Media Release from Cashtime Life / Cashtime Entertainment: 

Social media and Twitter in particular has the ability to give a voice to rumor mongers; anyone with an agenda can use those 140 characters and a hashtag to start a negative rumor about anyone or anything without giving a second thought to how this will impact the lives of those targeted.
On 21 May someone on twitter started a rumor about K.O having HIV/AIDS after K.O posted a picture of himself at an event, the picture shows K.O to have lost weight. Now those that follow K.O on social media would know that K.O has been working out and even taken cycling as part of his exercise regiment and added to that he is a clean eater and thus the weight loss. The rumor spread quickly on social media and before long K.O’s health status was trending, and some people turned it into a big joke and openly laughed about it. Sad really given that HIV/AIDS is no laughing matter and these actions only worsen the stigma around the disease.

A day later K.O responded by posting this note on twitter and Instagram:
Much like my Maker, I have an incomprehensibly forgiving heart. See I get it! The intrigue around who I really am and the life I lead off camera is heightened each time I do good in the game.
Thing about paddling lies is that falsehood doesn’t eventually become truth – no matter how hard the most spiteful of hearts desires. A lie yesterday is still a lie tomorrow and beyond. Lies just like the truth, do not change.
So I forgive you all for stirring up false info & inaccurate speculations about my health (LOL and calling me names). Oh and thank you for spectating, but I’m sorry there’s no story here. Bless.

This did not quell the rumors, if anything it seemed to have put poured petrol onto the fire. To kill the rumor once and for all; yesterday K.O took an HIV test and posted the results on twitter and Instagram. This I not the first time K.O posts his results, for the last five years K.O has been testing twice a year and he has shared his results in the hopes that he will inspire more young people to get tested.
It is indeed sad that some of our people take HIV/AIDS as a joke when the country has once again the highest infection rate in the world. Let us use our collective voice to fight this ignorance and the stigma around the disease.

DJ Clock & Beatenberg CD Launch @ Zone 6 Soweto

The gentle strumming of the guitar strings calls out gently, teasing you out of your chair and on to your feet. Then comes the dramatic thump and drumming so characteristic of South African house music … and then a smooth, crooning voice joins in on the melody. Pluto, arguably the biggest song in the country right now, is a unifying dance floor filler and It song of the radio waves by newcomers Beatenberg in collaboration with DJ Clock.

 Pluto became the second most downloaded song from the local iTunes store four months after its release and has remained in the top 10 since. And it has received more radio airplay than any other song – local or international – for the past couple of weeks, according to Entertainment Monitoring Africa. It is definitely a coup for DJ Clock and the three members of Cape Town-based Beatenberg: Ross Dorkin, Rob Brink and Matthew Field. But it almost didn’t happen.
Universal Music label executive Neil Sinclair first suggested the collaboration. “He’d read an interview we had done before where we mentioned that we love South African house music,” says Beatenberg drummer Brink. A couple of names came up, but the band settled on DJ Clock as they were already fans of his. The Durban-based DJ and record producer is probably most well-known for his 2008 mega-hit Umahambayedwa.
“We were super excited just to meet him,” says Dorkin, who plays bass. But when that happened, the collaboration almost collapsed.
“I think there was a little bit of miscommunication,” says Field, the band’s guitar-playing vocalist. “We had another song that we had recorded and when we met him and played the song for him, he said it was great but there was nothing for him to add on it.”
The band had flown to Johannesburg for what was supposed to be a recording session, but returned to Cape Town without having recorded with Clock. It would eventually happen at a later stage after the record label intervened. This time, everything would be done from scratch – no pre-recorded songs, just the band and Clock in the studio, where they would create the foot tap-inducing magic of Pluto in the space of 24 hours.
The relatively unknown Beatenberg acknowledge that the collaboration with DJ Clock has been a mutually beneficial career move, especially in terms of making music in a deeply segmented market where crossover hits – let alone artists – are quite rare.
“With Pluto, we got to have a number one song on Metro FM and Clock got to have a number one song on 5FM.”
Similarly, Durban pop band The Arrows were really only known to pop music fans before being thrust into a broader mainstream consciousness through their collaboration with producer DJ Kent on Spin my World Around. Although the band makes it clear that Pluto had long been recorded when Spin My World Around was released, there is no denying that it replicates the magic collaborative formula of the 2013 hit.
Not all are destined for number one spots, but at the very least these types of collaborations expose artists to new audiences. In a recent interview, the seasoned DJ Clock admitted to being forced to “go corporate” to find a new audience.
“It was interesting for me because we kind of feel that we are the ones who have gone ‘corporate’,” says Brink, though Dorkin says it has worked for the group and the producer.

DJ Clock and Beatenberg are launching The 4th Tick album in styleon the 31st May in Soweto Zone 6 ft some of South Africa ‘s best , including the likes of Bantu Soul . Alaska , Tzozo , Cassper Nyovest and more.

I can’t wait to perform at the awards show, especially since it’s live for the first time ever. It’s going to be amazing to feel the energy when I’m on that stage and see some of the best talent that Africa has to offer.”
