DJ Sweet Candy is passionate about playing good music.
Inspired by DJ Zinhle, she got into the industry to become a hit maker.
Born Matshepo Matabane, the 25-year-old from Ga-Mphahlele, Limpopo moved to Joburg to pursue her dream of being a deejay.
Sweet Candy is currently working on a new song titled My Journey, which she plans to release soon.
“The song is a summary of what I have gone through and where I am now. It’s a fun song that tells my story.”
Her music encourages listeners to have a good time and live a life that makes them happy.
“People are facing a lot of bad things and they need to take some time off to have fun.”
She said she fell in love with music when she was in high school.
“I always knew I would earn a living from deejaying.
“My family was worried because most people in the entertainment industry die broke.”
Her first gig was in 2010 and she said that is when people started taking her seriously.
“My first gig was the highlight of my career.
“As women in a male-dominated industry, we have to work twice as hard as men.”
DJ Sweet Candy said she is currently learning how to make beats because she wants to produce her own music.
