SOUTH African Gqom duo Distruction Boyz are set to make their debut appearance at Club Connect on Saturday.
The duo Que and Goldmax from Durban who are rocking airwaves with their track Shut up and groove, are one of the Qgom pioneers in South Africa.
They are set to leave an indelible mark in the City of Kings, where judging by air play they are getting at pubs and public transport, have a huge following.
Gqom which is a subgenre of house music is proving to be popular as local producers are also surfing on the new wave and dropping competitive tracks.
Proprietor of Club Connect, Biggie Chinoperekwei said everything has been set for the show.
“Everything has been arranged. As for now we are waiting for the duo to come for the show. Local DJs T Bass and whiz Kid are also going to be on the decks,” said Chinoperekwei.
Chinoperekwei said that, Distruction Boyz are at the peak of their musical careers, therefore he was certain they were up for the task and are definitely going to impress their fans.
“The boys are huge in South Africa. I believe they’re going to make a lasting impression and give their fans value for their money. Even Heavy K and Prince Kaybee said the boys are taking the house scene by storm. As a result their fans must expect to get the best from the duo,” he said.
With the local house scene mushrooming with Gqom music producers, Chinoperekwei encouraged local artists who wanted to meet the duo to make arrangements during the week at Club Connect.
“We are going to create a platform for those who’re willing to meet the duo. All aspiring Qgom artistes who want to talk with the duo should make arrangements at Club Connect as the week progresses so that we make a plan for the itinerary,” he said.
