Fokofpolisiekar was formed in 2003 when a group of friends from Bellville in Cape Town decided to start an Afrikaans rock band.

In the years since their inception, they have garnered a plethora of fans in their home country and the band became a household name.

Wynand Myburgh and Hunter Kennedy were in on the prank and the rest of the band had no idea what their next move should be!

The prank formed part of a movie, ‘Ek Joke Net 2’, which premiered in cinemas in 2014.

In late 2003, they released their first EP, 'As Jy Met Vir Speel Sal Jy Brand' (If You Play With Fire You Will Burn) and one of its tracks, Hemel op die Platteland (Heaven in the Countryside), made history when it became the first Afrikaans song to be officially played on radio.
