DJ Pruluv opens up the industry for female DJs this Women’s Month
After a successful 4 years as a Radio and Club DJ, DJ Pruluv has opened up the industry by giving up-and-coming female DJs a platform through the Pruluv Sessions.
Throughout the month of August, which is Women’s Month, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, DJ Pruluv is hosting the Pruluv Sessions on her Instagram Page via Live Streaming.
Having been booked every weekend for the past 4 years, DJ Pruluv, took note that as a club DJ, her djing career has been hit hard by the Lockdown.
With bookings all weekend for the 21st and the 28th of March, it came as a shock and blow when President Cyril Ramaphosa announced on the16th of March that all gatherings were prohibited with immediate effect.
The subsequent closing of clubbing venues worsened matters further, negatively affecting all DJs in the country, in various forms, particularly financially.
End of the road for some DJs…
With the extension of the Lockdown, the country is witnessing more DJs pull the plug on their careers and give up, due to djing as a career, becoming obsolete.
DJing is already a male dominated industry, therefore it is the female DJs that are the hardest hit and many may never be able to revive their careers again, post Lockdown.
Also, numerous individuals who have tried their luck in the entertainment industry have complained that it’s the same people that get opportunities, meaning up-and-coming talent have a minimal chance of cracking it in the industry.
It is for all these reasons that DJ Pruluv decided to revive the spirit of up-and-coming female DJs to continue pushing their passion of djing, by sharing her connections with them.
The Pruluv Sessions are an initiative to give up-and-coming female DJs, a platform to showcase their djing skills, with the aim of “plugging” them to event promoters, radio personalities and the public, who have supported DJ Pruluv over the years.
