A local jock is proving that you can turn your hobby into a serious career in the local entertainment industry despite setbacks.

Thandolwethu “Huge T” Mzingeli is a 22-year old DJ from Crossroads who has used his years in night life scene to establish a flourishing business.

Apart from being booked as jock every weekend the young man runs his own sound hiring business where he services events to local organisers.

Mzingeli started DJying at the tender age of 14 years old as a hobby until he learnt the ropes of the industry.

“There are a lot of DJs and there are more people that want to get in and this makes it quote difficult to make a living as there is plenty of competition. However, if you have the talent, know what people want when you DJ just like any good businessperson make the correct connections you will receive work,” he said. Huge T remains one of the busiest DJs in the City, he hopes to be even busier with the plans for the year.

“Last year was more about stabilizing the business side of my career acquiring clients but im looking forward to focusing on production in this year. I will be dropping a new album before at the end of the year with the purpose of making myself more of a house hold name,” he said. He said that he was looking forward to the despite losing his older brother late last year he is quite positive of the future.

Many artists are always poised with the question of having to move to Johhanesburg in a bid to further their careers but not this DJ.

“Its not a move that m looking into making just yet as I believe that I still have a lot to achieve local o that by the time I decide to move I’m a well known brand in my home town. The move does make sense but be for its justy not the right time,” he said.
