Must Watch: Farmer sokkie dancing with his gate kicks off 2018 with a laugh

A farmer has gone viral with a video of him Sokkie dancing with his farm gate and we can’t stop laughing.


South Africa has had many rough starts to the New Year in the past on social media but if this video is anything to go by then it looks like 2018 may just be a year filled with laughs!

Kobus King created the video of Johan Naude doing the Sokkie dance, which has already been viewed nearly 200 000 times in a matter of days.

Sokkie is a style of music and dance that is unique to Southern Africa and popular mostly with Afrikaners. It is also a ballroom dance.

The video is simple but funny and South Africans cannot stop watching and sharing the post.

“For every boerseun (farmer) out there. Enjoy your farms. It’s a privilege to open your own plaashek (farm gate).”
