MALAWI MOYO - MEET RJ THE DJ

MALAWI MOYO - MEET RJ THE DJ

Meet RJ, she is a Malawi-based DJ and the first to feature in our new series Malawi Moyo, or Malawi Life! In each instalment, we will be showcasing people doing awesome things within their communities or across Malawi as a whole.

As Malawi is a country extremely dear to us and is the main focus of our fight against water poverty, we thought it a good idea to introduce you to some of our favourite Malawians. 

We came across RJ on our hunt for new office tunes. She popped up on Soundcloud, we gave her mixes a listen and they've been on repeat ever since. Listen to them here.

Check out our wee Q&A below to find out more about RJ: 

1. Where are you from

I am from Lilongwe, the Capital of Malawi

2. What do you love most about Malawi?

I love the sun and the lake. These two things give me so much life! But the people here are also quite awesome. 

3. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I enjoying playing music a lot but series are my weakness as well. And food. I love cooking and eating!

4. What is the best location you’ve played

All the locations I have played are awesome. Each experience is different so that makes it all the more fun. I had a great time at the Tumaini Festival last year which is held at Dzaleka Refugee camp!

5. What does Madzi Ndi Moyo mean to you

We all need water. And clean water is essential. Those of us who have it take it for granted. Water really is life!

6. What inspired you to start DJing

I realized that I want to make people happy and if I can do that through music it makes me happy. Music makes me happy and sharing it with other people is a blessing.

7. Who’s your biggest musical influence?

Dj Zinhle from South Africa is my biggest role model. She is what/who I want to be when I grow up. lol

8. What advice would you give to young women in Malawi trying to enter a male-dominated industry?

You are just as good and capable as the next man. Do not let them tell you otherwise.

 

Keep an eye peeled on our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for our next Malawi Moyo feature.
