Dj Zinhle Jiyane and Nomndeni Mdakhi's  Fuse Music Academy is gearing for the launch of  Sassy House Experience , a mentorship programme for aspiring female Dj’s,  which has been quite appropriately abbreviated to S.H.E

“The acronym took its own life to best define the fairer sex in the male dominated industry.”

S.H.E  aims to introduce newly qualified female deejays into the industry. Similar to a mentorship programme, upcoming Dj’s will get to shadow Dj Zinhle and receive the exposure necessary to make it in the cut throat music industry.

"We have always called Fuse Academy 'the Pink Revolution' and S.H.E is the perfect start to launch uprising stars," says Nomndeni Mdakhi, business partner at Fuse Academy.

In its first leg, S.H.E will be introducing Mis Pru, a Vaal born female deejay that trained with Fuse Academy in the first year of the school's launch three years back, and has stayed on with the institution as a lecturer to other young aspiring female candidates.

"Mis Pru has shown great commitment and perseverance on her journey to becoming a professional DJ, hence, she was the perfect candidate to launch the property with…she has the necessary combination of guts, determination and oomph to make it in this cut throat industry," concludes Nomndeni.

When asked about how has the reaction of their male counterparts, Nomndeni said they have been very supportive and truly believe now more than ever that females have a role to play in building the entertainment industry.

Mis Pru will be pairing with DJ Zinhle, playing as a duo at events around the country but starting with Joburg this February.
