This week on My Story: DJ Fresh – Episode 5

By Faeza
11 June 2015

He was bullied as a young boy for being overweight, found a love for music early on, and defied his parents’ wishes for him to attend law school, but DJ Fresh changed the landscape of music in South Africa when he moved here from his native Botswana as a young DJ. In frank discussions with Fresh, his family, as well as some of his closest colleagues such as DJ Euphonik and Oskido, viewers will gain a first-hand account of his struggles in the early days, and see how his career shot to stardom with the launch of popular radio station YFM. Fresh opens up about how he dealt with the backlash of his decision to move from YFM to 5fm, and how, throughout it all, he has managed to remain humble - whether he’s talking to fans on his daily breakfast show, or playing to packed crowds in Ibiza.

My Story, in which some of the country's biggest personalities share the truth behind the headlines and the real details of their life in the limelight, will be aired in two timeslots from next week. On Thursday, 18 June and Thursday, 25 June respectively, episodes 6 and 7 of My Story will be aired on M-Net Channel 101 at 19:30. These episodes will also play out, as usual, on Sunday, 20 June (episode 6) at 18:00 and Sunday 27 June (episode 7) at 18:00. This is due to the fact that an international show is on a two-week hiatus. Viewers will be able to catch episode 8 of My Story on Sunday, 5 July in the same timeslot at 18:00.
