Audition to win a slot on DJ Zinhle’s all-female band
DJ Zinhle’s all-female band will be the epitome of girl power, audition now.
For the past 15 years, DJ Zinhle has been a stalwart for women empowerment, having co-founded FUSE Academy- a DJ school specifically for women.
She also held the Pink Revolution Conference; a music conference aimed at empowering women and was also the centre of a TV show called It Takes A Village, which aimed to help young women through social skills.
Now she is inviting women to become part of her band.
“My passion for women empowerment started with my own journey of being of the few female DJs in the music industry,” she said. “Just understanding how much tougher it can be for females because the opportunities are always geared towards helping males,” she said.
Speaking about why she wants a band, the celebrated DJ said:
“Whenever there are opportunities around my brand, I try to share them with other women,” she said. “I am proof that women do get along. My business is mostly run by women. It makes sense and is more fun that way. With regards to the band, it’s a nicer concept to sell visually, and it’s something that can be big overseas too.
“I always wanted to be in a band and envied people like Black Motion. But I can’t sing, so I couldn’t be in a band, but things have changed so much, and my dream can come true. And 15 years in the game is the right time to expand into that direction. The bassist and drummer are only the beginning.”
