You don’t just attend the Hitman CEO show unless you are the chosen one, attested the Kasi rapper and Entrepreneur Mbongiseni Dludlu.

A confounding myriad of young people swamped Manyisa place, Saturday Afternoon, for an extravagant The chosen one show in Diepsloot ext.4 to witness their favourite local hip-hop artists battle it out on one mic, one stage.

The objective of the show was to promote local talents including the young entrepreneurs from around Diepsloot to come and showcase their wares to the local people.

“The concept of the chosen one is that everyone here is the chosen one, we are the chosen one, we all special in our own way and today we are celebrating that,” said Dludlu.

The zero hour saw young businesses selling and promoting their merchandise to the community before the show could really take place. This served as a good opportunity for all young entrepreneurs to come and market their creatives.

“During the day it was more of a market, where people showcase their products, I am opening a channel for young entrepreneurs in Diepsloot to come and promote their staff,” concluded Dludlu.

Sibusiso Perfect from Ink Drop was more happy with the opportunity the show has given him as it helped him to expose his products to the neighborhood.

"We are trying to get exposure and expose as well our products and who we are to our neighbourhood and show them who we really are."

He also said more should be done to support the local talents, but was however, satisfied with the initiative Mbongiseni Dludlu has made.

“There’s more that needs to be done but at least we took the initiative to try and do something about it,” Perfect said.

Ras Brigado was very ecstatic with the chance Hitman had given him to come and showcase his creatives to the attendees Saturdays.

"Hit man keep it up, whatever you are doing just keep it up man and thanks," he said.

One of the most revered and demented rapper from DiepSociety Honest Diebolic recently renown as The D, who has recently done a joint with Nasty C said was very happy to have been part of the show although his performance came a little bit late.

“Although I was the last performer, it was a good event overall,” said the No warning rapper,and poet The D.

If there's something the community of Diepsloot should pride themselves with is Kasi hip hop, this medium is becoming in dribs and drabs a new voice the youth in the community needs to tell their stories.

Luthando who was amongst the chosen ones saw the event as a chance for residents to come and support the talents and brands they have.

"this is a chance for diepsloot residents to come and see the talent and support the brands that we have here," she said.
