Uthoht Publishing Enterprises is a Brand Activation and Music rights Management Company established in 2002.

We have been involved in Entertainment and Media since 2003 including Events, Recordings and Music Publishing. We began our expansion into brand activation in 2007. We are now experiencing natural growth which allows us to offer more services within the Entertainment, Media and Marketing industries.

Uthoht Production Enterprises’ target markets are all companies needing their brands to be activated in their respective markets. Whether it is introducing the brands to the market, development of existing brands, diversification or expansion, we have various channels available to engage the markets in a manner which they will remember for a very long time.

Music Rights Management, particularly Music Publishing, is at the core of the business as we believe that music drives everything and music creation begins with the Composer. Our composers are the creators of many hits and production music. They also have the ability and resources to create new music for any client.

The company recruits, retains and develops superior talent in the industry. We understand their importance and role in the company as the main source of income. We, therefore, ensure that we deliver on what is required of us. We negotiate the best rates, collect and pay our talent promptly!



Vongani Rikhotso

General Manager & CEO

Diepkloof native Vongani Rikhotso began his romance with the entertainment business while in his first year at Wits University. He began by offering street marketing services to major record labels such as Sony, Gallo and Universal Records while hosting small hip-hop events.

Using the stage name Spex, Vongani later independently recorded what is arguably South Africa’s first solo hip-hop release, which was licensed to Eargasm/Tic tic Bang in 1998. Wanting to take things further, he registered Uthoht Production Enterprises as a business in 2002, independently recorded and distributed his second album while signing Zulu Mobb and TeePee to the label.

Music Publishing seemed like a natural extension of the business and soon took over as the main focus. His interest in music rights and understanding of the music industry has helped propel Uthoht significantly. He also always had an interest in the life of brands so when the opportunity to activate a brand for the company Distell presented itself in 2008 he accepted it with open arms. Brand activation is now a major part of the business and now includes Events, Live Acts and Model management.

Vongani is currently managing director of Uthoht Production Enterprises and sits on the board of MPASA (Music Publisher’s association of South Africa).
