The creators of Brother Love are back and this time they’re bringing their daddy along.
Emo and Loukmaan Adams will be joined by their equally famous dad Omar, aka Boeta Maan, for the first-ever Father Love live stream show.
Emo, 42, and big brother Loukmaan, 45, planned it so that the show falls on Father’s Day on Sunday, 21 June, to make it extra special for their 75-year-old dad.
The brothers say they are excited to be starring alongside their father, the founder of Kinders van die Ses theatre group, and also look forward to sharing their childhood memories and their own experience of fatherhood on this show.
Emo says the show is a tribute to the man who introduced them to showbiz: “We want to say thank you for taking us to the Kaapse Klopse against our will, thank you for taking us to the Malay choirs against our will and thank you for introducing us to theatre because if you didn’t do that, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
“Besides the music and the jokes, the show will be conversational, I’d like to know why my father doesn’t have teeth because since I was born, I’ve never seen him with teeth, and that bothered me. I’d like to know the story behind that,” he jokes.
“As brothers, me and Loukmaan will discuss our fatherhood experiences and compare him having just girl children to me having just boys. It really is a father’s bonding session.”
Loukmaan thinks his toppie is definitely going to steal the show: “I think my dad is a natural performer even when he is in a normal situation, he always has a comment about everything and it comes to him naturally, he is going to be the star of the show.”
It will also be a first for Boeta Maan, who is used to having a live audience, to be part of an online show.
“I look forward to doing this online streaming with them,” he says.
“I’m so proud of my sons, especially because they don’t forget their roots, they always invest in their community and culture.”
To watch the show, you need to buy a ticket from Quicket at R150.
You will receive an online link to watch the 90-minute show on 21 June at 2pm.
