DJ Cleo remembers the day DJ Fresh gave him his big break in the industry

Trying to break into the music industry or make a living as a musician in South Africa requires a lot of nepotism and not a little bit of luck. We all know an artist who is good at what they do but the odds of them getting a big break in the industry are slim to nothing. DJ Cleo, is one of those artists who never thought it was possible to make it in the music industry, until he met DJ Fresh.

Taking to social media, the star reminisced 20years back when he got his big break in the industry.

DJ Cleo said he went to start work at YFM as a technical producer & mix dj for DJ Fresh.

The producer revealed that day was a night before his 21st birthday bash.

He said later that year, DJ Fresh gave him an official entry into the music industry.

DJ Cleo promised to buy a car for Fresh just to say thank you to him.

He wrote: “On this day 20yrs I was about to leave home to start work at YFM as technical producer & mix dj for @DJFreshSA (the night before was my 21st birthday bash) later that year he gave me official entry into the music industry. Imma buy u a car just to say I THANK YOU (kea leboga)”
