Johannesburg - As the matric class of 2018 received their final results, DJ Euphonik took time out to congratulate Sakhile Hlatswhayo, aka Killer Kau, on completing his schooling.

“@killerkau passed matric!!! Let the games begin . . . AGAIN!!” the music producer posted.

Killer Kau became an instant sensation when a video of him singing over Distruction Boyz's instrumental Shut Up and Groove went viral in 2017.

He caught Euphonik's attention, which led to them collaborating on the hit song Tholukuthi Hey. The track went on to play on radio stations and clubs nationally, and the rest is history.

Speaking to DRUM, Killer Kau says his matric year had been challenging but that he enjoyed himself and made a lot of friends. 

“I was confident that I was going to pass, but the most challenging part was the pressure from social media.  I knew I needed to do well so my manager limited the number of events we did. We haven’t attended an event since September because I needed to focus.”

The hitmaker says Euphonik and Bekzin Terris had been very supportive of his studies, adding that fans should expect some new music now that he has completed school. 

“I’ll be making music with Euphonik and Bekzin Terris. They wanted me to focus on school and pass. I did that, now they owe me 365 days of studio time,” he jokes.

Although he hasn’t yet decided whether he wants to further his education, Killer Kau says he’ll be focusing on art, music and fashion.

Congratulations, Killer Kau!
