The Vodacom Durban July is not only Durban's most prestigious event of the year but one of the biggest horseracing events in Africa.

Durban July is primarily a horseracing event but it strongly incorporates fashion and music elements.

In attendance at this year's event from Namibia was the DJ duo The Rhythm made up of DJ Kido and DJ Sandile.

The duo shared that their aim is to create a gateway for Namibian DJs to cross the border and reach out to South Africa and explore that market as well.

“We want to pave a way for all Namibian DJs to have a chance to be invited to play at the Durban July - not just established DJs,” said DJ Kido.

DJ Sandile added as a duo that was part of this big event they want to inform Namibians that there are people who see potential in Namibian art and entertainment scene. The Rhythm urges Namibian artists to be consistent as they believe that is what will attract more opportunities for them to showcase their talent at events of this magnitude.

“We were given a chance last year to showcase our talent and we returned this year. We kept our consistency regardless of the negative comments we received.

“We want to thank everyone who was and still is part of the dream,” said DJ Sandile.

The two DJs got the chance to share the deck alongside Vinny Da Vinci, Mlindo the vocalist, DJ Loyd, Intro Fam and many more.
