LIGWALAGWALA FM UNEARTHS NEW DJ TALENT

A befitting end to the illustrious search for Mpumalanga’s Finest Dj was witnessed at Carlito’s in Ermelo. The competition that discovered DJ Afro and Sir Tellus who are now presenters of the Saturday midnight Show on Ligwalagwala FM sought to unearth another gem.

 More than 100 talented Dj’s from all around the province of Mpumalanga sent in their demos with the hope of becoming the next to be crowned MP’s Finest DJ. Only one could win it and it was none other than Njabulo Magagula, affectionately known as DJ Quentin, from Nkomazi.

 The young man submitted his 10-minute-long mix which was given the nod by judges and saw him sailing into the second round where he auditioned in front of judges at the station against 13 other contestants who had made the shortlist. His impressive skill was evident when he proceeded to the final round of eliminations where he played a 10-minute set live on air on the afternoon drive show.

Three finalists chosen by the listeners on air, DJ West, DJ Hotjuice and DJ Quentin went head to head in a packed club Carlitos. They all gave their best but there could only be one winner. DJ Quentin impressed both the judges and the crowd with his ‘Black Coffee’ style of playing. Black Coffee also happens to be his role model and inspiration.

 To wrap the evening up in style on the decks was DJ Afro, Shabbisto, The Prince, Dj Cleo and Dr Malinga. The capacity filled club celebrated with DJ Quentin on his win where he grabbed himself Pioneers CD350’s with a Pioneer Mixer, Sennheizer earphones and a carry care for all DJ equipment that costs R 27 000.

 “This is proof that we are committed to empowering our listeners. Mpumalanga is a province filled with talent and we aim at finding it and showcasing it to the world.” said Rio Mabunda, Ligwalagwala FM Station Manager.
