Bolobedu-born DJ is taking the entertainment industry by storm as he continues to churn out belting tunes.
Known as DJ Ceephonik, Cyril Malematja was born at Malematja village (Bolobedu) on the outskirt of Tzaneen but now stays in Kgapane. He started his music journey back in 2009 when he used to be a DJ at a local tavern. He says that he always had a special liking for the entertainment industry even when he was still at school. He learned to DJ by using Virtual DJ Software.
DJ Ceephonik was voted by fans to play or DJ on MTV Base. “It was great feeling getting a tweet from MTV when they were looking for my contact details. I initiated it and they supported me. It was a great feeling knowing that there are people who’ve got my back. I haven’t been where I want to be and I am hoping to achieve a lot”.
Being on MTV this year was one of Ceephonik major career highlights. He thanked everyone who has been with him throughout the journey. “I did not start this journey alone. I thank everyone who supported me. I appreciate you all,” said the DJ.
