Many people do not know that DJ Mizz is the originator of hit song Kuze Kose by DJ Merlon featuring Modli Ngcobo.

Cape Town based DJ Sanele Wili, also known as DJ Mizz, broke into the industry with his single Count your Blessings where he worked with producer Raps Vhafuwi.

“I met Raps while he was staying in Cape Town, we clicked and made musical chemistry,” says DJ Mizz.

“I first produced the song Kuze Kuse in 2011 and DJ Merlon asked for it, he then added vocals and modernised it here and there and it became a hit,” DJ Mizz says.

At age 25 ,and coming from a poor background, DJ Mizz says he is honoured to have worked with big South African names - the likes of DJ Black Coffee, singer Mpumi and producer Shota, just to name a few.

Mizz says although he is new in the industry he already has overcome many challenges. “I’ve had some disagreement with people who I will not mention, over song rights and ownership. Many people have tried their luck with me, but I am learning the business side of the music in order to avoid those situations again,” he said.

Mizz acknowledge that the entertainment industry is not easy but he is practicing patience and will continue to work hard. “I released my debut album Never Stop Dreaming in August this year and I will never stop working hard,” Mizz says.
