Three-year-old DJ Arch Jnr to perform alongside Black Coffee, Todd Terry and more
At three years old, DJ Arch Jnr has celebrated more headlines than he has birthday parties. Financially more successful than many DJs ten times his age, the toddler won $35,000 in November after winning “South Africa’s Got Talent”.
Now, the young DJ is passing the point of being purely a gimmick, having been granted a slot at “Back To The Old Skool,” a concert featuring established house stalwarts such as Black Coffee, DJ Christos and more taking place in Johannesburg on Saturday‚ February 27. The irony of including DJ Arch Jnr in a lineup celebrating old school house is furthered by its inclusion of the”godfathers of house,” Roger Sanchez‚ David Morales‚ Jazzie B, and Todd Terry — effectively manifesting the show as a baptism for the young DJ. The announcement of this lineup indicates that DJ Arch Jnr’s publicity may not be a one-time stunt: he may be making the rounds for awhile — or, at the very least, until he has to enroll in grade school.
