According to Gauteng Lifestyle Magazine, the competition sees select artists from four popular music genres - gqom, amapiano, hip-hop and maskandi - lock horns in all-star teams for bragging rights and a cash prize.

Captained by Big Zulu, Cassper's goal contributed to a 3-2 Hip-Hop FC victory over Gqom FC (led by DJ Tira) in the first semifinal. Maskandi FC, with Khuzani at the helm, defeated the Kabza de Small-led Amapiano FC on penalties after a 1-1 draw. The losing semifinalists took home R25 000 each for their efforts.
