Francois Van Coke, on Valentine’s Day becoming a Rockstar dad

He’s known for his rock and roll lifestyle, as lead vocalist and founding member of two of SA’s leading rock bands, Fokofpolisiekar and The Van Coke Kartel, so what does he have planned for Valentine’s Day?


His plan for the day was to try to balance all of his loves in one day! He’s currently on tour for the release of his second solo album, Hiedie is die Lewe, but wanted to still try and treat the two beautiful women in his life!


As a newbie father to 4 months old daughter, Alex Lila, Francois has had to try and find a balance between fatherhood and his music & fans.

Finding that balance is not easy especially when you are responsible for more than just yourself.


This had motivated him to try and live a healthier and look at things like his diet.


Francois’new album is available in stores nation-wide, on iTunes and Google Play, at Francois launch tour shows and on vinyl from Permanent Record.

A music video for Dit Raak Beter (It Gets Beter) accompanies the album’s release and gives us a look into his life growing up.
