CherryDeep with your #LunchTymMix
Small towns are candidates for bringing forth stars that showcase a different flavor in this global village and Heidelberg in the East of Johannesburg is no different. CherryDeep (real name Lesedi Mofokeng) is a product of Heidelberg but currently resides in the city of gold, the melting pot of rich music a place formally known as Johannesburg.
In a bid to make a success of her passion for deep house music she, CherryDeep a deep house deejay, is inspired by the successful ones that have gone before her such as; Dj Buhle, Mvelo, Miss Kay Dee, MalKom, Scotch Flavio, Thobs just to name a few. The diligent work and success of these deejays have inspired CherryDeep -an aspiring influential female deejay- to put in as much work, time and effort like them that she looks up to.
Every star has a beginning and CherryDeep’s began at a very tender age when her older brother influenced her to delve deep into deep house music. Since then she has not looked back, deep house is her mantra. To take her passion a step further, she learnt how to mix early 2014 and took another step by joining the Soul Candi Music Institute where she successfully completed a Dj101 course. She specializes in subgenres; Deep House and Tech.
