Motswako stars Khuli Chana, Tuks, HHP headline Channel O Youth Day tribute

Motswako innovators Khuli Chana, Tuks Senganga, the late HHP and many more will feature on Channel O Youth Day TV programming on Sunday (June 16), culminating in a special concert on the day honouring South African culture innovators at Zone 6 venue in Diepkloof, Soweto.

Channel 0 (DStv 320) will on Sunday pay tribute to the historic June 16 Youth Day for two consecutive years with an epic event at Zone 6 venue in Diepkloof.

This initiative is not only a remembrance of the past struggles but more importantly a vibrant celebration of the present and the future of South African youth.

“Youth Over Everything’ highlights the youth, their plights, their dreams and encouraging them to take charge of their narratives and shape their destinies,” organisers said in a statement.

As a beacon of youth culture in Mzansi, Channel O not only echoes the rich cultural diversity, but propels young creators, hustlers and influencers forward by giving them a voice to share their stories and celebrate the dynamic and young voices of today.

“The youth of South Africa are on the forefront of changing the mindsets of society by continuously being brave, creative and innovative. Music has been one of the main vehicles used to pioneer change”, Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at Multichoice said.

Zooming the lens closer to the ‘Generation of Cool’, Channel O will treat viewers to a groundbreaking variety show called ‘The Gennovators‘ (a combination of Gen Z and Innovators – featuring innovators of culture in their respective spaces. The channel describes ‘Gennovators‘ as a show about young people doing dope-ish, with innovation defining the youth as the technologically inclined generation. 

Another must watch feature is a four-part ‘Maftown Heights’ documentary chronicling a story of how the Motswako music (subgenre of hip-hop originating from South Africa) phenomenon was started in Mafikeng and went on to revolutionise the local musical landscape. The documentary features Motswako kings Khuli Chana, Tuks Senganga, the late HHP and many more.

As for the June 16 festivities in Soweto, a slew on fun activities are on the cards culminating in a grandeur concert at Zone 6 Venue. Tickets are available at Computicket from R100. Gates open at 12pm.
