If you thought last weekend was the weekend for Thulukuthi Hey, then you have to reconsider because Euphonik has only just begun.

Real name Themba Nkosi, the renowned house music DJ will stage a one-of-a-kind concert on Saturday, August 12 at Icon Soweto.

When he woke up on Tuesday morning, Euphonik was on a mission to make the Tholukuthi Concert a success and if the responses on Twitter are anything to go by, he's well underway to achieving the goal.

The idea of the concert was born from Euphonik's interactions with Killer Kau and Mbali Sikwane whom he'd discovered on social media after their videos went viral.

In their videos, Kau was singing over and dancing to the instrumentals of Destruction Boyz "Shut up and Groove" while Sikwane had taken up the #Tholukuthi challenge.

Within a day, Euphonik had recorded a song with the duo.
He vowed to stage a concert in Soweto because both youngsters are from the area and that it would be a great celebration of talent.

The 33-year-old has asked some of the who's who in the entertainment industry to be part of the concert.

Here's what we know so far:

1. Pearl Thusi will host the gig:

2. Radio and club DJs Sphectacula (Sphe Ngwenya) and Naves (Lebogang Naves) have opened up their venue for the concert.

3. DJs Tira, Capital, Cleo, Lerato Kganyago are on the line-up:
