For the entire month of February, ESC Covers will take every day a South African artist/group/duo on a virtual tour to Europe. We will visit 28 countries.
On Saturday 25 July 2020 ESC COVERS will launch the COVER2COVER competition. In category one are 14 songs by South African artists that are covers of EUROVISION songs (actual entries or selection songs or Eurovision related because of the original artist who was an entry at Eurovision or by the composers who had written a Eurovision entry). We will list all 14 in the next days, the Afrikaans cover plus the original song.
The fourteenth song is EK VAL VIR JOU by MONIQUE STEYN & SNOTKOP plus the original song LOOSE CONTROL by WALDO’S PEOPLE.
This is a Eurovision entry. It was the entry from FINLAND in 2009. The Afrikaans cover became the biggest ever hit of a Finnish original song and sold many more copies than the original song.
In 2o09 Waldo’s people represented Finland with their song LOOSE CONTROL. Monique & Snotkop covered it in Afrikaans as EK VAL VIR JOU.
Ek val vir jou – Monique & Snotkop
Loose control – Waldo’s people
