Vusimuzi Ntatshana has so much on his hands, including being a teacher, club and community radio DJ, and recording label owner, that his friends now call him "DJ Muzi.GP".

"The GP stands for general practitioner and it is because I run a matric rewrite school in Pretoria. I am a well-known club DJ, am a popular Friday evening DJ at the Tshwane University of Technology radio station Tut Top Stereo. I also run a music recording label," he says.

His debut album My House Muzimania has just been released by his recording label. He speaks passionately about it.

"Unlike several house music albums, I have not imported and remixed international hits, or their bits.

"Everything on this album, from the lyrics to the beats, I've done myself. I have not appropriated anyone's music locally or overseas," he says.

Considering how he started as a lowly-paid DJ at weddings, he has come a long way. He may not be well-known beyond the confines of the clubs and the community radio station Tut Stereo, but that is changing,

"When I was approached the station was struggling. It had a listenership of 4000 which shot up to 25000. I think I had a hand in the increase of the figures," he says.

Vusimuzi is a hot club DJ in Pretoria at the Nite Sport, Club 55, Caribbean Lounge, Al Vegas in Witbank and the Base in Hillbrow.

"Who would think people would consider having fun in Hillbrow a few years ago? But now it is happening," he says.

DJ Vusimuzi Ntatshana launches his CD at Al Vegas in Witbank on Saturday nextweek.
