CASABLANCA Lifestyle owner Sakhile Xulu, popularly known as DJ Staxx, was inspired to use his education and training to help the youth, sharing his love of music with them in an effort to save them from social ills. By teaching music at his establishment in Molweni, he aims to keep children on the right path and out of jail.

According to DJ Staxx, it takes a village to raise a child and that’s why he opened his arms to those who want to learn more about music.

“The entertainment industry has a lot to offer but music is one thing that brings a whole nation together. That’s why I saw the opportunity of giving these children the chance to learn and explore their own talents.”

He said he started the classes in order to get the children off the streets during the weekend because he knows that, if they are not kept occupied with something productive, they stand a risk of getting involved with the “wrong crowd”.

“I grew up in a township and life is very hard. You can easily end up getting involved with the wrong people and I don’t want the children of this community to end up doing that because they have many good opportunities that we didn’t have back then,” said DJ Staxx.

He said that he welcomes children to his place on weekends where he teaches them how to spin the decks. He even gives them “homework” so that when they come back the following weekend they are able to share what they have learned.

With school holidays approaching DJ Staxx is extending his classes to offer them during the week as well.

“Those who want their children to attend these free classes are most welcome,” he said.

His message to the community is, “Crime does not pay”.

“We have to instil good morals in our children while they are still young.”

For more information on the lessons, or to speak to DJ Staxx, contact him on 072 390 7278.

“With the needs being so great, we encourage corporate companies to donate to 31 Club as part of their social responsibility.
