The video was accompanied by some music and of course it has to be from his catalogue and his latest addition “Summer Love” is the perfect fit.

“Don Billiato just landed in Cape Town. Had my baby waiting for me at the airport. Let’s enjoy the summer and make movies. Happy New year! #BilliatoATasteOfWealth,” he said in his caption.

Konka is known to host some of Mzansi's hottest performers and also known for tables filled with expensive bottles of champagne and other alcohol.

The event was hosted by Pearl Thusi and Mihlali Ndamase, with one of the hottest amapiano duos on the decks, Scorpion Kings.
