Sammy Sosa South Africa biography
She was born in East London and grew up in England, Cape Town, and Johannesburg. She celebrates her birthday every November 12, and this year she will be turning 30.

Sammy Sosa children
The famous DJ has a son named AJ. In 2017, she announced that she had given birth to a second son, puzzling the Mzansi since she had kept the pregnancy a secret.
Sammy Sosa began her career at UCT radio. She did not at first think that her career in the radio would grow, so she founded the SML Photography Company in 2010 at the age of 21. She spent three years at the UCT FM before she landed another job as a presenter of Made Different, a programme that aired from 10 am to 12 noon in YFM.
Sammy Sosa Metro FM
She then moved to Metro FM in 2014 and worked as a DJ alongside Mo Flava, hosting The Morning Fix. After a month of working there, she went missing, and people thought that she had been fired after Pearl Thusi was brought in. She then cleared up the air saying that she was ill and that she would return. However, later on, Metro FM confirmed that she was let go.
She then joined Club 808 on ETV and worked there for six months before landing another job by hosting Turn Up on Channel O together with K Naomi and Scoop. In 2015, she became a presenter of the Vuzu filler block V Prime. The same year, she hosted the Vuzu Amp reality competition series Hustle, searching for the next South African hip hop star. She also worked as a host for the Vuzu live entertainment magazine series, V-entertainment.
She has had to move from Cape Town to Johannesburg, which shows that she is committed to her work. As a DJ, her favourite genres are Hip hop and House music.
Sammy Sosa SA fell into hot soup after she tweeted saying, ‘some girls are useless’ referring to a movement founded in Beverly Hills meant to empower black women, #BlackGirls Rock. The hashtag trended for a week because the event was aired on BET in recognition of South African #BackGirls who rock. The radio presenter defended herself, saying that the Mzansi misunderstood her tweet that black girls are useless. She went on to explain that the hashtag was being exploited by using it in irrelevant contexts.
In other Sammy Sosa news, the beautiful DJ got into a feud with the comedian and entrepreneur Inno Matijane. Inno took to Twitter to expose Sammy after she blocked him on social media when she failed to deliver on a music deal they had agreed upon. The young comedian asked her to do the right thing and keep her promise.
Sammy Sosa, being one of the best female radio and TV presenters in South Africa, is an influence to many girls. She has had to juggle her career with motherhood, which shows that she has what it takes to make it in the world.
