NEW BOKKE SONG WITH LEON SCHUSTER
In 1995 Leon Schuster had a massive hit with the song "Hie Kommie Bokke". Coincidentally, The Springboks won the Rugby World Cup that year.
24 years later and Leon and his long-time collaborator, Don Clarke, are about to release a song for the Rugby World Cup 2019. And there's every chance that the Bokke will win again this time!
The song is called HEY BOKKE! and is an adaption of the 1960 hit HEY BABY, the chorus of which is still sung by many South Africans in stadiums around the country. Leon and Don have only used the chorus of the song, and have changed it to:
WE WANNA KNOW-OW
WILL YOU BRING IT HOME?!"
The song has been produced by Don in his Howick studio, and features the Drakondale Girls Choir, and the Michaelhouse Choir. This past weekend, Leon came down to Howick to sing the final vocals, and do a shoot with the two choirs for the lyric video that Don is making. This video will be uploaded to YouTube by the end of this week.
The song is a really fun, inspirational, amusing, up-tempo piece of music which is bound to be a crowd pleaser, and Leon & Don are hoping it will be embraced by rugby supporters country wide.
