Who has inspired your music?
Dj N: My interest in being a DJ came after listening to DJ Lesoul House Mixtape on Radio FM. I remember I was doing my matric year at that time and it was a stressful year for me because of exams we had to prepare. DJ Lesoul’s house mix were incredible and very unique, her house mix use to play on Saturdays evening, I knew that time I will leave everything and go dance for an hour that she played on radio. Her music brought so much power and energy in my dance moves. I would sweat profusely while dancing to her music. Her music inspired me a lot because not only did it make me dance but it created so much joy in me and lessened stress of my upcoming exams. Her music had so much power and magicover my emotions. As a dancer I also wanted to have that kind of magic to make people dance and feel in a certain way that will make them feel better, I wanted to create the same magic and make people dance on dance floor. DJ Lesoul inspired me into loving house music, she encouraged me that we as female artists can also be recognized in the industry, hearing a female DJ taking over the show on Radio FM really inspired me a lot and also to not give up in what I have always wanted which was to become a DJ. Music has played an immense role in my love of dance as i also grew up listening to different genres of music.

Durban is known for the idyllic beaches of the golden mile, it’s the world – class surf sports and active Indian community. I enjoy going to the beach and Durban has the best beaches around that you can go too. My favourite one have to be beach front for many reasons, it has warm water, good waves, and I love taking walk on beach especially in the morning. There’s so much fun activities around the area such as going to Shaka Marine world and game reserves as well.
