During his session at the #RayBanLive activation on Saturday at Oppikoppi, I spoke to Francois Van Coke about his nerves in the wake of his biggest solo show to-date, as well as the questionable things that he’s seen at Oppikoppi over the thirteen or so times that he’s performed there with his various bands.
The fires are always burning at Francois Van Coke’s camp – I’ve never known him to not be plotting his next big thing, but I wasn’t ready for his answer when I asked him what projects he was working on or involved in. The singer announced that Fokof Bar would be opening in Pretoria (genius move) very soon and that construction had already begun. And the ous in the front row went mal.
Admittedly I should have seen this coming. Frannie was wearing a t-shirt that said FOKOF BAR on it in big, bold white font. Vergewe my.
Spearheaded by Fokof Lager head honcho, Jaco Snakehead Venter, in conjunction with Arcade Empire’s Robert Pereira, I foresee many a jol at Fokof Bar.
Watch this space for the official details for Fokof Bar’s opening.
