DJ Oskido (born 29 November 1967) is a South African musician, disc jockey, music producer, and a known businessman. He has been active in the South African music industry for more than 26 years and has contributed mainly to popularizing the “Kwaito” genre of music and the rise of “Afrohouse” and new generational genres like “Amapiano.”
Oscar Sibonginkosi Mdlongwa was born on November 23, 1967, into the family of late Mr. Espah Mdlongwa, a Zimbabwean politician, and Miss Emily Sophia Molefi, a South African mother in Oukasie Township Brits which is North West of South Africa. He spent most of his early days in Zimbabwe, where he attended and completed his primary education before moving to Brits to run the family business. He ran the family business before leaving for Johannesburg to start a music career.
The record producer started his career by volunteering to perform at the ” Razzmatazz” club when the scheduled DJ could not function. Late Ian Sigola was instrumental in guiding him in the club scene by giving him his Vinyl. After working on diverse songs and creating his sound in the studio, he later went on to drop the disk compilation “Mix Master” and “Big Jam,” which helped increase his popularity in South Africa.
He later met Bruce “Dope” Sebitlo, a South African artist who included DJ Oskido in his “Brothers of Peace” music group. Under the Brothers of Peace group, DJ Oskido and Sebitlo worked effectively to produce and release up to 8 albums from 1994 to 2004. Some of the releases include Kwaito Classic “Makwerekwere,” which discouraged xenophobia, and Traffic Cop, Project A, and Zabakza, Afro-house pioneers.
