Music makers: Two Maritzburg deejays blaze up the decks in Durban’s Dela Sol Competition

2011-05-04 00:00

CLUBBERS in Pietermaritzburg will keep their fingers crossed tonight as their favourite deejays — Stutter and Sgoody — compete in the final round of the provincial Dela Sol deejaying contest to be held in Durban.

Although a lot of their local fans know them as DJ Sgoody and Stutter, their real names are Goodman Zondi (24) and Sinjen Cotcholos (25).

The two — who normally share the decks together — will be competing against each other and several other deejays to see who will emerge as Durban’s number one.

Sgoody said he is looking forward to the finals, but finds it challenging as they have to play “deep” house music to accommodate the rules of the competition.

“Deep house is not my style, but this does not dampen my spirits because I have faith in my deejaying capabilities.

I am ready to take Durban by storm,” Sgoody said.

He said that he is confident that one of them will bring the prize back home.

Stutter said his most serious competitor is Sgoody so he just needs enough tricks up his sleeves to beat him.

“While looking forward to the finals, the challenge is that we do not know how much music we need to prepare because we do not know how much time will be allocated for us to perform,” said Stutter.

He said that should not be a problem since he has played for more than five hours and he is ready.

They are both calling for their fans to support them in the hope that at least one of them makes it into the final for the sake of the City of Choice.

The judges will be Metro FM deejays Kristos and Leko.

The winner will get a chance to record an album.
