DJ Mdix from Gamalakhe is working on an album to be released soon.

Lungisani Khuzwayo is one of three raised by a single mother.

He said his love of music started in primary school when played music at private events.

“I have always been passionate about music, looking up to Professor, Black Coffee and others, before being introduced to the club scene,” said Khuzwayo.

His hit song Umvulo translates from Xhosa meaning “Monday”, speaks of the difficulties of waking up on a Monday morning after a hectic weekend of partying.

Khuzwayo met Zanda Zakuza, the vocalist in the song, and worked with her as he already had the beat and concept of it.

The song is making waves nationally and opening opportunities for him.

Umvulo was one of the biggest songs on the charts last year.

His second single Mpintsh Yami is also making waves and is a collaboration with Ezingolweni’s Mkhonzeni Langa known as “Professor”.

“My collaboration with Professor is amazing, He told me he was interested in my style of music and would like to work with me.

“The song is produced by Magnetic Deejays in Port Elizabeth, who I am doing a lot of work with.

“We will be releasing another single soon and it will be part of my upcoming album.”

Magnetic Deejays are the first artists which DJ Mdix will be releasing under his own record label.

“I also have my own caps with the names of my two songs, Mpintsh Yam and Umvulo, written on.

“My goal is to develop my brand and hopefully a record label, where I will develop talent in the industry, especially local artists.”

Khuzwayo is a father and says the industry is very demanding, making it difficult for him to “play the father role”, but he makes sure his spare moments are spent with his son.

He said his highlights are sharing a stage with late music legend Robbie Malinga, Sjava and Lira and Amanda Black at big events such as Ugu Jazz Festival.

“The Fact Durban Rocks party was also a highlight, I got exposure and performed alongside Black Coffee, Casper Nyovest, Aka and Nasty C.”

He said he would like to thank Ray Nkonyeni Municipality for believing in his talent and he hopes to work with them, discovering raw talent in the industry.

“I will be shooting my second video with Professor for my song Mpintsh Yam this month.

“Shootings will be done on the South Coast to promote the beautiful scenery of the area as a holiday destination, and the video will be played nationwide.” he said.
