Snotkop Live - Pretoria
Event Type: Music, Concerts
South African pop sensation Snotkop brings his high-energy show to The Carousel Casino and Entertainment World`s Cheyenne Saloon. It`s hard to believe he`s been rocking the charts for over a decade now, and he shows no signs of stopping anytime soon!
His 2012 album `Ek Laaik Van Jol` went platinum and picked up a SAMA, while his latest, `Oppas` had already reached gold status just 6 weeks after release. The title track from `Ek Laaik Van Jol` was a nationwide party anthem ? in stark contrast to, but no less successful than the heartbreaking` Song vir my Dad`, written just a week before his father passed away. 4 of his 5 albums have been nominated for SAMAS and he also boasts nominations of MK, Tempo and Vonk awards.
Snotkop is one of the country`s most popular artists, and never fails to win audiences over with his talent, passion, music and infectious energy! He`s sold over 150 000 albums and taken the music industry by storm - not bad for a boy from Randburg, with big dreams! Born Francois Henning, Snotkop studied drama at Tshwane University. He`s proof that hard work and dedication lead to success - he`d been sending recordings of his work to record companies from a young age when he was finally signed in 2002 to put together his first album. Performing as Lekgoa - the country`s `first white kwaito star`, the album was a runaway success, winning him fans from Soweto to Gaborone. He shared stages with Soul Brothers and the Mahotella Queens in France and the UK, with CNN producing a documentary about him and his phenomenal performances.
