But 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.

“During the kid’s toddler stages, his father Glen Hlongwane purchased an iPad for him, which was intended for educational purposes. Over time, a DJ 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.”
