One of South African’s most adored DJ, is Dj Zinhle. DJ Zinhle, born Ntombezinhle Jiyane, is the South African Disc Jockey, actress and television personality. She is perhaps best known for her work on SABC 1’s dance show Jika Majika as well as her hit song “My Name Is” featuring Busiswa.
Zinhle Jiyane got her first taste of the turn tables through her brother Zak who owned the sound equipment which he rented out to event organizers. She got her first job as a DJ when she accompanied her brother Zak to an event at which the scheduled DJ failed to show up on time, Zinhle had to step up and fill in.
In 2004 DJ Zinhle turned her djing into a career, at the time using vinyl record to do her mixes – a favorite still among some disc jockeys.
Since bursting into the South African music scene in 2004, DJ Zinhle has played loads of gigs; at the Miami Music Conference, the Southern African Music Conference, the Durban July, the South African Fashion Week, the Mbombela Stadium Launch and the MTV Birthday Party among other events, you name it.
