Allow me to start with apologizing for my two week absence, I took time out to breath a bit *lol*, but best believe me when I say “I’m back with a bang”. Well enough about me, let me welcome you all to another weekly premium dosage of #kasivibes. Today I feature a local band called Konka, from Soshanguve. I’m beyond excited as we will be talking nothing but music.

••• THE END •••
Konka assures me that playing at Spring Fiesta was one of the best and memorable moment ever. Fellow colleagues like DJ Shimza, DJ Tira, DJ fresh and of course DJ Euphonic were impressed with their set. Playing at Live Amp and YOTV amongst other things is one of their wish list. Since the start of Konka they had their fair share of playing in and around Pretoria as well as sharing the stage with above mentioned DJs.
Konka is a registered music band and they have been collaborating together way before they came together to form Konka. With that said all the best to Konka and of course they should always keep in mind why they started Konka.
Till next week as I feature another local brand. Nothing but God’s love, peace and blessings upon you all.
