We at Briefly News have kept a close eye on the KONKA nightclub in Soweto after noticing its widespread popularity among the rich and famous. It has transformed the image of the township from a place of poverty to one where the elite go to let their hair down.

However, in our latest Facebook post about KONKA, we've realised that many people across Mzansi don't believe the hype and many feel it is reserved for a select group of people who don't live in the township, therefore, it is not a correct representation of Soweto or any other township for that matter.

We captioned the post:

"KONKA is a nightclub situated deep in the heart of Soweto, it's a millionaire's playground. Townships are no longer the symbol of poverty."

"This is a symbol of stupidity and bankruptcy."

Saffas joke that Elon Musk qualifies to drink at KONKA with R4.25 trillion nett worth

In other news, Briefly News reported that our readers gathered online to give subtle and cheeky suggestions as to how Pretoria's own Elon Musk could spend his cash. Neither the skies nor the roads are safe from this business powerhouse.

Musk shook the world with his influence on the electric car and his interest in space travel. Perhaps Musk's success comes from his South African roots. Mzansi welcomed him back to the rainbow nation by offering him drinks at KONKA in exchange for him taking the reins at the embattled power utility Eskom.
