We chat to talented female DJ on the come up, DJ Ndonie
We love connecting with up and coming talent who are determined to change the status quo of the game. Today we had a young chat with talented Gqom and House DJ, DJ Ndonie. We chat to her about being in a male dominated industry as well as her latest single, Umkhumbi Ka Noah.
Noncebo Mahalngu, better known by her moniker, Ndonie is a budding DJ who is building her brand. Born and bred in Nkandla, in Kwa-Zulu Natal and raised in the township of Newcastle, DJ Ndonie always knew she wanted to pursue music. And this is her time to demonstrate what a force she it!
Q: Which local music artist has inspired your choice in music?
A: Right now, it’s Busiswa.
Q: How would you best describe your sound?
A: Gqom! My music makes people dance, it brings out the fun side of people.
Q: As a female house DJ, what sets you apart from other female acts?
A: I make my own music, music that accommodates everyone.
Q: How you do handle being in a “male dominating” industry?
A: It’s not easy being in a male dominating industry I must say, but I know what I want and what I’m in it for – staying focus, protecting my values and staying in my lane. And that’s what has kept me going so far.
Q: Which of your tracks is your favourite and why?
A: Umkhumbi Ka Noah lol I’ts my 1st successful single and I know it’s a hit. And I really believe it will open great opportunities for me in this industry. And the music video is already out, by the way – you can check it out on YouTube and on the Sibizi Music website.
Q: You’re set to play at Kasi Chillas, Zone 1, Zonkizizwe on the 17th November. What can fans expect?
A: They can expect a full package! I’m going take them to the centre of Jhb (ngeDeep House) to the Streets of Kasi #Soweto (ngeOldSchoool) and then back with me to the dusty streets of KZN (sithiGqom)! So, they must rock their heels and sneakers hhayi amapumps!
