DJ Zinhle never aspired on becoming a DJ. She only got into it because of chance and circumstance. Her brother Zak owned a company that hired out sound equipment, and he had so much love for music that he would always de-stress through mixing vinyls at home. One day he showed her how mixing works.
Her first on the deck gig happened when she was helping her brother set up for an event. The DJ was late, so Zinhle stepped in and slowly became in love with the art breaking some ground in the male dominated industry.

Jika Majika is a popular SABC1 youth show that showcases the latest dance moves. Zinhle was selected as the DJ for the show from 2006 to 2009, this pushed Zinhle into the spotlight and made her a household name.
