Three-Year-Old SA DJ Goes Global

Johannesburg – He may have not yet mastered the art of signing autographs but a 3-year-old DJ, known as “Arch Junior”, from Alexandra township, is ready to take the world by storm.

Oratilwe “Arch Junior”, who rose to stardom in December after a video of him mixing a popular house tune went viral, has been booked for his first international gig this weekend.

The toddler is set to get people dancing at Botswana’s Annual Kid Festival where he will most likely be the youngest act.

“Apparently the whole of Botswana is waiting for him,” DJ AJ’s father, Glen Hlongwane reveals.

AJ’s humble young parents, Glen and Refilwe Madumo, are stunned by their child’s talent.

“I am sure South Africa is very proud. He is going international just like Trevor Noah [the South African comedian and the next Daily Show host] and Black Coffee [a top South African DJ]. He is going to be another kid that’s going to put the country on the map,” Glen says beaming with pride.

Star quality

According to Glen and Refilwe, Bow Wow, Keri Hilson, The Game and Missy Elliot are among some of the international super stars who have recognised star quality in their son.

“They saw his video and posted about him on Twitter saying this kid is going to be famous,” the couple says.

It has been a rollercoaster ride for the family since little AJ first hit the spotlight five months ago, reported the Alex Times.
