On 26th July, everyone’s favourite Jozi club, Taboo, lit up like never before as Rémy Martin and Riky Rick introduced VIP guests to their Johannesburg Top Five. After a rigorous week in studio, these talented beatmakers got the chance to play their beats live to an audience of music heavyweights, media and celebrities alike.
While Rémy Martin cocktails flowed, each beat maker made their way on stage and gave it all they had. One by one, they were critiqued by esteemed judges Riky Rick and Master A Flat, and cheered on by an energetic crowd. Nerves and adrenaline were on a high!
The votes were close and the standard of beats exceptional – but only one beatmaker could walk away with the top spot.
After much deliberation and a surprise performance by the one and only Riky Rick (which sent the crowd into a frenzy), the Rémy Martin team and judges announced Profound as the Johannesburg regional winner.
A crowd favourite and confident performer, Profound had winner written all over him and will prove to be a very tough contender at the Grand Finale in September.
