Soweto born star, DJ Mr X, invited everyone to come celebrate his birthday with him on the 24th of June 2016 at the House Of Deep in Dube, Soweto.
Over 40 DJs were on the line up and we also expected performances by the hip hop duo Mad On Dough, as well as Cashtime Life’s Ma-E and Maggz. The line up was pretty massive for tickets that ranged from R50 to R80.
MTV’s Sandile Ntshingile was a great MC, he easily connected with the crowd. Ma-E and Maggz’ performance had everyone going crazy, with people singing along to their favorite songs. It was amazing. All hip hop and house DJs put on a great show and played a major role in making this night a fun and an unforgettable one.
What I liked about this event was that there were two dance floors, the house floor upstairs for the deep-house lovers and the hip hop floor downstairs for all the hip hop fans. There was also a nice, cosy smoking area outside with comfortable couches and heaters to keep the area warm. The venue was full to its capacity and the smoking area basically looked like another dance floor on its own.
The only criticism I have is that there weren’t enough bathrooms and I also think that there should’ve been two bars instead of one.
Special shoutout to everyone that braved the cold weather and attended DJ Mr X’s all black birthday celebration.
