DJ Zinhle: SA Female DJ’s Are Not Just About Being Sexy

So sad that you chose to reduce the growth of the female DJ industry to this. I definitely don’t agree with you. I’m loving how the girls are making it their own and dominating. Surely there’s something to celebrate here," Zinhle tweeted.

DJ Zinhle has expressed her distaste in a tweep’s claim that SA female DJs are merely about being sexy and having great dance moves. The tweep claim that is all that is required to be a DJ and no one cares about the mixing.

“Being a female DJ these days only requires looks and some sexy dance moves. Nobody cares about your mixing,” claimed the tweep.

Responding to the troll, Zinhle slammed the claim, saying she was impressed with the growth of female DJs and how they are taking up space in a male-dominated industry.

“So sad that you chose to reduce the growth of the female DJ industry to this. I don’t agree with you. I’m loving how the girls are making it their own and dominating. Surely there’s something to celebrate here,” Zinhle tweeted.

New female DJs etching their names on the wall of fame include DJ Lamiez Holworthy,  DBN Gogo, actress-cum-DJ Thuli Phongolo and newcomer Uncle Waffles, who went viral last weekend and caught a follow from US rapper Drake.

She was dubbed Africa’s number one DJ after being listed as one of SA’s and Africa’s most influential and powerful people.

The Indlovu hitmaker launched the first females only DJ academy in 2009 called FUSE. It has since shut down due to logistical issues.

“Due to a lot of back and forth, we realised a decision wasn’t going to be final and because there was no venue, we decided to no longer take in students,” Zinhle said

While Zinhle has since ventured into other business interests, she remains an advocate for women in the music industry many aspiring artists admire.
