Sjoe! Are we here already? After thousands of entries, a whirlwind of events and fifteen talented finalists from around the country, Rémy Producers South Africa season one has come to an end.
The Grand Finale, which took place at at Kwa Ace in Khayelitsha, Cape Town saw Jozi’s Dennis Masilo, AKA Prxfnd, be crowned as Mzansi’s hottest up-and-coming producer after an exceptional performance and of course, we were to capture some of the moments.
This history in the making result comes just three months after premium cognac brand Rémy Martin announced their partnership with award winning music star Riky Rick to search for South Africa’s next big beat maker.
Prxfnd was up against three other finalists on Friday night, and judges Riky Rick and Master A Flat did not make it easy. The pressure was on from the start as contestants played multiple beats during four rounds, in front of an energetic live audience. Things really heated up in the final round as Prxfnd and runner-up Sptmbr Yngstr battled it out for the winner’s title. But it was Prxfund who pulled out all the stops, bringing a diverse mix of genres to the stage and demonstrating discernible music talent, which saw him secure the number one spot.
As the winner of Rémy Producers South Africa season one, Prxfnd walked away with a brand new Apple MacBook Air and the once in a lifetime and career making chance to collaborate on a track with Riky Rick. Both Prxfnd and Riky will be heading to the studio shortly to record and more details on the track’s commercial release will be released soon.
