DJ Fresh serenades revellers


POPULAR South African house music disc jockey DJ Fresh serenaded fans last Saturday night when he performed in Bulawayo.


Fresh performed at Horizon Bar and Restaurant at a show dubbed the “Shorts and Shades party: Summer Take Off”.

Patrons were left asking for more at the well-decorated poolside.

Much to the delight of the patrons, the disc jockey belted out good music ranging from old skool, latest, deep house and also commercial house music.

DJ Fresh was happy about the turnout and the response by fans.

“The show was nice and fans could relate to the music.

“It is nice to be in Zimbabwe. I thank the fans who came through and we promise more to come,” DJ Fresh said.

Before the South African came onto the stage, the decks were warmed by local deejays Keezy, Black Cee, Slimzah Wa Afrika, Bravo and ZiFM Stereo top DJ T-Base.

Mduduzi Mdlongwa of 3D Events, the organisers of the show, thanked everyone who came.

“We are humbled by the turnout and fans enjoyed each moment. A lot is in store for Bulawayo,” Mdlongwa said.

DJ Fresh, born Thato Sikwane in 1972, has delighted house music lovers for over a decade, first with his Fresh House Flava series before the more authoritative Definition of House albums which have brought him world-wide acclaim.

He dropped law studies and pursued radio full-time, joining YFM in 1997.

Fresh was heading up the YFM breakfast team by 2003 and was quickly snapped up by 5FM in 2006 where the Fresh Drive has since become a 5FM institution as well as one of the station’s most popular shows.
