Mzansi’s popular showbiz royal, Zodwa Wabantu, will MC at the RedSquare DJ KnockOut media and per-invite only launch on Saturday. Idols SA’s judge Somizi ‘Somgaga’ Mhlongo is billed to join Zodwa on December 16, to co-host and entertain at the must-attend DJ KnockOut final.
“The RedSquare DJ Knockout Challenge has become a year-end party for young music, entertainment and lifestyle fans. So, since there was a sense of the patron’s ownership of the experience offered at the Knockout, it only made sense to engage them on who they would want to see performing at the final,” said Victor Selaelo, RedSquare Marketing Manager.
The RedSquare DJ Knockout subscribes to an age-old truth about the most successful businesses allowing customers the space to have an input in shaping the service or product offered to satisfie their desires or needs.
This year’s line-up for the RedSquare DJ KnockOut Challenge was mainly determined by DJ KnockOut’s over fifteen thousand followers on its social media platform, Facebook. Topping the list of artists demanded by the audience was the growing bigger and bigger artist and performer Nasty C.
Cassper Nyovest was voted second but had to pull out of the KnockOut Challenge because of pre-arranged personal engagement a day before the DJ Knockout final.
A-Reece, Kabza de Small, A.K.A, and Prince Kay-Bee were among other acts voted for to be part of the annual major lifestyle event that is hosted by the river-side. Still to be announced were local artists from the Vaal, Y-FM DJ’s and few more top surprise acts.
There were exciting developments on the battle segment of the RedSquare DJ Knockout Challenge. Stakes have been upped, with prize money for the overall winner increased from R120 000 to R150 000. The second prize was moved from R10 000 to R15 000 and third prize from R5 000 to R10 000. Once more, the top ten finalists get sponsored to attend a DJ course at Boston City Campus.
Over twelve thousand patrons attended the 2018 RedSquare Dj KnockOut Challenge final at Dickinson Park, Vereeniging. Most form part of throngs following the competition on social media.
“The growth of the RedSquare DJ KnockOut Challenge was great news for all emerging DJ’s making the final cut. It means getting exposed to and presented with an opportunity to make an impression in front of a broader audience. The KnockOut Challenge is now fertile ground on which the finalists could plant the seeds of their professional careers,” said Selaelo.
