THE CLOCK is fast ticking to find out who will be this year’s RedSquare DJ KnockOut Challenge winner.
So fast and furious that the RedSquare drink stock had to be tripled as a result of sell-out tickets for the grande finale, scheduled for December 16 (Sunday) at the Dickinson Park-Vereeniging.
Monday is a holiday-so DO NOT press any panic buttons- assomblief, after-all ke December.
Lately, everything is about innovation and the organisers have meted or hatched a plan: patrons that already have their tickets to the KnockOut challenge are encouraged to participate in a mini fashion and beauty parade where they can show off their swag or ‘mswenko’ and stand a chance to win fantastic prizes, whose theme is “Look Summer Hot” – in colors that best suite you. Aha…
Ok, back to serious business, established as a youth empowerment initiative made possible by Halewood International, 12 years ago the KnockOut has produced household brands that have gone to make it both locally and internationally, as part of youth empowerment and job creation in the country.
A product of this amazing initiative and globetrotter DJ Shimza (Tembisa born) will be on the decks alongside SAs’ sought-after namely Christos, Vinni da Vinnci, Lulo Cafe and Kanunu.
“I always look forward to the event b’cos it has a special place in my heart, hence I always give my best as a form art and entertaining the fans,” gloated DJ Shimza accompanied by a naughty smile, during exclusive interview to mark his 10th year edition of the Shimza’s One-Man Show.
On December 16 2018 either a female or male DJ will walk away with a cool R130 000 as a first prize.
But he/she will have to convince Judges such as Tshepo Junior (Jozi FM), King Nation (FS), DJ Zidane (Pta) firstly, in the presence of thousands of revelers anticipated on the day.
AKA, Casper Nyovest, Lady Zamar, S’java, Destruction Boys; Black Motion, Pencil, Tshepy, King DeeToy, prime-time Y-FM DJs Sabby, breakfast host Uncle Tap and Zan D, and other local vinylists, will do damage to the stage. Yes, pun intended…
On the issue of “Look Summer Hot” Victor Selaelo, marketing manager at Halewood commented: “We have observed in the last couple of years that many of those attending the RedSquare Dj KnockOut Challenge make a special effort to look real good, if not great, from head-to-toe.
There are those that really dress to kill, others attire to be seen or to reveal; and then there are those that deck-out just to express their sense of being free.
All of them, their great sense of style and beauty really adds fantastic colour to the event and deserves some compliment in one way or another.
So, we thought it would be good to throw-in one or two rewards for those that will be coming to the final this year and happen to be at the top of their looks game.
We see this element of the event as the beginning of something that may become an important feature, from an audience perspective, of the KnockOut Challenge.”
Confirming that it does really pay to look great and your best; a stylishly dressed couple will get R3000 in cash with Halewood products and or merchandise and a spiffy looking individual will walk home with R2000 and also some niceties such as RedSquare ciders.
If there are any available- tickets start from R150 at Ticketpros and R150 thereafter and R200 at the gates on December 16, with cooler box charged at R50. VIP R600.
Who will get that sucker punch be at the venue to witness that much awaited fall ? (no idabala ne)
It begins from 12pm 16 December till 06H00.
