For the very first time in the history of the South African music industry, DSTV will be releasing a live recording of a gig with added documentary style interview like the well know MTV Unplugged sessions. Francois Van Coke and Karen Zoid’s full-length Toe Vind Ek Jou rock ‘n roll show will be available on DSTV’s BoxOffice from Friday, 6th of November.
The Toe Vind Ek Jou live concerts have been so popular that nearly all of these shows were sold out this year. BoxOffice gives fans the opportunity to watch this explosive show at home at any time.
“This song changed my life completely.” Francois van Coke
“This colab is rock ‘n rock, it’s personal, it’s beautiful.” Karen Zoid
In their wildest dreams Francois and Karen could not foresee how popular Toe Vind Ek Jou would turn out to be. This enchanting song broke records and has won an OFM award for Local Song of the Year and a Silver Pendoring for the music video.
It was the first Afrikaans album (Francois van Coke debut solo album) and single to simultaneously jump to number 1 positions on the SA iTunes Store this year. The song was downloaded more than 20 000 times on iTunes thus reaching Platinum status as a single.
The music video for Toe Vind Ek Jou was viewed over a million times within 6 month, which is unheard of for an Afrikaans music video.
