It is with sad hearts that The Kings Of The Weekend, SPHEctacula and DJ Naves, bid farewell to Metro FM after 7 years on The Preparty.
The official announcement was made this morning on the Fresh Breakfast Show. The dynamic duo will host their last Preparty show on Metro FM this Saturday, 29 April 2017 from 6 – 8pm.
Make sure to tune in.
To the listeners, SPHEctacula and DJ Naves express: “Thank you for allowing us into your cars, homes and hearts over the past 7 years.
The Preparty was a huge success because of all of YOU that tuned in every Saturday. We are eternally grateful for your unwavering support.
Leaving The Preparty is a bold step for us to grow, get out of our comfort zones and challenge ourselves to achieve more. We hope you continue to follow us on our journey, wherever that may lead.”
South African’s have come to love the dynamic duo on air since they joined the radio station in May 2010.
The Pre-party was not only a platform that strengthened the brotherly bond between SPHEctacula and DJ Naves, but provided an avenue for urban South Africans to engage in discussions on matters relevant to them in a youthful manner whilst enjoying the best music mixes as they pre-partied.
New club owners of the sophisticated clubbing venue Icon Soweto, and promoting an upcoming EP called The Kings Way with hit singles, I Do I Do and Believe; The Kings Of The Weekend, SPHEctacula and DJ Naves, will definitely still be a part of the South African “pre-party” culture in one form or another.
Make sure to tune into Metro FM this Saturday from 6 – 8pm for The Kings Of The Weekend last Preparty show and follow them on social media for updates on their music and entrepreneurial journeys. You can also catch them on Season 4 of their hit DJ and Producer search reality TV show 1s and 2s airing on 16 May 2017 at 9pm on SABC 1.
