In an interview with Level Up Live Music Sessions, the Mzansi entertainer was asked where he came up with DJ Njelic. He replied,
The name Njelic started as Njenji. My name is Tshwarelo, my surname is Motlhako, and back then, in high school, I used to play soccer while deejaying elsewhere. But now, for soccer, it is easier for you to get a name, so I was named Njenji because of Palacious.
However, since there was another person with a similar name to Njenji, he decided to call himself Njelic. He also expressed that he was a very good soccer player.
Not much about his family is known. However, he recently spoke about his mother in an interview with Tbose on My top 10 at 10.
Speaking about his mother, he said that he adores her and thinks she's a cheery person. He also holds her in high regard and appreciates her for taking care of him through his childhood.
My mother was a very jolly person who loved speaking. She was one of those mothers who were never afraid of reprimanding you. She was very popular in the community, and everyone wanted to be around her. She was very outspoken, loved alcohol, and just hanging out.
He also expressed that he grew up with a step-father whom he described as a good man who loved to work. The man stepped up and became a father figure for Njelic. He added,
At first, I didn't like the idea of him dating my mother, but as time went on, I noticed that this person is making m mother happy. You cant give your mother all the happiness in the world.
