Hey Jy ! Your new Afrikaans pop hit on repeat.

2 min read

This upbeat song with a positive message, featuring SAKKIE and rocker, Francois van Coke, will have you moving in your seat and remind you about what’s really important: to love and respect each other.

This song sees Francois veer from his comfort zone to pop without sacrificing his distinctive mark. “When SAKKIE approached me to be a part of this song, I immediately liked what I heard,” Francois says.

Hey Jy is co-written by Fokofpolisiekar bandmates, Hunter Kennedy and Johnny de Ridder.

Upon further inquiry about why SAKKIE and Francois wanted to record a song together, straight answers were not forthcoming:

SAKKIE: “Francois van Coke is the coolest guy on the planet and I just wanted to be in his presence and smell what he smells like.”

Francois: “Sakkie looks very cool in photos and I wanted to share in his glory.”

What is Hey Jy about? Hunter Kennedy explains:

“Nobody knows what is going on. Hell, these days nobody can agree about what the truth is. Let’s focus on what is important. To love and respect each other. It feels like there’s a shortage of good vibrations, so I hope this song adds the drop that overflows the bucket.”
