The house music sensation surprised hundreds of kids at the Sunday Times Generation Next Awards last week.

The awards are an annual survey which measures the “coolness” of brands and celebrities in Mzansi.

The survey is run through the HDI Youth Marketeers and each year, thousands of kids between the ages of eight and 23, choose the coolest brands of them all.

But that wasn’t the end of the surprises.
Local TV and radio star Bonang Matheba made a surprise appearance to accept the Coolest Local Music Stars award on behalf of her boyfriend, AKA.

In addition to the awards, the Generation Next team held a full day of activities which included a conference featuring social media giants such as Siya Beyile, Sibu Mpanza, and Arye Kellman.

Headline sponsors for the event, Kotex, were thrilled to once again be voted the second coolest feminine hygiene product in Mzansi.

“"We are incredibly proud to be part of this amazing event, from the conference to the awards, it was great to gather insights from the vibrant youth of our country."

"We are passionate about our youth and will continue to communicate with relevant content that resonates with them. It is a great honour to have been voted the second coolest brand and we appreciate the amazing support Kotex® is getting," said the Senior Brand Manager of Kotex SA, Shirley Nhlengethwa. - Daily Sun
