The song has a rock ’n roll-edge infused with African sounds. During a guest appearance on the show, Jakkie was asked by Toks if he would write a new theme song for the show, and since Jakkie has known Toks since he was 16, he naturally said yes.

5. Food for thought – and fun

The chef, Vaatjie (Tommy Dickson), is responsible for all the food and food preparation on the show. In 2012 Tommy was given an opportunity to cook once a month as a grill expert on the show. After a few episodes he was asked to join permanently, and he has now appeared in hundreds of episodes. To complement and enhance the grilling and cooking skills he’s accumulated through years of practical experience, Tommy completed his formal chef’s qualification and was first in his class when he was student of the year in 2014 at the HTA Culinary School.
