories about the love of his life, his wife Lauren and how Die Antwoord paid for her engagement ring.

It’s Francois at his highest, Francois at his lowest – it’s all here… rare, raw, in-depth and uncensored.

Above all the sensation, it is the story of Francois’ success. It’s about how a preacher’s son from the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town had a dream and how he achieved it. Get to know Francois better and how twenty years of hard work paid off.

The first 9 episodes were filmed in 2020 at Van Coke Studios in Cape Town.  The stories start with his childhood and runs through to 2020’s Francois van Coke & Vriende Livestream on his fortieth birthday.  The tenth episode will be filmed this year and will end this series in a special finale.

Annie and Francois have been friends since 2004, so these conversations flow with intimate inside knowledge, but is also super entertaining and well structured. Annie wrote her MA thesis about Fokofpolisiekar, as well as a book about the band titled Biografie van ’n Bende: Die storie van Fokofpolisiekar (published in 2011).

Francois promised Annie that she can also write his biography, but then it ended up in these conversations – a combination of a podcast, videocast and documentary, featuring rare footage to colour in the stories.
