Soweto’s hot “millionaire’s playground” Konka has hosted several of Mzansi’s top artists. The likes of DJ Maphorisa, Kabza De Small, Cassper Nyovest and AKA have all taken to the Konka stage to wow the crowds.
Fans were stunned to hear that the popular nightclub would be bringing Grammy award-winning rapper Drake all the way to South Africa. The official Konka social media account however quickly shut down the rumours, but at least gave fans a glimmer of hope for the future by saying: “One day is one day”.

Drake and South African DJ and producer Black Coffee collaborated on the Canadian rapper’s track Get It Together in 2018. The track heavily sampled Black Coffee’s hit Superman featuring songstress Bucie.
The two Grammy-nominated artists have been spotted together at Turks and Caicos islands in the Bahamas along with Drake’s producer Noah “40” Shebib. Does this mean we could be expect another collaboration between the two greats soon?
