The Kings Of The Weekend, SPHEctacula and DJ Naves say I Do I Do

The Kings Of The Weekend

South Africa’s favourite dynamic DJ Duo, SPHEctacula and DJ Naves, have just released their summer 2016 single titled I Do I Do which is also the first single to be released off their sophomore album scheduled for release in March 2017.

SPHEctacula and DJ Naves’ I Do I Do features Port Elizabeth born sensation Zain SA who was recently made it to the Top 3 of SABC 1’s DJ talent search competition, 1s and 2s.

Get I Do I Do on any of the below links:

iTunes –
Deezer –
Google Play Store –
Soundcloud –

Already nicknamed “The Wedding Song”, SPHEctacula and DJ Naves’ I Do I Do featuring Zain SA is pegged to be a highly requested song and cause a pleasant stir over the next couple of months. I Do I Do is an easy vocal house single, soon-to-be classic, which shares a strong message of young love and really tugs at the heart strings over a well poised summer soundtrack.

The Kings Of The Weekend met Zain SA and the original version of this great song when he first auditioned for 1s and 2s and played it there. SPHEctacula, DJ Naves and Micasa’s Dr Duda then added their own flavour to I Do I Do which is written, sung and partly produced by Zain SA.

I Do I Do marks a new beginning for the Kings Of The Weekend as this is their first single release since becoming fully independent again as the single is released via the SPHEctacula and DJ Naves owned record label, Eminence Productions.

The country should get ready for what is expected to be another smash summer hit from the Kings Of The Weekend following their highly successful summer release of KOTW Anthem which went on to top charts all over the country last summer.

Catch the Kings Of The Weekend, SPHEctacula and DJ Naves, on the #ThePrepartySA every Saturday night between 18h00 and 20h00 on Metro FM.

Terry Pheto takes center stage at the London premiere of A United Kingdom

Terry Pheto

South Africa’s Leading Lady, Terry Pheto, showed us just why she is a leading lady as she stole the show and took center stage at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival where her latest international feature film, A United Kingdom, opened up the 60th annual festival this past Wednesday, 5 October 2016.

A United Kingdom depicts the true story of Seretse Khama and Terry Pheto plays the role of his sister, Naledi Khama.

Starring alongside a star studded cast with the likes of David Oyelowo (Selma), Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean), Tom Felton (Harry Potter), Arnold Oceng (Adulthood), Jack Lowden (’71) and Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey), Terry Pheto stood out at the BFI London Film Festival being described by the UK’s Daily Mail as:

“Stunning: Terry Pheto stole the show in a vibrant patterned dress with statement puffball sleeves”


“Centre of attention: The screen star commanded attention in her beautiful dress as she made her way down the red carpet”

Terry Pheto


Terry Pheto commanded just as much attention at the recent Botswana premiere of A United Kingdom and her recent South African Of The Year nomination and BET A-List honour, as South Africa’s most influential actress, are highly appropriate.
