#FreshFromTheGrill: Enzo Resigns as CEO of Slaghuis and hands over to DJ Chikin
After 15 years of devoting his energy, hard work as well as gemstone notions to the Hip Hop culture, Ernest “Enzo” Gololo has resigned as the CEO of Slaghuis. This all officially transpired at the Soweto Uprising event which is about celebrating the young people of the historically well-heeled township and the nation that took place at the Slaghuis venue in Diepkloof Zone 4, Soweto.
The news was not comfortably received by the supporters and fellow legends in the movement. The event was overfilled with a brilliant program which included the screening of a very essential documentary in Hip Hop history titled Joint Elements, an in depth story about friends, architects of Slaghuis, duplicity, culture vultures and everything else that is a condiment of an emotional rollercoaster. The post screening Q&A spread the flame from a sorrowful furnace when Enzo proved to be resolute to his final words when he handed over the Slaghuis content and all rights documents to Gugulethu “DJ Chikin” Vilakazi. He will be the one spear heading any content that will be on Slaghuis TV, from social media to even the website and anything related to the most influential session of all time in the land. There content that you will see is pre-post material to see through content from the vault. Enzo would love to take the time and appreciate everybody that supported Slaghuis since its inception in 2003 to the 15 year anniversary which marked the end of a phenomenal era. The mother of all Hip Hop sessions in Soweto, had a prodigious impact on the SA Hip Hop scene. This was the only session that fully embodied all the elements of the culture: Deejaying, Graffiti, B Boying, Rapping and Knowledge of Self. One can’t also talk Slaghuis without mentioning the Greatest Rapper Of All Time, Linda Pro Mkhize, may his soul rest in poetry which is eternal paradise amongst other great acts such as Pitch Black Afro, 985, Zulu Mobb, DOME, Maggz, Siya Shezi and many more that have branched. The chapter with Enzo and Slaghuis is closed and he wishes the movement with the new captain at the helm of a legendary ship all the best in it's future endeavors.
