Dj Zinhle Career
She stepped onto the South African DJ scene at a time when it was still very much of a man’s world, but this talented lady quickly managed to turn some heads with her crazy skills on the decks. She even grabbed the attention of some of Mzansi’s most respected DJs, such as DJ Oskido, and has today become one of the best female house DJs in SA.
DJ Zinhle never planned on becoming a DJ. In fact, she only got into it because of chance and circumstance. Her brother Zak owned a company that hired out sound equipment, and he had so much love for music that he would always de-stress through mixing vinyls at home. One day he showed her how mixing works.
Her first proper gig happened when she was helping her brother set up for an event. The DJ was late, so Zinhle stepped in and the rest, as they say, is history. Well, not quite… She did, after all, have to break some ground by entering an industry dominated by men.
Zinhle always knew she wanted to work in entertainment and initially trained to be a TV presenter. It seems she was destined to appear on our screens, despite career change, as she got her first big break with the dance show Jika Majika. Jika Majika is a popular SABC1 youth show that showcases the latest dance moves. Zinhle was a resident DJ for the show from 2006 to 2009, this pushed Zinhle into the spotlight and made her a household name.
