In a landmark legal settlement, luxury entertainment establishment Ayepyep Lifestyle Cape Town, has returned to its rightful owners, the family of the late DJ Sumbody (Oupa John Sefoka). This victorious moment follows the sale of the DJ’s former business partner, Kagiso Setsetse’s stake in the business, marking a significant step towards restoring the establishment to its former glory.
In recent months, the establishment has been at the centre of a highly publicised dispute, with Setsetse. The Sefoka family has now secured a 50% ownership stake in Ayepyep Lifestyle Cape Town, a testament to their unwavering commitment to preserving DJ Sumbody’s legacy.
After a short closure, Ayepyep Lifestyle Cape Town is set to reopen its doors on Friday 22 September, featuring weekend performances by Vetkoek vs Mahoota, Ms Cosmo, Kyeezi, Murumba Pitch and many more.
“Preserving my brother’s legacy has been at the heart of our relentless pursuit of justice. Ayepyep isn’t just a venue; it’s a living tribute to his passion, creativity, and dedication to the vibrant culture of Cape Town’s social scene. As Ayepyep Lifestyle Cape Town returns to our family after a lengthy battle, we’re inviting patrons to join us in honouring and celebrating my brother’s vision and legacy” said Koketso Sefoka, the Sefoka family’s spokesperson.
As one of the most sought-after destinations for sun-lovers and revellers from around the globe, Cape Town’s electric summer party scene will be welcoming the popular Ayepyep Lifestyle Cape Town back into the fold. Patrons should expect vibrant and luxurious sun-kissed sensory experiences, including an elite musical line-up, gorgeous gourmet culinary selections, exceptional service, and a vivacious vibe for the discerning city reveller.
The Sefoka family extends their gratitude to all the patrons of the establishment and supporters who stood by the family during these challenging times.
As their quest for justice continues, Ayepyep Lifestyle Menlyn and The Secret Door stand as the next chapters in their mission to reclaim what forms part of preserving the positive legacy of the late DJ Sumbody.
