It’s all systems go this Sunday, at Wits Football Stadium, as four teams will battle for the coveted trophy and a R100 000.00 winning Prize.
The tournament, a brain child of Khuzani Mpungose and Siyabonga Nene (Big Zulu), who staged the first tournament on 10 August 2021 at Sandton Sports Complex, will now see four (4) representing Maskandi, Hip-hop, Gqom, and AmaPiano, fight it all out and lay a claim as to who is the fittest and skilful of them all.
Unable to contain his excitement, Khuzani, said:
“We started this tournament with just a vision to inspire young people to be involved in sporting activities, apart from their love for music.
All we had was a dream and a passion. Today, that dream has become a reality, and we thank all the captains, teams and the sponsors who have shown such great support enthusiasm for this beautiful game.”
Big Zulu, who is not much about talk, just said:
“Mina ngifisa ukuba nemali eningi and I am now focussing on my team taking home R125 000.00 in total, and the trophy; then we can talk about anything else. For now, all I can say is ziyakhala ngeSonto”.
Both Khuzani and Big Zulu have just
revealed a total of R250 000.00 for the teams, where each team will get R25 000.00 just for participating, whilst the second place team will get an additional R50 000.00 and the one that lifts the trophy will walk away with another R100 000.00.
The announcement has gotten the Team Captains and the team, Dj Tira (Gqom), Kabza de Small (AmaPiano), Big Zulu (Hip-Hop) and Khuzani (Maskandi) more energized and thanks to the sponsors, iCebolethu, Dept of Sport, Arts and Culture, Score, iTel and Allied Consortiums who have made this possible, either through cash contributions or services.
