Cape Town -  Youth, music and entertainment powerhouses MTV (DStv channel 130) and MTV Base (DStv channel 322) are gearing up to thrill urban music lovers by hooking up with Cadbury 5Star, the latest chocolate bar to launch in South Africa. 

The collaboration will blow up in a new season of MTV and MTV Base’s explosive music concept, MTV DJ Battle allowing young South Africans to experience a total sensory overload. 

Here’s more about the event: 

MTV DJ Battle is a musical showcase and TV show that celebrates the art of DJ-ing by testing the skills of the nation’s hottest DJs. For each ‘battle’ there will be two teams of 3 DJs, representing MTV and MTV Base respectively, with MTV captained by DJ Vigilante and Heavy K at the helm of the MTV Base crew. Each team will be lined up against each other in a series of deck-to-deck battles as they strive to out-mix, out-play and out-party each other. Wild card challenges are also thrown into the mix and the audience decides who wins. 

Wololo star Babes Wodumo will also be performing at the event.

In addition, Cadbury 5Star is giving one lucky music fan and 4 friends the chance to win the ultimate DJ Experience. All you have to do is visit the 5star Cadbury site to earn five stars and stand a chance to win an exclusive DJ Master Class with one of the DJ Battle captains, plus a set of 5 tickets to the finale of the MTV DJ Battle. The competition starts on Monday 8 August and ends at midnight on 21 August.
