2020 marked 10 years of SPHEctacula And DJ Naves a.k.a Kings Of The Weekend, South Africa’s most loved DJ duo. This milestone was well celebrated with the music they released in 2020 achieving top status. The duo cemented their place on the throne as Kings of the Weekend with both of their 2020 single releases being listed in the Top 10 of the Top 200 songs on South African radio for 2020.
This comes as a much-welcomed achievement for the two as airplay is the most credible rating scale for South African artists to gauge their success with the public. Their take on music has been well received by the public, which goes to show that the KOTW are doing something right.
The official list, published by RadioMonitor includes their single Okokoko, a refreshing feel good summer jam which the legendary kwaito star Thebe and Idols SA judge, Unathi Nkayi; as well as their most recent single Thelumoya, a spiritual track featuring the Jaziel brothers.
(Thelumoya had debuted at number 1).Both singles were placed at number 8 and 10 on the Radio Monitor Annual RAMS chart giving the duo a well-earned reason to celebrate as they head into 2021. The duo is appreciative that both songs were received this well as Thelumoya carried a message of hope and whilst Okokoko carried a message of longevity.
Over and above the musical successes of 2020, KOTW also celebrated 10 years of being the multi-faceted team we have come to know, love and enjoy in the entertainment industry. Sphectacula and DJ Naves continue to grace our radios as the hosts of The Kings Suite, Metro FM’s much loved afternoon drive show from 3-6pm.
The team have more exciting things to come as they prepare for the release of a new album in April 2021. As listeners we wait for the new album in much anticipation especially after their successful run with their 2020 singles combined with their ability to bring both new and iconic talent together as well as staying on brand with their powerful collaborations.
