Cape Town! Meet your guest judge: DJ Cleo
Award winning, chart topping and hit making producer, DJ Cleo is Cape Town's guest judge!
If you sat down and tried to find a producer with countless hits to his name, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone else other than DJ Cleo. The multi-award winning DJ is widely regarded as one of South Africa’s young music legends and rightfully so.
As a musician DJ Cleo has a career that spans well over a decade with 11 albums released and production work for Pitch Black Afro, Mzekezeke, the late great Mandoza and more of South Africa’s biggest stars.
This weekend though he’ll be lending his carefully curated ear to the Idols panel as the guest judge for the Cape Town leg of auditions. And for those who don’t know already, impressing him will be no easy task!
Being no stranger to South African Idols, DJ Cleo previously worked with season 11 finalist Mmatema on the infectious dance single “Choose To Be Happy” and mentored the starlet during the final stages of the competition.
Now the stakes are even higher for Cape Town’s hopefuls as they try impress a musician known for his love and passion for a multitude of genres that include jazz, kwaito, house and even hip hop. Will anyone have the magic formula to crack a yes out of DJ Cleo?
