40 jaar van Coke: Conversation series

40 Jaar Van Coke – Francois van Coke conversation series

In this conversation series Francois van Coke divulges the most he has ever done about his life and career. In ten intimate and revealing conversations he tells Annie Klopper the kind of stories he only tells his close friends; stories so wild that they never made it to mainstream media.

Francois reveals the true stories behind newspaper headlines such as "Wie het Van Coke opgef*k?" (who fucked 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.

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 and photo’s to colour in the stories.
