South Africans celebrate ‘Youngest DJ in the world’, DJ Arch Jnr
South Africans can’t stop talking on social media about a video of a six-year-old DJ from Johannesburg’s Alex township.
DJ Arch Junior took America’s Got Talent TV show by storm earlier this week and entertainment journalists agree the video has well-and-truly gone viral:
DJ Arch Junior, whose real name is Oratilwe AJ Hlongwane, impressed judges – receiving a standing ovation and huge praise from Simon Cowell.
Mr Cowell said:
You and I need to be talking after the show cause I have some plans for you. Trust me! I think you are a total, total little star and I absolutely love you.”
When his set was over, the former Spice Girl and music talent judge Mel B exclaimed “I didn’t want him to stop,” followed by Terry Crews who said “That’s incredible!”
After the show one of South Africa’s biggest DJs tweeted a good luck message:
At six-years-old, we are pretty sure he is the world’s youngest DJ. But, incredibly, he has been at the decks for years. (DAN with BBC report)
