DJ Maphorisa to headline RAW Thursdays at Onyx

Taking to social media, the nightclub has announced that DJ Maphorisa will be headlining this week’s RAW Thursdays event on Thursday, 27 September 2018.

Popular Sandton nightclub Onyx will be hosting DJ Maphorisa for this week’s RAW Thursdays event on Thursday, 27 September 2018. The nightclub has listed Tasteyy, Seb, Magnum and Nel as the supporting acts.

In a tweet sent on Tuesday, 25 September 2018, the club extended their welcome to DJ Maphorisa, expressing that this is the DJ’s first appearance at the club.

Maphorisa is one of South Africa’s most successful and celebrated record producers and has worked with various international artists including Wizkid, Kwesta, Runtown, Uhuru, Black Coffee, Major Lazer and Drake.

Since co-producing Drake’s hit single ‘One Dance,’ he has gained global recognition. Maphorisa revealed that he was working on Wizkid’s album when the opportunity to contribute to Drake’s song arose and notes that the song was completed in a week.

“I was recording Wiz when they sent the files. There was nothing really there. We started working on it, I added some production,” he commented in an interview with Genius on Tuesday, 12 April 2016.

Maphorisa recently released the chart-topping hit ‘iWalk Ye Phara’ which features former Teargas member KO, Zulu Mkhathini (formerly known as Dash from DreamTeam) and Moonchild Sanelly. The producer also refuted claims that the song was stolen from Gqom musician TDK Macassette, claiming that she is “acting crazy.”

Raw Thursdays is presented by Ciroc South Africa and New North ZA. Doors open at 22:00
