One moment “Tholukuthi Hey” is just a simple lyric in a short video recorded and shared on Twitter by an unknown Killer Kau. And the next moment it is on the NEXT LEVEL, going viral on social media
It was Euphonik who spotted the talent in the young student, Killer Kau, and quickly reached out to him, offering to collaborate in making a full-length song to hit the airwaves like never before.
Within no time, another video, showing a young school girl, Mbali Sikwane, singing the“Tholukuthi Hey” lyrics started going viral. This made Euphonik’s day a very busy one as he went around looking for both Killer Kau and Mbali, to put them together in the song. Next thing, they are in studio, mastering this hit single.
As if that was not enough, Killer Kau tested the song in a club, performing first at KONG (Rosebank) then Taboo (Sandton.) The reception of the song was nothing short of WOW.
Euphonik in collaboration with Vodacom NXT LVL will be hosting a CONCERT headlining both Killer Kau and Mbali.
The concert was initially meant to be held at ICON SOWETO, a venue that would have accommodated about 600 people. Now, with the support of Vodacom NXT LVL and other big names in the entertainment industry, it will take place at ZONE 6 Soweto, a venue that houses a whopping 3000 people.
“Firstly, the song is a hit and has become a spring board for young Killer Kau and Mbali. Vodacom NXT LVL is all about providing platforms for exposure for the youth. So, we had to come in and support this initiative. Even better, Euphonik is a mentor in our upcoming “THE NXT LVL” TV show that will premiere in October. So, it only made sense that we get involved,” says Veli Mabena, EHOD Brand & comms, Vodacom.
Heavyweights like DJ Cleo, DJ Tira, Maphorisa, pH, Capital, Lerato Kganyago, Euphonik himself and many more will be there.
The concert will be streamed LIVE on youtube from 12am to 1am on Sunday allowing Vodacom users to use their #MegYourDay data to stream for free.
The track itself, Tholukuthi Hey, is available for download on JOOX, also free to listen to and download with #MegYourDay on Fridays.
