Former Proteas and Highveld Lions cricketer Lonwabo Tsotsobe is pursuing his passion for music by becoming a DJ after he was handed an eight-year ban last year for breaching Cricket South Africa’s Anti-Corruption Code.

Tsotsobe admitted to one charge of contriving to fix a match during the 2015 domestic Ram Slam T20 Challenge.

The 33-year-old, now known as DJ Tso, recently told Drum magazine that he has always loved music and would entertain friends as a hobby while playing professional cricket.
