  • The first season of his TV show, Die Van Coke Show, aired in 2018.
  • His third solo album, Dagdrome in Suburbia, released in October 2019. Van Coke has always had an affinity for music.
  • Moving to Boston, Bellville, Western Cape in early childhood where he grew up, he participated in high school in a battle of the bands competition where he performed the vocals for the band.
  • He was later kicked out of the band, which put him off performing vocals for a while.
  • Van Coke's strong Christian upbringing (his father was a pastor) led him to create the Christian band AS180.
  • Van Coke established himself in the Bellville underground music scene by forming the band "A Guy Called Gerald", which later changed its name to "New World Inside".
  • Van Coke then co-founded the rock band Fokofpolisiekar.
  • The band was initially started as a joke to shock the widely conservative Afrikaans community.
  • Van Coke recalls that, "My mom cried for a day or two when she heard the name of the band".
  • After initial performances his father asked him to change his surname from "Badenhorst" to "Van Coke", as his father, being a minister, was receiving complaints about his son's performances from the local church-going community.
