‘Oe Batla Kae’ hitmaker rides crest of the wave - report
Aspiring house music producer Da Mogul, whose Oe Batla Kae song has become a national anthem on dance floors, started music as a hobby.
Da Mogul, whose real name is Tshepo Rangaka, said he gravitated towards music because of his friends.
"My boys had sound equipment and they liked doing music, so I started as a DJ after matriculating."
The 27-year-old DJ from Mahikeng in North West said when he was in his second year at university, he developed an interest for producing music and decided to learn the craft.
"I taught myself music production watching YouTube videos, and I started to produce sounds that were influenced by Da Capo and Culoe De Song," he said.
