The hit song, Op Ons Eie, by Loki Rothman, for the latest teen romcom, Jou Romeo, now has it’s own music video.

The song was released to radio stations nationwide during the week of October 17 and is also available on the Afrikaans is Groot Vol. 9 album, currently available in music stores. Loki was also responsible for the soundtrack of the film.

Loki has already mastered most guitar genres, has a compelling voice, writes imaginative original lyrics and is a successful music producer too.

Op Ons Eie is Loki’s first original Afrikaans song.

Jou Romeo is a film for the whole family. Marko Marais (Ruan Wessels) is the most popular guy in Hoërskool Monument – not only is he a jock, but also a cricket star and heartthrob. He and the drama geek, Yvette (Elani Dekker), are two worlds apart, but true love prevails in this story about romance, Shakespeare, cricket, friendship and unconditional acceptance. When Romeo and Juliet, the play that Yvette and her best friend, Tyler (Christopher van der Westhuizen), have been planning since the eighth grade, is jeopardised by their sports-fanatic principal, Kirby Potgieter (Pierre Breytenbach), who cuts the arts and culture budget, Yvette decides to call in Marko’s help. But she doesn’t have Marko’s best interests at heart … Yvette later realises that there is more to Marko than just being a jock with a charming smile and loads of fans. And suddenly, Marko also starts seeing the fiery redhead from a different perspective … Does it mean that Marko is actually Yvette’s real-life Romeo and she his Juliet?

Diaan Lawrence, Dirk Stoltz, Row-Lean, Sarahann Doherty and Carmin Coetzer also feature in Jou Romeo. The film explores interesting themes about belonging, recognising the value of others and the ability to see unusual qualities in others. Add a dash of romance with a sprinkle of love and this is the perfect summer film to enjoy.

Jou Romeo was produced by The Film Factory, opens in theatres countrywide on December 23 and is released by Ster-Kinekor Entertainment.
