DJ Zinhle


Zinhle Jiyane, aka DJ Zinhle, stepped onto the South African DJ scene at a time when it was still very much of a man’s world. But this talented lady quickly managed to turn some heads with her crazy skills on the turntables. She even grabbed the attention of some of Mzansi’s most respected DJs, such as DJ Oskido, and has today become one of the best female house DJs in SA.

Zinhle never planned on becoming a DJ. In fact, she only got into it because of chance and circumstance. “My brother Zak owned a company that hired out sound equipment, and he had so much love for music that he would always de-stress through mixing vinyls at home. One day he showed me how mixing works,” says the young lady from Dannhauser in Natal. Her first proper gig happened when she was helping her brother set up for an event. The DJ was late, so Zinhle stepped in. She has since gone from strength to strength, and has recently launched her own DJ school, named FUSE Academy, as well as her clothing range. She is also a common feature on South African radio and TV.
