16-year-old Owami Mafokate follows in her parents' musical footsteps

Her dad was known as the Kwaito King and her mom was the lead singer of Afro-pop group Abashantee in the 90s so it's no surprise that music is in young Owami's blood. She's following in her parents' footsteps by entering the musical world as a DJ.

Owami - Dj Owami - is already making a name for herself at the age of 16. Being the daughter of Kwaito musicians Arthur Mafokate and Queen Sesoko, you'd expect her to have at least some musical talent but she's a musician in her own right.

Owami is claiming fame on television with her DJ skills as a DJ on YoTV every Friday.

Music is in their family and her older brother A.J Mafokate occasionally gives her some pointers.

If she's not on YoTV she's sharpening her skills as a young and upcoming D.J.

ZAlebs reports Owami decided to become a DJ after her parents didn't really think she should pursue singing.

I have been singing since I was a kid but my parents don't really want me to do it. They, however, support me by taking me for lessons.
