A local Dj/music producer is hoping that his big switch from HipHop to House will be a big win.

Ntando Mqikela, 22, known as Dj Ntiro from Old Crossroads is hoping his latest single, titled Heartbreak, will win over house music lovers.

The young jock has just released his latest single featuring Pretoria based singer Majozi.

“Ever since I began my music career in 2010 as a DJ, I was always a Hiphop fanatic even when I started producing in 2014.

I have worked with local rappers such as Sibah Anne, J Makopo, Supreme Swank and Index from Ex-Hoza.

This time I decided to do a house song with the hope of breaking into the dance and gqom scene,” he said.

He said that his song is so special as it drew from personal experience.

“It is a story about a lad who has had a hard time after a friend passed away, and also the loss of a loved one.

I was really looking for a vocalist that was going to portray this message through G-Town Production and J0-Solid who mastered the album I found Majozi and knew he was the guy,” said Mqikela.

He is hoping to release his first EP later in the year but he is already working towards producing more music.

Mqikela said that he started producing when he entered for the One and Two’s DJ Competition show on SABC.

“I went to study music production at SAE Sound College but strange enough, after I had acquired the skill, I never went back to enter the competition. I just continueD making music,” he said.

He said that he hopes that other young DJ and producers can take time out to go study within their field.

Heart Broken is available for free download online with the link available on his Facebook profile.
