Dj Shimza has landed a massive deal which will see him performing at the Privilege night club every Thursday from 7 June until October. This makes him the first ever South African artist to land such a deal.
He revealed that his sound would be something different to what the Ibiza crowd is used to but he has worked hard to make sure that his music wouldn't be too foreign to the party audience.
Landing residency on the party island is a big deal, it will be a massive boost to his career and build an international fan base. Being a resident Dj at a club also gives Dj Shimza more control over the production.
His real name is Ashley Raphala and he has been a huge fan of house music ever since he was a young child from Tembisa.
As a celebrity he has not forgotten his roots and is involved in a number of charities operating around Tembisa.
As a Dj he has contributed a great deal to the music industry, particularly house music.
