If there is one music duo that has been on the pulse of setting trends and defining the sound of a generation, it is Major League DJz. In the last decade, the duo has established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in South Africa’s music industry and beyond. No one throws a party like Major League DJz. Through their music and popular event properties like Major League Gardens, Members Only and most recently their YouTube first Balcony Mix Africa, the duo has played host to some of the most defining moments in popular culture.
“Major League DJz is led by one of the country’s most innovative female leaders in the artist management industry”, says Major League DJz. “We are privileged to work with Mimi Thabethe, who is our Strategist & Manager. We are constantly inspired by her commitment, the diverse perspective and spirit of teamwork she brings to our business. Leading us to a number of milestones including this amazing announcement of Major League DJz on MTV Base. Mimi has proven to us that competence and the ability to deliver high impact work should always be our main focus.”
For the first time ever, viewers will get up, close and personal with the Major League DJz as they tick off some of their bucket list adventures across the continent with their friends. The limited 8-part series, produced by MTV Base and Soul Candi Studios, will explore their interests and unforgettable travels across Africa as they strive to grow the Major League brand within the African Dance Scene.
“The continued growth and evolution of the Major League brand is a clear representation of African artistic excellence. I am excited that for the first time, viewers will get to see the duo as not just DJs but see them encompass their many titles from father, friend, business men, mentors and dreamers. This is another first for the duo and a great step in reinforcing their brand promise of growing the culture”, says Mimi Thabethe.
The music duo has recently pivoted their sound to Amapiano and have been taking it across South Africa and beyond alongside MTV Base Culture Squad Sensation Uncle Vinny, who will be starring in this season of Inside Life: Major League. The show will also feature cameos from some of Major League’s notable celebrity friends.
