Oratilwe AJ Hlongwane also known as DJ Arch Jnr is a South African DJ and he is just the cutest! He is 6-years-old and took South Africa by storm when he won South Africa’s Got Talent back in 2015.

Now he has taken to an interantional stage and has performed/competed in America’s Got Talent, Champions edition. Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel loved him so much, they gave him a standing ovation.

“During the kid’s toddler stages, his father Glen Hlongwane purchased an ipad for him, which was intended for educational purposes. Overtime, a djay software was installed to have fun and play around with. There were clear signs of efficient operation of the app, while showing off formidable skills of deejay talent, that was naturally transferred onto live equipment.”

The Champions spinoff includes competitors from all over the world.

“I have always wanted to have a competition show for the very best of the best Got Talent acts from around the world. The variety and the talents of the acts who enter Got Talent globally are incredible and unbelievable.” – Simon Cowell

Glen, the young dj’s father still believes education is a top priority and at home, he is treated like a regular kid. He still attends school and does normal things outside of his career behind the decks.
