The first stop to Mzansi is in the bustling city of Johannesburg, where Oratilwe (DJ Arch Jnr) participants through his love of music and how he makes moves being a DJ.

The jet will also make a stop in the vibrant city of Lagos in Nigeria, where Tomiwa will show how he plans to protect the planet and encourage his peers to do the same.

The trip will berth in Lusaka, Zambia, which is home to Agatha who is obsessive about Kyokushin Karate, a new craze in the country – with good reason!
