Judy Jay, a nineteen year old DJ from a small village in Limpopo, called Sekhukhune, has been announced as the Diesel Denim Friday winner. She took the championship from a pool of over seventy DJs across the country.
Brought into the competition by HERO DJ, Lamiez Holworthy, this young female DJ has already been building up quite the following on Instagram, with over 42 thousand followers who have been rooting for her to win the DJ competition. With only two years of experience in the industry, Judy, has cemented her place as one of the country’s best up and coming DJs.
“Being a part of DDF has been such an honour. Not only because we got to experience new talent but because we also got to give new and upcoming DJs such a great platform. I insisted on putting women on because I know how much harder it is for us in this cut throat and male dominated industry. I also feel like women like Judy Jay deserve all the help that they can get because they shouldn’t have to suffer as much as we did coming up.”

Shimza announced the winner through the Diesel Denim Friday microsite to which Judy was completely speechless when she found out she had won, and immediately burst into tears when it had finally sunk it.
“I am truly overwhelmed and excited about this at the same time I am so so grateful to have come out on top of this one because Diesel has for a very long time been my favorite brand. I honestly do not take any of this for granted and truly feel blessed. This couldn’t have been possible without all the love surrounding me from my close ones but most importantly my fans as well. I love them so much. Thank you so much.”
