11 | 11 | 15
This past weekend was a proper blast out in Khayelitsha with Viceroy's Makoya Mix DJ finals. The event was what we would list as EPIC with a build up of DJ acts that led up to Dj Sbonga (Sbongakonke Buthelezi) from Eshowe KZN being announced as the winner of the Viceroy Makoya Mix DJ Search 2015!
The top five finalists battled it out at Buyel'Embo Village, Mandela Park ekasi this past weekend. The five finalists played under the watchful eye of a preselected panel of judges and an independent auditor audited the whole process. DJ Sbonga walked away with a career-boosting prize valued at R100 000 that includes an opportunity to produce a single under the guidance of the Makoya Mix Mentors. DJ Sbonga’s great love for music as a youngster and his never give up attitude has led him to this victory.
We are told that this was the third time he entered the competition and he knew for a fact that this time would be different. "The road to the final event was full of challenges because every finalist wants to shine and prove that they are the ultimate champion. I went in and played my set with confidence and just had fun and now I am the champion" said DJ Sbonga.
The Makoya Mix DJ Search competition has been unearthing talent for the past five years and the involvement of DJ Christos, DJ Tira and Naked DJ as mentors has seen the standard of the competition change each and every year. Oupa Lehaha the Marketing Manager at Viceroy said “We would like to see more and more youth coming through to take part, we know that our country has great talent, and with the help of our mentors we can take this competition to greater heights”.
Well now... Look which hights the competition has placed DJ Sbonga on? A R100,000 worth experience and chance to produce his very in track. Congratulations to the winner and the the top five who did their level best.
