Nkanyezi Kubekha also known as DJ Nkanyezi, Budweiser “King of Decks” winner, took to the ULTRA SA Main Stage this weekend and truly seized the moment. With the world’s top DJs such as Afrojack, DJ Snake, Steve Aoki and Mzansi’s own Black Coffee, DJ Nkanyezi was able to hold his own with an electrifying set.

Emerging from Durban, Nkanyezi conquered the Ultra Main Stage with a mix of Afro-house, Gqom, Amapiano and deep house beats, in front of a cheering crowd of festival goers.

“Everything in my life has led to this moment. To be here on this big stage, playing with my heroes and legends, is more than a dream come true. I have to thank Budweiser for the best moment of my life and to be a king. To look over a sea of smiling people and be able to play my favourite tracks was magical,” said a jubilant Nkanyezi to Budweiser reps.

Marketing manager for Budweiser, Estee Burger said, “We couldn’t be more proud of Nkanyezi. From winning the very first Budweiser “King of Decks” to taking his place on the main stage of Africa’s biggest Electronic Music festival stage, and then blowing everyone away. His success is a message to all Kings of Culture out there, to take their shot at success. Nkaynezi’s journey with Budweiser does not end here. He will also be participating in many other opportunities designed and for him. We know that he is completely energized to take on this next level of his career as a professional DJ.”

And after talking to Nkanyezi before his set, we're so happy to know that not only did the #KingofDecks enjoyed his experience but that he killed it.

For the first time, sounds from the African underground such as Amapiano & Gqom were experienced at an ULTRA Festival, giving the international electronic music  goers, a unique Mzansi experience and flavour.

Congratulations to the King. We can't wait to see what's next for the DJ.
