IF THERE'S one thing organisers of the annual RedSquare DJ Knockout Challenge executes astoundingly well- it is to solicit services of top notch entertainers.
Entering its 13th instalment as one of the growing concept that gives back to communities- were the brand operates its businesses- as has been the norm for years’ a bank has been broken to obtain signatures of Somizi “So Mgaga” Mhlongo and Zodwa Wabantu to co-host the grand finale at Vereeniging’s Dickson Park, December 16, 2019.
The two need no intro suffice to say it will be a battle of personalities, DJs better watch out- you’ve been warned…
Although the full line-up has not been confirmed on good authority, fans can expect to see Black Motion, Nasty C, Mahoota vs Vetkuk,A-Reece, Kabza de Small, A.K.A, and Prince Kay-Bee, Anatii, Rouge, Banger Boys, Tsheppy, Zan D, Miss Acucar and other Vaal DJs, including surprise acts.
The winning DJ takes home a whopping R150 000. The second prize pockets R15 000 and third prize R10 000, respectively.
According to the organisers top ten finalists get sponsored to attend a DJ course at Boston City Campus.
On the growth of the brand, Victor Selaelo, RedSquare Marketing Manager, says KnockOut Challenge is now a fertile ground on which the finalists could plant the seeds of their professional careers.
“This opportunity means exposure for young and up-coming DJs, drawn from all races, countrywide, hence the call to enter and register for this competition,” he said.
Selaelo also encouraged more female DJs to enter as many as possible.
This year’s line-up was determined by over fifteen thousand followers on its social media platform, Facebook.
Cassper Nyovest will not partake due to prior commitments.
