Fans and followers of DJ and music producer DBN Gogo had a go at each other online following the incredible revelation that the KwaZulu-Natal-based entertainer was the most booked female DJ last year.
Mzansi’s multi-faceted music landscape served up plenty of thrills and spills across the length and breadth of the industry, with the likes of power music servants DJ Zinhle and Lerato Kganyago doing their bit to ensure that things remained interesting.
Added to the mix has been the vibrant newcomer Uncle Waffles, who captured the minds of Mzansi with her dynamic dance moves, and more recently, one DJ Hlo, another KZN-based DJ, who recently scooped the Song of the Year on ethnic radio station Ukhozi FM.

“DBN Gogo was the most booked female DJ in 2021.”
Inevitably, the sentiment spread like wildfire before blowing up massively as other users of the microblogging platform chipped in with their two cents’ worth on the topic. At the time of publishing, the tweet had attracted more than 7 500 likes.
Some users claimed the fact that she’s former energy minister Jeff Radebe’s daughter gives her the added advantage of a wide pool of connections (in high places). But it’s unknown whether this small fact would’ve had anything to do with her landing on Spotify’s music charts billboard in Times Square in October.
Tweeps have their say
Regardless, many of her adoring fans converged on the tweet to raise a glass to the young trailblazer, gushing and celebrating her every achievement to date. Briefly News received the invite and headed to the comments strip to bring readers all the colourful reactions to the post.
“Far less impressive when you remember she’s a Shimza (DJ with ANC connections).”
“I wonder if this would be the case if she was not related to a minister. Pls don’t come for me.”
“She’s not so good at it though. Only saw one female DJ who knows how to mix and got the best track selection.”
DBN Gogo billboard goes up in New York’s Times Square
Elsewhere, Briefly News previously reported that DBN Gogo celebrated one of the biggest wins of her life after making it onto the Times Square billboard in New York.
After a then-fresh off a European tour in Amsterdam, the hot DJ continued on the upward trend, this time by taking over the Big Apple. She took to her @GBNGOGO Twitter account to share the major move with her followers, who were every bit as excited to get the fresh scoop.
“Banna, I’m on a billboard in Times Square,” she tweeted.
The reaction garnered by the tweet came as little surprise, attracting more than 24 000 likes and more than 2 000 retweets and 200 comments.
