At the tender age of three, DJ Arch Jnr (real name, Oratile Hlongwane) can probably claim more musical success than most people ten times older than him. The young DJ first made headlines when he won the championship on South Africa’s Got Talent back in November as well as the tidy sum of $35,000 to go along with it.
Fast forward a few months and now he’s set to take the stage alongside Black Coffee, DJ Christos, and more with a slot at Back To The Old Skool concert in Johannesburg which looks to celebrate some of South Africa’s most acclaimed house DJs. In addition to some of South Africa’s finest, the show, which takes place February 27th, also features some of the genre’s true patriarchs including Todd Terry, Roger Sanchez, David Morales, and more with DJ Arch Jnr’s inclusion giving it a ceremonial “passing the torch” touch between generations.
