SPINNING the decks at night clubs is what Zabakho Sakeni will be doing in the school holidays until when schools reopen.
The 23-year-old Kokstad deejay is a first-year electrical engineering student at Esayidi Technical, Vocational Education and Training College in Kokstad and a club deejay in his spare time.

“I get lots of invites from Harding, Umzimkhulu, Matetiele, Ixopo and Kokstad and people love my mixed music. I play music that people­ love and enjoy.

“Studying electrical engineering is not a mistake because I want to be an electrician and also play music in my spare time.

“This year was awesome for me because over weekends I play music­ in nightclubs and during the week I focus on my studies.”

“At nightclubs I align music so that the rhythms don’t clash when they are played together,” said Sakeni­.

Next week Sakeni is to spin the decks in Matatiele nightclubs and will also play at weddings throughout the festive season.
