The debut of a new reality television show on Channel O will spotlight a visit to South Africa by global dance sensation Audio Push.
Split Second will start on Thursday 2 June at 6:30pm on Channel O and promises to provide a fascinating, rare glimpse into what it’s like for an act to visit and perform in a foreign country – in this case, Audio Push’s recent visit to South Africa.
Audio Push hit the top of the charts with the song, “Teach Me How To Jerk’ and since then emcees Oktane and Price Tag (who hail from the Inland Empire section of Southern California) have become leaders of the fast rising “jerk” movement.
Channel O viewers got their first glimpse of the dynamic duo behind the music on season 5 of O Access, when Dineo hung out with them in the US.
In the first episode of Split Second the cameras follow Audio Push as they arrive in Johannesburg from the USA to begin their tour of South Africa. They get settled in at their hotel and are thrown into the deep end on their first day in South Africa, with radio interviews and a trip to the studio for a TV shoot. Oktane and Price Tag get hyped up about their first performance in South Africa and draw comparisons between their lifestyle and the South African lifestyle they’re exposed to.
Price Tag and Oktane perform at Walter Sisulu Hall in episode 2, followed by a lavish after party at the very stylish Taboo nightclub in Sandton. The duo unwinds the next day at the Lion Park where they get a taste of African nature and wildlife. In episode 3 things switch up when there is a surprise change in plans. The guys from Audio Push decide to do a last-minute tour of Soweto to get in touch with their roots and further explore South African culture and heritage.
The result is a fascinating, emotional and riveting slice of reality television that blends the reactions of newcomers to Africa with their interaction with local media, musicians, fans and plenty of live performances as well.
Upcoming episodes of the Split Second reality show promises to feature more big name visitors to South African shores.
