J Qness is on fire – with two global hits to his name and his latest tune playing across Mzansi, he’s also just signed a lucrative deal to endorse Beats by Dre headphones in South Africa.

His international hit, Uzongilinda, spent weeks on the world house charts, especially after it was remixed by UPZ, aka Avi elman. Fugama Unamathe was also right up there and his latest number, Time, is steaming up clubs even as you read this.His tracks are grabbing so much attention that he’s now been made a brand ambassador for hip-hop heavyweight Dr Dre’s headphones, the first south African muso to land such a deal. He follows in the footsteps of other superstars who’ve had their own headphone ranges, such as P Diddy, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber. not bad for a man who was once a security guard!
