Music has always been DJ Beef’s passion since childhood. For him, being a dj started at The Duck and Bull Pub at Knockando Men’s residence in Parktown (JHB) where he resided whilst a student at UNISA and Boston City Campus-Orange Groove (1997-1999). He started by mixing cassette tapes and cds. Occasional visits to House Afrika Records and seeing djs mixing made him more determined to be a professional dj. With the mentorship and assistance of one of Limpopo’s best Djs (Dj Problem Child now known as El Problemo), Dj Beef’s skills were polished to turn him into a professional.
His first professional booking was in April 2000 at Waterland-Polokwane by the late Mr Ryt (William Mogale) of Kleva Entertainment. It was not a surprise that he joined them in 2001 as their dj which opened doors for the then 22 year old young man from Seshego, a township in Polokwane (Limpopo).With his style and skills on the decks he impressed a lot of people which also saw him become a resident dj at the then Carolux nite Club (Plk) and ultimately a brand in Limpopo.
In 2003, he formed his own company called Beef Productions which was later registered as Beef Entertainment (pty) ltd.
This company was formed to be an events managing, sound and stage hire, function equipment hire, video, screens and artists/djs management Service Company. Dj Beef is a dj for the people with specialty in clubs, weddings, private functions, corporate functions, festivals, promotions, Golf days and launches etc.
With eleven years as a professional dj, Dj Beef has played in Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe and major cities in the country. This includes clubs such as Ekhayeni (Bloemfontein), Shoosh and Bar 9(Midrand), 115 (Jhb), Co.Fi (Plk & Hatfield-Pta), Cappello (State Theatre-Pta) to name a few.
He has mentored a lot of djs from the province of Limpopo. These include djs such as Willards, Eephy, Cappuccino, Miz K and Brigga, to name a few. All of them are products of the then Dj School and store Royale Records-Plk (owned by Dj Beef). He has been a mix DJ at Thobela fm, ML fm, Phalaphala fm, YFM, Metro fm and recently Capricorn fm.
