The festival, which is hosted in partnership with the City Times, welcomes their homeboy Themba Nkosi (Euphonik) back to Benoni and St Dunstan’s College.

“If I was not from Benoni, I would not be Euphonik,” said the DJ, who is a former St Dunstan’s learner.

“I moved to Daveyton from Mpumalanga when I was two years old.

“I lived in Daveyton until I was seven and then moved to Lakefield until the age of 22.”

According to the DJ, music was always his passion.

“While everyone else was at physical education, I would wangle myself out of it to listen to music,” he said.

Despite his dislike for sports, Euphonik thanks the subject of English for his name.

“One day we were writing an essay in English, and I came across Euphonic in the dictionary,” he said.

“The name means ‘appealing sound’, so I dropped the ‘c’ in Euphonic and replaced it with a ‘k’ and that’s where my name come from.”

During Euphonik’s visit to St Dunstan’s College he decides to stop at one of the classrooms to have a photo taken with Grade Nine learners.

To the DJ, music is a form of freedom in which he can express himself and a form of escape.

He is also interested in sharing his knowledge with others, who he mentors.

“Sharing your knowledge in the industry is important,” he said.

“If I help and mentor someone who ends up doing better than I have, for me it is a motivation.”

He told festival-goers to expect his A-Game at the festival and to come ready to have fun.

“Every festival needs party animals so be comfortable and just come to have a good time,” Euphonik added.

Lastly, he advised upcoming artists to be true to themselves.

“Remember why you are in the music industry,” he said.

“You are here to make music and to play music.”
