••• THE END •••
I remember when I met DJ Gigantic last year when he was booked at one of my events, he greeted me and went straight to the Dj booth, a clear indication of a hard worker and a passionate guy. Words cannot describe how he delivered his set, mind you he’s so petite but yet can do wonders behind the decks. Indeed he is living proof that dynamite comes in small packages. He has shared the stage with the likes of DJ Noise, Kay 9ine, Mos D, Tzee, Dijo, Segale Mogotsi, Beat junky (track selector), Chad Da Don, L-skillz (track selector), DJ Bucks, Jab Juice, Play Master, Calvin Dismor, DJ Baldwin, Kuli Chana, I could go on and on. He also played at most clubs in and around Pretoria. He’s currently in Sunny Side Pretoria, studying financial accounting and Radio broadcasting at Jintek Varsity College. His hustle shows that the sky is the limit indeed. His determination and drive leaves much to be desired, he has not let all the trials he has been through distract him from pursuing his dreams, and he’s proof that after every struggle greatness follows.
