FOKOFPOLISIEKAR has proven once again why they are South Africa’s premier rock band. Over the weekend they took home the South African Music Award (SAMA) for Best Rock Album. The album, Selfmedikasie, was released in September 2017 and made big waves because of the record breaking crowdfunding campaign. The band’s previous full length album, Swanesang, also won a SAMA as the Best Afrikaans Rock album 11 years ago (2007).
Fokofpolisiekar will undertake their one-and-only tour for 2018 kicking off at the end of June and will showcase exactly why they remain one of the country’s top bands 15 years after their inception.
During the tour crowds can look forward to a powerful 90-minute set filled with old and new anthems. This set will be in the same vein as the show at Kirstenbosch Summer Concert earlier this year where Fokofpolisiekar’s poignant ballad, Komma was filmed. This music video was released on 27th February 2018 and already boasts over 240 000 views.
