After their #OnlineQuarantineParty, which was streamed by thousands of fans, DJs Shimza and PH took their vibe to Channel O. Now they’re hosting the #LockdownHouseParty every Friday and Saturday night from 6pm to midnight, and the whole of Mzansi is invited! 

Last week, we got to see some of SA’s most loved DJs, including Zinhle and Maphorisa, bringing the heat on the #LockdownHouseParty, in association with Hunters Cider.

PH says: “Shimza hit me up and hit the rest of us up. Before he even finished the sentence I was like ‘Yo, where and when?’ I think most of us on that line-up are very passionate about what we do… This was a way to reach out to our supporters and give them what they support us for.”
