The Bok Radio Wes Kaapse Bokkie Toekennings were introduced in 2011 to acknowledge and celebrate local performers, sports people and radio personalities. The concept has proved to be extremely popular amongst Afrikaans music fans, with over 5 000 people attending the event at the Grand Arena the following year. A capacity crowd is expected again this year to watch performers compete in various categories such as Best Artist, Best Song, Best Album, Best Group, Best Newcomer and Best Music Video amongst others. Sports stars will also be awarded.
