Fans were shocked to learn that South African disc jockey and producer DJ Maphorisa was younger than they had assumed when he recently celebrated his birthday.

The muso has maintained his privacy despite his fame and his collaborations with or production credits with some of the biggest stars in global pop, like Drake and Black Coffee. Information regarding his personal life is scarce. Fans therefore experienced a sort of joy when they solved the problem of determining his age.

The singer was born in Pretoria, South Africa, on November 15, 1987. He’d always had a fascination for music, even as a small child. But at the time, gqom served as his pedestal.


In any case, DJ Maphorisa made it a point to explore amapiano music after meeting with Nigerian musician Wizkid, who was impressed by the sound and inquired about it. Since then, he has not turned back.

Rather, he has emerged as one of the most prominent voices in the genre in South Africa, with Kabza De Small, as one of the Piano Kings.

Alright, many happy returns to the renowned “Gqom Waves” member Lawd Porry.
